  2. Hi everyone, I havn't posted in quite some time, had a few demons to deal with. All good now, while I was absent I threw myself into my kegging project and are now producing some nice beers. This is a Armadillo with gelatine in the cc cheers John
  3. galaxy hops go very well with that style
  4. stocks were pretty low after Christmas, so I put down a quick coopers recipe. Lightning strike, very nice brew,
  5. Torrified wheat is a pre-gelatinized unmalted brewers wheat that can be used as a cereal grain/adjunct in the mash, and can replace malted wheat if you desire. Increases body and head retention, as well as adding a very slight toasted flavor.
  6. Bottled and capped 30 bottles of Nelson Sauvin summer ale today, then realised forgot to prime the bottles, as if one capping is enough without doing it twice!! bring on the kegs!
  7. I did up the hop additions by a couple of grams, @Popo
  8. successful brew day today, put down a Nelson Sauvin summer ale, cubed and into the fermenter Sunday. Never tried this hop before , so looking forward to this one

  12. Hi Marty, being a diabetic I also do mid strength AG brews, to be honest I havn't noticed any difference in taste and are producing some really good beers, I also am a reasonable drinker, and my Doc. is happy at this stage, which makes me happy,
  13. Benny,s pacific ale, same as you, a big thank you to all who helped me go down the AG path. Next kegs!! cheers and merry Christmas to all john
  14. Brew day tomorrow, gonna be a scorcher in the garage here in Adelaide, going to put down a Kolsch which I havn't tried before, beersmith say ferment the WLP029 kolsch yeast at 15deg. on the packet it says 18 - 20deg ? not sure which to go for, john

  16. Hope all is well for you and your family over there @BlackSands, not knowing how far from the disaster you are, I guess the smoke could be bad ? cheers, john
  17. Most of their gear is reasonably priced, not sure on freight, I pick up JG
  18. I can get 25 kg of coopers ale malt for 55bucks, specialty malts for 4-5 bucks per kilo which averages for a brew with hops and using harvested yeast about 22-24 ,less if using my own stock of hops,
  19. The grain not the rodents
