As I intend to brew again on a campsite, I have started making a new smaller mash tun :) see the equipment thread.

That's an amazing tale. Well done. I take my hat off to you.
The closest I've ever got to this is when I made a batch of beer at home and pitched the yeast on camp. Not very close really!
I'm cheap. Just give me beer.

8) :lol: I would say you also have an amazing tale, not too sure I would be brave enough to try and ferment a beer whilst on a campsite without some sort of temperature control. The only way I would attempted to ferment the beer would have been using a kveik style yeast or wait until the colder weather and brew a larger (although that might be a very long camp visit :lol:

I often look back in wonder of my early brewing days (1990's) admittedly lots of white sugar was involved but the general guidance at the time was to either wrap the FV in boiler jacket or place in the airing cupboard crossing all fingers and toes that something vaguely drinkable came out the other side.

Come think about it didn't James May & Oz C brew in caravan on Drink to Britain
