  • Got a couple of 33 litre stainless steel pots off ebay (German supplier, well worth a look) as fermentors; they're still a bit leaky in terms of CO2 release, but otherwise ok, surprisingly cheap for this type of item (around £35-40 including p&p), and allow me to brew 27 litres/6 imperial gallons/7 US gallons. A friend has given me a 2.5kW, 40 litre "Brunlec" boiler on semi-permanent loan; it's as old as the hills, but works splendidly. I've knocked out two brews so far, typically taking 3 hours from filling up the boiler to finishing the clean up.
  • #3 will be either a session bitter or a pale ale (a bit of Tim Taylor Landlord stylee wouldn't go amiss), but its timing depends on whether Eamonn (a friend and drinking companion) remembers to hop-shop for me in Barnstaple.
  • #1: IPA (OG 1058)
    #2: Stout (OG 1072)
