    Cheap Coopers, Where D'ya Get It?

    If you're in Adelaide, Drakes Foodlands carry the basic range of Coopers kit cans for $11.99 (everyday price). I bought a couple of dark ale this morning.
  3. I thought that might be the case. Oh well...
  4. Hey Ruddy. I've been watching a couple of your vids and see you're using packaged water. I fully understand because I'm from Adelaide = poor quality tap water. Have you considered a Puratap or similar product? I was thinking you might be renting and can't install a purifier without landlord permission or the landlord won't install one for you. Not sure how often you brew. I assume it's fairly often. With that in mind, I'd be inclined to get a Puratap or equivalent. Ask the landlord if he/she will pay for it. If they say no, ask if you can install one. With the amount of packaged water you are buying per brew it'd soon pay for itself. And if you aren't renting, get a Puratap asap. They're well worth it.

    Joke For The Day!

    A duck walks into a pub and orders a pint of beer and a ham sandwich. The bartender looks at him and says, "Hang on! You're a duck." "I see your eyes are working," replies the duck. "And you can talk!" exclaims the bartender. "I see your ears are working, too," says the duck. "Now if you don't mind, can I have my beer and my sandwich please?" "Certainly, sorry about that" says the bartender as he pours the duck a pint. "It's just we don't get many ducks in this pub. What are you doing around this way?" "I'm working on the building site across the road," explains the duck. "I'm a plasterer." The flabbergasted bartender cannot believe the duck and wants to learn more, but takes the hint when the duck pulls out a newspaper from his bag and proceeds to read it. So, the duck reads his paper, drinks his beer, eats his sandwich, bids the barman good day and leaves. The same thing happens for two weeks. Then one day the circus comes to town. The ringmaster comes into the pub for a pint and the bartender says to him: "You're with the circus, aren't you? Well, I know this duck that could be just brilliant in your circus. He talks, drinks beer, eats sandwiches, reads the newspaper and everything!" "Sounds marvelous," says the ringmaster, handing over his business card. "Get him to give me a call." So the next day when the duck comes into the pub the bartender says, "Hey Mr. Duck, I reckon I can line you up with a top job, paying really good money." "I'm always looking for the next job," says the duck. "Where is it?" "At the circus," says the bartender. "The circus?" repeats the duck. "That's right," replies the bartender. "The circus?" the duck asks again. "With the big TENT?" "Yeah!" the bartender replies. "With all the animals who live in CAGES, and performers who live in CARAVANS?" says the duck. "Of course," the bartender replies. "And the tent has CANVAS sides and a big canvas roof with a hole in the middle?" persists the duck. "That's right!" says the bartender. The duck shakes his head in amazement, and says: "What the f*ck would they want with a plasterer???"

    That's what I used to tell my wife when she used to drink caffeine-free diet Pepsi cola. There's no caffeine = no cola, no sugar = no flavour. Just drink water.

    But can you make it cheaper than what it already sells for at retail? I doubt it.
  8. Some nicely priced K&K bundles at Dan Murphy and only $90 for a complete Coopers HB kit. You need a Dan's card for these.

    Big W 15% off homebrew and APA

    Just a thought for those not close to a BigW but are close to a Dan Murphy. Screenshot the BigW specials and get Dan to price beat it.

    Put a face to the name

    Due to my numerous chins I could only fit half my face in.

    Gravity Reading headaches.

    In this video they take an OG sample after pitching the yeast. I don't think it would make much difference if you took a sample before pitching though. I imagine it takes the yeast a little time to work it's way through the wort. https://www.diybeer.com/au/brewing-support

    Coopers glasses

    Now that is something to look forward to. Aldi are currently building a store within walking distance of my place. The progress of the build has been quite rapid so with any luck it's done by "Oktober".

    Agree. A lot of the sites I've seen are O/S ones and you either need to order a minimum of 100 units to get a good price or the freight is a killer.
