    Came downstairs this morning to a burst bottle

    I have had a few bottles go off over the years, you would think that it is the crown cap that is the weak point but if the caps are on right they are stronger than the glass. This means the bottle actually explodes or if there is any weak point in the glass it goes at that point.

You temperature control over your fermentation for the lager, ales are a bit more flexible. Brewing Classic Styles talks...

    Storing Protofloc tablets in the fridge

    Hi, Don't store them in the fridge, they will get damp. This will cause them to fall apart, which in itself is not so much of an issue but it may well effect how they react with your wort, as in, not so effective. Ambient temperature will be fine.

    Regulator help

    The brass part that you you screw the JG fitting into has a flat face, the JG fitting is tapered. JG don't do a fitting purpose made for this. It's not in the product description as it is not sold for this purpose. If you use it without taking the taper off it may well seal for a while as the...

    The sugar is there for good reason as it adds fermentables without adding body, in fact it thins it out a little. This is very common in all sorts of European brewing as it allows big alcohol percentage whilst keeping the beer drinkable. Make an 7+% all malt beer and it will be sipper! make it...
