A while ago when cleaning out the garage, I dug out some old homebrew kit from back in the day when Boots ruled the roost - enough to put anyone off!

Any how I have bought a couple of kits and am pleasntly surprised with the results.

Is any one else brewing? Any good kit recommendations?

My mum was a gifted home brewer so I thought I might have been given some of her brewing genes, no such luck, what I produced could have been used as weed killer, it was disgusting. I took the hint and never attempted it again.

I'm glad yours worked out I shall stick to being a consumer rather than a producer.

Another vote for the Wherry from me. I can also recommend what is known as a microbrewery such as this one: http://www.the-home-brew-shop.co.uk/aca ... tAodVTQASQ

Our house is quite cold through the winter so I use a heat belt as it maintains a nice steady temperature.
