    At last, a hobby that saves money!

    My contribution is having a chuckle at the ridiculous concept that homebrewing is a budget conscious way of enjoying your favourite beer (or any beer for that matter). If you ignore equipment costs then yes, brewing your own beer is quite cheap. However, I can tell you though from experience...

    RIP Pistol Patch

    I also haven’t logged on here for some time but saw this post on the post summary email that gets sent out. Big thanks to Pistol Patch and the awesome and detailed BIAB guides that he wrote all those years ago. The way I learned to brew was to read, read and re-read those guides while trawling...

    Mead starting gravity

    I plugged your recipe into the GotMead recipe calculator and your OG should be around 1.090.

You will need to warm the honey first to dissolve it into your water and don’t add it all at...

    Water stabilizer pH 5.2

    Homebrew Competition - Australian Regional Homebrew Champs

    You are quite right, that is what the OP is stating. The implication being that other comps are not fair and equitable and do not have clear rules. That is how they alone can create the ‘leading platform’ right?

    It's right there in bold text, the implication of this statement is clear.

    Homebrew Competition - Australian Regional Homebrew Champs

    To be fair other comps also have clear rules and I’m not exactly sure how they are not also fair. Perhaps concentrate on running your own comp successfully rather than slinging baseless shite at others.

    A queued judging system was used this year using judging pairs. Depending on the size of the category up to 4 pairs of judges were used.

    Homebrewing Podcast Guest

    I think you can get someone who works part time at your LHBS on your podcast so long as their voice is good for radio (a face for radio is optional) and have something interesting to offer. I just listened to a recent Beer is a Conversation podcast with a guy from a flavourings/extract/purer...
