    Any recommendations for a good bitter kit?

    Well I went for a Festival Pilgrims Hope kit and it's on the go now.

    Youngs American IPA

    Yeah chuck the rest in it'll be fine. It's only for carbonation and should take a couple of weeks to carb up.

    Youngs American IPA

    You add the whole bag of priming sugar that was included in the kit.

    Any recommendations for a good bitter kit?

    Not been brewing long but have done kits of Youngs Scottish Heavy, Woodfordes Headcracker, Youngs Saison, Youngs American IPA and recently Mangrove Jacks Grapefruit IPA. I've been impressed with all of them, maybe the Saison was the stand out one for me. Want to try a bitter next. Any good ones...

    Plastic bottles

    I've been using plastic pet bottles that I've used for about 4 brews now. However after washing them they seem to have developed a ring of haze around the shoulder inside the bottle. Is this something to be worried about or are they ok to carry on using?

    The Homebrew Twang experiment.

    I tried an experiment with my last batch. I squeezed some of the bottles until the beer reached the brim before capping and marked them as such to see if oxidization made a difference. Just opened one and it gushed everywhere. All the others that weren't squeezed haven't gushed so far. All were...

    Fools and Horses was always a Christmas favourite laugh out loud round here. Another staple was the afternoon Connery/Moore James Bond Film.

    Mangrove's jack grapefruit pink ipa limited edition

    Sampling my second beer out of this kit just now (it's Friday after 4pm and nearly Xmas so what the hell). Much clearer and nicer now and it's very close to Elvis Juice. I'd say it's the best kit I've made and beats the Youngs IPA kit which was a cracker too. Highly recommended.
