Although the Swansea Brew Club staff admit that 90% of their business is winemaking, this is a great place to make beer. They boast a series of four gas-fired 10-gallon copper kettles, a heat exchanger and a sizeable cold storage facility. They also have great bottle washing and bottling facilities, whether you wish to use cans or plastic/glass bottles. Anytime we've been there, there have been a couple of other brewers either making or bottling beer, which always gives way to discussion and mutual tastings of each other's brews. Zenon, the manager, is the guy you want helping you with your brew. He is quite knowledgeable and is perhaps the most fun-loving and easy going person on the planet.

Our first batch was exclusively extract and pellet oriented, but I found the SBC team quite wiling to mix in grain bills and even additives like chocolate for subsequent batches. These guys do a great jobad I'd recommend them as a place to brew your next batch.
