Surely these 7g hop additions don't do anything?! I've gotten used to brewing IPAs I think! 15/3/14

      Guy at work has just started brewing, went straight to AG, 3V 50L, digital refractometers, digital PH scales. Hope he succeeds, but if not, looking forward to buying his gear on the cheap!

        He's spent about $1800 on gear. I hope he has done the right thing!

      I can't find Aussie home brewer on tapatalk, is it because I'm not in Australia?

        You need to search as

        I had trouble by not writing it exactly as I dont think it corrects its own search

      STC-1000 wired up. Turning the gas on while I test it because I'm so confident in my wiring abilities.

      Small question: How come hops are kept in the fridge at the HBS but people also sell them online and post them (unrefrigerated)?

        Oh, so they're good for a few days then? That's longer than I thought.

        The longer you keep them in the fridge (or freezer) the better, but a lot of people are willing to sacrifice a few days exposure for a discounted rate in hops. I doubt a few days at "reasonable" temps would do too much harm.

        ^and by that, fresh is best, but if they're going to sit around, might as well be in a fridge or freezer.

        you used to be able to buy a sort of platicy, rubbery sheet (about the size of a slice of bread) that was great for opening tight bottle lids from kmart. about $1. pretty sure theyre still around. ive had one for years. helped me no end with a bunch of shit like that
