Re: CO2 in Surrey/Hants

I use Adams Gas but they are the same and require a deposit for the bottle. Refills are reasonable though. My local stockist is Autoparts in Staines.

Try Googling Adams Gas and enter your postcode.

Re: Conditioning temp

A handy tip is to use 1 plastic (PET) bottle along with your glass ones. When the beer is fully carbonated it feels firm to the touch when squeezed.

If you've got an iPhone or iPad the BrewPal app is really good and not overly complicated.

Re: Flip-top bottles

Great find. I like the smaller bottles. I can have a bottle with my dinner every night without worrying about drinking too much (especially good for the stronger brews too) [emoji482]

Re: beer labels

I've used a pritt stick to apply home printed labels. It sticks well and they come off easily with a rinse in warm water.
