    KegLand Questions and Answers

    Woke up this morning to multiple emails/texts about this. No, Kegland haven't just whacked my name on their own recipes. Kee approached me and asked if I'd be interested in creating some recipes for KegLand. I agreed and these are my own recipes that I tweaked to use their ingredients. I've...

    Worm farms. Basically a flower pot with the saucer used as a lid to keep birds out.

    My first crack at a 3 sisters planting. Corn, climbing beans and pumpkin. 1 week between the pictures. Not too shabby.

    For sale - Hop rhizomes $10

    3 doses of glyphosate and 1 dose of triclopyr (tree killer) fixed it good. This is what I dug out.

    DrSmurto GA

    I brew a hoppy mild at 3% abv max, quite a bit different to the GA recipe. It's in the recipeDB. I'll have a look for it later if you're interested.

    Centennial or Victoria.

    Fairly confident the Victoria rhizomes I am selling are the original Victoria. I first planted them 2009/10 and others had been growing before me. As far as I am aware, no one is buying and selling Vic Secret rhizomes. Confusing though. That said if you want loquat/apricot in your beer then...

    Did anyone see the new beer with shipwrecked yeast?

    Tasted a few beers made using the cultured version of this yeast. Definitely had a Belgian character. The strain is in the culture collection at the AWRI.

    Buying: Hop Rhizomes based in WA

    I have Victoria rhizomes dug up and ready to go. I'm in SA so you already know you'll be paying Quarantine fees. I'm happy to do the paperwork and comply with the restrictions, I did it successfully last year. Also look up 'Hop Swap' on Facebook which is a WA group. I send them several shipments...

    For sale - Victoria hop rhizomes

    Down to the 1 variety now, Victoria (not Vic Secret). I describe it as adding a loquat type flavour to your beer, I have heard it described as apricot and drinking my latest batch of rye golden ale using Victoria hops I can see how that description works. $15 each plus $12 express postage for...
