New years resolution...save money by getting legless off my own grog

good find i love brewing my own beer

^ yeah this
not really cheaper, but do it right and you do usually end up with stuff that's a whole lot nicer than Carling or whatever

hope the deals are still there when the pay comes in, could do with a couple bits & pieces

Google for Wurzels Orange Wine - I make it using one carton of grape juice and one of apple juice. Lovely dry white wine in 2 weeks, costs me about £4 for 5 litres.

What a load of rubbish. I brew my own for roughly 45p per pint for beer, 50p per pint 9% cider and wine is about 70-90p per bottle....I would love to see those prices in the shops.

The secret is to stock up when there are sales.

How much is a 3L bottle of beer? I have never seen beer sold in any larger amounts than a 750ml bottle.

I have a small collection of strong ciders. They age very well and who doesn't like a strong drink every once and a while.

Sweet! Could do with another pressure barrel!

good deal and have been brewing and wine making for a while and it's a whole lot cheaper and generally nicer, beer in particular!

Anyone have any experience of the pressure barrel with C02 injector?Is it reliable?

Hot, hot, hot. sent her in doors to get my stock up for christmas.

cheers!

Home Brewing is the dogs ****

The Geordie BKE is a bargain at £4.60

I have a pear tree and have always fancied making a pear cider because we can never eat enough pears before they go off. Unfortunately despite googling I'm still at a loss as to what I actually need to start brewing home pear cider other than the pears.

You just need something to juice your pears with, a container for the juice and a packet of yeast (cider or ale yeast). Thats it.

There are countless step by step guides just google for "make cider from apples" or "make cider from apple juice" and use your pears instead.

Is this nationwide? I couldn't see any discounts on their website.

What would I need as a starter kit?

oO is that a euphemism ?

i like the stella, which one would compare to that taste? I would like the strength to be around 5%

I don't brew kits anymore and have 10 buckets, heat though although they put the prices up month back and these savings are the standard price before.

Also making your own beer costs more? What? I've just brewed 2 batches from grain cost me less than 10p a litre

If i buy this do I need all the extra accessories and equipment or can you make beer just from the kit? I am guessing you just need a few buckets to brew it in right?

I've only brewed from kits. Is it easy to do it from grain?

Hahaha

Ordered 2 of the Milestone kits, not giving them away, but good beer at a fair price. Why do people buy shop beer ? Heat

Good find!

Partridge in it?

Im yet to find anywhere that sells beer for 30p a pint! You were clearly doing home brew all wrong if you found it more expensive

Sugar, simples

The satisfaction of drinking your own beer is worth the time. If you think that it's more expensive than buying mass produced p1ss, then you aren't doing it right.

The kits are naff. It's just as easy to really brew your own. Just buy the ingredients online and throw em together. Bam! Beer!

Utter gibberish

Fab! MY husband's been after a kit for ages now and keeps dropping hints for Christmas. That's him sorted. Thank you!

In case anyone is in need of a fermenting bin, these at amazon for £5 are a lot cheaper than the shop bought ones. You will want to calibrate them anyway, so a much cheaper alternative. amazon.co.uk/Cha…ket

Hope this might help someone,

Cheers, Mark.

Yeh I hope you have checked these are food / alcohol grade buckets otherwise they will leech harmful chemicals into your brew.

in a kit you'll likely get a fermentation bucket with a tin of 'beer mollasses' (cant remember correct term) and beer yeast sachet and sterilising powder. If it doesnt include sugar you'll need 1kg, best to get 'beer sugar' (again cant remember correct term). This will get you through first fermentation which takes a week (needs to be about 18c temp), then syphon beer into either a pressure barrel (40 pints) or equivalent bottles - but means sterilising all bottles. What I did was get this lot in total (from wilkos), bit of an outlay but the more you make the less it costs: primary fermentation bucket, heat belt, pressure barrel, pressure barrel lid with valve (needed to use CO2 capsules to keep half full beer under pressure), sterilising powder, CO2 capsules, long spoon; each brew will require tin of beer, sugar, yeast, sterilising, CO2. Think thats all the basics - its simple enough really.
