So while the CraftBeerPi isn't brewing it's giving me a hand with keeping my yeast starters at optimal temperature :) Stir plate + fish tank heater (controlled by CBPi) + WLP004 Irish Ale yeast...

    After some yeast strains....

    2L Containers that can handle boiling wort?

    I want to make a batch of starter wort and store them in 2L containers. While i have thought about using milk/softdrink bottles i would think that these would melt with boiling wort in them. Anyone got any suggestions?

    Best place for Grains on the Coast?

    Hey Lads, Just wondering where you source your grains from, is there a competitive LHBS for grain. I purchased my first lot from TUHB, and after paying realised it would have been cheaper to buy online and get it shipped. Cheers Dubz
