Thanks D. I like to plan ahead....just considering the options! AG is probably my destiny but atm while I brew in the house I feel excessive boiling isn't a good idea...I have a garage but it's in desperate need of a clear out..the GF ,although pricey, seems a more manageable solution to temp control, heating etc.

Cheers

Clint

That's what I do with my BM, but I don't adjust the hops quantities which I probably should??

How "in depth" is the tweaking/adjustments? Can you give me a basic example please?

Cheers

Not very, you'd typically just need to reduce the grain quantities by 10% or so. Beersmith or Brewers Friend would make it very easy to work out.

Yes, just use the GF website to calculate your mash and sparge water using your grain bill and you'll be flying. this book is a great place to start! Cheers

Mine was £3 +£3 postage if i remember correctly. Still worth the money though. Some decent recipes in there. Learning a lot from trying them out. Would recommend it.
