Sad to report that negotiations have failed and I can't snag a leave pass for this weekend. Gutted I can't make it.

Love it. Will only need about a sack of BB pale malt, Yob can bring 100g of Super Pride and Martin will have to bring about 200kg of dextrose to split.

Exzackery!!

Oh wait, isn't the Mayor volunteering to be the head brewer?
In that case I'd suggest either another Belgian Strong (gulden draak or karmelieter?) or a Flanders Red, just to test him out a little
Maybe a triple decocted Munich Dunkel or doppelbock

Im sure the OC can look after the crew and if you want 5kg lots I can probably still assist.

 

I am however still in question for attendance this one, will be the first one Ive missed in 8 solid swaps I think... I will be hellishly busy about then and I dont think I'll be able to walk away for a full weekend.

 

-_- :unsure: <_<

Yeah, +1 check with the OC for supplies.

He & Clever Brewing were fantastic with the 2016 Xmas Case Swap brew. Obviously you can't guarantee he/they can repeat that effort, but it'd be worth enquiring. 

Probably best to work out roughly the top 2-3 options for the brew day recipe, and then see what is workable at the supply end.

Maybe simply work out if the consensus is for a malty or hoppy (or "yeasty"), mild/medium or strong beer? Then go from there for a specific recipe.

 

I should probably butt out from here on, as i won't be able to attend either  :P

Hi guys. It is with great sadness that I cannot attend this years July swap. I apologise for the late notice. Bigchamp also asked me to remove his name from the list.
Hope to catch you all in December

Seems we're dropping like flies at the mortein factory! I too have been given the word; too many family events and interstate travel June/July. So unfortunately I'm dropping out. Though I've been given a firm nod for december so I guess all is not lost.

I'm beginning to think that the tyranny of distance is at play here.

 

Given the rapidly dwindling numbers, I'm wondering if this is actually a good time to call a halt & pull the pin early, rather than avoid a fizzer with not enough hands to make it work on the brewing/catering.

 

Thoughts?

I will almost certainly do my usual late withdrawal.

 

I'm sure I will get the brew done in time but - yes the distance is a bit tyranical for me

 

So I will probably be a non attending swapper again if I can

Should we start a new list of who's still keen on going? I'm not 100% sure what I'm doing yet.

I hear it's moving into an old bunnings building so there should be plenty of room!
