    Fermentasaurus, Fermzilla or Fast Ferment. Which to buy?

    Not sure I'd agree. They appear to have sold thousands of units in Europe and whilst the number of failures you see online is a concern, you don't hear about all of the happy customers. The majority of the failures I've seen on the Fermzilla user's Facebook group appear to be user error. (People...

    beer gas

    That's really expensive. I'd be looking for somewhere that offers CO2 for cheaper than that.

    Get brewing people, our hop industry needs us

    They don't. They've just learned the buzzwords to use when describing their hops. I think that you could grow Citra here and it would taste like mud.

    Will a fermzilla fit in a fridge

    This is really cool to know. Think I may pull the trigger on this basis. Love the Fermzilla I have and looking to get a second.

    Barring one or two varieties, I just don't find British hops to have desirable characteristics for my tastes. I really like EKG and Challenger and that's about it.

    Ball Lock Post Query

    One of mine from Brewkegtap has the double o-ring. I guessed it was just for a better deal.

    Craig tube suspended

    I feel bad for him, but if he's not backed up his stuff he's mental. I used to really enjoy his videos but the constant being on the defensive about being a kit brewer became tiresome. I hope he gets it sorted out because a lot of new brewers find his stuff really accessible.

    Mods to a 40L Buffalo boiler

    I'm keen to get a boiler that won't need constant stirring during the ramp up. The Peco suits my needs very well, but the element requires constant stirring during the ramp up or you get scorching. It's a ballache being stuck to stirring for this period. Any recommendations?

    Mods to a 40L Buffalo boiler

    Nice. Seems like a really simple fix. How do they cope when ramping up to a boil? Require constant stirring to prevent scorching or is the element a low watt density?

    Mods to a 40L Buffalo boiler

    Can you get a rolling boil on these without modifying the electrics?

    Fermentasaurus, Fermzilla or Fast Ferment. Which to buy?

    I've been hanging fire on picking up another fermenter to go with my Fermzilla but the Snub Nose and Fermenter King Jnr still don't appear to readily available in the UK market. Shame. Think I'll pull the trigger on the Fermzilla all-rounder.

    Mango ipa

    How much Mango Pulp did you use, and how did you measure the sugar contribution?

    Another malt supplier

    That's nice. Would be cool to have the option if it's viable for them.
