    • Clone n Wood. Goes ok..... glad I only made a 10L batch though. I’m not even really a fan of actual stone n wood so I dunno why I made this 😂 but beer is beer and I’ll drink it.  I’d probably make again and triple my dry hop quantities.  Cheers 
    • I'm seriously thinking about one of these, and sourcing my 2 main base grains, bulk. Cheers
    • I provide my LHBS with my lidded tradie pale, which I have clearly marked with indelible pen "610gms Tare". I print my grain order for, say 4.6kg of 4 diff grains, and stick it on the lid.  When I get home I weigh for 5210gms. At least I know the grain weight is correct, if not the crushed mix. Cheers
    • I tend to brew seasonally: Summer is for all manner of saisons, different every time Early / mid Autumn is for English and American ales, leaning towards the malty end, different pretty much every time Late Autumn / Winter is for all manner of lagers, traditional, new-world, experimental, different pretty much every time Spring is for English, American and German ales, leaning towards the hoppy end (other than the hefeweizens), different pretty much every time But then I'll throw in some random stuff, whatever will ferment happily at a bit below ambient. There are a few beers that I do plan on re-brewing in the coming months, with some tweaks: Autumn / Winter, my dry hopped Aramis pils, but with more bittering (1.2:1 BU:GU ratio this time)  Spring, my Centennial DIPA, but without any crystal malt, and my Dunkelweizen Summer, my Pacific Saison, but all-grain, and my Kumquat Saison, but with the juice squeezed out of the kumquats first to tone down the acidity a little There's plenty of styles I haven't brewed yet to fill in the gaps, and plenty of room for variation in the styles I have brewed. I really want to do anothet Old Ale at some point (that was sensational) and have been wanting to make a chili, coconut, cinnamon and cocoa stout for years (maybe I'll do it with a lager yeast this winter).  Cheers,  John 
    • Sorry, I was just being facetious given the various characters played by the lead singer of Ghost. You probably need to be a massive nerd to get it.
