    G'day Elz, did much change in your succeeding brews? (Only just got beer Smith, trying to work my way around it. Intense)

    Well, been a few weeks since brew 1, I finally got around to opening one or two. Working out in the remote areas, our gear gets stored in a permanent locker when we're off camp. Temperature controlled room. Bout 20° A work mate is interested in starting AG brewing so we waited top an extra week...

    Brewometer

    Awesome to see the brains trust is all over this! My 3cents (inflation, y'all), as someone who works away, this'll be awesome. Being able to track and time a brew will take it from messaging SWMBO every so often for a gravity/shifting fermenter into fridge* to just a "hey, can you flick the...

    Going to presume that isn't rust, that patina... surely? Or a case of 'ratrod on the outside BMW SS on the inside?

    Nah, while I'm not confident of much in these, sparkly, early days; the Robobrew holds its temp damn well. I actually had to struggle to get it down to the 65 I was after. Maybe...at a guess 10mins at closer to 71 with me stirring and pouring and such to get the temp to drop? And that was just...

    Interesting - pestered the girlfriend lady to take a few measures the last few days, gravity seems to have plateaued at 1000. :unsure: Which is rather low I would have thought, I'm still a week away from home, but she took multiple measures over the past few days. Isn't water 1000? hah

    crivens it's a cheeky bugger. Well. it's on it's pat malone until I get back to it. Shall ask herself to take a reading just for gigs, Project-defeat-The-Heat is pretty up there on the list. Err. and maybe run the same brew again with a more WA friendly yeast. Though Freo the last few days...

    Yeah, pretty much what I was thinking. I've gutted the brew fridge and worded up her ladyship on operation don't-suck-in-the-air-lock-when-moving-fermenter. I didn't have all the requisite parts to convert the fridge fully. Got it turned high and a temp probe in a glass of dihyrogen monoxide to...

    Gah! Forgot to give credit where due, can't edit the initial post it seems - Robobrew purchased from señor Andrew at BulkBrewing Supplies. A small business starting out. Polite and helpful chap. Kudos

    A spray bottle! strewth! Genius! I've got starsan and sodium met in sprays but not water. I did notice stirring brought the foam under control - after the fact.

    Fair to say, smells amazing. Has the GF on board now (keeps going to where the fermenter is for a whiff). Yeah, pretty much rite of passage for rookies to overanalyze and stress about it all. Figure I'll just ride that wave. Cheers

    Evening folks, :icon_cheers: hope you're bored, to be reading this, you probably have to be‽ Apologies if I'm putting this up in the wrong spot, wasn't sure if here of the welcome page. Can be moved...this will also not be overly serious. I'm too new to the sport for that to be the case. So...

    G'day from Freo

    It's come down a lot. Freo itself hasnt moved as much to buy. But because property is so low, it's a renters market. We're in a 2x2 townhouse for 450/w which is pretty decent. It's not big by anymeans, but tidy sized. Havent seen anything within the same distance to buy that I can afford, but...

    G'day from Freo

    I know what you mean, this Freo place, goes alright. I wont lie, despite who owns them - we did draw a circle on a map representing 20min walk to the Sail and Anchor, and only considered places within. They've been through more managers than I've counted in the time I've been coming to WA, but...

    G'day from Freo

    G'day folks, Getting back into brewing after only doing a few cans in the old days. Probably sourcing most equipment to get into AG in the next week or so. Moved to Freo only recently and found TWOC just down the road a way, handy that. And the Minister for War and Fun has decided she doesn't...
