    Ordered 2 - but order via shop and went directly to check-out i.e. did not view cart first. Could not find place to apply code?
    Ooops - just seen where code should have gone

    This after 10 days in the bottle, carbonation ok but taste wise it needs more time in the bottle.

    This is the Pale Ale, itís got potential.

    Also bottled my own Scallywag IPA this afternoon.

    Now 14 days in the bottle and the potential is showing, nice smooth and somewhat sweet beer. I think it will just improve from here onwards.

    So after 14 days in the bottle, mine has exactly the fizz I prefer .... just to be sure I drank 4L on Sunday

    I might have a leak somewhere.

    Haha at least you have an excuse, mine are in 400ml bottles .... so you can imagine how terrible that looks seeing I can't chuck the bottles, need them for round 2. So everything was stacked on the counter.

    Needles to say, picking up the 2nd drum of wort tomorrow.

    I don't have to lie to my wife about how much I drink. I have to add that it helps that this pale ale is very similar in strength to a Castle Lite. Means you can drink a few while not getting sloshed. It really helps.

    Also I have so many damn bottles everywhere it'll be impossible to keep track of how much I drink. I think there's around 400 bottles around my place, and I have more incoming

    Still got plenty in stock, guys. Discount code #get200 gives you R200 off your kit, making it R400 for yours. Great pricing for great beer, I'd say!

    Could not agree more - took the plunge again last week .... I think the members are missing the train on this.

    Could anyone give advice as to where to get suitable bottles in the joburg/Pretoria area?

    Do the bottles have to be refrigerated or just kept cool?

    there are a couple of websites you can try, they pop up when you google. Consol should also be able to supply.

    Just keep them out of the sun, I keep mine in the garage, it works well.

    My newest batch has 1 week to go before bottling. My fourth batch is waiting in a dark cupboard.

    I think if you get a woody it might be a little extreme?
