Just watch those 1st places come rolling in.

You won't regret it mate. It's the next step. I validate that sort of thing with. I work hard. And I enjoy my hobbies. And if I'm really into something then an investment like that is worth it.

Obviously, a nice, shiny and fairly expensive container will add a unique and valuable taste to the end product...

Even SWMBO will see through "needing a sparge heater"
It is said that all anger from your partner is dispelled when they see your beaming smile as you play with your nice shiny toys, that and when they realise it keeps you out of the house and making a mess in said house for a few hours...

Maiden voyage is Wednesday morning, a Belgian dubbel mash kit that I got free with it. There's a good chance I'll balls it up somehow so I don't want to risk 20 quids worth of hops, the NEIPA will have to wait till next time. This'll be my first brew in months
