    Looking at the state of the flue seal I'd be cautious running it in a closed room withput a CO monitor nearby. Honestly, if he was serious he could have spent a few minutes cleaning it up a bit.

    Any self respecting chimpanzee would be most offended to be called a monkey. They'd probably clock you with a crowbar.

    I wish our builders had done something like that when they did our roof - it makes the front a lot neater!

    Drilling a lid for an airlock grommet

    When fitting grommets in other situations I have found a drop of soap liquid helps. Also, when drilling the lid, I would suggest have the lid itself at a cosy room temperature to minimise chance of it cracking.

    All that zooming in and out's making me sea sick.

    It’s brown, it’s dry, it’s been dug up by bandicoots, but this Tasmanian garden is a prize winner. Kathleen Murray is the proud victor of the first World’s Ugliest Lawn competition after the Swedish contest, which encourages water-saving and environmentally-friendly gardening, went global. The...

    Little Bottler

    Agreed CT, I did find the same as you - if I grounded the tube in the bottle the flow would be less than if it was then raised a touch. But even that 'raised-a-touch' flow was well less than the flow I'd get using the wand with the whole cartridge detached. I do recollect taking one apart and...

    Little Bottler

    I have a number of these bottling wands (Little Bottler type). Seemed like the bees knees at first, but after a while I too found that they get slower at delivering the flow. The spring loaded valve in the doohickey at the end of the rigid tube seems to not quite clear the housing that it...

    Equipment For Sale FOR SALE new iSpindels - fully build and tested - £25 collected or £30 posted

    I'm finding that on my last few brews the battery runs down after a week or less. How long would you expect an iSpindel to be active from a full charge? And do iSpindel batteries have a shelf life? iSpindel was purchased under 2 years ago, October '21.

    What are you reading ?

    I found Klara and The Sun by Kazuo Ishiguro a bit of a let down tbh. I had loved The Remains of the Day, but Klara didn't quite do it for me. Just started (well, part way through) Luna : New Moon, firt in the Luna series by Ian McDonald, following a glowing review I read on line. Pretty good so...

    What was your first car?

    First car I bought was a half share in a Mini, bought together with a mate at Uni. He then drove it into a ditch as we were driving back to Reading from the seller's house :-(

    No iSpindel data showing up after battery recharge

    Curious - after a day, without me doing anything to the unit, it connected up to my wifi same as it had done before.I have noo idea why it did now when it had not done before. The perversity of the inanimate.

    No iSpindel data showing up after battery recharge

    Oh I fished it out already. I don't think this brew is going to be doing anything much now. Yeah, I bought this one already-configured so I've never done the reset-and-log-in exercise; could be interesting I suppose. I do hope it hasn't lost the plot completely!

    No iSpindel data showing up after battery recharge

    Hi, I started a brew recently, charged up the iSpindel and dropped it in, everything chugged away for about 6 days then the battery ran out. I made a mental note to fish the iSpindel out and recharge it at the weekend, then went and got ill for a while. Yesterday I : retrieved the iSPindel...

    How long can I leave the beer in the FV

    Started 14 Jan, OG 1050 InkBird set to 22 degC Stabilised by 22 Jan at 1006, add dry hops Bottle 28 Jan, add 90g priming sugar as a syrup with syringe - so probably a bit eager with the sampling. Bottles still sitting in a warmish utility room.
