Well I got back in time to make sure this had finished fermenting, faffed about a bit and bottled it all. I couldn't resist so fridged a couple yesterday and just opened. Winner! It's 4% which is fine enough, but I feel like I should buy some real guinness so I can actually try and compare. In any case I like it and am on the 2nd already :D.

After I bottled I managed to clean everything up and throw in a "Wilkos Mexican Cerveza" one can kit, where it's 1.5Kg or wtf of LME as opposed to the stout above which was 2 cans and more spendy. So to get the gravity (and alcohol) up they tell you to throw a Kg of brewers sugar in. So hopefully that'll work nicely anyway, and be an easier drink for those who have yet to appreciate the joys of a nice stout.

Oh yeah and then I bought a fancy mash tun thing because I'm a fool.

Then I painted the garage and am 75% of the way through building a bench/table to work on in there.

Finally took the remaining ones apart! I've got a bucket with a scary number of bent nails in it. Them pallets are meant to stay in one piece!
