    A quick hello, thanks for having what looks like an open and v.helpful forum.

    Lots to learn and work back through as I get more into this game.

    I've got about 4 years of kit brews behind me, not really taking things that seriously.... My best kit result was an Imperial Stout kit from lovebrewing... I went all in with the oak chunks, a loooong ferment and condition. It didn't taste like any imperial stout I've ever had but it still was pretty good.

    I finally bought myself both a 100L pot, gas burner and a 35L urn to get into grain (I dare say there's possibility of 3 step all grain with a mash-tun, but one step at a time).

    I've got 2 brews of BIAB done over the last month or so - Ive not yet tried the outcome. Enjoyed the longer and more complex brew days and keen to get into this further, and here I am.

    Welcome Andy. Where in South Wales are you? If it's anywhere near Cardiff or Newport then look for the Rebel Homebrew club on Facebook. We meet regularly at Tiny Rebel in Cardiff or the brewery in Rogerstone

    Thanks the warm welcome all. Rod - it is indeed a 100L stockpot - the thing is huge. I'm only likley to be doing 23L brews for a while but it has plenty of headroom and hopefully if I nail a good recipie and technique that works i can up to brewing for 2 x fermentor batches.

    Richard- i'll be sure to check that group out.. I live about 10mins drive from the Brewery and call in there fairly regularly

    I never knew there was a homebrew club at TR. I am in Caerphilly and just getting back into brewing so that's interesting to know- thanks!
