Hello from Ireland

Unread postby johnrm » Wed Dec 10, 2014 8:19 am

Hello,
I have my first brew down in my BM20, looking forward to tasting this and getting on a few more.
Started with a few kits, moved to brewing AG on plastic for about 4 years.

Welcome to the forum.

What are your thoughts of your first brew on the BM.
I would imagine the beer will be of much better quality compared to kits.

:cheers:
The worst thing that can happen if I die is that my wife will sell all my brewing equipment for what I told her I paid for it

Thanks.
Its only a week and a half in primary, but the mash, boil and cool were fine. Sparging, if you're doing this requires extra equipment.
I was doing AG on a 3v plastic system, occasional kits now for Homebrew demos.

Hi johnrm - another BM owner from Ireland here. Where are you located? There is some really great knowledge on the forum about the BM.

I'm in Midleton, Cork. The Jameson distillery is a 10 min walk away.
Some mornings, I stick my nose out the front door and I can smell the mash!
I'm a member of the National Homebrew Club (NHC) and the Rebel Brewers.
Yes, the homebrew scene is getting busy here, plus there is a rising number of Micro breweries.
The NHC is holding its third annual National Brewing Competition in Feb/Mar 2015, so looking to get a few news on for that. All good fun!
Looking forward to having a good read through the forum.
Thanks for the welcome!

Hi John,

You'll probably recognise me from the NHC forum. I'm up in Kildare. Brewed 5 or 6 times now on the 20L Braumeister. Great bit of kit. If you use Beersmith, check out some of Dicko's posts on this forum for setting up the parameters for the Braumeister (things like evaporation rate, grain absorption and losses). All very handy for predicting how it will behave.

Hey Dr J,
Good to see a familiar name here.
I'm planning some brews in the next few weeks for the National comp.
I use Beersmith, but just ran a simple Weiss first time out. I will look for that detail for BeerSmith, thanks.
