    Experiment in reducing cold break for those without chillers

    Hi guys, I have done 3 brews in the last couple of weeks and tried something new.

    Hi fellow brewers

    Hi fellow brewers. I am back into home brewing after a gap of over 20 years baring the odd ginger beer plant for the kids. I used to brew from all grain recipes in the past and am putting my foot back into the water using kits at the moment as my evil wife threw all my equipment out years ago...
