    • Sampled a glass of my mead. Has dropped crystal clear now, looks like a young riesling. Tastes really nice actually, but could use some more time I think. Really interesting what fermentation did to the flavour of the honey though. Will see what a couple of days in the fridge does to the other half of the bottle. 
    • Bottled mine up tonight. Filled a 6l Tap-a-draft bottle and 10 stubbies, so can drink some fresh on tap then see how a bit of bottle age treats the rest. Beautiful hop aroma and yeast character shows well despite never getting much hot weather. The fermenter was only at 21C when I bottled it up. Cheers,  John
    • Can you got the Cluster 8 up there? If so, buy as much of it as you can get your hands on. 
    • I really liked the Australian Brewery Pale Ale, more than I expected to. Thought the Goose Island beer was pretty underdone though ...in no way justifies the 'IPA' acronym, yes even with the 'Session' qualifier in front of it. All I can say is there'd better be a saison and a hefeweizen in the last few somewhere! Imagine having 25 'summer' beers without an example of what I reckon are the 2 best summer styles. 
    • Will do. Thank you very much for your help.
