    80L/100L Stock Pot

    Hi everyone, Looking online, all the home-brew shops are sold out of large stock pots. I've messaged Mr Lard to ask when he will have some back in. I also tried to email Bergland but the email bounced back so I assume they aren't trading any more. If anyone happens to see any new pots at a...

    Leaf hop whirlpool

    Quick question, I started with whole hops and a bazooka, then for the last few years gone to pellets, a good whirlpool and no filter.

    Sad to hear of Roger’s passing. He completely transformed St Austell brewery over the years. When I lived in Cornwall and started homebrewing I got in touch with him to ask about their processes and he was only too happy to lend some advice. I...

    I’ve been looking into cold brew coffee and serving it on nitro. The reason? I’m going to cut back on the beer to try and trim down a bit and want to make something with very little carbohydrate in it to have on an evening. So my question is, what have you brewed that’s not carby and...

    Good evening all, As I type this my other half has her eyes shut nestled up next to me. She’s gorgeous... and then it starts ashock1 The problem is that I’ve always been a poor sleeper.
