Hello from Creston, BC

Post #1 by pedgaro » 6 months ago

I’ve been kegging Brewhouse IPA kits for years now but decided to get into all grain electric brewing last winter. I built the controller following the electricbrewery.com guide and watching numerous youtube videos on making the rest of the equipment. I’ve made four batches now and still working some bugs out of the equipment as well as operator errors. Every batch so far is much better than what I had been drinking, there is no going back to kits.

Glad to hear there is another home brewer in Creston. I do all grains,10 gal at a time. I have 18 hops bines growing and a good supply of hops from last year. We should get together.
Some mistakes are too much fun to only make once.

I went to my local wine shop to buy a hydromter and saw Brewhouse Kits. $61.00!!! When I used to make them they were $25.

I'd like to get together, tried to send you a PM a few days ago but it didn't show up in my sent messages, messaged the administrator but no response.
