  1. That should turn out nice. I did a quick partial mash using some light crystal and carapils and the Mexican cervesa as a base with late addition and dry hops with only Azacca Cryo hops. Turned out much better than I expected. Great summer beer.
  2. Thanks for that. I brew med today anyway. Just ended up making a 7 ltr batch with half a kg each of LDME and wheat DME with a 5 min and FO galaxy addition. Will dry hop heavily as well.
  3. Switch to glass and get a bench-top bottle capper. You won't have any further carbonation problems.
  4. It's called a roadie on the way home from work. Either way a glass or in the stubby wouldn't have made any difference to the beer at its current age.
  5. This. Quick, simple and works. Can't be arsed doing anything more involved. A lot of my bottles still have the original labels on them, doesn't have to be pretty, as long as the beer is nice that's all that matters.
  6. I tried one last night after work. It's still too young. The first couple of sips were ok and the hops were up front, but as I got further into it, the alcohol taste got more over powering and the beer was not enjoyable. I ended up tipping the rest of the stubby out. I'm hoping it's just a bit green as it's only been in the bottle a week and it'll mellow out and be more tasty over time. I misread the calendar and didn't realise it's only been bottled a week ago.
  7. I know there's several renditions of a S&W Pacific ale clone recipe scattered throughout the forum. However, I've got about 200g of galaxy still in my fridge that's getting on a bit. I want to make something simple, even if it's just a basic extract based boil to make use of the hops. I've got 500g of wheat DME on hand as well. Any suggestions?
  8. Sorry to hear about the fire, that's awful. With bub #2 due in January, I did a bit of a tidy up in the garage. Didn't realise how much space my brew stuff was taking up. Went to Bunnings and snapped up the last of these shelves. Was the display one so got it for a neat $100, saved myself $70. Now it's all stored neat and tidy.
  9. I had a beer that recently got stuck on 1032 for over a week. Tried everything. Last resort, threw in some liquid form enzyme and it finished up at 1002. Haven't tasted it yet, still bottle conditioning.
  10. If I can't bottle a finished beer as soon as I'd like to, for whatever reason, like work, lack of time, etc I'll generally cold crash it if I wasn't going to otherwise. Seems to have done the trick if it's had to sit in the FV for up to an extra week give or take.
  11. This thing has dropped right down to 1003 on the hydro. Tasting much better now. Think I might have a brut IPA of sorts on my hands. Might chuck a heap of dry hops at this and it might turn out alright...
  12. This thing is going ballistic now. The krausen is massive and there's even a krausen formed in the hydrometer. This beer could possible turn out to be a stuff up turned epic? Will wait n see. Glad the enzyme recommendation paid off, thanks guys.
  13. And it's resurrected, alive and kicking!
  14. Chucked some enzyme in tonight. Liquid form, same stuff used for lower carb beers and brut ipas. See what happens...
  15. Boiled yeast has done sweet FA. Off to the LHBS to see if I can salvage this mongrel.
