Hello from Sunny Evesham!
« on: April 11, 2020, 08:21:38 AM »
Hey everyone,

My names Kev and I live over in Evesham.

I’ve only been brewing for a year but have managed to get over 20 brews under my belt with the Grainfather G30 and conical fermenter and rapidly planning more brews!

Hoping to learn lots as I continue my journey

Cheers
Kev

Hi Kev,

Welcome to the forum, always glad to grab new members especially in these unusual times.

We have a virtual meet this Thursday night if you want to come and meet a few of us, we love new members and will make you very welcome.

Cheers

Dan

Hi Kev welcome to the club, I too use a GF, love the thing, I ferment in the Mangrove Jacks SS FV in a temp controlled fridge. How do you find the GF.
Cheers
Stuart.

Hi Stuart,

Yes, I recognise your name from the GF users group on FB!

This is my first venture into brewing and love the GF and what it can do. A bit of me thinks in hindsight I could have saved a bit of money with the brewzilla or Klarstein or any of the other slightly more budget friendly options but there we go! I brew in the garage which is too far away for the bluetooth connection so I end up either staying out and pottering around the "brewery" or setting manual alarms on my phone either way!

I went in for the GF conical fermenter which is temp controlled so i'm very happy with that. The water round here is also very hard (according to my very cheap TDS meter) so I use an RO filter and add minerals myself.

Really want some other people to try my beer and see how i'm getting on.

Cheers!
Kev

Do me favour just drop me a message via our page here https://www.facebook.com/worcshomebrewclub/ and then I can make sure I am adding the right person.
