  1. Hefe Wheat Light Malt extract 250g light crystal malt steeped 1kg BE3 Amarillo, Galaxy and Enigma - in boil and dry hopped Voss Kviek yeast Brewed under stairs at around 30°, and due to the high activity there was a lot of bubbling so my wife has named it Polyjuice Potion. Hydrometer says it Should be 8.8%, however I'm not confident in the OG reading.. I think it should be closer to 6.5%. Very "juicey" is probably best way to describe. It's pretty good.

  2. Even though poor spelling and grammar grind my gears a little, I'm learning to look past the errors of other people. There's not enough time in the day to correct all of them. Perhaps the government could wage a war on "error" and start by putting more funding into education and, more specifically, English.

  3. All grain English Porter. First time using my new Brewzilla from @Hoppy81 To say I'm stoked is an understatement. Easy to put together, easy to use. Great little machine.

  5. Westmalle Triple. A bit hefty at 9.5, and to be honest I prefer the Dubbel (at a mere 7 %). I made a bit of a pig’s ear pouring it too…

  7. Finally brewed and tasted the Coopers Hazy IPA ROTM pack. Fantastic! Very happy with the outcome especially first time using the CCA yeast. (I failed at washing it - did have Jars and tried to use bottles. Oh well will just have to drink some more Coopers PA to get some more CCA ) Would post a photo, but about 4 pints deep - and strangly they all seem a little blurry at the moment.

  8. It is so easy to use. Ive just brewed another beer today ( a lager ) and hit targets bang on the money both days. I was starting to taper off a lot with my brewing, using gas was doing my head in. This has really got me enthusiastic again.

  10. Read this, out loud, finger on the Page Down button so you have no excuse to pause. How many mistakes...? English is Tough Stuff Dearest creature in creation, Study English pronunciation. I will teach you in my verse Sounds like corpse, corps, horse, and worse. I will keep you, Suzy, busy, Make your head with heat grow dizzy. Tear in eye, your dress will tear. So shall I! Oh hear my prayer. Just compare heart, beard, and heard, Dies and diet, lord and word, Sword and sward, retain and Britain. (Mind the latter, how it's written.) Now I surely will not plague you With such words as plaque and ague. But be careful how you speak: Say break and steak, but bleak and streak; Cloven, oven, how and low, Script, receipt, show, poem, and toe. Hear me say, devoid of trickery, Daughter, laughter, and Terpsichore, Typhoid, measles, topsails, aisles, Exiles, similes, and reviles; Scholar, vicar, and cigar, Solar, mica, war and far; One, anemone, Balmoral, Kitchen, lichen, laundry, laurel; Gertrude, German, wind and mind, Scene, Melpomene, mankind. Billet does not rhyme with ballet, Bouquet, wallet, mallet, chalet. Blood and flood are not like food, Nor is mould like should and would. Viscous, viscount, load and broad, Toward, to forward, to reward. And your pronunciation's OK When you correctly say croquet, Rounded, wounded, grieve and sieve, Friend and fiend, alive and live. Ivy, privy, famous; clamour And enamour rhyme with hammer. River, rival, tomb, bomb, comb, Doll and roll and some and home. Stranger does not rhyme with anger, Neither does devour with clangour. Souls but foul, haunt but aunt, Font, front, wont, want, grand, and grant, Shoes, goes, does. Now first say finger, And then singer, ginger, linger, Real, zeal, mauve, gauze, gouge and gauge, Marriage, foliage, mirage, and age. Query does not rhyme with very, Nor does fury sound like bury. Dost, lost, post and doth, cloth, loth. Job, nob, bosom, transom, oath. Though the differences seem little, We say actual but victual. Refer does not rhyme with deafer. Foeffer does, and zephyr, heifer. Mint, pint, senate and sedate; Dull, bull, and George ate late. Scenic, Arabic, Pacific, Science, conscience, scientific. Liberty, library, heave and heaven, Rachel, ache, moustache, eleven. We say hallowed, but allowed, People, leopard, towed, but vowed. Mark the differences, moreover, Between mover, cover, clover; Leeches, breeches, wise, precise, Chalice, but police and lice; Camel, constable, unstable, Principle, disciple, label. Petal, panel, and canal, Wait, surprise, plait, promise, pal. Worm and storm, chaise, chaos, chair, Senator, spectator, mayor. Tour, but our and succour, four. Gas, alas, and Arkansas. Sea, idea, Korea, area, Psalm, Maria, but malaria. Youth, south, southern, cleanse and clean. Doctrine, turpentine, marine. Compare alien with Italian, Dandelion and battalion. Sally with ally, yea, ye, Eye, I, ay, aye, whey, and key. Say aver, but ever, fever, Neither, leisure, skein, deceiver. Heron, granary, canary. Crevice and device and aerie. Face, but preface, not efface. Phlegm, phlegmatic, ass, glass, bass. Large, but target, gin, give, verging, Ought, out, joust and scour, scourging. Ear, but earn and wear and tear Do not rhyme with here but ere. Seven is right, but so is even, Hyphen, roughen, nephew Stephen, Monkey, donkey, Turk and jerk, Ask, grasp, wasp, and cork and work. Pronunciation -- think of Psyche! Is a paling stout and spikey? Won't it make you lose your wits, Writing groats and saying grits? It's a dark abyss or tunnel: Strewn with stones, stowed, solace, gunwale, Islington and Isle of Wight, Housewife, verdict and indict. Finally, which rhymes with enough -- Though, through, plough, or dough, or cough? Hiccough has the sound of cup. My advice is to give up!!!

