Just a wilkinsons kit i think, proof of concept sort of thing to the people i am now living with as they have no experience of brewing yet.

My main issue will be fermentation temperature control as it will have to be done in my room and the temperature in here changes massively this time of year

I've been having great success with a simple DIY bain marie. Once dialled in it's kept my FV at a steady 19C for 3 weeks in subarctic conditions (unheated utility room) with no adjustment after about day 2, but it's not everyone's cup of tea.

Cheers Chippy (Sorry I missed your post earlier0

@Brewski: Do you basically mean a bucket/tub/bowl of water with the heater in it?

@BrotherMalice Yes, exactly that. After the initial faffing around (due to my own inexperience) it's been fantastic.
