    Hoop nie hulle bars nie, ek het maar suinig gewerk met die suiker.
    Hulle behoort OK te wees.

    Niks keer jou om na 4 dae een oop te maak en te toets nie.

    Ons verstaan die probleem

    Ja ek het ook net 4 dae gelees en dit was al klaar 'n skok

    Sal maar geduld gebruik. Het wel so bietjie van die spillage geproe en dis nogal 'n bitter hoppy outjie die

    Het toe nie nodig gehad om te suig nie. Het gaan 12mm tube koop en toe lekker langerige stuk aluminium pyp onder aangesit wat lekker in die kan pas, en toe bietjie water en miltons in die pyp opgesuig en met skoon vinger toegedruk om vacuum te hou, toe die ander end in die bucket gedruk en toe die water laat uitloop en dit suig dan die bier op, bietjie spillage maar darm nie te veel nie

    Al myne is in 10, 2L en 2.25L bottels. Hul is so 70% vol elk. Dan het ek 2 1L bottels. Ek sal hul maar as die proefkonyne gebruik, maar nou is ek bang die teelepel en 'n half was te min suiker. Sal Sondag 'n 1L toets en dan miskien my "grand opening" los vir volgende Vrydag....

    Gelukkig is daar 20liter so ek sal so vanaf dag 4 af begin toets. Ek kan nou nie meer wag nie. Dit sal verseker nie oud word nie

    Die flavours "kalmeer" bitter baie as hy nou eers 'n week of twee staan, bietjie gas inkry en yskoud gedrink word. Vat een van jou Windhoek lagers, laat word hom kamertemperatuur, skud hom tot hy flat is en proe bietjie. Dis ook maar lekker hoppy

    Die bier IS meer hoppy as Castle, ek het ook geproe, maar dis lekker. Ek hou van hom. My beskrywing (wat ek voor die tyd uitgedink het) is nogals spot on.

    Nee ek kla nie - ek like bier wat na bier smaak, nie die afgewaterde komersiele vlou tee nie.

    Jy sal regtig bly wees as jy 2 weke laat staan, dit sal 'n groot verskil maak.

    Veral as jy redelik min suiker in het om te carbonate.

    Quick question - is miltons diluted in water as per their instruction, bad for humans when swallowed? - asking for a friend

    If you (the friend) can post again after bottling, no.

    If the bubbling stops after 7 days is there any harm in leaving it for the full 14 days?

    Ooh ouch, ja nee.

    Ok cool, I'm in no hurry as I still have ample supply of windhoek and other lekka aperitifs.
    So the idea is to bottle next week Sunday

    I had a batch fermenting, almost ready to bottle when I ended up in ICU for 5 weeks after a bike accident, and then recovery in a wheelchair for another few months.

    Had not other choice but outsourcing the cleaning of my fermentation box, it was alive
