    NSW Mid Year Case Swap 2017 Recipe + Tasting

    14. gone brewing - Fly Blown Belgian - 6.6%, Got a pleasant banana and bubble gum aroma when I cracked this colder than I probably should have. Though after a long couple of days, I didn't want to wait. Well balanced beer. Getting a bit of the bubblegum flavour while it is cold, along with a...

    12. MikeyR - Cali Uncommon Tasting this after the previous beer is a tough act to follow. I'm not sure what to add to what has already been mentioned? I got a lot of funk on the nose too. I initially thought there may be something wrong with the bottle but that concern was quickly reversed...

    9. n87 - Stinkin' Pom IPA, ~7.2% - RTD Nice beer. How did it fair in the competition you mentioned? Would assume the judges would expect a significant increase in hop aroma and some more bitterness to tick the English IPA box? Not that it matters, it is nice beer in its own right and doesn't...

    2. Paulyman - Coffee Amber Ale (Drink after June) Nothing bad to say about this brew. Getting a nice complimentary coffee along with some berry like dark fruit. I have to admit, I was expecting a chocolate/caramel tirra massu vibe initially... guiltily call it a bias towards my own coffee...

    Looking for a sour dough starter

    Has anyone used a bit of Acidulated malt in their sour dough starter mix? I've got a little bit left which will be useful in my next batch but thinking I might add the powder from the bag to blend with some traditional organic flour/water etc...

    Competition advice for newbies

    If you want to enter for feedback and advice, it is an ok tool. A better tool is joining a club and sharing beers with a wide range of brewers. I don't often brew for competitions. But the few times I have, I've done well. If you want to win medals, the best advice I can give is doing a BJCP...

    11. shacked - Dunkelryeizen, 5.8% This beer is very well made. Carbonation spot on. Nice white fluffy head. Dark to ruby amber in colour. Happy phenolics in the aroma, slight acidity on the nose too but not bad at all. Wasn't too cloudy until I tried to get as much extras from the bottle into...
