    What are the files? If you just want to open them quickly try opening them with VLC player there's hardly anything it won't play.

    I've been playing around with a few but this one was 250g of plain flour (just normal bread flour, I tried to use caputo 00 pizza but they're weren't as good), 3 or 4 heaped dessert spoons of yoghurt (my wife can't eat dairy so I used alpro natural), 1 teaspoon of doves farm quick yeast.

    Mix flour and yeast in a bowl with some salt, make a well in the middle add yoghurt and a tbsp of olive oil mix together and the add small amounts of water until you get a dough you can knead, knead for about 10 mins then leave in an oiled bowl until it doubles in size (only takes about an hour with the doves farm yeast)

    I cook them on high heat, the same as pizza, but they cook in about half the time and need a lot of turning (I coat them in garlic oil every time I turn them)

    So, just decorated the tree, it's the same one I posted on this page a few years ago. I repotted it, put it in the garden and just bring it in for Christmas. I've lost the pikachu that used to sit on top though.

    It's developed a more rustic look over the years but I prefer it.

    I repotted it because this was the first real Christmas tree I'd bought and hated the thought of just binning it, no idea how big it'll get but hopefully the pot will stop it getting too big to carry in for a few years yet.

    It kind of depends where you plan on playing but if you can have everything as wav (or flac) that would be best. A lot is made of the difference between mp3 and and lossless but tbh if the mp3 is 320kbps most people can't tell the difference and I found that it's only in a club with a big soundsystem that you can can hear the difference and even then its most noticeable when you mix from a wav to an mp3.

    With naming conventions I always did artist first then track name as I never remember track names but always remembered songs by the producer, I don't think there's a right or wrong but I put an underscore instead of the spaces in the name (artist_track_name) as this usually makes it easier for different systems to read files without adding weird symbols (it's not likely but I remember copying files from mac to PC and things got scrambled)

    How you organise things is the most important, do you group by BPM/Key etc that's just going to be a bit of trial and error to see what works for you, what I would advise is that if you play out you take a record bags worth of tracks (no more that 50) on a USB stick to make it easier to play a set, if you've got thousands of tracks sometimes you can get paralysed buy too much choice or just lose flow in a mix by being too all over the place.

    Anyway I haven't DJ'ed in years so feel free to ignore everything I say :)

    Another comically over priced 'Japanese' whisky.

    Whoa I didn't see that delivery charge. Angel Homebrew seems to have them in stock though, 175 quid (inc delivery) if you get the full kit.

    If I had a proper outside set up like pathracer I'd definitely invest in something like the SS but it's a bit overkill for me at the moment.

    I wouldn't be able to get full use of it as I don't have a fridge to cold crash and bottle carbonated or just serve from the fermzilla but I like the advantages of the faster fermentation and how clean and easy it looks to use.

    With the 2 year thing, that seems to be what the manufacturer says but people with the previous version seen to have got more than 2 years out of it (you can also buy replacement bubbles).

    They seem to be available on angel homebrew and aliexpress (although I've never ordered anything from there so have no idea about customs charges and delivery times)

    Has anyone used a fermzilla? Everything I've seen online looks good but does anyone have any first hand experience of them?

    I think the sleep deprivation is getting to me (baby's teething and I'm not getting great nights at the moment) , I meant American oak cask, and that it tastes more like a bourbon/American whiskey.

    Not sure if it's natural colour (I doubt it) and it's definitely chill filtered.
