Re: Free To A Good Home

I don't seem able to PM you Johnny. Drop me a PM if these are still available, as I'm in the area next week.

Re: Free To A Good Home

I'd be very grateful for these if they are still available? I often work in Birmingham so could pop in after work

Re: Videne antiseptic tincture

No, I don't think you can. You need the antiseptic solution.

Re: Base grains

I'm a fairly inexperienced all grain brewer - less than a year, but I used to use MO, Golden Promise and what not. Then I realised that I'm a bit pants at brewing and needed to get my technique sorted a bit before worrying about base malt; it's reasonably low down the list of influencing factors in ...

Re: Brown ale

I'm a middle aged geezer, and drank a lot of brown ale in the late 80's. I've tried a few commercial ones recently; Newkie Brown has been ruined by Heineken and is pants, but Sam Smith's Nut Brown is really good. The reincarnation of Double Maxim is ok. I've tried to brew it once since I went all gr...

Re: Dry yeast for Kolsch

The California common is my go to for my golden British Ales now. The US pale didn’t seem to clear, their Cali Common may be a good alternative. That's really interesting, as I've only done traditional Cali common & Kentucky common ales and pseudo lagers with their California Common yeast (all with...

Re: Dry yeast for Kolsch

+1 for CML Kolsch. I don't get on with their real ale and US pale yeasts*, so wasn't expecting much, but it's a cracker. Their Cali Common is great too. The Kolsch will ferment at 12° if double pitched, needs a diactyl rest, and a few weeks lagering / cold conditioning. * I point this out to illustr...

Re: 1940 Whitbread London Stout

I’d guess that your invert sugar isn’t as dark as the real thing. I know that the stuff I got does give plenty of colour. Do you have the real thing? I'd love to get my hands on the proper stuff but living in Switzerland, it's not all that practical. Homemade is the only way to go. I'm sure the dif...

Re: Your favourite Graham Wheeler recipe...

If you like milds, the Bateman's Dark is a cracker. I do like mild too. How well does it keep? Sent from my CLT-L09 using Tapatalk In my case, not for very long; every time I walked past the keg it kept randomly gushing out into a pint glass. When this happened, I would drink it, only to see if I c...

Re: Fullers 1845

Ok so I emailed Fuller's, and it should be available, as has been said, in most Waitrose and Sainsbury's. They didn't say, but I guess Tesco must have just stopped selling it for whatever reason. I'm of to Sainsbury's to get some!!
