    Induction brewing... anyone doing it? What induction element do you use.

    Mangrove Jack's craft series worth the extra $$$?

    Found this thread after searching, not sure if anyone else has used the "Robbers Gold" kit yet? I had a mate's bbq to make some beer for so splashed out on the box, but it turned out incredibly bitter. Im not sure that its supposed to be this bitter, it even leaves a "taste" in your throat...
