    Tall refurbed kegs

    Can anyone recommend a website to get decent refurbished cornies at a reasonable price. I’m looking for the tall kegs 630x210mm. Most of the sites I’m looking at only stock the shorter fatter kegs 560x230mm.

    Long beer line problem

    When I have 2m of 3/16 line on the keg in the utility room, no problems, but my new set up has 15m of 3/8 beer line from my keg to my tap and I am really struggling to get this set up right. The keg is at ambient temp in the garage and I was dispensing at about 15-20psi (have tried several...

    Blue Stone IPA

    Spent the last week in Pembrokeshire where I was lucky enough to try a fantastic IPA and PA by Blue Stone brewery based in Newport. Two very nice fruity beers that I would love to have a go at brewing. Has anyone got any idea which hops are used in these beers?

    What are you drinking tonight 2021?

    Just cracked the latest keg after a long day painting railings in the garden. This one’s called scorchio PA - el dorado, citra, chinook and a generous slice of amarillo. Can’t see this keg lasting long!

    The 'Recommend me a TV series' thread

    Time started on BBC 1 last night, prison drama with Stephen Graham and Sean Bean. Very intense! watched the second episode on iPlayer tonight. Really gritty drama. Edge of the seat stuff. We’re hooked!

    Cestrian Brewday

    This turned out nice! It’s a beautiful bank holiday Monday for a change. Just sat in the back garden trying this new brew. The Ardennes yeast reminds me a lot of Duvel or La Chouffe, and there’s definitely a bit of orange coming through in the finish from the Mandarina Bavaria. Nice summer quaffer.

    Maltose Syrup

    I used to work at Cargill in Manchester. They make most of the glucose syrup in the UK that goes into all your sweets, cakes, jams, fizzy drinks and beer. They can make a spectrum of any molecule lengths of glucose to suit almost any confectionary application. So for hard candy it's a very...

    My Claim to Fame

    I met Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen in Clintons Cards in the Trafford Centre. My wife was a big fan of Changing Rooms at the time and as luck would have it, it was her birthday the next day, so I bought a birthday card and asked him to sign it to my wife. Nice chap! Anyway for a laugh I told her that...
