Had a quick look in Aldi, but not woolies. It seems everywhere is doing the tetrapacks now.

Nort and Unclebarrel- how long ago did you get those bottles?

To be honest I don't remember.
The missus has had them for kids parties for a few years now. So I guess we got them that long ago.

Sorry I'm not a real help there !

Try small delicatessens also, you know the ones with the Italian yummy sections ! They might have something similar.

my first brew (which i have all but finished - went like this -

morgans pils straight out of the box of complete brew kit with a hydrometer thrown in (for free, apparently). used kit pack yeast at about 33 degrees (learning curve). fermented 5 days, used finings, most of the dumb things

after bottling, at :
18 mins old - tasted like goats piss
35 mins old - no change
1 week - no change
2weeks - improvement - tasted like cats piss
3 weeks - no change
5 weeks - improvement - tasted like my piss
6 weeks - improvement - tasted like the wife's piss
8 weeks - improvement - tasted like the neighbour's wife's piss
9 weeks - improvement - tasted like beer if i sat on the roof and sang 'balabalabalabala' while wearing nosepeg and expensive sunglasses.

but yeah - it does improve immensely, relative to initial taste. i've got 2 stubbies left - one to try at each of 5 and 6 months to see how they travel.

my 2nd batch were a LOT better
pitched at 26 degrees, fermented 13 days, etc etc.
even the wife thought the 2ndbatch was pretty good at 5 weeks

See what happens when you ferment at cooler temps? It stops tasting like a lot of different types of piss. If you ferment at 18-20 it will probably taste like beer.

The main thing that is bothering me is why you know so much about urine.

Urologist perhaps?
