  1. These Movers Dolly's from Bunning's are great for $16.00. One keg is full of beer & the other Sanitiser & you can move them with ease.
  2. I finally kegged the Pale Ale today, SG was 1.050 - FG 1.014, after yesterday's discussion on how much goes into the keg I found that filling it to the weld line must be 19l as I got 8 x 500ml Hef'e bottles out of it which makes 4l for the 23l batch.
  3. Yes, I agree, I see people in the Supermarkets with their trolleys filled up with useless, sugary, unhealthy stuff like cereal, sweet biscuits, cake, custard tarts, white bread, soft drink & the odd frozen dinner or tin of something & of course lollies. I can't believe it because all of that rubbish cost more than a few pieces of lean meat/fish/chicken, vege's & salads & they are the ones that say it is hard to make ends meet. Being a home brewer allows me to lash out now & again & have fillet steak, seafood etc & I reckon I am still in front.
  4. Cheers Mick, I had visitors on the weekend & there was a lot of food left so rather than freeze it I thought I would just use it up. It is also amazing at how cheaply you can eat with just a few simple ingredients. My mum use to be very thrifty so I must have caught it from her or I could blame the Army as I was a Cook.
  5. I use White Sugar as I get better head retention than I ever did with Carb Drops & far cheaper too, Dextrose is even dearer so I wouldn't bother even to try it.
  6. This by no means is anything to write home about but I just wanted to use up some Drumsticks left over from the LWE so I chucked together a few vege's & there you have it, possibly with some steamed broccoli & butternut. BTW Stquinta it is not cooked properly yet
  7. Mate I know that I haven't played golf for 30 + years & I don't intend to, there are heaps of options available, my post was all about membership fees. Anyway, Cheers.
  8. Looking nice & 'Pilsnerish' to me AK, nice colour & promising head.
  9. Thar she blows, this was the Coopers Brew A IPA - a beautiful brew. Now I do an AG brew & keg another that is still in the brew fridge, No rest for the wicked.
  10. Exactly, I agree, why be a tightar... when it comes down to your beer?? That stuff has got soap & all sorts of stuff that kills the head on your beer. The smell is bad enough
  11. All the above advise is spot on, my two bobs' worth is Bi Carbonate of Soda - you can buy it cheaply from Coles, I have been using it for years, it is great for cleaning the FV's. I use abut 2-3 heaped Tablespoons of it in the FV & fill it up with warm water & let it soak for a day or two. It virtually removes everything, but I still use sodium percarbonate to clean it thoroughly & then sanitise. I do not use any product on any of my equipment including glasses that contain soap.
  12. I would take it out of the fridge, pour 1/2 glass, see what you think & let it sit at room temperature for 30 minutes & see if you can taste the difference as the hops will be more noticeable. Oh, so you don't get thirsty, have something else in between
  13. Yeah, I didn't check any official figures but mainly meant we see road deaths on the Telly everyday usually to do with speed/booze/drugs/un-due care & of course genuine accidents. We all criticise the breathalyser's/speed cameras etc but without them it would be worse.
  14. I think it is David, I notice the difference, but I seem to be able to tolerate different beer tastes, I gave my neighbour a Butcher Glass of the Kentish Strong Ale & he struggled with it & I know for sure the guys in our lunch group would all be the same. Strange really because if I gave some to a couple of other mates that brew it would be different. QUOTE: What temperature should beer be served in the UK? Imperial stouts and brown ale are packed with rich ingredients and are popular beers in England. So, it’s no surprise that England has forever been associated with drinking warm beer. Stouts, old ales and dark ales are ideally served between 12 - 15 degrees celsius. https://www.bing.com/ck/a?!&&p=f19816ab9d9ab21bJmltdHM9MTY2NDc1NTIwMCZpZ3VpZD0xYTIxMGEyMy1kMzg4LTZiMGEtMGMyMS0xODExZDJlODZhZmUmaW5zaWQ9NTE3MQ&ptn=3&hsh=3&fclid=1a210a23-d388-6b0a-0c21-1811d2e86afe&psq=serving+temperature+for+Kentish+Strong+Ale+in+celscius&u=a1aHR0cHM6Ly9vemNvb2xlcnMuY29tLmF1L2Jsb2dzL2Jsb2dzL3doYXRzLXRoZS1iZXN0LXRlbXBlcmF0dXJlLWZvci1iZWVyLWd1aWRlLXRvLXNlcnZpbmctdGVtcGVyYXR1cmVz&ntb=1
  15. Here you go guys, check out the Membership section on this website; my local - even if I could afford it, I couldn't get in anyway.

  16. I was wondering about that too, if it is too cold you won't get a good head or experience the intended taste.
  17. Yeah, I noticed that, but I think it is a good investment, I don't think I could stand on there for a weight check though
  18. I thought it was compared to their Pale Ale & others.
  19. Sounds like everything I would like in a beer, I have tried a couple of theirs so I might check it out.
  20. I remember around 2019/2020 I was near travelling home to Adelaide from West Wyalong heading to Deniliquin & the fires in the Batlow region were raging & the wind blew smoke so thick it was like a fog & the smell was overpowering. I spent a lot of time in the Riverina & I was aware of the danger & terrible circumstances people were suffering.
  21. Kegging Day for a Coopers Pale Ale using US-05, this is day 14 @ 20c. It looks like it has done a good job & I like the colour, hopefully in a few days I will be having one out of the tap.
  22. In Adelaide my closest Big W stocks a huge range of Coopers/Brigalow products & the prices keep increasing the same as they do in the Supermarkets but on special occasions; Easter/Father's Day etc they usually have at least 20% off. Sadly, the Woolworths adjacent removed all of the stock from their shelves & there are no discounts currently, probably will be at Xmas.
