Re: Grainfather first brew - bit of a disaster

After switching from a 3 vessel system to the grainfather I only have one criticism. That filter. I use a hop spider but still have issues with the filter blocking. It would be the only reason why I would sell my gf. The wort doesn’t seem as clear as it did with the 3v system either

Re: Air lock bubbling

I was going to ask the same question here. I am doing my final extract kit before moving to AG and decided to rehydrate my yeast before pitching it. My beer has been in the FV for nearly 3 weeks now and it's still bubbling. (Approx 1 every 30-40 seconds). I have not taken a gravity reading yet as I ...

I recently bought myself the kit needed to start all grain brewing. I got it from a guy who had all the intentions of brewing but never did. Luckily for me it's all brand new and still in its original wrapping !! Included in the kit is an immersion cooler and a 16 plate chiller. Being a newbie to br...
