Re: Pressure Barrel

I'm actually going to prime the barrel with 80g of sugar and use the c02 when the pressure has dropped. The valve i bought has a pressure release valve so you can't over pressurise apparently.

Re: Begineers Beer recipe

Hi Andy, I have also been brewing all-in-one single can beer kits, however, i find them a little insipid and cidery even with spray malt and brewing sugar. My next move is going to be trying a "dry" kit once i purchase a pan large enough to use. Possibly something like this: http://www.ama...

Re: Borage flower wine

Thanks for the heads up, it was the possibility of it being blue that was appealing also. I will give it a miss. Do you have any other suggestions for Borage as it's there every year and it seems a shame not to use it!

Mulled Apple Wine Recipe

I have some over sweet apple wine that will be good for making into mulled apple wine at Christmas. So could anyone suggest a recipe or should I just have a go at a recipe for mulled cider?

Any suggestions appreciated.

Thanks

Re: Raisins

Hi Mike!

Thanks for this i well may give it a go, shame i didn't see it a couple of weeks ago as i will be buying sherry this christmas.

Is this wine drinkable as soon as its cleared? I imagine it gets better with age.

Thanks again.

Re: Sweetening cider before bottling

If you think fermentation over than don't add potassium sorbate or campden tablets unnecessarily . You didn't say what you were fermenting in but if possible rack into a second container and leave the cider to clear under airlock, in a garage/shed it should only take a couple of weeks this weather. ...
