All about HERMS brewing and craft brewing in general

Welcome to my brewery

Last Updated on July 21st, 2010 - I'm currently (slowly) overhauling this site so please come back frequently.

This site is all about the equipment I use to brew my own beer, and how I use it. My brewery is a Heat Exchanged Recirculating Mash System. That means it's a bit different to the equipment the majority of homebrewers in the UK use to brew their beer. The process is the same but the equipment gives more control over critical temperatures.

I can hear the sceptics running for their pitch-forks as I contemplate typing this.... so I'm just going to say it. Since building this system I've heard many people jump on their soap boxes preaching that, "You can brew excellent beer in plastic buckets". That's perfectly true but the quality of my beer has improved dramatically since I built this system. There, I've said it. Burn the heretic!

If there's anything you want to see on this site that isn't currently here or if you want to ask me a question about my brewery or brewing in general just click on my ugly mug on the right to send me a mail.
