    I Nead An Immersion Heater

    Thanks Batz. In that case that could be my next addition to the brewery if I can find one. I dealt with Tobins before in Sydney and I was very happy with the price and quick service with my fridge thermostat. Hum, I might just have to think of a suitable thermostat to control the immersion...

    Racking And Bulk Priming

    To date I put dowm 3 kit brews only and have just started to taste the fruit of my labour from the first batch. The results are better than expectations as compared to the last Brigallow kit that I tried some years ago. The path to enlightenment is often difficult but I feel that I should...
