    Potassium sorbate declared in mine. Just looked online at sainsbury's and waitrose, both declare potassium sorbate.

    WEIRDEST WINE EVER MADE?

    Agree, prune wine didn't taste good for me either. It fermented fine, some told me it wouldn't because of the preservatives in the prunes.

    WEIRDEST WINE EVER MADE?

    Runner bean - tasted like boiled runner bean water but alcoholic. Wasn't a fan.

    Welcome. You certainly have a good collection of trees that will take you a long way. If you want cherries you'll have to net them - used Wondermesh .co.uk is great for covering a whole tree. Previously used for covering fields of broccoli. Ripe eating apples can be a pain to crush - in that...

    Should you trust your digital scales?

    And repeated accurate, without splashback. In my student days we were taught to put solution into a burette and read from that point rather than fill to 100ml or what ever. Secondly scales need to be level. The load cells are either one centrally or in an X formation and perform a calculation...

    First sample of Muntons Gold Old English bitter. Been in the bottle for 2 weeks. Good flavour and bitterness. Head retention poor.

    All this talk of stout has got me on this Imperial I made. Nice but treacley. I like treacle, but this is a bit too intense. Is that the dark malt extract?

    Beer Strength

    I think retort pouches are great. Because they are thinner, the time:temperature required to thermally process is significantly less. Downside not recyclable. The one I dislike is mangrove jacks double pouch because you have to open the whole pack to get at the yeast before you warm the malt up.

    Varifocals

    As a troubled varifocal wearer, i can relate to this thread. I feel there are a few factors at play. The quality of the lens, the adjustability of the frames and most importantly the skill of the fitter. It does take time to get used to them. Like camera lenses there are different qualities of...

    Had a couple of Breferm Gallia, now on a LoveBrewing Goose. Right up my street. Hops come through, lovely maltiness. Can see this kit being brewed again.

    What are you drinking tonight 2021?

    Cider made from 🍎 (unknown cider variety) crushed and pressed and fermented with wlp775. Its strange because you would say its texture it thin, has a tannic edge without being toe curling or pucker, yet a sweet appley finish, which I put down to the yeast. Cold out the fridge which gives the...

    Favourite can kits?

    Just bottled their Goose that I started on the 28th July. Certainly citrusy. The instructions are as you say @mickluplo yet the hops were pellets. Didn't understand the reasoning for rehydration but did. Couldn't discard as once rehydrated it was set green jelly. All went in. Going into the...

    Wasps

    May I suggest ZERO IN ULTRA POWER WASP NEST FOAM 600ML £10 at screwfix. Can stand 4m away and cover the nest in insecticidal foam. Works great on wasp nests in the loft, just lift the hatch spray and back out the way.
