    If you were to start over from scratch, what would you....

    Equipment recommendations

    Water authority reports are fairly generic so the actual figures they give may not represent what you are getting out of your tap. For around £25 Phoenix Analytical will give you an accurate test. I do this once a year then test the alkalinity and calcium before each brew with salifert tests.

    Have THBC stopping delivering to UK?

    O my God

    This retched stuff has been around for a while now. As usual the daily fail is well behind the times. As an old fart I had the misfortune to drink this stuff in my youth. If anyone does have a recipe please keep it to yourself.
