£35.77 including VAT & delivery

£49.95 including VAT & delivery (£1.39/pint)


I learned of this from an advert in the Camra monthly newspaper Beer Matters

Glad to be a beard wearing member now :rolleyes:

why didn't you get the Keltek King, you lightweight bedwetter?

So that's 28p VAT
41p Duty
10p for the bottle
and 15p a bottle for P&P
and probably only 10p profit per pint

So I make that £1.04. So the cost of production must be about 35p a pint.

So that's 10p for the tap water. 2p for the mud and 23p for the antifreeze.

Enjoy. :laugh

I wouldn't have gone to your cremation after this anyway. You'd be full of lighter fluid.

Worryingly all money saving posts make posters sound like a sad permie trying to make ends meeting having not had a pay rise in the past six years.

Either that or a contractor who spends a lot of time keeping the bench warm.

More sensibly can we have a review once you've drunk it as the price does look plausible when compared to the 4 for £5 Tesco does every so often.

Of course you only drink the finest champagne. And eat swans wings. :eyes

Hey, it's not all about price. There's enjoyment to be had from brewing your own beer, wine making, baking bread and so on.

I used to brew beer by the gallon in a pressure vessel so had it on draught, one on tap one brewing. Wine on the go at the same time producing about a dozen bottles per run (best drunk young).

Bread I make and freeze but give most of it to friends.

Home brewed beer can be better than commercial by a long way, the wine is drinkable and the bread is second to none and could be a plan B should I be arsed.

All very true, bread baked at home is better than the junk from the supermarket. The Mrs makes bread, cakes and in the past few years I've made enough jam to keep us in .... jam ... all year round.

I've not tried brewing beer. So I need to know how long this suityone plugged beer will keep in the polything?

SUITYONE I NEED YOUR INPUT. :smile

I think Suity3-472 confirm that he is a man if we ignore rumours of milkmen....

I actually think he is a man with a plan b. Unfortunately the government cut backs will stop his plan b at £26k a year regardless of the 400 children he has to support.
