I'm based in Cork city as of the past couple of years. I've been brewing on and off for a few years and currently do small (10-12L), mostly BIAB batches on a fairly primitive, but effective, stovetop setup.
Looking forward to meeting a few other brewers when normal socialising resumes!
Tons of info on the forum, feel free to read, all of any questions.
Tech has moved along so, while chit chat can be done, a lot of this happens on either WhatsApp or discord.
PM me your mobile and I'll tack you on to the Rebel Brewers.
