    Hello

    I very recently got back into brewing (brewed my first Porter (http://www.brewersfriend.com/homebrew/recipe/view/97963/oscar-s-porter) in years today). Searching for some good tools to use I found Brewer's Friend and was amazed. Everything I needed in a intuitive online package.

    I use two 36 liter kettles with false bottoms in a make shift stove top brewery, some heavy lifting but I seem to hit my numbers almost spot on. Since I won't brew all that often it's all I need for now.

    So why did I get back into brewing? Mostly for fun but also because quitting my job and going to engineering school made the amount of craft beer I drink unaffordable, since I already had the equipment and the know-how..well. here I am.

    Gothenburg is a lovely town! I've been there through my company - we have an office in Gothenburg - but didn't get to stay nearly long enough. Welcome aboard!

    Greetings from Ohio, USA. Hope things are going well. I just got back into the hobby and am
    trying the BIAB mashing method. My brother was in Gothenburg recently, and is now in Germany.
    I am retired recently from pharmacy. Good luck with your beer. Nick
