    Did some shopping in ASDA the other Friday, and whilst I was there I spotted Lowictz Raspberry syrup. It was in the international area. It's the first time I've seen it there. Just a friendly FYI athumb..

    Would be better to look in "Polish" shops or corner shops stocking Polish and international foods. Usually more choice there.
    Some supermarkets do stock these but from my experience it's pure luck what you'll find as they put on shelves what they get it might be different flavour with every delivery or just one flavour all the time.
    That's my experience at least in various Morrisons, Tescos and Asdas

    At the beginning to up the OG to something suitably insane
    And then use 5ml in each bottle for priming in place of sugar.

    I did a raspberry TC and added 3/4 bottle to 4l apple juice and brewed it out in a DJ with champagne yeast. Added the remaining syrup as priming sugar. Very very tasty, but was like 9% and went down like a fizzy fruit shoot
    ;)

    Hi!
    Did it turn out very dry?
    I have seen posts recommending using a low-attenuating yeast, like Danstar Windsor.

    You can always add a little more syrup when you serve it to sweeten if you don't like it really dry.
