It's how I started and I can tell you now I have no idea why anyone continued to do so, they were terrible. But this was 1974!!! Now, although I rarely drink them, I have a neighbour who has just started so I guess I will get to find out how much they have improved lately.
Interesting alternative to the Pegas bottle filler on there for 80 Euro. This one accepts glass bottles as standard with the provided fitting, unlike the Pegas which is PET only unless you make your own adapter washer. I also noticed they were selling kegs for home brew boilers at nearly twice the ...

Crisp do a high diastatic malt. You might consider using a proportion of this to replace your base malt to allow you to up the Brown Malt. Although it isn't quite the same, Mild Ale Malt is another way of getting some of that maillard flavour into it as well.

I have a three way JG fitting to clean ...

Also agree that (for some beers), kegs are better, but I like to share bottles with fellow brewers (when I'm able) and agree also that bottling carbonated beer from a keg is a PIA! An old problem this and Beer gun's have always been a PITA. There has been an answer to this for sometime now. Have yo...
I recently used leaf gelatine as I couldn't get hold of powdered gelatine its a bit more more expensive but I noticed it doesn't smell as awful and dissolves more easily, it was added to the keg and I'm waiting to see the results. If you got it from the Malt Miller I can vouch for how good it is. M...
I may have to do an extra gallon on next brew and put it in a demijohn with veg gel to find out. I don't know the answer to your question but what you propose would be interesting to learn about anyway. If you could take pictures and post the result I'm sure it would be very welcome information.
Thanks everyone, I will crack this, everything was sanitised as follows: the FV was filled with warm water and cleaned with OXI, the lid, airlock, bung, spoon and everything was put inside and left to soak. then tipped away, rinsed with the shower and then soaked with a little bleach for about 30mi...
