    Hi Guys,

    Started brewing about 6 months ago now. Something i've put off for years, and now wish i'd got into sooner.

    Kegging from the get go.
    I've done a few 5L all grain batched on the stove that I thought were the best beers i've ever had. I've mostly been an aussie lager imbiber but these AG brews are something else.
    Tried a 23L extract kit that was a failure.. then I learned about temp control, i'm in SW NSW at the moment so 35-40C days play havoc, no matter ow dark you room is. I slipped a fermentasaurus into a fridge with an inkbird attached and tried another extract kit, dry hopped it and it was great beer. Bit of an afteretaste if you drank 3 or more schooners though.
    I can see the bottom line here is get into AG and stick with it. I'm tossing around which way to go, as I have a business that could benefit from an on-site micro brewpub.. real micro like 200L. At first, I was thinking jump on a single vessle to learn the way (and while I have 2 babies and a 6 y/o terrorising me), then move onto a 3VHerms.. don't know.. still figuring that one out.
    In the meantime i'm about to drop a White IPA AGK into the 'saurus from All in brewing.. see how it goes compared to the can kits.

    Anyways thanks for having me on here, already learned a pant load on these forums. Hopefully one day I'll show off my brewpub to y'all.

    Greetings Noodle, SVB's are cheap enough, just start off with one of those first before going into a bigger system.
