Hot from me. I have a couple of kits to knock up, haven't had the time lately. Have one Corny standing empty, one with a Coopers Lager that's been there about 8-10 months. I also have two Woodfordes Wherry tins to do! That stuff is outstanding! If you've never tried it, buy it, brew it, you'll love it!

tesco.com/dir…sku

EDIT: Sorry, a 'Corny' for those that don't know is a stainless steel keg. If you fancy going for your own little bar, you can make yourself a kegerator... that's not my set up, although I do have two cornies and my CO2 Bottle. That's just a plain fridge with a tower tap in the top to deliver your own carbonated, nice cool homebrew. If you haven't been involved in homebrew before, were involved years ago, it's nothing like it used to be... it was pretty grim stuff years ago. Now there are micro brewers everywhere, it's a MASSIVELY growing hobby and you get to produce stuff you can share with friends and family. Believe me, if you like ale/bitter, you will be very impressed with Woodfordes Wherry.

I'm now up to 5 Cornelius kegs. 3 are currently empty so planning to get them filled soon!!
Created a collar for an old chest freezer that I had lying around to raise the lid up so I can fit 2 kegs inside.

BeerDrinker, you used Starsan? I bought a bottle but haven't given it a go yet.

Yep, it's expensive but it lasts for ages. It is super concentrated so dilutes right down. If you have space, you can keep a batch made up in a spare bucket and use it pretty much indefinitely if the pH is in a specific range (check each time you use it with some litmus paper). I keep a solution made up in a spray bottle that I use all the time, spraying onto the keg posts and taps etc each time I change kegs or clean lines etc.

£16 free collection at Wilko, not sure if they are all available:

Nice one, thanks mate. Might get myself a 'spare' bucket in the Tesco sale! Wife will go doolally but you only live one!

EDIT: Meant to also ask, do you use Tesco bottled water to dilute? I've read a few forums saying that's the best...?

Use the maltmiller, he has a no rinse sterilizer that is cheaper.

As for kit choices, go for a coopers stout.

Also join jimsbeerkit.co.uk for lots of great home brew advice.

+1 for the Woodfords Wherry, very nice beer, I always buy a few in the sale.

I quite fancy giving the Mexican lager and the wherry a try. Would you recommend me picking up any of the accessories which you think would help?
Do I need a bucket to brew it in?

You will need to brew it in something and then transfer it into something. You need to be able to keep the air out in case bacteria infects the beer but you need an airlock to stop the build up of carbon dioxide. You can use empty pop bottles if you are on a budget (any bottle that previously held fizzy liquid will do). Look on YouTube for guidance ;-)

I just use tap water, luckily it's not that bad where I live, just on the outskirts of Glasgow. Just crush half a campden tablet into the water to remove all the chlorine etc.

Thinking about putting together a setup for my dad as he's mentioned getting into brewing a few times.
Think is he's not too handy these days, would you recommend getting a fermenting bin with a little bottler attached to make the bottling process easier?

When I used to live up north I used the tap water, although I now use Tesco bottled water (as recommended by my local home-brew shop) as the water in Colchester/Ipswich is hard as nails!

Damn it, had to spend £30 just so I can get free C+C

Thanks for the info.

So If I wanted to try the Mexican lager that they have on offer, is it just a case of getting a demijohn and some air locks?

Could I then just transfer it into some sterilised lager bottles and put new caps on?

Half way through my first batch of youngs APA which is lovely

Wish there were more pale ale ipa/apa selections I can't stand lager these days!

Have you researched this? Not meaning to be facetious, I just remember wondering the same thing myself age ago re: Starsan lifespan once diluted and recall reading information that the measure of the pH isn't an indication of whether the solution was still fit for use. So I read, another chemical does the sanitisising and degrades over time.

Just wondering what you think.

Yea but this makes 20 litres so you would probably need 4 demijohns but you can reuse beer bottles (you will then need a cappa to get the caps on). If you have swing top bottles they are idea. A brew bucket can be bought for about £12 from Wilkinson's.

Go to Amazon, search for the festival range. Brewferm also make excellent kits.

For the best taste move onto AG or BIAB. You will not regret it.
