    Potassium metabisulphate

    Is Fermentation Stopper (like in Youngs or Wilko's) the same thing?

    Cold brew...

    Ive just tested it again and its gone back to 1020???? I had decanted it as suggested earlier to see if there was anything left at the bottom but nothing to see. God knows what's going on! I think I did put too much water in trying to get everything out of the can (obviously using cold water...

    Freemasonry

    The only difference between Freemasons and the Rotary Club is history. And before someone says "but it's seeeeecret!", the name of every member is published and freely available at the Freemason's Hall in London. They were putting it online but im not sure if it happened. Is there cronyism...

    Freemasonry

    I think the important thing to note there is that the Masonic charter was revoked. So obviously Masonry was at least trying to ensure no wrongdoing. Personally, having met loads of Masons (my Dad was a Grandmaster), the idea of those duffers being part of any grand conspiracy is laughable. Two...

    Yeast not working or just slow?

    And we've finally got bubbles coming from the airlock! Whoop whoop! I think most of it was that with 5 litres starting in a 25l bucket, it was slow to full up with gas. Now its filled up, its blooping away nicely

    Yeast not working or just slow?

    On a sidenote, who makes brewing buckets without a volume measurement on it?

    Shaving brushes

    Beware buying too cheaply. “The Sam Vimes "Boots" Theory of Economic Injustice runs thus: At the time of Men at Arms, Samuel Vimes earned thirty-eight dollars a month as a Captain of the Watch, plus allowances. A really good pair of leather boots, the sort that would last years and years, cost...

    Yeast not working or just slow?

    Im making some rhubarb wine using the recipe in the River Cottage Handbook. I pitched the yeast yesterday morning at about 8am and there seems to be no action at all today. By contrast, a wine i made from a kit was bubbling away within just a few hours and is glooping every few seconds. So...
