I am new to homebrewing and just purchased an advanced mini home brewery off ebay (Item number: 260589553596). The brewery has been updated since the ebay picture. I brewed my first batch on Sunday and was far off my original gravity reading. I couldn't figure out how to use the new counterflow wort chiller, so I had to use my immersion wort chiller.
I am looking to meet other all grain brewers to help me how to brew on my setup. Below is a description of what I have so you know what we will be working with. If interested please send me an email and I will reply with my 630 phone number, I live in Addison.
