    an American in France looking to get back into it

    Sorry for kicking a year old topic, but I'm also interested in the Brewtaurus gear. Specific the K70L kettle and PF55L Conical fermenter. I'm still hestitant because I read so few reviews. Any more people with Brewtaurus experiences?

    Trappist rochefort 8 recipe

    Bart from the Netherlands

    Hello from the southern part of the Netherlands (Eindhoven area). My first brew was 7 years ago, a liquid malt 'brew' which I didn't like that much. In the next 5 years that followed I didn't brew anything until the big C popped up. I picked up the hobby again but this time all grain only. I...
