Re: Chinese 8mm threads (temperature probe)

When the Chinese say stainless they mean shiny, at least, for a while...

Re: Invert Sugar

Tate and Lyle sugars are from cane. Silver Spoon products are from UK sugar beet.

How many kilos at a time do you put into the communal sewerage system?
6kg or so. Takes a bit of washing away but it goes eventually
My waste pipe couldn't cope with that and with me it would only go into my cesspool. How much water does it take to wash away 6 kilos of grain 😱

Minch do a so called ‘craft malt’ reserved for small batch breweries. You can buy if for £21/sack.
Yep, and it's good stuff. I have 25kg sitting in the brew shed. It is good value.

Re: Time expired yeast

I used 2 packs of wilko yeast 2 days ago that I've had kicking around for years in the brew fridge. BB December 2018. It was bubbling nicely next morning 👍

Re: Keeping Beer

Thanks for the ideas, lots to consider there. I do like a 1845, Broadside as well, particularly the bottled version. Porters and Stouts as well. Mind you the IPA appeals... Trouble is Ilike them all.

Never tried Marzen

Keeping Beer

I brew in a shed/outside, I'm way to messy to brew in the kitchen. So I tend not to brew in December, January and February. So with a bit more brewing time in my hands I'm looking to brew a few beers that will keep and improve until the winter gloom descends. Any style, light or dark, about 5% or so...
