    Priming syrup

    For the 40pint kit I used 150gr of sugar, divided by 40 = 3.75gr, I see now why its mils in a syringe but its calculated in grams

    Priming syrup

    Hello from Elgin Moray

    Alistair, the chemist who owns the shop brews himself, but he`s probably letting the stock run down now he`s planning on giving it the chop, I think he has a few kits reduced too.
