Hey would you class 4 business days for delivery via fastway acceptable for an address that is less then 3hrs drive from you guys?


If I had know it would be that delayed I would have gotten my order shipped to my work address 

In Topic: Braumeister 20l For Sale Melbourne

17 January 2017 - 02:14 PM

What I would be inclined to do Lozbrewer is keep your Braumeister, in March there is a 50l Robobrew/Grainfather look alike coming on the market with step mash program and pump, get that one or get the 40l version to give to your brother $532 delivered. If you ever wanted to brew a heavier beer the 40l takes 8kg of grain.   

More details?

In Topic: what do you wish you'd known?

2nd hand kegs can be a pain in the ass so try not to buy sight unseen (I got mine delivered) after replacing all the seals and the lids and the posts I should have just brought new to start with :P which I will be doing going forwards. Also the fact that after many many cleans I can still not get the smell of softdrink syrup out of them


I currently have 4 19L ball lock cornys


Buy decent taps, I have a Perlick 650ss and have just ordered some of the flow controlled intertaps as I thought I would give them a go, Would have preferred the perlicks but the gf said no as I have a wedding to save for :s ($83 vs $120 complete isn't that much difference except to her :s)


Tread tape everything and use good tube, I use 5mm Inner Dia & 8mm Outer Dia from cheeky peak

In Topic: Stereotypes: Brewers have beards

But the question is not which came first "the chicken or the egg" but the "beer or the beard"

Definitely the beer in my case, it helps to ease the noise from my GF complaining when I do grow a beard

In Topic: Coopers real ale kit + bits

14 January 2017 - 07:07 AM

What nice find about the Coopers real ale kit, I was going to start my own thread to ask this question.
Coopers label has written SG or OG = 1038 using the coopers brew enhancer #2

However my brew was SG 1050. Which is 6.28% potential alcohol content

Coopers kit.
250g light dry malt from local homebrew store
750g dextrose from local homebrew store

Would the light dry malt and dextrose from a LHB be fresher and stronger then the packet mix?
Or is there any other reasons I ended up with a higher SG then the label?

Brew enhancer 2 has maltodextrin in it as well about 250g from memory, youve probably added an extra 250g of dextrose :P
