  2. My local brewery Porter @ 3.7% - amazingly lovely Hazy pale. Nice, had lactose in it which I am not a fan of. Brewery dog. XPA - lovely drop.

  3. Just having a Stout as we do on a cold Winter's day, I just had a haircut so it's extra chilly. I served one up to a mate last night & he thought it was an actual Coopers Stout - I too am amazed you close can actually get to the commercial recipe.

  4. Mandarin and passionfruit sour - really good, the passionfruit is well aromatic with a nice bitter citrus hit A hoppy pale that's not really hoppy or pale

  5. Flanders Red. 2nd bottle I have had of this batch. Developing nicely in the bottle. I think I should have probably left this in the fermenter a little longer to develop more. The sour is there but it's missing the Brett a little. It was put down in mid Nov 2021 and bottled in mid May. So was 6 months in the fermenter and now a month in the bottle. Still very nice though and looking forward to trying a bottle every few weeks to see its development.

  7. Happy for a few reasons, Cee. Got cheap beers, pickled and free glasses and the wife didn't mind. It didn't hurt that we took her dad out for dinner. She'll overlook my dubious consumption levels if her dad's included.

  8. Haven’t done a recipe of the month for ages but picked ups the Heritage Red Ale kit a while back. First try out of the keg today, naturally carbonated in the keg. Discussion here was that it’s better than the original.

  9. Real Ale is darker than Pale Ale normally & of course extra malt for example would make it even darker, great beer all the same. Left is a Pale Ale - Right a Real Ale.

  10. Went halves in a 4 pack with Hoppy with this beauty. It's got depth and character like I've not tasted before in a beer. Barrel aged in whisky barrels, smoked rye porter. It's sippingly delicious at 12%. As I explained to him, it makes you feel you need to put your favourite slippers and dressing gown on and grab a cuban cigar.

  11. Yes the Real Ale is quite dark compared to a Pale. This one had: 1 kilo Light Dry Malt, 300g Carapils steeped for 30 min. 250g Dextrose and 30g Saphir Hops. I like the Real Ale and do it regularly with little variations. Your Tin and BE2 will be just fine.

  16. The Munich helles has come to its final gravity. Pulled up 2 points short at 1.010 but I think it started slightly higher… anyway it’s come out great despite having a few pH issues along the way. Few more days at 18 and will chill back on Monday for a few. Should be on tap by the next weekend.

  17. Even I can eat meatlike that one mate - looks a beaut. I'm off to Italy next week, I'll post some snaps. My 16 year old actually wants to go down with me - I assumed he'd think I was an un-cool old baaaastard but he was happy to go with me and a mate. Since he doesn't know anyone down there he won't mind me showing him up on the beach. Also knows he'll get a good feed, and if he stayed at home he'll get to eat veggie chili all week... This is what he'll have to put up with : makes you wanna down a Southern Comfort, even though I can't stand the stuff...

  22. I have managed to source these taps from the USA, attached a couple of photos from the young lady who served me, they look really great & are currently in transit. They are 12" tall, I would have liked an assortment of different styles but this was a one off deal & will definitely do for now.

  25. My second last bottle of the Cooper's recipe Smoty Ale. Three and a half month old. No idea what smoty means, but this brew is so smooth. And bitter, but in a very pleasant way. Drinking it at room temperature, about 16 degrees, never thought that I would enjoy a beer this warm. A few years ago, coming from Brazil I only had beer " estupidamente gelado" ( stupidly cold) straight from the freezer. How tastes are changing.... Have to keep the last longneck for a special moment.

  26. So tonight we had dinner in Virginia, which is miles from where we live but not far from the wife's family in Gawler. Lobbed at a very modern looking pub called V. Being the frugal type I am I see Furphy 425ml are on special for $5. Sweet. I order one and the barmaid says I can keep the glass too, as they're deleting the Furphy line. Naturally I drank a couple more. Pretty happy with the wife's choice of dinner venue tonight.

  29. Finally got around to the Samuel Adams Boston lager clone today. A couple of problems in the brewery made it a longer day than planned. Coopers premium pale malt - 93% Simpsons pale crystal - 3.5% Bestmalz melanoiden - 3.5% 15g Hallertauer Mittelfrueh @ 60 50g Hallertauer Mittelfrueh @ 10 50g Tettnang @ 10 Step mash 50° @ 10, 63° @ 70, 70° @ 20 and 10 minute mash out @ 76°. W34/70 and it will be dry hopped with Hallertauer Mittelfrueh 30g and Tettnang 30g. It will be pressure fermented @ 15psi. Had a problem or 2 with the circulating pump blocking on the inlet, finally got that sorted. Then I intended to try out my counter flow chiller and found that I had forgot to get 1 hose ready for the plumbing set up, so ended up hot cubing it. The cube is in the outside fridge, otherwise known as being outside in the cold, should be in the pressure FV in the morning.

  41. I'm trying to use up what hops I have in the freezer. I think I have some East Ken Goldings. I might put those in a Cooper English Bitter. Then I think I might try a Fresh Wort Kit. Maybe the Japanese Lager one. And I have a Cider kit here on my desk. That'll be done in the not too distant future.

  46. I always removed those collars when I used plastic bottles but I don't think it made any difference to tightening the cap. I suppose if you tighten the cap and the collar isn't loose enough to spin around there may be an issue, but I don't think this happens. They are though much like unsanitary foreskins, so I remove them for religious reasons.
