Hello all , bit of an accidental brewer here , was approached 3 years ago about setting a brewery up on my farm , the deal was I would build the building and venue and the partners would provide the equipment and know how . Anyways long story short I built the building and the partners when faced with the high costs of the equipment pulled out :( ..... Life is strange like that - been making beer for the last year on a 50L Speidel system with 2 x 60L fermentation tanks - loving it , I was always a Windhoek man and even when approached with the brewery idea I was a bit reticent - found myself with a Windhoek in one hand and one of my beers in the other - converted ! Hope to learn lots here and just maybe one day the building i built might just house a fine collection of shiny things and some sublime tastes .. Cheers All

Welcome Derek.
Shiny brewing bits are always good!
Start small though and put that Spiedel to work on tweaking a few recipes.
