    Go to grains and hops

    Thanks all, looks like we are all on the same wavelength, 75% of what you have advised is what I have in my basket. I am going down the Golden Promise base malt route for a change and in the 25kg sack.

    Go to grains and hops

    What are your go to grains and hops that you always have in your inventory. I am putting a bulk order in, and I am looking for suggestions, Pale malt I am good with, it’s the “others” you have? Cascade/Citra/Magnum and Target is what I already have.

    Failed bottle priming

    I found it has taken around 6 weeks for my Barley Wine to carb up. I was worried at one point, so I inverted them all a couple of times and they are now going to be ideal for Christmas.

    Temp control in a shed...in winter

    As @Clint says a brew fridge is the easiest, I use the inkbird with heat mat with no issues.

    Which Hydrometer/Refractometer?

    I have a refractometer for sale, that I got from Brew2Bottle in the summer. I just can’t get on with it.

    Greg Hughes recipes

    Just tried my Yorkshire Bitter after a week in the bottle. I must say it’s rather nice, it came out a little stronger than expected, but I will be brewing it again. Todays brew was the Summer Ale, as I am after a lighter one for Christmas to go with the Barley Wine chaser. ;)

    Lakeland breweries

    I’d be going to the Black Bill in Coniston, they have their own brewery out the back. Their beers are a bit more traditional, but very nice.

    Broadband FTTC, FTTP, Gfast etc.

    I have just migrated to Virgin, I was on FTTC, but on a longish copper line so was getting 55/14. In all honesty the speed I have now, is more than I needed, however the deal was too good to refuse. Full TV package, with the top BB package in the area, full phone and unlimited data mobile sim.

    Grainfather Reviews

    I have one abs find it really good, it keeps things simple and I now create less mess. I like the delayed start for the brew, so I can set it all up the night before, and it will be heating the water as I get up. The only real grievance I have with it is those silicone seals. I get them in...

    Apple iPhone users warned about 'orange dot' on screen - Here's what it means

    My thoughts are that apple are now highlighting this is happening, whereas in the past it was hidden. A thumbs up for me for privacy, and indicating there may be a sneaky app.
