Wainie,
1/2 a Campden tablet is OK for 20lts, why do you waste so many? [-X

Sent without tapertork.
1/4 of a Campden tablet is all that is needed for 20 liters.
1/8 of a Campden tablet is all that is needed for 10 litres.

May have gone slightly off topic here, does the below look ok?

Just need to know fermentation temps as bulldog giving an 18-24 range which maybe causing my problems.

Looking at two weeks to ferment (is 14 too high or should I go for 12)?

Crash cool to 4 degrees for one week then transfer to the corny keg.

Set pressure to 8psi for a further two weeks to force carbonate at 5 degrees with CO2

Going to use bottled water as well

Any suggestions on yeast or just go with what comes with the kit?

Thanks
AB

Wainie,
How do you work that out then?
I`ve got an `O Level Maths` certificate, so I might be right.
Why have you put two `fs` in if?
Haven`t you got an `O level English` certificate? #-o #-o
