    Eureka !

    OK, so it's not the breakthrough of the century... but I used to store my TC's on a shelf and try and remember what was where.... not the most scientific method, so quite often I wouldn't know what I was about to drink until I tasted it [emoji23] So I splashed out for a £1.49 packet of...

    Fairly confident that this topic has been done to death... but to save me looking (😂) I forgot to put some in my last wow, that I've just cleared and am ready to bottle. I reckon I'll just bottle it and see if I notice any difference. But... Do most people add glycerin to their wows...
