Nice photos, always great to see other peoples setups.

I 've been looking at your setup and I'm thinking of moving to something very similar.

I have a couple of questions:
Do you split you wort across 2 pots for a full wort boil?
How do you chill?

Thanks for the reply, very helpful.

I'm gonna buy a new chilli bin (approx 24L) and build a manifold ready for for my first all grain batch.

I'm hoping to make something dark, malty & smooth. Not sure exactly what yet.

Any other thoughts or tips you have will be much appreciated.

hey ed thanks for the beers on sunday. had the stout last night, it was superb, really smooth and roasty. how did you get it so smooth? is it an oatmeal stout? what yeast did you use?

haha sweetas about the phone.

you're right about the wheat beer, it's colour and hefty body are a result of using marris otter and crystal malt as opposed to say pils and carapils, probably what i'd use now. the yeast is awesome, really bananaery. it was fermented in the middle of summer and just about blew the lid off the fermenter! was worried i'd overcooked it a bit and would end up with nasty fusels, but it seems to have come out fine. do you prefer warm ferments in your wheat beers or the clove like cooler ones?

yeah i like that stout too - it's actually quite strong (o.g. 1062 i think) and has a nice sweetness to offset the roasty flavours. i used sauvin hops in it (before i read somewhere they taste horrible with dark malts!) and i love the flavour of them! was trying to get a smooth nz style stout, probably more like yours, but it is nice none the less.

tried the syringe method last night with a stout - worked brilliantly

that would be weird getting a syringe with a beer - what is it supposed to mean? you take your beer intravenously?!

You still need to send me your address for a bottle of the Stout, Ed?
