    Cost Per Brew?

    I recently purchased some discontinued stock from coles(wheat beer-$2.20 a can) plus $2.68 for dextrose. It ended up costing me 0.18c per longneck!!!!!!!!

    Sulphur Smell....help!

    Thx for the replies guys.... about the temp being at 26 degrees- can't be helped, that's how warm it is in my laundry unfortunatley, and HOOPS- yes it smells absolutely disgusting- rotten egg X 10, pretty bad, but I will persevere as you suggested, and hope that time fixes these issues. Cheers

    Muntons Imperial Stout Ideas.
