Hi from Canberra - Australia

HI All,

Just purchased a 20l Braumeister and looking forward to picking it up tomorrow.
It's a little bit of a project that a mate and I are getting ourselves into here, we've both dabbled in basic homebrew but first time in AG.
Will be looking over the board looking for tips & tricks and anything recommended to hopefully make it as easy as possible. Expecting a few hiccups along the way but that'll be half the fun.

Will post more once I have a good look around.

Welcome, depending on what style of beer you enjoy, one of the easiest brews to get started with is a SMASH (Single Malt, single Hop), single mash schedule at 67C, hop additions at beginning of the boil and at 15 mins, so you have less to worry about whilst you learn how to use the BM. Ferment with dried (or liquid) ale yeast at 19C.

You can't fail to make good beer :D

Thanks BrauTim - Spent probably an hour with Steve and Colin from Brew Your Own who were great in helping me out and giving me a tour of their shop. Will definitely be looking at a SMASH to start with, keep things simple and work my way up to the more complex brews later. Was pleasantly surprised to see it was a 2015 model also, as I was expecting remaining 2014 stock so happy days.
