    Fruit Vodka

    Now that the sun is out and soft fruits are coming into season, its a good time to start thinking about a sweet fruity tipple that will be ready in time for Christmas. Don't worry this does not invlove distillation, merely infusing shop bought vodka (or other spirit) with fruits and sugar. I...

    B&M Starter Kit.

    I was in my local B&M yesterday and noticed they had the starter kits (FV, syphon etc.) and the swing top bottles both at £5.99. Relieved them of a box of bottles, 50p per bottle can't be too bad.

    What has been your Festive Showstopper?

    I have sampled and shared a selection of my home brewed bitters and AIPA’s, kit wine, country wines and supermarket juice wines over the festive period, but the one that got the most plaudits, was by far the simplest, a loganberry vodka infusion. Fill a jar with fresh berries (blackberries...

    Pseudo Lager

    This weekend's weather has prompted me to attempt making a batch of lager for the summer. the problem is that my brewfridge would not be capable of maintaining 3-4°C at this time of year and my domestic fridge is far too small to fit 40 bottles in (and still allow room for some food). Greg...

    Loganberry Wine

    Back in June I made my first wine, from some of last season's loganberries out of the freezer. I then made two more batches, first from the fresh loganberries off my bushes using a different recipe, then a forest fruits WOW, including some of my raspberries and redcurrants too. These were...

    Vacuvin used for Syphon Suction

    I have often wondered on bottling days, is there a simple alternative to sticking the tubing in your mouth and sucking, after having religiously sterilised everything else. I started with the idea of creating a peristaltic (pipe squeezing) pump and pulling the tube through two close fitting...

    Small Batch Experiments

    I'm still quite new to home brewing, but have had several decent results from kits, some of which I have pimped. I am keen to try some of the more advanced techniques, but don't have the equipment available at present to take this too far. I do however have a couple of demijohns, bought with...

    Seemingly like many other members, I have returned to home brewing recently after a brief dalliance as a student nearly 30 years ago. I have noticed that the quality of home brew kits have improved as much as the quality of commercial beer has over the same period. I am currently on my fifth...
