    My first post about Turbo beer (in another thread) used just Muntons light hopped and took 8 minutes to make (including messing about taking pictures), if it took you 5 you'd be messing about. It tasted OK but strangely like a jam sandwich.

    I've got one cold crashing at the moment which is my first foray into dry hopping :-). A pure experiment which might end up tasting OK but I need to change the process for the next one. When I get it right I'll post the technique (although having just finished reading 'for the love of hops' I don't think it is possible to get dry hopping wrong :razz:).

    Well, it literally took about two minutes to 'make'.
    60 seconds of that was shaking the bejesus out of the mix/bottle.
    I 'bottled' it two days ago.
    By bottled, I mean racked into another empty same sized water bottle, lobbed in some carb drops and put the lid back on.
    My lad has it now, I told him to put it in a cupboard for a month then fridge it for a couple of days.
    To be honest I couldn't be doing with parping about and bottling it properly, my lad and his mates will neck it in about an hour.

    ps. I also poured in approx 100G of brewing sugar when I poured in the hopped spray malt, just to up the ABV a wee bit. I think that took another 7 seconds :-D

    Ha!
    I should have said that if I'd told my lad it was OK to drink after 9 days, he'd have it quaffed after 3! That was my logic regarding telling him a month.
