"You can use Star San no rinse sanitiser. Dilute in a spray bottle. Like yourself, if I can do things naturally or organically it's my preference. Unfortunately the fundamental key to a healthy fermentation is cleanliness so it's critical."

"Hello stranger! Nice work on perfecting the rum! I've just made a mulberry beer and to avoid infection you can cryovac the berries and take it to a boil. That will kill everything and you won't dilute or stew the fruit."

2014 Garlic Crop

"Nice, mine average about 20 grams so I'm just going to roast the lot in the pizza oven. It's still a few kilos worth but who has the time to bother with such painfully small bulbs!"

2014 Garlic Crop

"Nice work Elaine. How big are the bulbs? I pulled out over 200 bulbs a few weeks ago but they are painfully small! Who ever named Glen Large is having a joke I think!"
