Homebrew supplies and Bottles
« on: June 29, 2010, 16:16 »
Well I decided to start my homebrew season at last (did a damson Gin last year and OMG it was great in fact to good our friends drank it all!!!).

So I've decided to do some Elderflower champain etc and some wine. so I'm trying to understand were do you get your bottles from I do have a stash of old bottles (screw top) but I'm going to want the swing top bottles.

Also does anyone know of a good homebrew shop / supplies in the Evesham / Worceshire area? (yes done a Yell search just checking before I go driving etc...)

Wilkos is very good quick is where I got my demijohns from. You might be better with the screw top bottles for elderflower campagne. It is VERY fizzy when brewing and the pressure needs releasing at least once a day which is actually quite difficult with the flip top lids as it really fizzes up and is hard to control. That was my experience last year with the flip top bottles (which were very useful for the cordial etc though). Also best not to use glass as the pressure can build enough to explode it, again personal experience!
Be like a duck. Calm on the surface but always paddling like the dickens underneath.

There used to be a good little wine shop in Studley, and the guy who owned it was very helpful. Not sure if it's still there as moved out of the area a few years ago, but if it is, I def recommend it.

No two gardens are the same. No two days are the same in one garden.

This is an excellent shop that does mail order  http://www.leylandhomebrew.com/

Good bottles are the plastic mixer bottles you can buy Ginger ale and Tonic Water etc in at supermarkets, they are available in 1 and 1/2 Ltr sizes.  They will hold a lot of pressure and re-usable.

Try Dee Jay Supplies, 1694 Bristol Road South, Longbridge, Birmingham, B45 9TZ (Tel: 0121 661 3249).

They've got everything you might want for homebrew (including stills!) but they don't open on Sunday or Monday.
