  1. So I have some E.K.G. and Challenger hops needing to be used. Looking for recipes ideally but also ideas for what types of beers to use these hops in. I do have some Coopers PA, Lager and Real PA tins. Could I use them in these? If so how or when? Cheers for your help in advance
  2. Very simply, what sort of shelve life could I expect from tins of malt exract? Thinking of buying bulk amounts and storing in the beer proofing cupboard (nice consistent temp)
  3. A Ginger Nut Stout. Now that sounds great. If it works, PLEASE OH PLEASE share.
  4. I use a 3 stage process. Immediately after filling each bottle, I do the lid firm. After filling all bottles, go through them, and nip them up. Then as I place them in the cupboard to condition, double check to ensure all is tight. I also ensure that the order is different for each stage.
  5. So bought the Vintage Ale "19 kit. Have mates coming over from Interstate around Xmas. I know the retail versions keep for years. If I bottle in glass is there any reason I can't expect the same? Anything I would need to pay particular attention to or change to make this work? Thanks in advance
  6. So I have been given a gift of 12 long necks of Sparkling Ale for my birthday (a day or two ago). I really want to capture the yeast and culture it for a few brews. But I wont be doing any brewing for at least the next 9 weeks or so, if not more closer to say 13 weeks. So do I , store the beer and harvest the yeast when I can (8-13weeks time)? or do I drink them in (8-13weeks time) and not worry about the yeast? Does storing them in a fridge (say between 2-3 celsius, with tight temp control) help prolong the time I can keep them before harvesting the yeast?
  7. I aint no pro, but just be sure to clean and sanitise your stuff well. Then make sure it is sealed, after that, wait till it has aged in a bottle before worrying about infections. Well, thats what I do.
  8. I personally would not suggest even doing a half with the flu. But hay you aint me. Best of luck man
  9. Bugger dude, Is it your first? Just do the typical fluids, and rest with plenty of healthy eating. Best of luck What is your expected finish time you were wanting?
  10. I used a tin of both Stout and Pale Ale 1kg of Brew Sugar 800g Dextrose (what I had left in the box) 500g of LDM As for yeast, I used both tin yeast and two Mr Beer craft yeasts (iirc from IPA and North Western PA) Does this help?
  11. I just made a Toucan Stout with a twist or two. But my OG is 1.080. Just wondering if there is a means to figure out what sort of FG I might be expecting?
  12. So use all 6 stubbies in one brew? Could I use 3 long neck bottles insted? Local has a sale on the PA
  13. I have mine fermenting ATM, wasn't planning on adding the zest myself. I do like the colour of it
