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

    Sure do. I’ve used them together a couple of times and they went really well.

    What are you listening to right now????

    It was awesome. Played for two and a quarter hours non stop. His son drums for him now. He’s 17 and tearing it up. Phil took the mickey out on himself about his foot and the fact he does most of the sitting down. Did a whole bunch of hits and some lesser known ones too. A couple of Genesis songs. The band was fantastic! Sound was incredible. At 67 he puts on an amazing show. There was definitely something in the air last night.

    Craft Beer Prices - Getting Expensive or Just Me?

    I should add that I wasn’t a big lager drinker until recently, guess I was put off by all the crappy ones from megaswills.

    Craft Beer Prices - Getting Expensive or Just Me?

    It was the 4% one. I tasted it after a 4.6 lager and a couple of my ales and it still matched up ok.

    moving fermentor

    Speaking of moving your fermenter, if you’re using an old school one with an aiglock, pull the airlock out a bit before you move it. Forgot the other night and sucked half the sanitiser back into the fermenter.

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

    I let the MJ29 have its head when I did mine sitting on the laundry floor. Got up to 28 on day 2 and pretty much stayed there til bottling, except for a really hot day where we had the aircon on and I think it dropped to about 26. Speaking of that, do people log there temperatures through their brews? Just wondering if it’s something that I should be doing?

    Show us your current brewing set-up !

    Cheers. I’ve read quite a few great things about them, including yours. I never got the brew down until tonight, and my temp was a little high so I stuck a couple of smaller bricks in tonight, along with the 2 x 2l milk bottles. I’ll see how it’s going in the morning and might pull the two smaller ones out.
  11. Having a Wakachangi Lager while I bottle the Blue Moon clone and get ready to put down my Shark Attack XPA. The lager is very crisp and clean. Damn good.

    Was never a Nirvana fan but my daughter got the MTV Unplugged DVD. Really cool.

    ESVA ROTM

    I tried one last week and wasn’t fussed either. Not a bad beer as such but not something I’d brew a batch of. But I might grab a six pack and store for a few months then drink it over a year just to see how something like that would age.

    Well after trying to reorganise my garage 3 times to try and fit in a brew fridge, I went and bought a Cool Brewing bag this morning. While I probably won’t be brewing any lagers during summer, I don’t really drink to many anyway. With music rooms and camping gear, I think this might be the best solution to get some temp control. I’ll be putting it to the test tomorrow, got the ice bricks in the freezer ready.

    Shark Attack XPA

    I like most of the IPAs but I can’t really have a session on them, but balters XPA is a different kettle of fish. I can definitely knock over a few of them, but that’s not a cheap afternoon! if it somewhere around the bitterness of that one I think I’ll be a happy boy.
