Frogs and Hedgehogs probably Mash but it's a head scratcher for sure. I've two bins with the French stuff stuck at 1100 and as flat as a witches tit for the last two days. I reckon a drop of bicarb tomorrow might be my next step.

Yeah, during the recent atypical heawave in Scotland, I left a neutral wash without any extra heat.
Three weeks later it has only reached 1.096, and still bubbling quietly.
My norm, is a heaped dsp of bicarb, on day two. Which happened here.
My advise?, if it ain't fizzing, then run it.

Robert,

Did it work? Did you mean 1100?

I always referenced "as COLD as a witches tit".

The may well be flat though, what with all the wind buffeting, over a couple of hundred years.
Something... something inspiring and Signature related.

"Cold as a landlords heart." makes sense.
