Yeah, I'm pretty psyched about that. I'm making some tofu misozuke at the moment. One more month and it'll be ready to eat!

I'm doing the red pepper and tea recipes from this site-

Is this the right place to talk about homebrewed beer?

Go ahead.

Last year I made an easy lager, from a tin.
This year I am busy making my first brupack.

I started it during the hot spell, the first 3 days it bubbled like made then after a week stopped fermenting. Going to rack the first batch today, not sure if I have enough bottles. Might need to go hold up a bottle bank to get more.

Got another batch of homebrew on, and this time I plan to prime it for secondary fermentation with maple syrup instead of sugar. I reckon it'll give the beer a subtle maple syrup flavour. Has anybody tried this?

No, but always meant to. What kind of beer are you trying it with? Figure it'd be ace with a darker, porter style kit.

Kinda ruby ale. I live in a soft water area, so I usually brew porter or stout, but I wanted an all-rounder this time, that's good for summer evenings (optimism).

First taste of the latest brew (Pilsner kit) positive; bit bland but clearer than anything else I've brewed. Current brew is the same kit with some brewers sugar and hopped-malt, promising a bit more character.

Which kit is it?

I had my first bottle of Ale from (using spray malt) http://www.brupaks.com/bchoice%20old.htm after 10 days it was not carbonated yet, which was a disappointment. Will give it more time and hope the batch is not all dead.

I'm a bit of a purist, I don't put any sugar in my beer, except for the bottle conditioning at the end.

How much maple syrup would you recommend per a pint, 5ml or maybe a little more? Bottling next batch up this weekend and might give the maple syrup a go.

I used 8ml per 500ml bottle, but I did dilute it with a bit of hot water first, so it'll work out about 5ml.
