    Cost of the boil.

    Aye, Amazon prime delivery costs going up to get the free delivery that saves us hundreds/year. So we will just bite the bullet as it's still the most cost effective way to get many products to us. Good job I charge £5.00 per pint! :roll: Solar thermal sitting at 62*C - nearly mashing temp...
