      What to bottle for Vic Case Swap. Draught from keg needs a week cold chill pre transfer. BoPils? Karingalager? Vic Case Swap July Stout?

        I'd vote Stout or Tooths.
        Fwiw, i'll probably submit an Aussie Bitter. So it might be interesting to compare the finer differences between ours & DJ's 059 Bitters.

        WLP802 Czech Budejovice Lager. 2nd brew onto the whole yeast cake I usually don't do that but overpitching makes for great crisp Lagers.

      No mashing, no sparging, no boiling, no chilling. Still I managed to spend 5+ hours doing brewing stuff on a rainy windy day.

        It's become one of the pleasures of brewing for me. There's always something to do. Never, not once, have I gone out to the brewery and sat around wishing for something to do. When I started back in after a 15 year break I committed myself to cleaning, "Boy, if you can't get into cleaning, find another hobby." It's made it much more enjoyable, weirdly. That and an ace pair of gumboots.

      Bitsa recipe greats. Only imposible to reproduce. Bummer. I have this Imperial Stout thing made of home canned leftover assorted worts and total mungrel mix of ingredients and it is soooo good. Yet imposible to reproduce another one. Oh well.

        2014 Hallertauer Mittelfrueh so I guess its just the lesser storability of that type. Tested Altbier with old hops compared to new. Big difference. The old hops taste stale, astringent and smell a little off.

        Very big difference storing cool and storing sub-zero. I also have old hops, but they smell as fresh as the day I put them in the freezer

      You know your on good track when you pull apart your ball valve of your keggle and that chocolate brown stain muck inside smells like yummy concentrated malt.

        Back in my day, a probe was a probe, you know? The problem with probes these days is that they need special attention, not a walk through the snow to get to school without gloves or shoes or underpants. In fact......

        With a whimper. I realise after I shouldn't have used the word probe. The sensor! All of a sudden I cant calibrate it. Trying in the 7 solution its reading 8.5 followed by WRNG!
        Its farked isn't it? I think I got more than 12 months out of it and now I know how to mash right.
