    My kids swear blind that there was an ad on radio x last night for Lidl doing £20 craft beer kits ahead of fathers day. I can find no mention of this online - may be worth keeping an eye out though.

    Nothing on the father's Day section on the app. Might be in store only?

    I can't find any reference to a Brewing Kit but I am half hoping that my kids will treat me to Lidl's "Grillchef Mini Kamado Barbecue" ...

    ... but at £79.99 I just can't see it happening!

    Oh god - I've already got anxiety that somebody is going to give me one as a present and I'll have to fake a phwoarrgasm.

    I actually had that this year. I had carbonation drops and citric acid in my stocking. CARBONATION DROPS!!! My eye is twitching. I took them back and got campden tablets and two tubs of yeast nutrient.

    It was the missus who spotted it. I made it very clear that if I got one for fathers day, she'd have to drink it.
    Sounds brutal but it needed to be done.

    I know ...

    ... but I already have a ProQ Smoker and a Dancook BBQ so when I flew it past SWMBO I would apparently have to use it with broken legs!

    I mis-read that as Kommando Barbecue. I was wondering what that might be!

    I like the look of it. It's like a kit without an FV. I'd deffo give it a go (if Muntons wanted to send me one. Muntons?). Not sure about drinking it straight from the bag though (well, actually, who hasn't drank their gravity sample and thought, MMmm, this tastes nice!). Stick a bottling wand on the tap, bottle it, and it would probably be fine after some conditioning
