    robobrew reliablility in 2019??

    I have been interested in a robobrew for a while, but always held back as I heard people having this problem or that. I live in Japan, and the seller is not an official seller so there is no warranty to speak of. And if something did go wrong it would all be out of my pocket, parts and shipping...

    What do you think happed to this ale?

    Yeah, I wish I still had the recipe. My brew book from two years ago has gone missing, I know it is some kind of ale. I`m guessing FG was reached, I kind of remember one of my brews stalled and I bottled it. Tell you what though it sure retains it`s head. wont be tipping the rest out. @mr. b...

    Kit + malt. correct proccess?

    Thanks guys, I had no idea, I thought the master malt kits were designed for extract brewing with a boil, add your own hops etc. I will go ahead with your advice, no boil except for a bit of orange/ corriander. and dry hop the hops. Sounds too easy. This might sound like a stupid question....I...

    Morgans Malt Extract

    my first extract a few months back was using morgans master malt, as far as all my (few) brews go, best thing since sliced bread. did you do a boil? if yes did you remove from the heat first before adding goo? very easy to scorch.
