    Keg King's 3V HERMS Brewery

    Wondering if anyone has any experience with this brewery setup from Keg King? Looks to be good value for what it is, but this is not an area I'm familiar with as a BIAB guy. http://kegking.com.au/magento/3-vessel-recirculating-herms-brewery-kit-assembled.html If there's a thread already on...

    Herms coil vs immersion chiller where to use my 18m coil

    Hi guys, I've been looking at buying some annealed copper to make a wort chiller and 18m (1/2") is the best value (I'll call around the air conditioning places before committing to the big green shed). I like the idea of future proofing my brewery for potential upgrades the best I can so I...

    Brewing Systems: BIAB, 2V, 3V, BM etc.

    So, I'm interested in upgrading from my 70l BIAB system. Homebrew is easily my biggest hobby and passion in life, has been for a couple of years now, and I'm only getting more obsessed with time. I've read up a bit on 3V RIMS (which I'm keen on), 3V HERMS (which I'm not so keen on) and then...
