    Great brew system

    Posted by Graham H. on Apr 12th 2017

    I have been looking for the next step in my brewing and all grain requires more equipment. This is the ideal solution for anyone wanting to make the next step in their brewing evolution. Easy to program with recipes from beersmith and away you go! Bluetooth works perfectly and the only issues I have found so far after 3 brews is the need for a hop spider/filter of some sort. Highly recommended unit and much cheaper than some other units.
