    Heat pump grants worth £5,000

    They really don't worry about detail like that. Here's wind turbine blades being put into landfill once their life is over. The blades are non-recyclable, made with petrol chemically-produced resin.

    Heat pump grants worth £5,000

    The more I read about heat pumps the more I'm convinced that there's going to be a massive U-turn somewhere along the line. Massively inefficient in houses that are not so well insulated (i.e. older houses) and struggle in colder climes (like Scotland, for example). I know they're used in...

    The 'Recommend me a TV series' thread

    That's Squid Game finished. Absolutely bonkers mad, but I really enjoyed it. The last episode was maybe a slight disappointment, but the whole thing was so creative and different, that I really enjoyed watching it. Enjoy it for what it is and don't take it too seriously would be my view.

    20 beers for £24 delivered.

    I ordered from Flavourly fairly recently, on the basis that the beers were £1 a can (330ml) with free postage. I think it was 40 beers. To be honest, I probably wouldn't bother again. All of the beers have been fairly average, with no stand outs at all. Just very bland.

    Dark Rock Brewing Session Series - India Pale Lager Review

    Wow! That's way more than you get with most kits!

    Dark Rock Brewing Session Series - India Pale Lager Review

    I'm going to do a Dark Rock kit next following the excellent Partridge Brothers reviews on YouTube. It's a toss up between the West Coast Pale Ale, Citra IPA and Aussie Gold. All sound great.

    The 'Recommend me a TV series' thread

    Not a series, but watched 'Icarus' on Netflix, a documentary about a good amateur cyclist in the States who is also a film maker. He decides to start doping in order to see what difference, if any, it makes to his performance with a view to making a documentary on it. Without spoiling it for...

    The Love Brewing Trick or Treat Giveaway!

    Got to say, these all sound great, but it would be the Lucky Freedom Grapefruit APA for me, please.

    Stout kit

    Bottling day for me - my St Peter's Cream Stout for winter/Christmas. I've done this kit before and am experimenting with fresh coffee (which I've used before with good success) and cocoa nibs (which I haven't used before). Will post a review in due course.

    Covid the jab and the final stage.

    Just back in from seeing Frank Turner at the Roundhouse in Camden. It was worse than de Montford Hall in Leicester on Thursday evening. Didn’t ask for a covid pass or proof of a negative test, despite the website saying it’s a condition of entry. Hall was packed and not a mask in sight. Most...

    New Mango Pale Ale from Mangrove Jacks

    I very much doubt it, but why would you bother even trying it?

    Covid the jab and the final stage.

    It doesn’t really bother me, but if you’re going to have a system in place to protect people, you’d think it might actually be run properly. This was not a pub - it was an established concert venue and they honestly couldn’t give a toss whether you were negative/positive or had a valid covid...

    Mangrove Jacks Australian Pale Ale

    Stop it! Stop posting really positive reviews which immediately make me want to go out and buy yet another kit for which I don’t have the capacity or bottles!

    Covid the jab and the final stage.

    Went to my first gig for two years last night. Conditions for entry were either a covid pass or a negative lateral flow test. I'm double jabbed so had a covid pass on my phone. Bloke on the door looked at it for a split second and said "That's fine mate". Didn't scan the QR code or even check...

    New Mango Pale Ale from Mangrove Jacks

    I agree - with all the MJ kits I've added either MJ's liquid malt extract (1.2 kg), or light spraymalt. Either works fine and both give great results.

    New Mango Pale Ale from Mangrove Jacks

    I've been looking out for your review as I was intrigued to know what this one would be like. MJ Pink Grapefruit IPA and the Juicy Session are probably the two best kits I've done, so to hear this one is at least as good, or even better, is fantastic news. Definitely on my 'to do' list! Thanks...

    GEB Galaxy Pale Ale Beer Kit

    Great review! I did one of the GEB kits recently (Citra IPA) and was impressed. Really good to hear that this one hits the mark as well. Another to add to the ever-increasing 'to do' list!

    The 'Recommend me a TV series' thread

    Just finished 'Unorthodox' on Netflix. The story of a girl who runs from an hasidic jewish community in Williamsburg, NY. Only four parts so an easy watch, but I really enjoyed it. Shira Haas, who plays the girl, is absolutely superb!
