    Directors - Quick question

    I have brewed this beer about 10 times now, its a shame Muntons have discontinued it, I have always gone from the FV to Bottle with a level T/S of brewing sugar per 500ml and never had a problem. I don't like my beers to over carbed, so this is just right for me. The longer Directors is left in...

    Any Fastferment conical FV users out there?

    I purchased two 30lt SS Conical Fermenters for less than £120 each delivered, one from eBay and the other from Amazon both unbranded and from abroad. I have been very impressed with these FV's easy to clean handy tap at the bottle which I use to bottle and because the Trub is concentrated into...

    All grain brewing or kits

    Try the Part Grain kits, you only need a 15lt pot and then the normal FV brewing kit. These kits only take around 2.5-3 hours and are a great way to get started in the real brewing world, slightly more than the tinned kits but a whole lot better IMHO

    How many kegs do you own

    Courage Directors

    Yes IMHO its taste exactly like the draught Directors, I always have this brew on the go. I would say though the longer it is left after bottling or kegging the better it gets!

    Part Grain Brewing Kits

    The grain mash took 30 minutes on our Kitchen Gas ring. The mash & malt Boil took 60 mins at 100degrees rolling boil, at no point did I need any towels or anything to wrap the pot as it kept its boiling temp fine, the grain was a bit more work as it has to be kept at 65 degrees so it was just a...
