    Whats In The Glass (commercial)

    I recall the first time I had Fred was at Murray's brewery with a plate of spicy buffalo wings and blue cheese sauce. In that context it was brilliant. Cut through the grease and spiciness really nicely with a hoppy freshness. Have to stay, as a standalone beer, whilst it was still good, it...

    Whats In The Glass (commercial)

    The lineup from my service club's Beerfest last weekend (plus a Munich Dunkel of my own brewing not pictured). The deal is you have to drink all 10 beers before you're allowed to go back to any of them. Was a good night. Side note, the stein in the background has Miss Pinky in it, great...

    Keezer temp set point

    I run mine at 4.5 deg with a 1 deg lag. My probe is in a small plastic sealed test-tube filled with water and sitting in a small hollowed out piece of timber that is in turn magnetically attached to the keezer wall. It sits on the keezer wall about 3/4 of the way down. I was running a simple...

    Keg o-rings

    So this thread answers half of my question, keg lid seal sorted. Does anyone have a link for where to get the 2 little nubs that go over the ends of the lid lever? See pic to compensate for my shitty description.

    Commercial Fridge: Yes or No?

    I'll give it a go.

    Commercial Fridge: Yes or No?

    I use one almost exactly the same, picked it up reconditioned off a fridgey mate for $200 (cost of parts), he'd gotten it for free not working. Upside, cheap, lots of space. But, I use it as a ferment fridge, not a kegerator. Downsides, must be outside because they're very noisy (not to...

    Keezer - ten tap bandit

    Following with interest. My keezer build was a great time. I admire your ambition, I struggle to keep my 4 keg/3 tap keezer stocked with full kegs, let alone that many. There's never enough brew days...

    A man, his wife and their toddler go to NZ...

    Sorry, just saw this. I guess I got really busy and stopped the updates, seems so long ago now. The short version, picking up from where I left of, is Queenstown really turned on the weather for us being beautifully sunny and warm during the days (I thought so anyway, the wife was still rugged...

    Lagering and bottle priming

    Thanks Gents, Kaiserben's options probably sounds closest to what I had in mind, I'll give it a go.

    Lagering and bottle priming

    So ordinarily when I brew a lager, I will rack off primary into a keg, put a little CO2 on top, seal it and then store at 1-2 deg C for several months before force carbonating and serving, works a treat. My question is, if I wanted to bottle the same lager and bottle condition it, would you...

    Alewife's and Witches.

    Interesting indeed. So but for the snazzy hat, I could be tried for witchcraft the next time the church whips up a good old fashioned Inquisition?

    Whichever comes out of your fridge first when I place my next order. It will be a couple of weeks before I get in to the lagers, need to get my Belgian Golden Strong brewed first along with some other general consumption brews. Lager runs tend to test my ability to keep three taps running at...

    A quick survery for those who have never entered a homebrew comp

    Whilst I've been in one comp, points 2 and 4 ring true for me. Many comps have limited notice periods (at least to those not with their finger on the pulse) which makes brewing schedules difficult. Drop off points make life simpler and allow a little extra time that postage doesn't.
