Hello from Smyrna, home of the Braves.

I’ve been a part of the home brew community for years… making empties. Recently I took a class at Schoolhouse Brewing. It was fantastic.

In class we used a grainfather system… so perhaps I’m spoiled. I don’t want to go through the progression of buying large pots and pans… so my next task is sorting between grainfather, klarstein, foundry, … open to suggestions and advice.

More generally… I have nothing. So my goal is to put together my kit with things I won’t want to replace 4 times between now and Christmas.

Welcome to the forum and the hobby. I’m not familiar with any of that equipment so I can’t help you there. I have an electric automated system, and a very plain natural gas setup as well.

What kind of beers are you into?
