Just brewed this beer last Sunday and there's plenty of bubbling going on in the fermentation
chamber!One question: This is only my second partial mash and I'm not yet skilled at getting
the temps abs...

Bpm, where do you get supplies in Switzerland? I moved here from California and would like to
begin brewing again. Do you know a good place for equipment/other supplies? I'm in the French

I'm getting ready to try my hand at the partial mash technique (all extract until now) and I'm
