    Does anybody know if Tesco in Clearwater, Finglas still sell homebrew equipment/accessories?

    Was planning to make a trip down to grab a pack of carbonation drops and a few other bits to bottle some beer tomorrow but just wanted to make sure they still sell homebrew gear.

    Cheers in advance.

    I was thinking of using sugar but I really don't have the time to measure it all out unfortunately.

    For future reference, does normal granulated sugar work ok?

  • About half a teaspoon of ordinary sugar in a half-litre bottle should do fine if you're not being fussy. The yeast doesn't care.




  • caster sugar will dissolve quicker than table sugar, not sure how much this matters though.

    Are you using a bottling bucket? Throw it in before you rack the beer...




  • The selection in Clearwater is shocking, but there is a proper homebrew shop about a 2 minute drive away from it.

    In tesco caster sugar is also the cheapest, 1.09 per kilo for standard branded stuff, while the cheapest granulated is the value range for 1.19.

    I read people saying this is to price match lidl & aldi. I see most people blindly going for the big pallet of value sugar, presuming it is cheapest. Also in other threads I found that some thought caster sugar was a different thing altogether.
