Can you brew me some beer please?


#8262

Did you get a starter kit or buy things separate?

Seen some starter kits but they all seem to come with plastic bottles which I don’t really want.


#8263

I got a kit that contained one 25 litre tub, a big spoon, the airlock thing, some disinfectant, a hydrometer, a stick on thermometer thing for the tub, syphon tube-filter and tap, and a trial jar.

Think it was from bigger jugs (bean.jpeg)

Then bought another tub later on, most other things such as more disinfectant and brewing sugars, molasses etc I bought later from a localish shop to me

Recommend these guys if you want to start really small but decent quality - will end up with much nicer stuff than an extract kit. You just need a big pot (as big as possible) and ideally a big sieve or similar.

I make cider sometimes and use glass bottles with (what are those clippy caps called?) I bought in Wilko’s once it’s done.


#8266

Lambics under threat.


#8267

Won’t It just make them funkier?


#8268

I think they’re concerned that the exact make-up of microflora and wee beasties that work on the beer will be affected by the warm temps (why they don’t brew in the summer already), so the taste would be totally changed.

Got ya, could be interesting all the same just repackage it as something new :wink:


#8270

It’s that weekend some of you said would work for a meat…


#8271

Well played that Steve

#8275

actually never had a stout from CW come to think of it


#8276

Sod it. Ordered a box.


#8277

The big ones they’ve done have been really good


#8278


Think this is my first unbarred. Was labelled as an neipa in the shop and it isn’t really.
