How did this work out Blueshed?
makes me sad to see a thread with no replies...  :'(

it was infected, tasted of bitter vinegar and smelt of rotten grapefruit. apart from that it was ok  :P

have 2 brews bottled almost 3 weeks, will put up reports next week all going well.

Unlucky.

I found a couple of these kits (& the Bitter which was quality in BrenMurph's) last week so going to getthem on next week. Get a few kegs of easy drinking beer for these dark nights.

Sorry to hear it Blueshed. Win some, lose some  :'(

Just curious though... What did you do with the orange, lemon, cloves, cardamon and fennel?
Did you bang them straight in or did you give them a quick boil to soften and sanitize them?

Put in 300ml of boiled water for 15mins, strained then put 300ml into FV.
