    Wilko Geordie lager kit

    FG ended up at 1009 bringing it in at around 6%. At the moment it’s in secondary in my fridge at 2° I’ll be bottling it this week and leaving it for a month to condition, I’ve had a taste and it tastes pretty good lots of flavour even without carbonation.

    Cheap kits sub 14£, never again !!!

    Love that idea of making another brew with a can and your left over wort, quick question how long do you boil up the second brew and how much more hops do you add. I’m hoping to move to all grain very shortly as soon as room/time/equipment is all in place and this has tweaked my interest even more.
