    Starting again

    I only started brewing this year and have been doing the usual Wilko/Range kits. These have turned out ok, each one getting better as I have gained experience in the process. I had been reading the thread about the AG Smash and thought it looked a simple way to try out AG. You don't need to...

    1st go

    Update on the WOW....round 2 Took a reading on Sunday and its at .990 and gave it a cheeky taste. Its about 500% better than the 1st go but really dry. That's what you get when you send an idiot to go and get the RGJ! At least the drains are still lovely and clear from the 1st lot I think a...

    1ft heater for inkbird

    I got one of these from CEF as they were just up the road. I have it in the bottom of the Larder fridge in the Bat Cave and I built a shelf with legs...don't forget to put holes on the shelf. Seems to work perfect for 23ltrs (also have have space for 1 DJ and 40 bottles)...

    Bat Cave brewing

    Next kit is on the go, again its a Wilko kit.. The Thirsty Devil Red Ale. Used 500g Med spray, 1kg brewing sugar, ditched the kit yeast & used a Wilko Gervin pack and used the 17p spring water from Asda but only to 20ltrs. SG 1.050 After reading a lot and with the sages advice here, i'm...

    1st go

    Back from Asda with the RGJ as per the one in the pic and apple juice both from the refrigerated aisle (and all 100%...checked it twice!) Just started this off as per the recipe (again checked everything twice), so lets see how this one goes. The last lot at least cleaned the drains up lovely...

    Bat Cave brewing

    The Range's MYO Stout is done and nice and clear (as well as you can see through very dark brew). Managed 41 which are now in the brew fridge @ 20c for 2 weeks. Had a cheeky taste and it's not a bad taste. Lets hope the next 4 weeks go quick for me to check the output

    1st go

    Yes it was DJ2 the Apple juice was from Aldi but the RGJ was the one I picked up from Sainsburys. Think I'll put this down to experience and go to Asda and get the refrigerated RGJ and then double check everything as i do it.

    1st go

    The 2nd WOW has finished fermenting and again was at .990. To be honest its probably only good for cooking or clearing drains. Its very thin, has no real flavour to it and is very acidy. I did follow the recipe and using the brew fridge have good temp control. Plus i'm super pedantic on...
