Default New To The Home Brew

Hello!!

I’m fairly new to home brewing and to date have made half a dozen ‘add water and stir’ kits and have also had a couple of sessions at a nearby Home brew shop where I have learnt to mash, sparge, lauter, boil and ferment.

I’m about to launch myself into an all in one brewing system (mainly due to its small footprint and apparent ease of use) but am very keen to learn and develop my new found hobby.

This forum seems full of good ideas and debate and I hope it will become a good source of help as I look to develop my interest.

Cheers

Andy

Ps, so new I’ve just realised the typo in the title! Please forgive my fat fingers.

Welcome to the forum.

The all in one systems are very popular for a number of reasons, including the ones you mention, and the fact they seem to be getting ever cheaper. We have a number of threads on the various ones. Have you bought your system yet? or know which one your interested in?

Thanks guys! I bought a system from Beer Torrent which is ,I think, the system branded as Ace/ Klarstein elsewhere. The price was good for a start- up system and I’m looking forward to getting brewing. The first attempt will be a brew loosely based on the Hopwired IPA.

The company are local to me so I’m sure I will be drawing on their experience as I go along!

Cheers

Andy

My first Brew Day looms ever closer. I’ve bought the equipment, have had the recipe prepared and now I just need to launch myself into it. Sunday 10th is indeed Beer Day. If anyone is interested in how an utter beginner gets on then please check in afterwards and I will let you know how it goes!!

I think we had a demo of this equipment at the home brew festival this year and it looked very good.

Good luck with your first brew day. Allow plenty of time and do not rush and all will be fine. AG is quite forgiving.
