The next one's on Tuesday 9th @ 7pm - See you there if you can make it! :)
I'll be there!

Braumeister short malt pipe

Has anyone got a spare malt pipe for a 20l braumeister they might want to sell? Preferably a short one as I am looking to brew some smaller batches.

9 litre corny keg

Torrified wheat

How many people out there add torrified wheat to their brews? Most recipes you find in books/online don't have torrified wheat in them, what are peoples thoughts?
