Ok so i just finished my very first brew and i must say it was a great fun. i had just gotten the boiler into the ice bath when the bloody power went out ;) .

I had a few issues using my slow cooker as a mash tun as it would only get to around 65 in the centre but would almost be 73 around the outer edges.
My pre-fermentation reading was 1080 not sure if that's to high? temp of wort was about 25.

But i will say i wont be brewing in the unit again the wife has banned me from brewing inside... :whistle:

Sounded fun hahaha yeah i had to have the probe about an inch off the wall of the cooker give it a good mix at the start and when ever you feel the need. Should be fine. Sounds like a big one!
