    Lager brewing

    Someone, I'm sorry I forget who, mentioned a chemical in washing up liquid called bitrex that kills head in glasses. The main reason pubs have glasswashers and dishwashers is so no "fat" Should end up in the glasswashers. A good pub won't wash anything in the glasswashers other than glassware...

    I use the mineral water for pale ale/lager kits and the container for wows. I don't bother with an air lock I just don't screw it too tight. I use the chippyt method of only making it up to 4l then top up after first few days. Not had a foam over yet touch wood!

    Aldi Punk IPA copy, anyone tried it ?

    I think the Yaldi IPA is made by brew dog. The Aldi sourced one was called "Anti Establishment IPA" or something and brew dog had them via Twitter.

    Turbo cider help

    Check the turbo cider recipe thread. Someone was gonna do an experiment a few months back because a few people had issues with low carbonation. I had a similar issue as mentioned above and I used 5g per litre. Next time I'm gonna add a few teaspoons of nutrient and possibly some wine yeast day...

    Turbo cider help

    Brewmaster Ben on YouTube did a trial on various yeasts: This is the results video. Other forumites swear by a cider yeast with sweetener from ebay. I don't know it exactly but it's on the turbo cider recipe thread.

    I have used the wilkos finings a few times and it usually only takes a couple of days. But does vary on pulp content. The wilkos sachet is for 23l but I've seen a few people use the full sachet for a demijohn before with no reported issues. Sweetness is a personal preference and can vary from...

    White wine instead of white grape

    Grape juice is in tinned peaches at Asda 56p a tin. Lidl do bigger tins that are better value but I don't know the price. Wilko sell concentrated grape juices for £5. Ritches produce a grape concentrate and supply many home brew stores at various prices. My point is you can make 6 (or more)...

    Bottle bombs?

    I bottled it at 1.002 and added 5g sugar per litre. Next time I'm gonna add some nutrient and small amount of wine yeast at priming as a trial. Probably bulk prime with a teaspoon of each in once cooled.

    Bottle bombs?

    I used a spare ale yeast, I think it was a wilko cerveza yeast and the turbo cider is excellent. My only gripe would be it's not overly fizzy. I bottled in 1lt Schweppes tonic bottles and they're firm but not hard. I'd say it's similar to mateus rose, sparkling wise that is.

    Shop bought juice wine

    Would it be that you're using too much juice? When I've used more than 3litres in a dj it's always been syrupy and too sweet. Perhaps try long with some soda water so it's not wasted! I wouldn't trust everything you watch on YouTube!

    Does anyone have experience with blackberries? I've seen a lot of them around my area that will be coming good in the next few weeks. I'm thinking of a red juice wine for Xmas and a blackberry and apple turbo cider. Mainly asking for quantities. I'm gonna sanitize and rince before freezing for...
