    I degas in the demijon, just fill up to the neck then shake half a dozen times over the next hour or two, top up with water then add your finings(clearer) I find the two part finings the best, never fail. Or as Chippy says if you've done a big batch in a fermenter then use a degassing wand.

    Following on I would seriously consider writing it off if it's an old model or low value as vauxhall will usually not guarantee a new ECU will fix the problem and once fitted is non-refundable, I speak from experience of my old Vectra b.

    Quite a few different models from various manufacturers where this same problem causes catastrophic failure of the ECU, why they put them in such places amazes me, not rocket science is it🙄

    Bulldog Sweet Cider Yeast

    i use the bulldog cider yeast (unsweetened version) and just add 1 sweetener tab per ltr, works well for me. I add to my teabag tannin mix.

    First Turbo Cider

    Sorry to hear your redundancy news firstly, but on a positive note you've entered into TC brewing. The best bit of brewing TC for me is trying out different juices to make flavoured cider, pineapple being my favourite i think, or the polish juice lowizs blackcurrant. Generally i use 4x apple...

    Gozdawa legacy pils kit.

    Hi all, anyone done this kit before? Just recieved from ebay and was looking for any recomendations for brewing. I've got quite a few bitters/ipa bottles in my garage which i never fancy, especially in warm weather so i thought i might try a lager style for a change. I want to leave the kit as...

    TC Strawberry and Lime

    Glad you like your brew, I'm not into commercially brewed fruit ciders as I find them a bit sickly after the first pint whereas I can drink these lowitz recipes one after the other if I'm in the mood. I reckon two bottles to a 20ltr batch turns out perfect as you say, a nice taste but not...
