Diolch WalesAles. This actually sounds very nice! Apologies for lack of reply until now but I've been out of the country for a month (no, not England) and have been largely restricted to French lager. As soon as I arrived at Newport station on the way home I found my favourite pub in the city and enjoyed a lovely pint of Sam Smith's Old Brewery Bitter.

I might be wrong but i think Wilko would be your best bet.

Edit: I've just noticed you're a South African and probably don't have Wilko stores. If you have any British relatives, ask if they'll send you some for Xmas.

8,316 miles to be exact :shock: and I thought I lived far away from the UK.
Sommeliers recommend that you swirl a glass of wine and inhale its bouquet before throwing it in the face of your enemy.

Diolch/Thanks WalesAles - next time I'm going towards Swansea I'll call in and claim my prize! I'm sure the 50/50 spraymalt/brewing sugar mix will be fine.
