    I bet it takes longer to find a set of graduated spoons that can do 1.9, 2.0, 2.3 and 3.3 levels of carbonation than it does to do a drawing of a duck with hammers for feet.

    I think bottle priming is fine as long as you don't really care much about brewing, you know, you just do it to have something to drink and you only like one thing, well wish it were a bit better but it's like a slight effort to make it better. It's perfect for that.

    Yeah, I guess I shouldn't be here, but checking out the cheapest beer offers in the neighbourhood. Because I don't really care about brewing anyway. Might as well dump the equipment, more room in the shed for El Cheapo Brau.

    Bottling bucket with batch prime. Does 2 things, make beer more clear, as you leave behind lots of trub and makes sugar to be better dissolved. Did both ways, prefer batch priming, yes takes more time and cleaning, but my beer looks and taste better.

    Yes! All your brewing stuff is dragging you down, and the price I buy it from you shall respect that I'm basically doing you a favour!

    Strange and rather aggressive judgement to make. You've never tasted my beer, so have no grounds for your assertion. I brew quicker than many, I'm sure, but that is probably due to my 30 odd years of experience. In that time I've learned to brew beers which at least match the very best beers I've ever tasted.
    Though I admit it could just be blind luck compensating for my lack of care.

    Maybe 30 years of practice just make you luckier? Could be, I guess?
    That's what golfers say anyway.
