    Whirlpool/mixing while cooling using a power drill

    I'm looking at using a power drill to create a whirlpool for hopping, and for stirring my wort whilst I'm immersion chilling. Seems it will cool quicker if the wort is being mixed at the same time, and it's easier to attach something to a power drill rather than using my paddle by hand. What...

    Cheapest overall online retailer for ingredients?

    There are a hell of a lot of retailers online to buy grains, hops, and yeast from. Currently I am using GetErBrewed.com because they have quite a useful Build Your Own All Grain Recipe creator. Their prices seem to be on the cheaper side of things. I don't necessarily want to buy in bulk yet as...

    Back after over a year of not brewing

    Hello all! I got into homebrewing back in 2016 with extract brews in a 15L pot on the stove. I then built myself a cooler box mash tun and did a few all grain brews. However I was really put off with the hobby since I lived in a small flat and it really used to stress me out. However, I'm now...

    Peco boiler BIAG BeerSmith profile

    I recently bought myself a 32L Peco boiler so I'm able to increase the size of my brews, from the 15L cooking pot I was using on the stove. I'm also considering dumping the cooler box mash tun and just doing a BIAG brew since it seems to be so much easier. What mash tun volume, weight etc do...
