  1. Just glorious drinking beer out of your own keg, huge thanks to @Hoppy81 for making this possible with his invaluable help & @Itinerant Peasantfor the inspiration to move into this wonderful world of kegging, this is a Real Ale 13 days @ 10psi. My Office/Brewroom/Taproom is a little dark but I can assure you this is the best move I have made. Cheers to all.

  2. Yep it's all good... and mate so well done as going AG and going kegging is a tough gig - and thanks to all those who helped me and esp @Red devil 44 Red with kegging... Just maybe @Classic Brewing Co you need a decent fencepost somewhere for your Beer-ography?

  3. I had to buy a can to see how my ROTM version compares to the original. priming for two weeks it is a really enjoyable beer, I am very happy with it, but the original is on a different level, what a great beer

  4. My Modus Operandi Russian Imperial Stout. What, this gets better with age? You're kidding. Is that possible? Aromas of dark berries, coffee and chocolate. The same with the flavour, plus roastiness. Lovely and rich. I will leave the rest to age for a while (well, maybe).

  6. First pour of the strawberry gose. This beer is what you’d describe as a roller coaster. Sweet, salty, malty, and sour all rolled into one. The salty finish really keeps the thirst un quenched. Bit of a pyramid scheme of a beer. It’s keeps you thirsty while consuming. I’m far from knowledgeable on the sour side of things but the commercial versions I’ve had have poor foam retention I’m guessing that’s from the souring process. Not this bad boy. The 50% wheat gives it a great mouthfeel and a fluffy foamy toupee.

  7. I brewed batch AG #2 Sparkling Ale on Sunday now transferring to the FV the overall volume is down as I thought I had my calculations right ( I am still struggling with BrewFather ) Looks & smells pretty good so I suppose I have made a high ABV Ale. I just de-gassed the Hydrometer jar & the SG is bang on 1.051. I will have to get my water volume right for the next brew.

  8. Beer style = Neipa Beer Name = Juice Bigalow (grain kit) ABV = 6.3% brewed in the BZ 35 Gen4 I was fortunate to have this beer gifted to me By Pierre from Simple Home Brew (you tube) I love a good NEIPA on the odd occasion and this grain kit is worth purchasing the mosiac hops and the citra blend so well in this beer with a total of 200 grams of mosaic and 100 grams of citra 80°c hpstand of 100 grams mosaic for 20 minutes dry hopped 100 of citra for 2 days dry hoped another 100 grams of mosaic the beer is full of juiciness with a great fruity aroma that brings a nice smooth mouthfeel and not overly bitter @ 6.3% abv its not beer you want a great session on unless you want to get drunk this beer was done using a NEIPA profile that is used on the kegland rapt temp controller with the rapt Pill withe lallamend New England IPA yeast just using 1 packet beer started at 1.061 and finished at 1.013 This grain kit is a ripper

  9. Took the dog for a big walk this morning and relaxing now watching the Eagles with an Idaho7 IPA which has been in the keg for over two months and has really turned into a nicely balanced beer. It’s been nice all the way and held it’s hop character

  11. Yes it's a crap photo Apologies But the Münchner Helles after a good while in the keg - fast carbed to begin with - WGAS whether fast or slow - time for the beer to sit cold and think at around 12-16PSI is a beautiful thing... at least a month now.... and then poured with Nitro as the push just cos of location re fridges and kegs and gas... in me festive new filthy french 1664 Vinnies Glass which actually is great for a keg pour... and the beer is just PURE GOLD

  16. Trying to get back on topic you lot with yer High Octane Meisters of all sorts... Trying to keep the carbs down but still have a reasonable feed: All day Brekki with some fresh garden Redleg Beet and then evening a nice Salmon Salad - put in some pickled onion as well which was good.... as well as the usual suspects n some feta... the last nice long green chilli off a mate that was festively tickly but not volcano doom hot... Dogger got the Salmon skin with great happiness... fresh Salmon from Tassie (never been frozen) is the cheapest good qual fish yer can get easily without catching stuff yerself it seems... unless of course I guess you might live near a good fisho or market or coop yeah like some of you lucky Brewers do

  22. Pizza was on the menu last night; with a home-made crust, and topped with tomato paste, mozzarella cheese, mushroom, salami, pork sausage, artichokes, olives, capers and shaved parmesan cheese. Might sound like a dog's breakfast, but it was yummy.

  23. I found this in the fridge, left over from a visit from our good friend @Hoppy81rather risk it going off I thought the best thing to do in the name of ... well something, drink it but I tell you this is beautifully crafted, just as the name says " Nectar of the Hops XPA " absolutely amazing, I would seriously recommend anyone wanting a clean, crisp forward hop tasting XPA, this is the one, the aftertaste is lingering making you want another one - only problem is Hoppy drank them all Well done Hoppy this is an amazing beer, of course the others in your range also are outstanding. Cheers.

  25. Beer. It's a "craft" lager. That means it doesn't need to be clear. Whatever. It's clean, dry and crisp. I like it. Cluster for bittering. M54 yeast because I am lazy. 5% and 28 ibu

  27. I haven't poured one of these in a long time. I spotted a suspicious looking bottle in the batch with that tell-tale ring of bubbles/foam forming at the surface of the beer. It's usually a sign there's a small leak - perhaps in the PET bottle lid or, alternatively a fermentation is taking place in the bottle. Clearly it was the latter! So, looks like this one was contaminated, however the beer itself actually tastes perfectly fine and appears to be completely unaffected (flavour-wise) by what ever caused this tertiary fermentation to take place. It's a Golden ale using 3 NZ hops - Waimea, Wakatu and Wai-iti. It exhibits a slight haze probably due to the small amount of wheat used in the recipe. Not a bad swill, but totally unsuited to the chillly days we've suddenly been assaulted with! Next brew is going to be a porter!

This is Lally Dry K - and wow what an amazing array of aromas and flavours the different Yeasty Boiz can bring

  40. It will have a high Krausen. See the photo below. I did a 21.5 litre batch. The Krausen rose to the underside of the Coopers FV's lid. You can see gunk on the inside of the lid, plus up the sides of the FV. By the way ABV's, if bottle priming: 19 litres = 8.9% 20 litres = 8.4% 21 litres = 8.1% 22 litres = 7.7% 23 litres = 7.4%

  45. I am really enjoying this pouring a beer out of your own tap, this is day 9 on the CO2 & things are starting to smooth out - it even tastes better, I am being very careful not to drink out of anything bigger than a schooner ( SA 285ml ) but I suppose it comes down to how many. Once I get the 4 taps & kegs installed I will have to worry about it even more.

  46. Kegged my first AG Guinness clone. I split the kegs into 2 x 10 litres. I soured one with 2g lacto, and the other with 3% (300g) wort set aside from the FV before fermentation, then boiled for 10 minutes. There was a 6 pack worth of bottles left over so it will be interesting tasting without souring.

  47. How good is it?! When I returned to home brewing a couple of years ago I was determined to escape the bottling curse. Beer on tap at home is the way to go and makes even the most average brew a thing of beauty.