  12. Thought I had better give this kegging time thread a bit of a bump before it is lost to the deep dark archives. Kegged my second batch of a Coopers Sparkling Ale clone this arvo via my beer filter setup because I was so impressed with its outcome when last kegging done from the Fermzilla. That time a very clear beer was able to be poured just 1 day after kegging so very keen to see the differences with the two Sparkling Ale kegs as I can compare with the first one done a month or so back which was not filtered. Will post a pick of this beer when I pour a test glass tomorrow night.

  16. Hey @Prince Harry. Welcome aboard. Im out in the bush too. I think you’re amongst friends on this site - well like minded brewers anyway I haven’t used perle hops but they look about double the AA of saaz so you should get a little bit more bitterness from a 10 min boil. I have used M84 before. It gave a nice lager but did have a few fruity esters that came through (slight). I have since moved to w34/70 which seems a bit more neutral. What you’ve done sounds good. It should pack a fair punch alcohol wise as well ! I’d be interested to hear how it turns out

  18. I not sitting around waiting. Got an Irish stout and a draught close to bottling. Got 3 fv and living the dream. Ive done about 26 brews in past year. Used to go to a craft brewery near me. No more Jose. $85 a slab. I’m new to forum, but have brewed enough to keep me happy last 12 months. Missus is a 4xxxx girl but likes the clone GN crisp I’ve done.

And don't get me started on the permanent misuse of their, there, they're or your and you're. Then of course there is for "all intensive purposes" instead of intents and purposes.

  23. I like the Aussie reverse nicknames. I think there is a proper description of it. Like when we call The redhead guy "Bluey" The bald guy "Curly" The quite guy in the corner "Rowdy" My uncle called me "Baldy" when I was a kid, because I had a mop of hair on my head By the way @ozdevil, is it okay for me to call my Brother-In-Law, "Bro"?

  25. I fear you misjudge The Great Muzzled One sir. In my mind I see him in his lair, pacing to and fro, pondering the matter.Should he treat this lot of nonsense as the unfortunate scribblings of the great unwashed? Or should he draw a line against so much blatant, and at times wilful illiteracy? If the latter, and he chooses to” stiffen the sinews and summon up the blood” as recommended by Henry V, then we should all be afraid. Very afraid. I await his response with trepidation. Stay close to shelter.

  27. With a hand firmly on the floodgate to stem the flow,I humbly submit the following grievances. 1. They say. Who are they? Give me their names and contact numbers. They are usually wrong and could no doubt benefit from my advice. 2. Going forward. Yes,of course you are. Time is a uni-directional entity. Dr Who is not real. Sorry! 3 Outsourcing. You are getting,buying,obtaining,or many other perfectly apt and more elegant words. Outsourcing is an ugly latecomer. Avoid it! 4. Mispronunciation of the word “ vulnerable”. There are two l’s in it. There is no extra charge for voicing both .Same for the l in the name of our country. Just because Albo and Eddie used to be Everywhere stuff it up doesn’t mean you should. 5 Strategic plan. You have either a plan or a strategy. Either words could be appropriate. Choose one and stick with it. The other becomes redundant. That’s my little bit of steam let off for the day. I do believe I will have a smallish drink. They say it’s good for you. Cheers!

