    Do you filter your beer after the fermentation stage for clarity, if so how?

    Hi man!

    Really useful video. All the items you need to gain access to the world of home-brewing!

  4. Thanks Jon, I appreciate it, hope you get on OK with the brewing, I've just had a copy of 'Clone Brews: Recipes for 200 commercial beers' by Tess and Mark Szamatulski – its an American book but full of great beers. Watch out for my next vid as I'll probably try the Sierra Nevada Pale Ale, can't wait! cheers Clive

  5. Love watching your vids, Clive. This one was very helpful and I have bought the boiler and mash tun through Brupaks (as I get a discount with them). Cheers.
