    Muntons Tap Room Series

    The review is up. Muntons haven't actually done badly here at all, but I would bear in mind that the brewer used Dark Rock's enhancer, which is excellent stuff and will improve most, if not all, one tin kits.

    Mangrove Jacks Citra IPA review

    Definitely a kit I will do again. It's right up there with the very best of the extract kits I've ever done.

    Muntons Tap Room Series

    The Partridge Brothers are reviewing a couple of these on their YouTube channel - the Lazy Days IPA and the Coffee Porter. Should land in a couple of weeks time.

    Mangrove Jacks Mango Pale Ale review

    Kit started 19th May 2022. Added 1.5kg Mangrove Jacks Pure Liquid Malt Extract (Light), Pure Brew, and then made up to 23L with Tesco Ashbeck mineral water. Fermented in brew fridge at 20°C.

    Muntons Tap Room Series

    I saw those being advertised the other day. Think they're just out so probably no reviews yet, but they look interesting.

    New kit - Mangrove Jacks Single Hopped Sabro IPA

    Great stuff - I'll look forward to your review as I've not seen any mention of this kit on any of the online review channels. Hope it's a winner!

    Dark Rock kits

    Look forward to you posting a review soon. Since watching the Partridge Brothers review, I've had the Riwaka Pale Ale on my list.

    MYO Lager Kit Advice (newbie to beer/lager making)

    Do you have any means of temperature control? It's very warm at the moment and set to get even warmer next week. Lager generally requires a lower fermenting temperature than ale which might be hard to achieve unless you have a brew fridge? Depending on where you keep your FV when fermenting...

    Scottish independence -

    Blackford’s hounding of Charles Kennedy when he was at his lowest, was absolutely disgusting.

    Scottish independence -

    I actually feel sorry for the majority of people in Scotland - that's the majority who don't vote for the SNP and the majority who voted in 2014 to remain in the Union in a 'once in a generation referendum'. Sturgeon is perfectly happy to ignore each and every one of them in her pursuit of more...

    Storing beer once fermentation is complete

    Thank you - you just made my day as I can now stop worrying about all the beer in my shed!

    Storing beer once fermentation is complete

    I'm lucky enough to have a brew fridge so can brew all year round, but I've just put my latest brew (Mangrove Jacks Mango Pale Ale) into the garden shed in PET bottles having finished secondary fermentation. The shed gets the sun on its roof for 3/4 hours in the morning, but obviously there's no...

    Mangrove Jacks Citra IPA review

    I’m amazed that anyone would think it’s too much citra. Too many hops can just as easily spoil a beer as too few, but I think the balance on this one is outstanding.

    Dark Rock kits

    The verdict is 10/10.
