Good onya Jethro! Just getting into AG myself and I have to say that the difference is amazing.

What did you choose for the big AG #1?

Welcome to AG, Jethro!

Key to brewing and maintaining connubial bliss: buy a camp burner and 9Kg propane bottle and brew in the shed, not kitchen :)

And it will take you a while to refine the system and know your efficiency etc. AG always does take hours, though.

I just went for a pils I boiled in a 55 litre keg in the back pergola with a three burner boiled for 1 1/2 hours and boiled of 12 litres (bit more than I expected) then chilled with a immersion chiller (3/8 copper coil) 20 minutes. The time factor for me was batch sparging. and filtering water with a jug. I have picked up some areas where I can improve next time around but I guess I had already had a head start by advice to this forum. Its a ripper
Cheers guys Im of for a beer Jethro
:rolleyes: :D
