    Grainfather or Braumeister

    I went for the Grainfather (GF).The reason was the upfront cost. I believe the braumeister (BM) is a superior build quality - example ... can see that they have tooled up to create parts such as bottom mesh pieces whereas the GF is taking off the shelf mesh, cutting and using silicon seal...

    Comment by 'Cecilweetabix' in media 'Cellar'

    Hi Seaquebrew - That's something I had not thought about. The air con is dumping out the warm air not recirculating - plus there are wall vents that I usually leave blocked but can open - so should be good I have just ordered my first 6Kg CO2 canister yesterday - so certainly something to be...

    Newbie to site - and brewing. N0.10 Brewery up and running

    Sorry all - I meant 67C. Sparged at 72C. I used the Grainfather and took about 20 mins to get to 67C.

    WTF are CO2 tanks so expensive here?

    The price issue is called the Australia Tax. High cost of living means high margins on everything here. Just feels like you are being ripped off so much of the time. Still - I know where I would rather be:)

    Bottling day1

    Bottling day today. Cant wait to progress to kegs, but thank god for the 250 Grolsch bottles I found on ebay. Followed a recipe I found in The Big Book of Home Brew - a Kiwi guide - of Epic Pale Ale. Great book BTW - it was what gave me the confidence to get off my arse and progress from...

    New brewer from Olympic Park, Sydney

    Hi Brendan Agree with some of the other replies below and can certainly recommend the Grainfather. Am using this in my cellar which would certainly be smaller than apartment space.

    Newbie to site - and brewing. N0.10 Brewery up and running

    Hello anyone:) Started brewing here in Sydney about a year ago and have been using extract and playing with steeping grains. Just took the initial training wheels off the other week with my first couple of all grain brews. Purchased a Grainfather as looked like an easy entry into all grain...

    Ha ha - 'Brand' for my beers is No.10 - a reference to my English heratige and the fact that my house number is No.10. The cellar door is painted black as in 10 Downing St London and anyone who lived in the UK in the 80's should be able to recognize the image (or should I say spitting image:)
