    Need to sterilise new bottles from kit?

    Welcome to the forum Graeme. Just a god rinse should be fine, you could use some Star San if you wish. Cheers, Peter "Don't waste time, keep drinking".

    Final Gravity is too high.

    Hi Grem, Did you drink/dispose of the first 100ml or so before you took your sample. If you did not this could give you a false reading, as there would be a lot more sediment in your sample. Cheers, Peter "Don't waste time, keep drinking".

    Newly back in to brewing

    Hi Alan, Welcome back to the world of home brewing. At present I have a Devil's Half Ruby Porter (a new product from the Thomas Coopers range) on tap brewed with 1 kg of light dry malt. It is a very pleasant drop. You could also look at the Extra Strong Vintage Ale in the recipe section, another nice high alcohol beer. Cheers, Peter "Don't waste time, keep drinking".

    Malt Mill questions

    I have purchased from these people, I found them to be very professional. You could also try Cheeky Peak, they are in Wodonga. Cheers, Peter "Don't waste time, keep drinking".

    Dry hopping an APA extract brew

    Hi Luke, Welcome to the forum, you could use any of those hops in an APA. I started with Cascade & have now progressed to using various hops when brewing, whether it be kit & extract or grain & extract. Good luck. Cheers, Peter "Don't waste time, keep drinking".

    Going Mad

    Hi Apples, welcome to the forum. +1 to Frosty Chop, I believe the problem may be in your tap. I have 2 Coopers FVs and not had a problem with them, however I do have an extra tap on hand so that I can dismantle it completely and give it a good clean. You need to pull the rubber seal out and make sure it is cleaned behind the seal. All the best. Cheers, Peter "Don't waste time, keep drinking".

    Fermenting lid clips

    ......... You will only need them if you are doing a volcanic brew. Cheers, Peter "Don't waste time, keep drinking".
  12. Hi fellow brewers, Just prior to retiring 12 months ago I purchased a new Mazda CX5 Akera AWD as we wanted something that was easier to get into & out of. 13,000 kms later I am still in love with this vehicle, as it can be driven as an auto or manual. Cheers, Peter "Don't waste time, keep drinking".

    Granulated Sugar v Carbonated Drops

    PeterMur, you will find that 1 carbonation drop = 1 teaspoon of sugar/dextrose. Hence 2 drops/teaspoons to a 740/750 ml bottle. If the recipe says to carb with one drop per 375 ml bottle, would you not put 2 in a 740/750 ml bottle? Cheers, Peter "Don't waste time, keep drinking".
