    Where does all the knowledge come from?

    Nothing wrong, and everything right, with staying with kit and kilo brewing. No need to do anything else if you're, like me, happy with a great kit-produced beer that's every bit as good as a craft product. As you quoted, it's the KISS principle - keep it simple, stupid.

    Good one mate.

    Carbonation Drop Quantity

    12 months is asking a bit much. I usually wait around 1 month which makes the last bottle 2 months old @ 1 PET bottle per night. The only drawback is it makes the commercial beer taste like piss.

    Keeping Your Fridge Clean

    I bought a piece of 6mm stainless steel cut to size, but not without drama. I gave the measurements to the lad on a piece of paper and he cut it and I took it home. It was cut too short. Went back and got the correct size cut. It's hard to get good help.

    That would be the weakest argument I've heard against using carb drops.

    Lusty, your opionations (is that a word?)are quite welcome. But there will always be someone who must slip in the negative personal vibe. It's in their DNA. Best ignored.

    Yes Lusty, that's about where I am. And I didn't get that gut from drinking pissy Coronas.

    You could eat your lunch out of my fridge.

    I find it much simpler dropping 2 carb drops into 30 PET bottles than mixing up water and sugar and racking the brew into another container which could increase the risk of infection. Then you have an extra container to clean and sterilise. Why make extra work for yourself?

    What you can't pick up about brewing in this forum isn't worth knowing.

    Bottles

    By the time I drink my last PET of a 30 bottle batch it's 2 months old, so no chance of going flat. The only thing I've found is they tend to overcarb if I use an extra half kg of LDM in a recipe (1.5 kg as against the usual 1 kg).

    With trepidation?

    Bottles

    Holy crap! It seems I've been panicking too early with the PET's. I toss them after 15 brews or so. Looks like they're good for a few more than that.

    Bottles

    PET bottles are light, easy to store in the cupboard or on the bottle tree, and last a long time. (How often PET bottles can be re-used is still a matter of conjecture).
