    Hi BB, How long have you aged it? I bottled a stout/dark ale toucan yesterday.

    What's in your BBQ 2019?

    I don't usually check the temp. Would be about 350c ish, I go by the 2 sec rule. If you can put your hand in the oven for only 2 seconds its the right temp! Use 1kg of 00 type flour, 7-800ml of water, 50 ml of olive oil, 4 tsps of yeast, salt and a pinch of sugar. Mix the dried yeast in warm water. Mix it all together and knead for 5-10 mins. Put in a large tub with glad wrap across the top. Let it rise for a few hours, punch it down. Once it has risen again, divide into 250 gram balls ready to roll out. Usually start it morning of the cook. Definitely not a baker but they turn out pretty good.

    Enjoying my AG Pale, 6-7 weeks in the bottle. Its definitely mellowed out hop wise but still a great beer. Only a few longnecks left. Gotta bottle my stout and get another batch going. Getting the oven heated for pizza dinner.

    Grabbed a few cans from First Choice on the way home from Mothers day duties. Misty Miyagi Hazy IPA to start the arvo. Great drop, hoppy and fruity but balanced with a decent level of bitterness.

    It is Cheating - isn't it?

    I've made their Mosaic pale fwk, not bad if you're short on time and need to get your stocks up. Its a refreshing, easy drinker may have been better again with a decent dry hop.

    What's in your fermenter? 2019

    Put a toucan stout down on Saturday arvo. 1 stout, 1 dark ale, 1kg dextrose and 3 kit yeasts. 6 months too late for this winter! Its currently bubbling away with a giant krausen attempting to escape the fv.

    Looks good. I do prefer the wood oven but the Weber is a lot easier and the food turned out great.

    I enjoyed it but you're right it's not that great. Preferred the 4 Pines.

    Same my wheat beer was fantastic but was also overcarbonated for no apparent reason. Sorry Titan no help but have had same experience.
