    • Last night, while bottling, I cracked open my BoPils that's been in the bottle lagering for a month now. Tastes great, can really taste the extra saaz tea added. Needs a little head retention work, this was my last pure extract brew before starting to dabble in grain additions. But other than that I'm happy I've got 2.3 cartons of this lying around for the next few weeks. Super clear, used zero finings and no cold crashing. #winning. Didn't pass the wife test though, she said it tasted like minestrone... 🤔 Hopefully she's wrong and I don't just have biased taste buds.
    • Thanks for info will head to woolies later see what thy have  
    • I use sodium percarbonate for cleaning, starsan for sanitizing.  If you can't get percarbonate by itself you can use unscented nappy soakers.
    • I am going to start brewing again after about 1.5 years away .what is the best cleaner to buy for the fermenter 
    • Had a glass of my red ale/pale ale blended beer last night. Interesting beer but overall tastes good. That Caraaroma is more of an undertone, with the Waimea hops more dominant, color is a bright red rather than the deeper red of the red ale. It's a bit cloudy from the pale ale, and hopefully the proper pale ale keg clears up more in the few weeks it sits before it actually winds up on tap. I'll probably have to buy beer again next weekend just in case the lager keg runs out, but I'm hoping there's still enough left in it to last through next weekend, because this little keg of 8L will probably be gone by the end of this weekend, especially with a brew day happening tomorrow 😜.
