  • Anyone know where I can find Sour Beers down the Mornington Peninsula? Heading to Blairgowrie for a few days over the cup weekend.

    yes mister, your in bigger trouble
    Just finished listening to 'Tasting Beer' - Randy Mosher. I found it very interesting, especially the historical parts and the food pairing. A physical copy would be great to have on hand.

    Audible.
    Good Narrator too, not like the current book I'm listening too, the guy sounds like Keanau Reeves with an occasional shrill whistle on the end of his 'S's
    Reckon the ol liver deserves a rest for a few days. Four of those 'unplanned nights that turn into big ones' in a row and I'm on the waters for a bit.

    Yep, I had the best intentions but then a mate dropped in Tuesday arvo with some IPA's..
    Relaxing with a few Guinness's tonight. Big drive tomorrow then camping for 3 days. You absolutely cannot go camping without beers. ...and Gin.

    Camping trip cancelled, Main cable in the Jayco Dove snapped (in the driveway thank ****) causing the roof to come down. Can't get a new cable till Monday at the earliest. Ah well, got Beers & Gin and the beach is at the end of my street.
    Wives can be expensive at times, I'm glad I've only got the one.

    I agree with Malt Junkie! It's not the wives that are the problem
    If you need a steak knife to eat your steak with then you've done something wrong.

    That's why I never let mrs warra cook the steaks. I cook hers, do mine for a short time at the end, so hers is poo ,sorry, brown all though, mine is red/pink. Beautiful.

    Phase one of the brewery build has began! Nearly finished building a loft in the garage to store all the wife's crap so I can have some space to brew and play tunes on my Strat.
    Been drinking beer and watching my hops gently sway in the breeze for the last hour, it's right on Par with drinking beer in front of the fire.

    if you have enough beer the hops will gently sway with no breeze.
    Just poured myself a glass of Milk, thought I could do with a night off the Homies.
    Just reopened a pack of Mandarina Bavaria I first opened 3 weeks ago (not purchased from any current AHB sponsor/affiliate) in preparation of a dry hop addition & got an unmistakable whiff of cheese, might be my storage methods but I've never had the "Cheese" smell before. Is Mandarina more prone to cheese than other varieties perhaps?

    I store my hops frozen without vacuum bagging for months at a time....

    First time I've ever bought Mandarina Bavaria, could have been a bad batch but I've never had issues with hops from this particular store. Ah well, now I know what oxidised hops smell like.
    Had my first sour beer the other day, I'm intrigued. Can't seem to get it out of my head.

    well, when you get your sour recipe sorted you'll be able to aptly name it Kylie

    I've had two sour beers, first n last.
    After a malt that'll add a biscuity/bready hint to the Weyermann pale & Summit SMaSH (US-05) that I've just carbed. Any suggestions?

    What style of beer are you using the Melanoidin in BDD?
    American PA's, English style Ales?
    Black Devil Dog

    IPAs, Amber Ales and Oktoberfest/Vienna Lagers. I've been using about 5 - 7% in all these styles and it really stands out, that's why I suggested to start lower.

    Perfect:) Thanks
    ...I thought when I began All Graining I'd follow recipes and stop wasting time experimenting with ingredients.
    I can't help myself :/
    Stan Hieronymus speaks about hops in the latest Beersmith podcast, quite an interesting listen. If I had a dollar for every time Stan says "Um" and Charlie Bamforth says "Vigorous" I'd be a rich man.
    Dad just had a glass of my AG DSGA and hated it, mum had a taste and frowned at it too. Keep drinking your Aldi 'Storm' and leave me alone ya carrnts!

    5 A.G brews in and loving it, got my profile/volumes just about sorted in beersmith mobile. The proof will be in the cubes... of D.S.G.A that are amassing on the shed floor. Need another Ferm fridge!

    Finished cleaning up after another brew & enjoying my first ever All Grain beer today, it tastes pretty reasonable considering I missed all the Vol's & gravity etc.
