Re: It’s competition time!!! Win a copy of Dave’s new book

Re: What i'm brewing at the moment

Hi Guys, haven't dabbled in this much but due to financial issues and my obsession with getting my weekly alcohol intake have just started drinking apple & blackcurrant double concentrate squash wine (don't like ribena) and what a bit of genius!! It's extremely sweet but I reckon a summers day i...
