    Keezer Drip Tray Issue

    Liquid nails worked ok for me.. Drip tray has been solid for about 3 years now. Perhaps you didn't clean the surface 1st?

    Allternative To Dme

    I used DME for a starter in my last cider. It was a 2L starter and you would never know that there was any DME in there. Probably didnt even need to do a starter, as I use dry champagne yeast. EC1117 or something like that.

    Castle Hill Show Competition 2012

    Hey Pete, at least you didnt try to late hop with Boadiccea like I did. Ive got one in the keg which I am considering chucking (1st time). Just hoping that it will get better with age, but probably not. Might pour myself one now actually.

    What Does Your Lady Drink

    She drinks anything that I brew apart from Wheat, she doesn't like the yeast. She will drink lagers, pale ales, porters, stouts, IPA, IIPA, even an 100+IBU 11.5% IIPA that I made recently. This is a bit of a problem as it's hard enough to keep a steady supply up for myself, and Im not too keen...

    1/2 Inch Silicon Washer/gasket

    If you have any excess silicon hose, cut a bit off that, slice it lenghtways to flatten it out then cut it to shape. Otherwise Aldi often has cheap silicon baking trays.

    Vacuum Sealer From Bulk Buy While Ago

    Hi Barls I bought one of those in that BB. It is currently sitting in the recycling bin, but I can get it out if you want it. Motor still runs, just doesnt suck (which really does suck). I think it inhaled to much hop dust. I cant be bothered trying to fix it. I replaced it yesterday with a far...

    Aldi Vacuum Sealers

    I will be buying one. My last one that I bought in a recent bulk buy packed it in. Stopped sucking, I think due to sticky hop dust/resin getting sucked into the pump. Havent really had any dud purchases from Aldi, so expect that this will be fairly good quality.
