Re: Ordered a Brewie! Have any good recepies?

Really sorry about the delay, just finding the time lately has been hard, now you can see why I need an automated machine!! So... Does it clean it' self? Yes it does, but it doesn't mean it's totally hands off like a dishwasher. At the end of the brew, once it's done, I usually just run the short cl...

Looks like a twin tub washing machine!
Exactly what I thought! Most of my mates haven't a clue what that or a mangle is though 😆

Re: Ordered a Brewie! Have any good recepies?

I've been really busy, but still I've had time to brew a Pilsner (now sat in the larger fridge, 9 weeks to go), a brown ale and my first ever chocolate porter (with fresh coffee). That was all in week one. I managed to do an unboxing video for you all too: https://youtu.be/6x-c9DLW6BY (subscribe and...

When does it arrive?
They said end of April, but I'm not holding my breath :D

I bought a vacuum sealer and sealed up the kilo of Challenger in 100 gram bags, still to do the Citra. Saved a stack!! The Citra smells amazing! 8)

Re: Ordered a Brewie! Have any good recepies?

Why ask for brew recipes when they are abundant and easy to look up if you enjoy that process more than brewing itself? I'm BIAB, my efficiencies aren't the same as your GF unfortunately. This affects the rest of the recipe. I do find BeerSmith is a good tool though if you haven't used it? I was wo...

Re: Ordered a Brewie! Have any good recepies?

Great to have all your feedback, thanks! Time is my most valuable asset. I enjoy crafting a recipe, I can literally spend hours on it. Then I get all my gear together, excitedly cleaning it all. I'm chuffed if I hit my target temps that BeerSmith suggests when I get to mash, but by the time my wort ...

Re: Ordered a Brewie! Have any good recepies?

Guess we live in a trustless world. I have no links to Brewie, and they have no UK supplier as yet, so I can't see a way I'd get a back hander. Was everyone as suspicious of Grain Father and others when they came out, or is this a totally new thing? I'm trying to work out of its the cost that puts e...

Re: Ordered a Brewie! Have any good recepies?

8) that's cool.

So, back to the original topic, anyone have any good recepies? The Brewie is so new I was wondering if anyone has tried a nice IPA/APA?

Re: Ordered a Brewie! Have any good recepies?

As a general comment, I'd say that people should be very careful of taking forum posts which include links to commercial websites at face value. Particularly if they are from members who haven't been around very long. Ha, I've been a member for years and bought and sold on here! This is a genuine r...

Re: Ordered a Brewie! Have any good recepies?

I work it out like this... I enjoy a good meal, but who enjoys washing up? There once was a time without dishwashers, washing machines and microwaves. Now you can have a brewmister, grain father or brewie. Varying costs, but varying amounts of input involved! Now I can craft a beer, spending the tim...

Ordered a Brewie! Have any good recepies?

A bunch of local mates pitched in and ordered a Brewie (www.brewie.org). It's the new, improved version. Roughly £475 each between 4 of us. I'm the lucky one who gets it in my garage :D Anyone else have one? Any good recepies you've found? I had a chat to the local home brew store and they're willin...