  30. Hey All Heads up if you have ordered Something from Victoria or ACT or NSW consider cancelling your order unless you are prepared to wait Australia Post are suspending all parcel pick up from these areas If ordering try to order through direct freight (freight finders) if ordering Keg King and ring them as they use australia Post for an alternative courier company and others i would be ringing as well that you have used in Vic act or NSW This is very real i am not joking its going to effect everyone around the country its becuase they are falling behind due to covid and allowing them to catch up and deliver what they already have

  33. I dont always PBW after a brew just give a good solid wipe over and give good rinse about every 5 uses i run pbw through it at around 55 -60 degrees c and i will let it sit for an hour then will get rid of that then refill with frsh water and get that to 60-65 degrees to help get the slippery film from te pbw off and all good to go for next time if you get rid of the overflow pipe and replaced it with a bolt just leave it there no point unscrewing it unless planning on using overflow pipe i mentioned earlier if you took the over flow pipe out you could just put a bolt where the overflow pipe was

  35. If it works for you thats ok. Just personal preference. 11 degrees is at the very lower end for W34/70, could incite problems such as diacetyl. 15 degrees is around the top end so personally i'd aim for 13. But all up to you. Thats what this place is about.

  36. Well for a start they are made by Coopers so they are the same fine quality as the larger 1.7kg cans, basically you don't need to add anything apart from the yeast, but I prefer a bot more body & usually add 250-500gm of Liquid Malt Extract or Light Dry Malt ( powder ) & it makes a better beer. The cans are pre-hopped but if you are a hop-freak like me just chuck more in. The only sugar you would need would be at bottling time or Carb Drops. Hope this helpps Cheers Phil

  43. Ok, I now have my manifold and inline regs set up and all works a treat. The only annoying thing is that the regulators don't seem to have a pressure release valve, so in order to reset them, you have to disconnect the gas line on the out port. I need to drop the serving pressure a little as I get a fair bit of froth but in order to do so, I need to disconnect the gas line on all regs. That may not be a big issue, once the Kegerator is in its final place, the board with the regs and manifold is wall mounted and I have my tool to easily release duotight connectors. But for now, is there such a thing like an "inline PRV"? Like something I can put in behind the reg to release the pressure? Or can I release the pressure on the disconnect? That'd be easier and less prone to causing a gas leak than disconnecting the lines every time I need to adjust pressure down. This kegging rabbit hole is just as deep as the one for brewing Since I bought the Kegerator, I currently have put in my 3rd order with Kegland. Every time I think I am set, something else comes around the corner The good thing is, I like not bottling and just walking up to the Kegerator and pour a beer

  44. I have a line with beer disc on 1 end and gas on the other to use for daisy-chain keg cleaning - because I use duotights it's a simple matter to just remove the gas disc and plug the line into the manifold. I haven't noticed any issue with hops and I am pretty light on them anyway - but I'm not sure how it could be tested? Maybe a Brulosophy trial?

  45. i dont think it makes to much of a great difference just making it quicker process for gas to absorb into the beer.. either method works . wether or not with the set and forget method it gets you drinking beer any quicker i havent really taken much notice. if carb from the out post or in post i will say the kegs i have getting carbed up now , i am carbing up through the gas posts , but the previous kegs was all kegged through the out posts

  46. There are a couple of things that once really annoyed me but now pretty much let it slide. However the one that I really dislike is: No need for a hydrometer or temperature control just leave it for 14 days then bottle it. It is usually followed by "I have been doing Woolies cans and sugar that way for 30 years and there is nothing wrong with my beer ". I know I shouldn't judge but if that is the only experience you have you should not give advise. It is like giving travel advise to people and the only place you have been is Bali and that was on a Con Tiki tour in 1990.
