I put a homebrew kit on my Christmas wish list, but Ruth ignored because she thought I was joking.
She recently mentioned it to somebody that she works with, and he has subsequently given me most of the kit I need to start.
Today, I went to Salford Homebrew to get the following:
- Campden tables
- Wine finings
- Brown demijohn
- Sterilising powder
- "First Steps in Winemaking" by C.J.J. Berry (book)
- A heating belt
- A Shiraz wine kit
On the way back home, I popped into Waterstones at the Trafford Centre and picked up a copy of "Traditional home wine making" by Paul and Ann Turner.
The demijohn is now in my cellar, bubbling away nicely for the next two weeks...
