Hi Dave,  So what new equipment did you just get?  I'm going to live a little vicariously through you since you've got new toys.  :D

Hello playground  8)

well I'm just waiting to move home in next month or 2 so I've not picked up any all grain equipment yet but thinking about s30 grainfather, all I've done is picked up a Coopers kit, fermenter and so on and all the bottling stuff, quality crown Capper (Doc) made in italy, so far I've brewed 2 coopers dark ale kits, take alook_

Nice Capper!  I just use a cheap "butterfly", hand-held capper as most of my bottles have swing tops or are 22 oz bombers.  Those grainfathers are sure nice!  Here in the States we have available the S40 which retails for $499 USD and then the G30 which is a beefy 220 volt system that retails for $999 USD.  Do they have different model numbers in the UK?

Either way.  I'm sure you'll be a happy camper!

I maybe got number wrong s30 lol, I think it G30 Grainfather / 30L they around £650 here but we have vat tax 20% with that, maybe more then $1000 after

Well seen a s40 and g40 grainfathers in videos, can't say that impressed but I don't know prices yet.

Hey guys . . . I'm back brewing again also after life got in the way.

I've done a few this summer, but deliberately decided not to brew my pumpkin back in August.  Waited until the first week of October so I can enjoy it with family who will be visiting from out of state and out of the country in November for the Thanksgiving holiday.
