Currently enjoying one of those myself. My notes tell me I made the wort on 21 March with table sugar made up to +/- 19 litres, OG 1.040. On 10 April the FG was 1.004 so approx.4.6ABV so I batch primed and got 35 bottles. Moved to colder area on 24 April and seven weeks later the result is BLM!
Beer is my drug of choice.
I don't need anger management classes, I need people to stop pissing me off.

aamcle,
Yes, there is a Kit Category.
I was thinking of slipping some of my Kits into the AG Brews just for a laugh! :D
I will next year because some of the stuff was well below my standard and I thought `My Kits are better than this`. My Daughter said the same.
Cheeky I know, but what the hell. It is up to the Judges in the end! :D
Anyway, Jim wanted recipes posted........

Wilko IPA to 20Lts.
1 Can Kit
1Kg Med Spraymalt
SG @ 22deg 1040

I didn't enhance mine as this was the first time I had made this kit. The only difference to the instructions was that I brewed short.
I'll definitely be making this again.

Thanks for that WA. :)

That was more than just a kit wasn't it! Just goes to show what can be done with basic equipment and a little bit of imagination. =D>

Well done again WA =D>
I recently brewed a wilko IPA and tweaked by adding xtra EKG hops,cardamom and corriander seeds.
I was sorta inspired after watching some dogfish head stuff on you tube.
It turned out great after only 2 weeks in the bottles so am gonna do another batch for the summer 8)
