    Beer has a Sausage Taste

    I was reading am old brewing book the other day published in 1963, there was a beer that actually used a chicken in the brew. It was called spatchcock ale.

    re Coopers commercial yeast

    I recently used it for the first time in a Austalian Pale Ale, I followed Coopers instructions but used 4 long necks,,only because my mate and I were happy to put in the extra effort! I am loving it! It certainly gives the APA a different flavour profile and it tastes very similar to a commercial pale ale. i have saved two jars of yeast for future brews.
  3. Beersmith did a really interesting podcast on this. It's the way your DNA is wired. If you don't like cabbage and those type of vegetables chances are you will not like citra and get the cat pee smell

    Dry hopping

    Good read, I also found the concept of hop creep very interesting.

    Where does all the knowledge come from?

    I've learnt lots here reading from others experience then trying it myself. Also I really enjoy Beersmiths podcasts plus a few YouTube channels.

    BREW DAY!! WATCHA' GOT, EH!? 2019

    Key words Lusty, "could" "should" "can". My work can refuse long service leave, I apply when I want leave then they allocate the leave. I guess it depends soon the industry you are in.

    Coopers Commercial Yeast

    I bottled a Coopers Pale Ale with some harvested ale yeast. I decided to do just a pale ale to compare it with some I have done with kit yeast. So far the smell was great. I harvested some more yeast from that brew. I don't think it's just about saving a couple of dollars with the yeast, but that helps. I like trying new things, developing different flavours and seeing how it goes. I have been reading a bit lately about how to harvest wild yeast. That would be pretty cool to develop your own yeast strain.

    SWMBO works for Drakes and suggested I should talk to the grocery manager, which store did you speak to Lusty?

    Coopers Mexican Cerveza

    I have been doing the Cerveza with BE2 and 20 grams of Citra boiled for 10 mins, everyone who has tried it loves it

    Coopers Cerveza

    Coopers Cerveza has been my go to beer this summer, BE2 and Citra hops. This week I went to brew another one but I can't find any. Normally I can get them from Dan Murphys or Big W. The Dan Murphys website says unavailable and the Big W shelves were empty. Is it going to be still available??

    I usually try to use Drakes but it was frustrating when they dropped BE3

    Flavour/Alcohol increase.

    This is the method I like, I add crystal to a couple of my receipts and it works well
