    Covid the jab and the final stage.

    Just back in from seeing Frank Turner at the Roundhouse in Camden. It was worse than de Montford Hall in Leicester on Thursday evening. Didn’t ask for a covid pass or proof of a negative test, despite the website saying it’s a condition of entry. Hall was packed and not a mask in sight. Most...

    New Mango Pale Ale from Mangrove Jacks

    I very much doubt it, but why would you bother even trying it?

    Covid the jab and the final stage.

    It doesn’t really bother me, but if you’re going to have a system in place to protect people, you’d think it might actually be run properly. This was not a pub - it was an established concert venue and they honestly couldn’t give a toss whether you were negative/positive or had a valid covid...

    Mangrove Jacks Australian Pale Ale

    Stop it! Stop posting really positive reviews which immediately make me want to go out and buy yet another kit for which I don’t have the capacity or bottles!

    Covid the jab and the final stage.

    Went to my first gig for two years last night. Conditions for entry were either a covid pass or a negative lateral flow test. I'm double jabbed so had a covid pass on my phone. Bloke on the door looked at it for a split second and said "That's fine mate". Didn't scan the QR code or even check...

    New Mango Pale Ale from Mangrove Jacks

    I agree - with all the MJ kits I've added either MJ's liquid malt extract (1.2 kg), or light spraymalt. Either works fine and both give great results.

    New Mango Pale Ale from Mangrove Jacks

    I've been looking out for your review as I was intrigued to know what this one would be like. MJ Pink Grapefruit IPA and the Juicy Session are probably the two best kits I've done, so to hear this one is at least as good, or even better, is fantastic news. Definitely on my 'to do' list! Thanks...

    GEB Galaxy Pale Ale Beer Kit

    Great review! I did one of the GEB kits recently (Citra IPA) and was impressed. Really good to hear that this one hits the mark as well. Another to add to the ever-increasing 'to do' list!

    The 'Recommend me a TV series' thread

    Just finished 'Unorthodox' on Netflix. The story of a girl who runs from an hasidic jewish community in Williamsburg, NY. Only four parts so an easy watch, but I really enjoyed it. Shira Haas, who plays the girl, is absolutely superb!

    E10 fuel.

    Interestingly, it appears that though my car will be fine, my lawnmower will not. E10 is not recommended for lawnmowers because it is usually stored for a number of months during the winter. This means that I’ll have to fill up my little container with about £1.50 worth of unleaded, which will...

    St Peters Cream Stout

    As others have said, get them back into the warm. One week is not enough. I always leave them for two weeks and as I use PET bottles, I can gauge the fact that carbonation is taking place by feeling the pressure increase as the bottles 'tighten'. The bottles are ALWAYS tighter at the end of two...

    Best opening song lyrics.

    Get 'Er Brewed Lupomax Citra IPA Beer Kit review

    Thank you! I always find reviews helpful as a guide to what I might brew next, so always make sure to do a review on here whenever I do a kit. It's nice to hear that you enjoy them! The Citra IPA is decent, but it's not as good as the MJ Juicy Session IPA. I'd also put it below the MJ Pink...
