Just watched your bread making video and was funny as I made my first loaf last night and it was a hit with the family and shall try another today.
Must say you're a dark horse with many talents though still see the Magpie with the Shiny shiny bits for brewing 😜😜

Hi all,
Well the brew looking at the after thought milarlky lol slowed down...I ramped you a few degrees and if I get my bit into gear I’ll take a SG reading to see how we’re at. If it’s stable for 3 reading (daily as you do!) I’ll look at cold crashing.....then bottling.
On a seperste subject that obv got it own thread (name n shame shops or best h’brew shop I’ve found) my go to was MM (unless they having got in stock)
But I won’t name (in this climate even for a bloke like me that’s haven’t got a decent brain that would be stupid know what I mean)
All I say I put an order 2nd of this month...days n days go by.
So ok the most be under manned blah blah blah.
Three emails nothing..ring everyday..nothing and the voice mate practilly said we won’t answer and won’t leave a message..
How whey!!! I get it..but what can you do (apart from wait 😤)
So alll I could do is grow PayPal even then nothing.
Low and behold 3 weeks and two days later a email saying my order is ready to delivered...hmmmm! Okkkk!
4 days later it arrived and they got a nerve on the invoice RECOMMEND A FRIEND!!! hahahaha!! A joke...
Needed help on this one, so found a brew shop up in Scotland that were totally customer friendly . 1.5 days after boosshhh it came..
Just goes to show small company that want to survive they’ll 101% effort in...
Has anyone got the same experience?? (We’ll know company’s Vs small) ????
Anyways canny novel today guys n girls obv I had a good kip and my meds are working lol.
Should be pic(s) of the sg reading so far.
Hope your all safe, and not stir crazy?
Should have the lager kit soon ;-)

Demand as grown so much in the last month or so plus all the measure the companies need to put in place to protect the staff. You don't know if staff have been taken ill or their families. Give them a bit of a break. No doubt before this all happened you had no problem with the company.

Mate we’ll aware of all this Rona millarky and we’ll are they saying the manning uses due to it..hence I stated that a company doesn’t matter how big or small they are my point was lack of coms purely that....zero contact but at least the emailed 3.2 weeks later and 4 days later the order arrived.
What if I was trying to cancel my order as I was.
Look at the new company 1.5 day from ordering to to my home.
I know (even if my brain doesn’t work well) that we’re always going to come up with similar problems in this climate we’re living in.
Think giving then 3.2 week break was fare 🤔😉
As far a using the company first time but the reviews (back then was really bad coms. Delivery times etc) ok in highsight the feedback giving from buyers might of help me (if it’s bad then reckon it’s going to twice as bad now)
Hey ho! Took the gamble eventually got the order.
Crazy old world we’re in.
Hope you and your are safe n sound mate.
My latest order from the new company was ordered a day m half ago...text and email delivering 14:00hrs
Can’t be bad all they up top Scotland lol
Demand is a tricky thing for for all of us...look at the NEWS HOBBY’s’ sprung up!!
lol I tried to buy simple flour for making bread, shelves empty lol
Cooking and baking let alone DIY gardening projects has increased.
Thx bud for your reply, nice to hear from u.
