    Hi I'm new to beer brewing & have got close to zero knowledge in fact last time I attempt to brew beer there where explosions going on in our laundry late at night and never went back. I'm back for another go though and found this site on my searches....just wish there was easy accessible info online when I first started out 25 years ago.

    Thanks Grott id be happy with anything I can drink as a start mate. something along the lines of super dry or new would be awesome!
    I have a still and make a lot of hard liquor so am up to speed with sterilization and temperature maintenance and brewing my own beer would be icing on the cake.

    Get rid of the still and enjoy drinking beautifull tasty beer mate.
    I sold my 80 litre reflux still plus all the shit that went with it a couple of years ago and got into kegging with my kit brews and am loving life without spirits. Like durries but.
