Re: marrow rum ?

This is off the top of my head as I have never made marrow rum .... but, the recipes that I have seen is just neat rum poured into a marrow and allowed to drip through.

Re: marrow rum ?

ive been told that sometimes it can have something to do with the amount off yeast put in, you could try adding a bit more. but you may aswell try a bit for yourself before hand. if its ok then dont bother adding any yeast. i think, going of a recipee that i have got, that you dont ever put yeast in...

Re: Uses for used cat litter?

you could always put some of it beneath the soil in plant pots, or mix it in with your neet compost, say one shovel of cat litter to 3 or 4 of soil, which would help with drainage in wet areas or again in pots??

Imagine our surprise when we discovered that it's completely uninsulated (not a word about it in the survey :angryfire:), alt...
