  2. Roof Mounted Lamp On Pickup

    One I had fitted to my old Diatsu the water came down the inside of the T bar and screwed the switch up, I tried the suction cup one one the clulight, the system seems good, the similar light force one looks worth a try, don’t think I would drill the roof again, personal preference though.

    i agree about temp consistency but how do you lads achieve it, I have a brew heater, it’s similar to a fish tank heater,I am up on the borders, and the temp is up and down like a brides knighty, also how do think barometric pressure affects it, or even if you agree it does,

    I only ask as I say Hugh fearnly doing some on river cottage, and they seemed to just pour it into a wood barrel and seal it, I often wondered why it didn’t blow,

    did they keg it or stick it in a jar with air lock, they recon a garden shredder works well for pulping the apples,

  7. Tunnel Trap New To Me.

    I never use markers where members of the public have access to the land. Indentations on mole hills, strands of wool, white spray paint; anything that'll point me to the spot but won't catch the eye of a footpather. Thats sensible, enough..but i personally never use any type, of evident marker,...Thats ok till you end up with a field full of mole hills, then the old timers desease kicks in, but if there’s only a couple of lines of hills then no issues, easy to relocate them,

    there could be a way some instrument, I would take a guide from what the instructions say it should end at, I think that’s your only option now,

    have you seen the ones made from drinking fountain water bottles they look handy, I was given a carboy (25litre ?) but I never got round to using it.....not hard to acquire though. If you're gonna go, go big ! I think she’s buying me a fruit press and I have access to loads of apples too late this year now, so will have to dig through some old posts, for next yr anybody know anything about useing Sankey barrels/ kegs as I am thinking of useing a couple of them

    I think with these being bolt/fasten on, you should be able to fit it further down the neck, making for a tighter seal at the mouth / bottle opening, and of course you will be able to swap them from bottle to bottle, should you need to although unlikely you will ever need to,

    the coopers irish stout it really nice if made with spraymalt instead of sugar.yes its spot on I have done this with brewing sugar instead of normal white sugar its very tasty, I bottled there stout, and kegged a bitter, am going to get some in for Xmas, trying to get some flip top bottles Aldi are doing a beer festival....loads of beers in flip top bottles.... buying em full of beer works out a few quid more expensive than buying em empty!!!! I'd a batch of cider go manky on me once upon a time. Swing top bottles, I figure the seals (first use) weren't doing their job. On opening if you didn't get a good POP! you knew it was mank. Got a capper after that and didn't look back. Get as many empty bottles down the local as you can handle. The Home Brew websites sell replacement seals for the swing tops - I came across a load of Grolsch bottles a few years ago and I washed them up and sterilised them but the seals were gone and I saw them on a website, only a few bob for a 100 - Job done. https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F182502982410 these are them if the link works ok, got to be worth a try, it will take a while to get them due to being in China, but looks as if they will fit any bottle,
