"Having now bought BeerSmith 2 I have to agree - it is both awesome but also a little daunting! I'm struggling to understand the various terms, abbreviations and how to use them. Where to get information such as "mash tun specific…"
"I paid for beersmith and its worth every penny. Real easy to build recipes on, calculators are robust, ingredients are current (you can also add all gladfields malts with a plugin from the Gladfields website). Useful mash and boil timers.

Hi jamis, Craftbrewer well worth a visit. Was welcomed by the guys and shown around. Ross was away at the time. They have moved to a new location a couple of weeks ago and are setting up as a Brew on the premises type set up.
Here's the info I got in an email from them.
"CraftBrewer are pleased to announce we have just acquired Bacchus Brewing, Australia''s only All Grain "Brew On Premise" Brewery.
As a result, we will be moving the 2 operations under one roof from the start of next month. Our new address will be 1 Christine Place, Capalaba, Qld. The brew shop will be smack in the middle of the brewery, so customers can view everything going on.
For those interested The new brewery has 6 x steam jacketed kettles with individual mash tuns. Batch sizes 5 x 50L & 1 x 120L. The power plant will allow us to add a further 500L kettle for future growth. We also have a semi automated bottling plant capable of botting 50L in approx 20 minutes."
I bought a few fittings off a guy that was selling 10litre kegs on TradeMe. I bought one off him and wish I'd bought a few more now, they're a really handy size and you don't see them very often. Anyway I bought a few spare posts off him. What is it you are after, I may be able to help?
