    Default The Forgotten Laboratory


    So....after an unavoidable two-months-plus break (blame work, money, other people working on the few occasions I was free etc) I'm back.

    Nestled somewhere in the UK lies an unassuming building, which until about 5 years ago housed bio-laboratories and engineering labs. Now the building is going to be reused, and all of this will soon be gone. It is literally like the last workers on the last day gathered their coats, turned off the lights and locked the door behind them, leaving everything inside, untouched.

    Apologies for the more than dodgy light in a few, the majority were taken handheld.

    Blimey some of that stuff is old, I recognize the Edwards valve which was a design that came out in the 1970's, It was crap. There is even an older Genivac valve there as well. You found the Arc

    Nice clean crisp shots mate. Love the huge glass Carbouy! I used to have one of those to bulk brew my Elderberry Wine in

    Great explore :)
