Anyone know where I can find Sour Beers down the Mornington Peninsula? Heading to Blairgowrie for a few days over the cup weekend. 3/11/17

      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.

      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.

        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.

      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.

      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?

        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.

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

        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.

      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.
