Posted Wed Oct 10, 2012, 9:13pm Subject: Expobar Brewtus or Astra Gourmet Pourover?
Hey guys, I've been loving my Brewtus (it's the version with the boiler gauge but no brew gauge) but recently got my hands on an Astra Gourmet Auto pourover. Which would you choose? Right now the Astra is running way hot (like 1.6-1.7 bar), just pulled my first shots this afternoon and will be adjusting my first Sirai pressurestat tomorrow. It's been in storage for quite some time methinks, anything I should especially be on the lookout for?
