    When chucking out a fair bit of my failed home brew it wasn't the beer that went that upset me, but the bottles I'd removed the labels from. I've kept back 40 but there isn't that much storage free for more if they aren't being used. :(

    existentialist Spartacus? No, never heard of him.

    You mean there's a big stash of clean de-labelled beer bottles hanging around unwanted...?

    I am going to try again. Just need to brave the cold and finish the dam patio and get the new shed up.

    I've still got a few kits floating around. Thinking next time a little aquarium heater in a tub of water so it's a more constant temp in my kitchen and buying a different yeast strain. And only doing one batch until I know it's alright.

    Annoyingly my cider was alright. I'm just not as keen on cider.

    I went feral with last two brews. Forty pints of stout and 40 of bitter. Couldn't be bothered with syphoning off and bottling up.
    Left in the cold for two months then just dug a carafe in repeatedly till gone.
    Tastes lush though.

    Whilst kegging is easier than bottling, I've now got some rust inside some of my kegs, which is a pain in the arse!

    We've just started on the first few bottles of last years 'Slider'.

    Cider made with left over gin-soaked sloe berries chucked in for good measure.

    Tasting report = Dangerous, very dangerous :D :cool:
