Hi Tsar

I use gas but I've seen threads where guys have bought cheap kettles and used the elements from those, I also saw a thread recently where a guy bought an element that he formed to his kettle shape :think: It may not have been on here, if I can find it I'll post a link. Do a search on electric Biab.

Are you looking to buy from anywhere ??

:luck:

Yeasty

Hi Yeasty,

I've a 30L kettle and I'm waiting for 50L one, and that's exactly my idea. I'm looking to buy from anywhere, as long as the shipping isn't more expensive than the element itself :P

Thanks

Hello, I'm in Puglia, the heel of Italy. I'm kit brewing at the moment (and really enjoying it), but intend to get the equipment sorted for BIAB sometime this year. I thought I was close, but the place I was going to get my ingredients from only sells unmilled grain, so unless I can find somewhere that sells milled grain, I'm going to have to research milling, save up & buy a mill, etc.. before things progress.

Anyway, I thought I'd check in and say thanks for the wealth of information on the site. I'm particularly keen on getting some recipes bookmarked. Summer Ales now, and Porters for winter are my thing (not that they're easy to find around here), but having a read up on here I finding myself wanting to investigate Wheat Beers, Bocks, APAs, all sorts....

Oh, and my goal is to make beer off-grid. So, wood fired, captured and cleaned water, home-grown hops & home-malted grains, etc..

Hi! I'm Ionut, born and raised in a wine country (Romania), but this can't stop me to enjoy a good homebrew.

Hi Tsar, go to the Home Brew Forum - there's a 'How To' guide on there for installing cheap kettle elements into your boiler. And I must learn how to do links...

Hi,

Name is Tony, I live near Northants in the UK, and am heavily committed to BIAB, I use a modified Burco 30l, and chill using both ice bath and no chill. The Missus made me a couple lof voile bags, perfect, and extremely tough.

I am hoping to move to Sicily in the next 6 months so would love to hear from any Home Brewers over there. I understand Mr Malt is the main supplier of grain and equipment, but would appreciate any advice

I mostly brew dark Stouts and Porters, and am trying to perfect my Hobgoblin clone, but willing to try my hand at anything new.

Take care fellow HomeBrewers

Hi Yettiman

Nice to hear from a fellow Brit. Your Hobgoblin clone project sounds interesting as I am a fan of that brew myself. How do you fancy starting a thread and perhaps researching recipes with a view to a bottle swap ?

I need a project to kick me up the arse as I haven't brewed for eons.. :sad:

Any other fellow Brit Biabrrrs up for it.

:salute:

Yeasty

Hi Yeasty and Yettiman
I brewed a clone of Hobgoblin last year which was a good beer but I'm not sure how close to the original it was. I would also be interested in joining in the project. Keep us posted and I will try and get "Hobblin' Goblin" recipe entered into BIABicus.

I like the sound of this!

I have done a few Bitters now, and they all ended up really good. The problem I have is it takes about 6 months before they get to their peak. :shock:
Pendle witch, Tribute, Landlord - all good but only after very long conditioning. I did Hashies Old Speckled Hen about 6 weeks ago and it is not good yet.
I guess I am going to have to wait until summer :sad:

I would like to see not only how other brewers beers compare, but also how drinkable they are at certain times. Count me in!

Nice to see there is some interest in Hobgoblin. I'll not start a new thread yet until we hear from Yettiman as I don't want to hijack his project. So get researching guys.

:thumbs:

Hi Yeasty,

The Hobgoblin clone was a mixed success. A nice/good beer with some hidden malty complexity to it, great colour, crystal clear (after 2 months in the bottle, but it lost head very quickly and was a little light in mouth feel.

Would love to be part of a separate HG thread.

I will get the BIABacus recipe ready for the HG thread.

Looking forward to comparing notes

I have took the liberty of starting a new thread on the hobgoblin clone here.
I presume myself, Yeasty, Adman, and Yettiman are still interested?

Hi I'm Jube,

I am an expat living in Pécs, Hungary.
I have a few 3V full grain brews to my name but they take a long time.

2 weeks ago brewed 70lt Saison starting in morning and finishing around midnight. 2 different vessels one using BIAB and other with sparge, etc. Am interested in how both finished beers turn out.

Looking at starting a homebrew club in the area...if anyone is interested from around here.

Cheers

Hi Balli,

I know it's been rather a long time since your post but, until recently I lived near Llantrisant, (Llanharan) but have now moved to Chepstow. It's a pity I didn't see your post sooner as it would be good to see another BIABer's brewday.

Hope your first batch went well, though that's probably long gone by now!

Dave

Hi Dennis, it's good to have you on board. :thumbs:

We met at the Home Brew Festival earlier this year so now I've met 2 other brewers on this forum! That's almost a crowd...

Anyway, let us know how you find the switch from 3V to Biab.
