  1. @James of Bayswater and @Shamus O'Sean I owe you blokes a beer, those spreadsheets are fantastic. Along with IanH's spreadsheet makes planning a lot easier. Really fun just to play with as well. Thanks
  2. I say give it a go, worse case you get beer. Sometimes you even get better beer! let us know how it goes
  3. My local RSL has Guiness on tap and at a good price to. with the coopers pale being replaced with furphy I wonder if that is more to do with the deal being done by the distributor. the pubs I go to serve the beer I like, if they don't I don't go back.
  4. Finally got my sh%#t together and got my brew going for this, I can't wait to taste this ........... beer
  5. I bottle a few into stubbies and have found Asahi have the heaviest bottles. I waited till they were on special and got a couple of cartons. Or you can go to your lhs and pick up some stubbies.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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
  9. Good read, I also found the concept of hop creep very interesting.
  10. I've learnt lots here reading from others experience then trying it myself. Also I really enjoy Beersmiths podcasts plus a few YouTube channels.
  11. This is interesting, I have lemon, lime and peach tree that I want to try https://bootlegbiology.com/diy/capturing-yeast/
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. SWMBO works for Drakes and suggested I should talk to the grocery manager, which store did you speak to Lusty?
  15. I have been doing the Cerveza with BE2 and 20 grams of Citra boiled for 10 mins, everyone who has tried it loves it
