£17.99 @ Wilko (Wilkinson)
Here's one for all you Home brewers out there! These things are very hard to find on the cheap so snap them up while you can. Can't find any Wilkinson vouchers applicable though :(

Oooh, hot!

Damn you for tempting me, I have no room for brewing kits :P

my friend had one of these. It was a good laugh all those years of use.

Whatever dark beer he brewed tasted like crap, but we still drank it.

I remember him buying it for £14.99, so this is more than what he paid from the same supplier.

Used to do home brew 20+ years ago - it was awful.

Tried again recently - still awful!

i get good results on my home brew with these i normally brew the stout and leave it for a few months once its ready before i drink it.

one thing to remember though is to lub the rubber seal on the top cap, not the seal that seals when tighten up the tube type rubber seal on the top of the cap that lets pressure out when too blown up.

The first time i did a home brew i have one of these explode on me it blew the barrel big time lol!!!!

Every beer kit I tried was rubbish even the expensive ones, Woodefords/Edme etc. Then I started making beer with plain malt extract, dried hops and proper brewing sugar. Also dry hopping the barrel made big difference. The results were really good, much better than poor "real ale" in bad real ale pubs, though admittedly not up to the standards of really good real ale in good pubs.

Haven't done it for years though. It's a fairly messy, smelly job and timescales always mean you end up having to muck about stuff when you are tired or wanting to do something less boring instead. Much easier just to pop to the supermarket and buy some boring bland beer.
