Hi Thoz,
Nothing wrong with a T500 and pot .
It’ll get you started and you may find it’s enough for you.
But.... You may be like a lot of us and outgrow it very quickly.
Have fun, make some nice hooch that YOU like and you’ll soon find your feet.

Welcome mate

There's been plenty of good booze made from T500s around here.

Take your time and have a good read of the newbies corner and except the first couple of batches you make wont be great :laughing-rolling: you'll soon get the hang of it :handgestures-thumbupleft:
