    Ball bags

    The needle is the worst part, the ache is the most annoying and uncomfortable. I needed an extra injection in my left too. I could feel him pulling and what felt like sawing a "rubber" tube! Not as painful as the needle but the kind of thing that makes u feel queezy! Ice pack, bed rest and...

    Overrated beers

    I firmly believe John Smith's is only ever bought because everything else to quote my early 60s father "Are too gassy!" Doom bar, Pedigree, Bass, etc are an extension of this from the point they are either equal to or slightly better than John Smith's. In terms of Euro lager. They are all...

    Beer is fermenting but gravity remains the same

    I may be barking up the wrong tree but would some amylase help or is that something to use prior to fermentation. Or is it something that would strip the body too much and leave it too dry?

    Is there any way to increase the "appleyness" in a TC?

    There's was a guy called brew master Ben on YouTube who did different TCs with different yeasts and preferred an ale yeast; with one of his points being it retained more apple flavour. He's not made any videos for years but he's a lot more watchable than some other youtubers. He's been...
