  1. Brewing my first XPA at the moment. Really excited about it, smells fantastic. Just dryhopped. Looking forward to the sampling. However, also decided to go sober for the rest of the month (health reasons), so going to be an eager wait to drink it.
  2. I have brewed two different Chestnut based beers. One with roasted and crushed chestnuts, the other with chestnut flour. The bigger flavour was with the roasted chestnuts, but the nicer one was with the flour. Found the roasted one a little overpowering when I drank them next to each other.
  3. Yep. I tried storing them in the walk in robe over Xmas. Wasn't appreciated. Safe to say, my bottles are stored wherever the wife is least likely to crack the shits at. (Currently the top of the cupboard in the laundry)
  4. Looks great. Really into the XPAs at the moment
  5. Hi All Found a bit of a bargin at Costco - a Bridge Road Variety Pack for $48.99 (slab of 24 bottles) Contains their Pale Ale, Summer Ale, Little Bling (Light IPA) and Chestnut Pils, On sale until Sunday. Big fan of all these beers, so went and got two slabs to put under the Xmas tree!
  6. Agreed! By the sounds of things I am not as far editing the old version as you... but still a process to redo it all in the newer version of the spready. Initially I highlighted any cells that I changed, so they will be easy. However more recently I got a little slack.
  7. This has me curious about what changed in version 4.2 now (I am using 4.1)
  8. Hi All Minor update on this creation... Decided on a 15m boil for the Galaxy, with 200g of Chestnut meal and dryhopped the other 25g of Galaxy. Funnily enough the brew came back really cloudy, so I cold crashed for a week. The smell and taste were amazing (for flat beer anyway). Now to bottle and wait patiently for 4 weeks but will have 23L ready just in time for the festive season. The results gives me the motivation to create other recipes. Thanks for all your help and suggestions. Yuley

    I arrived home with a Litre stein once. Not sure how it got there (or how I got home) but the night before I was at an Oktoberfest event, and I assume the magical beer fairy delivered it with the hangover.
  10. What a great idea! We should do it in Melbourne.
  11. Thanks all, Yeah the Galaxy is a result of the Bridge Rd version using Galaxy, seems to be an interesting combination, but tastes ok. Not sure on the boiling time thou, I have read elsewhere about a 60min boil - but that seems excessive Noted on the roasted and crushed nuts. Cheers!
  12. Hi All Anyone got any thoughts on creating a Chestnut Pilsner? Big fan of the Bridge Road Chestnut Pils, and thinking of creating something similar. Thinking... 86 Days Pilsner Can 1kg LDM 400g Chestnut flour (haven't worked out where to source this from yet) 15g Galaxy Hops - Boil of ?? minutes 15g Galaxy hops - Dry Hop Either S23 or Nottingham Yeast Does anyone have any thoughts on boiling time or the yeast? Cheers
  13. Thanks all. Brew is in the FV. Was a much more productive use of time last night than watching the cricket. Will let you know how it goes. I stuffed up the rehydrating the yeast, and didn't use warm water - but reading online today it should be fine.
  14. Thats a scary future... If this was the ad for Climate Change, everyone would believe it exists.
