  • Satisfying when you brew 3 cubes of wort, finish an oxygenation SS wand and pitch 4 cubes-worth of fermenting in a weekend.
    Spinnin` up a 2013 lager yeast!

    It was completely dead! Gave it 48 hrs on stir plate and gravity did not budge. RIP vegemite yeast, although it already was.

    48 hours is not long enough for visible signs if a small live sample in a larger starter, in my experience. Not saying it wasn't mutated, though.

    I picked the wrong beer I want to ferment to be trying to bring suck old slurry back to life. Patience was not an option this time as brewing for a bucks party. It will be scoffed by drunkards so a healthy dose of dry lager yeast will suffice!
    1,000 posts and no warning points or ban, surely a first? What do I win???

    Only if you get rid if your shiny taps and keg fridge and turn half the food fridge into a keg fridge and serve only out of picnic taps.

    you get to come out and admit you don't rehydrate your yeast..
    love finding out you need to calibrate your refractometer before every brew... here I was thinking I was getting good efficiency all along...

    You what now? Mine still reads 0 for water after god knows how long

    Denial is the best efficiency Nath!

    Haha, yea when I bought it I calibrated the scale to 0.000 with distilled water. Thought that was it "calibrated"... talking with Spiesy, he has found it changes over time. Got home that day and checked mine with distilled water and it read 0.004 :S

    Think denial is the most logical suggestion I've heard =D
    BIG, BIG bottling / brew day on Saturday, 5 batches to bottle and 5 batches to ferment!

    Been a while for me and galaxy, looking forward to it. Just brewing my swap beer tonight.. Not sure which cube it'll be yet ;)

    The question is whether to balls up and dry hop it as well!?!?!
    successful Hefeweizen got kegged last night using first liquid yeast WLP300, bananarama!

    Nice, just kegged mine using SN Kellerweis bottle harvested yeast. This yeast had a really funky(not bad just unusual) smell the first couple of days but smelt great after that.
    All this keg pickups, cube and bucket sales is going mental... I might actually home brew one day!

    Just move to Tasmania, there's nothing of that sort here. Mail order and use the spare time to brew.

    haha I like that idea LRGI !
    Lost two parcels I sent to Shenzen... TWO! Maybe I'll try the old delay delay delay, oh sorry 45 days PayPal claim window has expired tactic the Chinese eBay sellers employ.. taste of their own medicine?
    Need a new appliance supplier, wish they were easy to find.

    Did I arrive late to this party? This is what happens when i don't check in for a few days.
    Cmon` Saturday, brew day with the house to myself, tunes and cold home brew!

    DJ_L3ThAL
    DJ_L3ThAL

    mine was developing a nice krausen this morning :)
    DJ_L3ThAL
    DJ_L3ThAL
    think mine brewed overnight, was only 700mL wort which I put about 200mL slurry (unrinsed) into, tasted clean but biter from the hops that were not rinsed out... pitched it into the FV this morning so fingers crossed =D
    Aussie ale keg blew sat night at 2am, tapped first DSGA without cleaning the lines (blasphemy!)... WOW, very impressed, might have to clean lines for next weekend to give the DSGA the respect it deserves!
    refractometer arrived, only 8 working days!!! note to self, don't "play" with refractometer in open plan office, women will think you're perving on them.

    We've witnessed the birth of a new p0rn category, the homebrewing refracto-voyeur!

    I stand at my kitchen window, eye glued to the site, as my hand furiously adjusts my refractometer, not thinking of the girl sunning herself in her tiny yellow bikini in the penthouse of the apartment next door.
