Seems the link for your new grain section and premade kits are missing from this page http://www.homebrewwest.ie/grain-hops-oils-pre-made-kits-30-c.asp.

HomeBrewWest

Thanks for that. I need to train the lads top pack these new kits; they need to be able to compensate for hop alphas which change with nearly every hop delivery! Give me a couple of days.

Just back from a restaurant chain in Cork, where we supplied a Speidel micro last year. Very interesting. A lot of paperwork and delays from revenue, eho, Irish water etc. Its actually very complicated, and it has taken up to 9 months for some to get it sorted out. 

Since we are the only authorized Speidel agents on the island of Ireland, we have to provide Speidel support on the ground here, hence the visit to Cork and to other Speidel micros here and in Germany. We are now offering micro setup assistance and advice for potential Speidel customers.

We are now working in conjunction with Speidel and a publican who has a Speidel installation in county Galway: we intend to run a one day Speidel approved hands-on course in conjunction with this pub sometime in June. The pub is running it, and we are supporting them. Speidel will be presenting there too.

The course will cost about 100 to 150 Euros, although I may be able to get a discount for NHC members. In addition to a Speidel demo, advice from Speidel micro users, and Speidel beer samples and the associated recipes etc. it will cover paperwork aspects of setting up a micro.

The idea is that if you are setting up a micro, then attending this course will save you months of elapsed time and potentially hundreds of hours of your own time. Essentially. If you know what you have to do from the beginning, and who top contact etc, then the whole process becomes so much easier and faster.

Would anybody here be interested?

The new Craft Range Automatic Syphons have finally arrived:
http://www.homebrewwest.ie/syphons-tubing-filters-beer-and-wine-strainers-22-c.asp

These are what you would expect from the Craft Range:
- top quality,
- no kinks in the tubing, and
- great price.

Price is low until the other stores stock them (about a week or two at most).

We might bundle there with selected top quality products, maybe Craft range ciders? We could take a hit just to get these products out there because we know that, if you try them, you won't use any other brand again.

Suggestions welcome.

Are these any different from the Youngs auto-syphons?

Similar, but better quality in our opinion. The tubing with the Youngs ones is usually kinked and this hinders flow. The Craft range ones have an elbow and the tube is not kinked.

That's actually my main gripe with the Youngs one. Have tried using hot water to even it out but it's not perfect yet. Might treat myself in my next order from you'se as auto-syphons are class, easily one the handiest bits of brewing kit I've bought.

so for a regular fermenter i need 45cm syphon cwith optional clip and throttle clamp

HomeBrewWest

Yup. I'd go for the 56 cm one though in case you ever get a carboy.

Hi,

Will you be getting in the 2000ml Erlenmeyer flasks any time soon?

Thanks,

Ian
So revel and chaff as ye thirstily quaff, under six feet of dirt it's less easy to laugh!

armedcor

On the Erlenmeyer related front...any chance of getting 3000ml or 5000ml for any kind of a reasonable price?

The course is nearly sold out, we're reserving seats but we've only got a few left.

This is the only one where Speidel will be there this year.
