    Beer Subscriptions

    Does anyone receive / recommend a beer subscription of sorts? I've seen a few, like Beer Cartel, but not sure what ones would be good. Looking to expand my taste buds without my decision getting in the way of what I choose at the shops. Cheers!

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

    Chuck it in IanH's spreadsheet, but you may need to add in a few extra fermentables like I have, explained in the link below

    The Friday Night 6 Pack Session

    I could definitely drink this everyday. Nice and hoppy with a few malt flavours. 8.5/10

    The Friday Night 6 Pack Session

    What was this like?
  6. First tasting of the Dark Ale I brewed for my dad's 60th. I will need to do one of these for myself! Smooth drinking with nice flavours. Can't tell it's 5.7%. Good carbonation at 2 weeksish in the bottle, but head is lacking. This set of 15 bottles are reused, so the caps may be leaking a bit, but will only get better with age!

    Soon enough Bentspoke will be within a 2 hour drive. Might need a second home in Canberra...

    I just need to make better beer

    Just bottled my first brew.

    Your pantry may be around that, but the yeast fermenting will produce heat, meaning the beer itself will be higher. Best get onto that fridge!

    I'd be treating it as a dirty fermenter, so clean & sanitize with what has been mentioned earlier.

    150 Lashes Extract Recipe

    I put 500gm into an XPA recently and couldn't notice it too much. Was my first time using it though, so I need more practice & experience. Lots of beers like these have a high percentage of Wheat malt. As with anything, practice makes perfect! I haven't had a 150 lashes in a while..

    Gravity Reading headaches.

    You need to start taking OG readings, a beer designing software will give a fair idea, but there are too many variables to say what yours will be vs a recipe. Gravity readings depend on style of beer/yeast attenuation etc.
