    LiquorCraft / BrewCraft / Australia home brewing

    Gee, didn't expect there'd be such a decent saving doing it the eBay way. I'll definitely take advantage of that next time. Cheers for the heads up.

    Dry hopping

    Just bottled this batch after cold crashing for 2-3 days, was around 2-4 degrees through that time. I didn't look at it through clear glass, but noticed a lot of sediment at the bottom of the fermenter and seemed very clear in the bottle. Wasn't thinking of doing it but I'm glad I did, worked a...

    LiquorCraft / BrewCraft / Australia home brewing

    I didn't think to ask about swapping bits of the kit. I'm still new and that was the first shop I went to, to get my gear and start up. I was very impressed with the guy at the Richmond store, very friendly and good advice. I'm keen to try their Sierra Nevada IPA kit next.

    Dry hopping

    Hi all, I'm still new to this - excuse the dumb/overly cautious question. I have a brew on now which is nearly finished fermenting to which I'd added loose pellets earlier on - didn't think of the hop bag (doh!). So to help the bits sediment out, cold crashing is the way to go? I thought of...

    Hello AHB

    Thank you all for the welcome. I'm located in Hawthorn, and luckily have a home brew shop nearby. Thought about buying online but would rather establish a relationship with a local business. Will venture in there during the week. Ok maybe I was a little daft suggesting I'd save money. No doubt...

    Hello AHB

    Hi all, Taking up home brewing as the next hobby. Tried it once a few years back and but didn't really follow through. Studying science now, and having learned some chemistry and microbiology reckon I should give it another go. Keen to save some dosh along the way too and learn a bit more about...
