      BIL finally fulfilled his quest to drink himself to death. Veteran of the Rhodesia/Zimbabwe independence war. None of them are good, however small.

      Two dogs bitten by a Tiger snake this arvo. There goes the best part of $3K in Vet's bills. Just got home & cracked a much-needed beer.

        Just because it is used in mass produced beer dosnt make it a bad hop. I have used it in a few pale ales that worked great.

        Cheers, Mardoo! I really liked that beer too!! Got one in the fridge for tonight ;-)
        I thought PoR was a great hop - very distinct solid bitterness, nice spicy fruitiness. And Yob definitely needs have a go at his homie PoR! Would def love to have some growing here, but have no space :(

        Bad wrap because of mega swill. But I pushed my bro to put it in his CSA clone for authenticity sake and I really like it. Considering making a lawnmower beer with it. If I can find it.

        Can vouch for superpride being a good, clean but pretty much flavourless bitterer.

        30 Tons of Hydraulic muscle. No way I could've done that by hand without a lot of Wheat beer. All tucked-away in weatherproof bays today. Now for the next 70 tons that's laying about the place....Then there's the Party to burn the stuff I couldn't be arsed with...(After fire restrictions are lifted!).

        On the cards is to rip everything apart & clean it out. Balloons for the obvious apertures & got some canvas that SWMBO has agreed to sew together into a cover for the entire rig in time for my Birthday (will also keep the dust out). Double-Yay!

      Decided to break-down the new brew rig for transport (we need the milk crates etc.). No more brewing for me until the sparky & plumber are done. Still have to bottle the case-swap porter before the fridge goes up the hill. Lucky I've got a few cubes to play with..
