    The new Robobrew and Brewster Beacon setups look great quality and value for money.
    The main reason I went for the GF was the CF chiller. It really is excellent. Even in the summer the wort's ready to go into the fermenter in a couple of minutes.
    I like the connect part, but the chiller is it's main draw for me.

    Married men do live longer than single men. Probably due to all the good advice they get every day!

    Ha! Tingle is the word we’re after here! Lol!

    Chilli stout sounds bang on to be fair. We all know chocolate cake with chilli is fine dining haute cuisine worthy so a dark rich stout/porter with chilli in would pair up nice me thinks!

    It sounds proper...I wouldn't put chilli with cherry though. Chilli and chocolate definitely. Chocolate and cherry definitely.
