    Labelling your bottles (with your own labels)

    Hey guys! I have already learned so much from this forum, and I wanted to do a bit to give back wherever possible! I am a big fan of being creative, and long before I got interested in brewing beer, I have mucked about in different visual mediums, most relevant to this exercise is a few years...

    Is hop availability seasonal?

    Hey guys! I have recently fallen in love with really hoppy IPAs, and have just had availability in two FVs for something new. I would like to look at Extract brewing, but if I were, I'd be aiming for a really hoppy IPA. I have found a few recipes for similar tastes, and I am finding that a lot...

    A slight panic... VWP usage

    Hi there! I put together my first brew from a kit last night, but in doing some reading on here today, I think I have really screwed up. In watching a friend of mine do an all-grain brew last week, he sanitized everythign within an inch of its life, though I didn't think about what he was...

    New guy from Edinburgh

    Hey guys! I have just started brewing, and I am looking forward to the results. The process was fun, even from a kit! I am based in Edinburgh, and my favourite beer would be Brewdog's Punk IPA, though I have just recently come back from a visit to Canada that has left me in awe of a...
