    Gateway drug

    My next door neighbours had a party tonight, I said I’d bring a keg around though, as they mostly drink Stella, wasn’t sure how my west coast IPA would go down. Everyone was complementary of the beer but I took that as just general politeness but they kept coming back for refills, for me that’s...

    October Competition- Dark Beers

    Thanks for the great positive feedback @Hopsteep! I really wasn’t expecting to do so well, I really liked the beer and it was great to get a proper opinion of it to make sure it wasn’t judging it with my beer goggles on! Good luck!

    Brewtools counterflow chiller

    Does seem to be a bit more expensive than comparable versions. I used the chiller that came with my grainfather for the first time over the weekend, it was massively faster than my old immersion chiller.

    Kegland in line regulators Help needed

    You might find it better to use 3/8-3/16 reducers and have the majority of your gas line as 3/16”. A lot easier to manipulate.

    Raid on illegal Bolton distillery

    I used to go to Detroit quite regularly in the early '90s as a sound engineer with various bands, used to play a lot at St Andrew's Hall. I think the last time I was there we did a gig in a bowling alley, was really good. Is it still the same with all the empty housing? You could drive for...

    October Competition- Dark Beers

    Hi @phildo79, I have the ingredients for the KBS clone siting in my shopping basket at Malt Miller and had a couple of questions for you if you don't mind... 1. Water profile, did you just go for a 'stout' the profile? The Brewfather one seems little light on sulphates and chloride: I've...

    Raid on illegal Bolton distillery

    Other than the voting restrictions the Republicans seem to want to implement in your country to suppress the turn out of those likely to vote against themall of the things you mention were introduced because people aren't reasonable and honest!

    Raid on illegal Bolton distillery

    Surely if you are reasonable and honest then you are not going to be restricted by laws unless you are living in an overly authoritarian state... Unfortunately lots of people are not reasonable or honest and even more are greedy and exploitative which is why we need laws and regulations to...

    October Competition- Dark Beers

    That sounds delicious, I'd imagine all the different malts plus adjuncts will give a massive amount of complexity.

    Wow, thanks @Hopsteep and congratulations to @phildo79 and the other competitors, that was my first competition (and first porter!!). I think it was probably more luck than judgement on my behalf...

    Thank you

    You might want to rethink your survey… 4. Do you have favourite brand of lager or you like to try new ones? This is two questions with probably opposite answers so having yes and no as the options doesn’t really work! The ‘favourite lager’ question has a list of some brands, if your favourite...

    Ban on new petrol and diesel cars in UK from 2030 under PM's green plan

    I tried cycling for my commute, north London to Victoria, but, at around 13 mile, it was a tad too far. Instead I rented space in a secure cycle park at Finsbury Park so I cycled 6 miles to there and got the Tube the rest of the way. We had showers at work so no problem being sweaty all day...
