new homebrew goodies

2 replacement stock pots purchased from ebay (compass090) 1x 20L and 1x 15L, both for less than £30.

And made a home-made diy immersion chiller (£19.99 for 10m 8mm copper tubing from B&Q). The copper tubing is measured as outside diameter so it might work well to just stick syphon tube over the end). I was surprised how easy it was to bend the copper tube, and with a few cable ties it's not too bad.

Order placed for more homebrew ingredients, a few adjustments:
  • switching to spary malt instead of liquid malt extract
  • cutitng the Munich down by 50%
  • increasing Crystal by 50%

After 3 weeks of conditioning the last brew is shaping up to be quite drinkable.
