    The party with no name.

    Hi! Get it right - Corbyn has given political support to the Palestian people's desire to get back their land, stolen by the state of Israel. We shouldn't accept any nation simply grabbing territory that is part of another nation - we went to war over the Falklands.

    The party with no name.

    Hi! I'm going to tread lightly here! @Chippy_Tea Do you not think that Jeremy Corbyn's "unpopularity" in the Labour Party, as you see it, is a reaction to his attempts to pull what had become Tory Lite under Blair back to its Democratic Socialist roots? While I am sympathetic to the devastation...

    Motor for grain mill?

    Anyone Fermenting in a Corny Keg?

    Hi! The advantage of fermenting under pressure is that the beer is carbonated when fermentation is finished. A closed transfer to your serving keg and your beer is fully carbonated and only needs to mature. I have read that shortening the long dip tube by about 3cm helps to prevent the transfer...

    Urn conversion

    Hi @bikesandbeer I had something similar. I left everything as it was and made a new hole for a ball valve with a Qmax cutter. I used mine as a HLT so I didn't need to worry about leaving the old tap on it.

    Batch priming, do i stir?

    Hi! I always use a sugar solution and I always put the cooled solution into the bottling bucket before racking the beer onto it. Giving it a gentle stir won't hurt. Be prepared to sacrifice a fair amount of beer to avoid transferring sediment into the bottling bucket.

    HLT build

    Hi @An Ankoù Harsh? A warning to the OP can hardly be deemed harsh. Heineken Brewery keep a record of kegs delivered to customers and empties returned, and discrepencies incur a charge - monthly invoices are sent out.
