    I know Fuggle about hops I haven't tried (tee-hee) so I'll have to read a bit. Heard about it before though.

    I'm still on my idea of a "CheapFather". Urn with a hot water pump, sommer 12V, some tubing and an STC-1000 and you're there.

    OK so the new Grainfather G70 has been announced, and release date is set for early next year. Price? US$1,800. That's just insane.
