    I've tried both and inbetween. All methods seemed fine, but they definitely affect the flavour. Have a play and see what you think.

    I heat water close to boiling before filling my stovetop anyway. Grind and water temp are your main brewing variables here.

    Fruit boxes are pretty good for books. Small enough that they're not too heavy when full and pretty strong

    Fixing a slow filling & flushing toilet turned into discovering that all our stop cocks are seized, turning the water off at the street, emptying the cold water tank, finding the faulty rubber diaphragm, finding that the local plumbing place is closed, reassembling everything, picking all the bits of rotten wood out of the bottom of the cold water tank, turning the water back on, finding that both the hot taps don't work, clearing the airlock(s) out of the hot water system wth a combination of blowing down the vent pipe at the top and sucking water out of the hot taps, finding out the cold taps don't work, finding that sucking on the taps doesn't get rid of the airlock, so I end up having to run a hosepipe through the house to backflush the airlock out into the cold tank.

    What a ballache, just to shift a turd.

    At least the toilet flushes a bit better now, even though it's not really fixed.

    Not touching anything now - it can all be done when we get the boiler replaced with an unvented cylinder.

    hope it provided!

    Eventually - ended up on a 10 mile detour after missing a turn on the canal and ending up in Limehouse by mistake, but made it in the end.

    Always good to see faces you recognise around town!
