    American equivalents

    I have a homebrew book which is American. In a number of recipes they call for crystal 15 degree and crystal 40 degree. I have searched various websites like TMM etc but it's not obvious what the UK equivalent would be. Any ideas from the hive mind would be gratefully received

    Induction hob

    Hi I'm looking at a 20/25l stove top pot. The new malt Miller ones look of interest. One avenue is to use a portable induction burner. However they all state max pot size 28cm. Does anyone use an induction burner with a pot larger than the burner? If so is it still effective
