Advice on equipment/brews


  • For extract you need a means of boiling and chilling the wort. A large stockpot will do, but it's awkward. Personally I'd jump straight to getting a boiler and chiller, assuming you have outside space to brew in. Partial mashes you can do in a stockpot, you just need some muslin or cheesecloth for straining the wort.

    Dry hopping can be done by just throwing the hops in a week before bottling. Additional flavours I would add to the fermenter with the yeast for maximum infusion time. I'd usually give whatever it is a quick boil in a small amount of water before throwing it in.
