    Same here but just bought a bradley smoker but couldn't find a trout for love or money in our local Morrison's over the weekend ended up buying some mackerel instead lol
  2. So out of interest guys how many of you have had a go and made some and tried it yet Sweet violets bubblegum cinnamon toffee caramel hazlenut and candy floss that's the flavours I've tried all of them are good but the toffee caramel is my favourite so far
  3. Sweet violets bubblegum cinnamon toffee caramel hazlenut and candy floss that's the flavours I've tried all of them are good but the toffee caramel is my favourite so far i cut mine down to 30 % abv i use an alcometer you cant use a standard wine or beer hydrometer to cut your proof acholol ok
  4. It's drinkable as you make it but I found its better after 24 hours the flovours really come together and if you don't down the lot a couple of weeks is better still its fantastic ive got a 1/4 of bottle left I done before Christmas i,m in the process of polishing it off now tonight very nice on the rocks
  5. If your budget allows it and your not doing anything heavy or cutting big stuff how about the sthil ms 140 battery powered 10 inch chainsaw I bought one just before Christmas and its a fantastic piece of kit I use mine more than my Petrol saws now they are light no noise no pulling a pull cord no fumes brilliant and they cut a hell of a lot faster than my Petrol saws I always dismissed them as toys but I was very wrong admittely they have there limititions but for firewood they are ideal I have 40 years experience using saws in my line of work they have been a revelation
  6. I don't know about that but I found 125 ml in 500 ml of vodka I found was right for my palete well just have fun experimenting
  7. Lol theres a surprise like watering down the beer years ago like some used to do But seriously folks Just a word of warning to everyone though high proof alcholol in plastic bottles is not recommend and there's a reason why glass bottles are used high proof alcohlol can leach out and disolve the nasties in plastic and hold it in suspension so be careful
  8. I did my own rhubarb and ginger that was rather nice but took too long I didn't like the wait lol 😳😳😳
  9. My advise sell it and buy yourself a good coarse medium and fine diamond hone set i have a complete lansky 6 stone set in the case in the shed i paid a lot of money for the thing at the time when i bought it I wasn't a fan I could never get that ,"razor edge" on a blade as the advertising claimed it could the magic bullet in sharpening systems it was not in my humble opinion anyway i know how to use a sharpening stone but i just couldnt get on with the lansky system a good set of diamond hones are the way and if your sharpening knives for butchery then a good diamo
  10. Lol permission to speak sir. I have a cunning plan
  11. Personally I'd try it first without adding the vanilla pod because it's very tasty as it is I find shake the bottle or jar up once you have made it and let it stand for 24 hours to let the flavours mingle trust me you,'ll enjoy it
  12. Yeah have a butcher's I think they stock 5 or 6 different syrups off the top of my head but not all of them are in stock all at once I think it's a £ 1.00 a bottle theres toffee caramel , hazel nut , bubblegum , candy floss , parma violets ( the toffee caramel and the hazelnut are my personal favourites ) But i cant remember the other flavour but be careful you can over do it you can make it sickly sweet but when you get it right its very good well put it this way its been a big hit with everyone who has tried it so far turns a run of the mill vodka or neutral into somethi
  13. I know this thread is over 6 years old but did you know that in home bargins you can buy 250 ml bottles of toffee carmel syrup by a firm called splendid syrups there are other flavours available as well 125 ml in 500 ml of vodka or a neutral produces someting akin to the nectar of the gods bloody lovely and very very drinkable I found with a bit of trial and error that 125 ml in 500 ml of vodka was perfect for my taste buds but be careful it can be cloyingly over sweet if you go overboard with the syrup
  14. 👍👍👍 Thumbs up for the tongmaster burger and sausage seasonings and butchers sundries are both very very good in my experience
  15. in my case its the other way round i find that with the lyvale ribbed 410 cases if I reload with fibre wads they will chamber in my Mossberg 500 hushpower and fire but they just won't eject no signs of pressure etc the mossy just does not like em smooth wall cases no problems The wads are just that little bit oversized and they expand the case ever so slightly when loading if I use plastic wads i dont have a problem so I just use them now
