    What's in your fermenter? 2019

    Thanks Norris, Sounds like a plan. I was hoping to get away with yeast and small dry hop given the cost of the fresh wort. My last brew cost $55 for 22L. Fresh wort will be more. Really appreciate the feedback.

    What's in your fermenter? 2019

    AG Pale with Cascade, Centennial and Mosaic has been in fermenter since Monday. Looking at bottling next weekend. Wanna keep stocks up but time is always an issue so I'm thinking of trying an All Inn Brewing fresh wort. Not sure which one. Has anyone tried their fresh wort kits?

    The Friday Night 6 Pack Session

    Grabbed some Pirate Life Pales and Slo Brew IPA on the way home. PL is always good. Definitely rate the Slo Brew too, nice IPA.

    The Friday Night 6 Pack Session

    We visited the Geelong brewery last year and thought the facility was fantastic. I wasn't previously impressed with their beers in bottles but found the seasonal IPA and White Rabbit Dark Ale really good fresh on tap. The Pale Ale is not bad at $60 a box on special.

    Toucan Stout

    Im thinking about brewing one, do you think 4-5 months in the bottle would be ok. Planning ahead for winter.

    Canning machine for homebrewers

    I agree totally but if money wasn't an issue I'd want one for sure!

    Todays tastings

    A few photos from yesterdays tastings. Tried a Big Shed Strawberry NEIPA, not a fan of it at all. Had a few Fox Hat XPAs and PL Mosaic IPAs, both were great on tap. Had a taster of a Pirate Life Whiskey Barrel Stout, I didn't buy it but I heard its about $40 a longneck. Really nice.

    No I put them in a pot and heated for about 10-15 mins first.

    RDWHAHB - WHAT ARE YOU DRINKING IN 2019?

    First try of my AG raspberry wheat beer. About 2 weeks in the bottle, tastes amazing. Bottled 10l as is and 10l went into secondary with 1kg of raspberries. Doesn't show it in the photo but it's a pink looking brew. Mrs is very happy with the end product.

    The Friday Night 6 Pack Session

    Grabbed a few cans on the way home. Hawker west coast IPA. A big beer, super hoppy and bitter. Enjoyed it. Having a Hop Nation Jedi Juice now. Doesn't taste like other NEIPAs I've tried, its hazy but its bitter and hoppy. I like it, some of the others I tried were too sweet. Sorry not great at beer descriptions!

    The Weber Q is great for after work or when I can't be bothered . Heats up quick etc but can't beat the wood oven for flavour.

    Thanks Guvna, Love it when I have the time to do a cooking day. Gotta plan ahead and make a day when I get up real early do a brisket, lamb shoulder and sides for a party. Had plenty of pizza nights.

    Look like a top day lusty, I've got the brick oven going, started with a few pizzas while it was super hot. Then a little brisket has been in about 3 hrs, baked potatoes and corn. Homemade chicken burgers on the Weber Q for the kids and lunches for a few days. A few beers also!
