Lots of new parts equals lots of hiccups I've found. This was the third beer I've done with this system, about to brew the 5th this weekend.

This was a Robust Porter that's currently conditioning on 2kg of raspberries. There's a few pics that I missed on the Porter brew but took the photos again on the next day hence a few pics of the wort being quite light.

I'll shut up now and get on with it.

Damn you Glen. That setup of yours is way too pretty. I hereby confiscate your brewery under the misuse of Stainless Steel act (1855) with the power vested in the Crown Appointed Brewing Police. I'm sorry mate, there is nothing I can do.

I don't think I've ever had more than two running at a time.

Usually only have one burner going at once but will occasionally have two.

Weekend before last when it was REAL hot and humid there was condensation all over the bottle and the bottle was sitting in a pool from the water dripping off. Never had one freeze though.

With those four ring burners in one brewday you can kiss goodbye to half a tank of gas, ouch.

And Joking, you and the Brew-lice will have to fight me to the grave to get this one.

Your setup is nothing short of amazing, great stuff. Love the hop bag, got to give that a try.

Yeah do it! It's hard to see from that photo but it's a real big bag, as big as I could make it without touching the bottom or sides of the kettle. I stole the idea from some American brewer :-P
