Re: harrybrew69

this is all a bit OTT, been drinking since 11 (its 6 p.m.) so just ignore it (at the stage where I - well, you get the idea, if there was a full moon, I'd howl at it).

Re: harrybrew69

and yes, I bought ALL the £3 recipes as downloads, just as a lock down support, and glad I did it.

Re: harrybrew69

Selling homebrew recipes for £3 a pop then putting this in the description "Please note, the £3 charge for the Beersmith file and the PDF is just a suggestion. If you want to change the price you pay to £0.00 then please use the coupon code TIGHTARSE at checkout." Some balls on the lad :lol: :lol: ...

Pedigree amber ale

Hi all, Waiting for my second jab (4.29 weeks, add 14 days for it to kick in) and I've decided to stay semi-pissed until then: been hiding away since 03/20 (vulnerable category, retired) but been recently sticking my snout out and sniffing the air. A local Asian shop sells pedigree amber ale (4.5%) ...

Re: Storing empty bottles

Glass bottle or plastic, I rinse out after pouring (position under tap, run until comes out clear, then half fill, swill around and pour, repeat) then fill to top and add a fragment of Milton tablet (size depends on size of bottle - 400 ml, 500 ml, 1 litre etc), cap and its good to go. You can leave...

probably preaching to the converted, given the forum but the above (https://harrisonsbrewery.com/shop/) sells seriously good beer at a very competitive price. As a starter I'd recommend "vacant gesture" or "proof of concept". But they are all excellent. He has a YT channel which is fascinating - he ...

Re: awaiting my brewziilla 3.1

Please do; I've bought more AG "kits" from malt miller and I'm going to do their Berliner Weisse brew next. This is one of a series of all grain "kits" they sell with a link to a podcast that discusses it. The guy that come up with the BW hadn't actually brewed it yet (its his "take" on a BW) so thi...

Re: This is a tremendous kit

Have you made the Coopers Irish Stout yet (not the Coopers original stout) and how did it turn out? I'm afraid that my drinking habits during the original lock down didn't discriminate between Irish and original (after 3 months, I was drinking straight from the FV after 3 days - you get my point). ...

Re: awaiting my brewziilla 3.1

Hi all I'm in a similar position. I've ordered one from Brewkegtap. I've only done a few all grain brews of 1 gallon after getting the book "kitchen Brewing" from my library just before lockdown. https://www.amazon.com/Kitchen-Brewing-Easier-Quicker-Home/dp/178488183X Although Ive done a good few e...

Re: awaiting my brewziilla 3.1

Hey Pal Really interested to hear you views once you get it setup and complete a brew. I am waiting to press the button on for the same product from Angelbrew. Haven't pressed the button yet as they are not expecting stock until end of Aug. Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk Hi, sorry for the lon...

Re: awaiting my brewziilla 3.1

The "pic is its arrival on the dock - mine is 3rd row down, 4 along" comment was a joke in case anyone thought it was serious etc. But my attempt to upload the pic seems to have failed (or been cancelled) so as a joke, its a busterino on multiple levels. My 2 metre interaction with the delivery driv...

awaiting my brewziilla 3.1

Hi all, After 10 years (since I retired) of kit brewing and intermittent 3 pot AG brewing, I've bit the bullet and bought a brewzilla 3.1 from Angel Homebrew (pic is its arrival on the dock - mine is 3rd row down, 4 along - this an actual pic of the delivery from aussi land). When I went into lock d...
