Hi everyone! I'm finally about to move to somewhere with enough room to brew again! I've been two years out of the loop but it's time for me to finally get back to it. From my previous stint as a home brewer I have a cooler mash tun with sparge arm, and all the post boil kit required to make beer. The only thing I'm missing is a kettle that will double as HLT and boiler. I made my own one previously from Tesco kettle elements and a big bucket - but it always felt a little dodgy as I could never get the covers on the connections quite right and open elements scared me a bit! Also - I quite like the idea of finding something electric and shiny (means if I ever have to move to the garage I don't have to then get a burner etc.) With Santa's visit just around the corner - budget isn't too much of a concern for me but sub ÃÂ£150/ÃÂ£200 would be ideal. I'm not keen on something like the ACE brew systems/grainfather etc. as I like to keep my method a bit closer to the traditional 3 vessel where possible. That being said the kettle will be doubling as HLT so i envision brew day looking like Kettle heating strike water on counter --> gravity feed into mash tun on chair --> Gravity feed and sparge into FV on the floor --> swap kettle and FV to gravity feed into kettle again --> Kettle back up onto the side for the boil. Obviously if I do some no sparge beers then I'll just feed straight from mash tun into kettle then put it back up on the side. I plan to brew up to 5 gal brews as I'm looking to pick up cornys in the not too distant future (the PTSD of bottling still lives with me) and I can't ever see myself needing more than a corny worth of beer for the forseeable future. Hopefully I've given you just enough (and not way too much) info to help me out!
