    Hello from the Wirral!

    Hi, my name is Jon and I joined last month. I've been busy brewing IPAs and Stouts and having a great time! If there are any other homebrewers on merseyside that fancy meeting up to swap brews and tips, I'd be up for it. I haven't been able to find a nearby homebrew club. Cheers! Pugh

    Using whisky bottles

    One of my neighbours is a very definite whisky man, and he tends to buy it in half bottles. I've asked him if I can have his empty's, with a view to rinsing them out and then filling them up with a brew. Are there any possible problems with using an old whisky bottle, apart from the savings? So...

    Hello from wet and windy Shetland

    Hello everybody, Up here in Shetland prices are high and what's on offer is limited. That's probably the main reason that I've started brewing my own.
