    Bottling beer thats been carbed with Nitro?

    Hi guys, Just wondering if anyone has kegged and carbed up a beer using nitro and then managed to bottle using a CPBF with that nitro beer? Im thinking of buying a small nitro setup but wait to bottle a few beers to give to mates etc?

    Strange taste in beer from wheat

    Hi Brewers, Has anyone ever ended up with a strange sort of floury or paper taste in a beer where they have used flaked wheat or even wheat malt?

    Oxidation Problem

    Ive never had an oxidation issue before, that I could detect anyway. I just recently brewed a stone and wood clone and every sample I tried tasted like wet cardboard. My son actually noticed it as well. At first I thought it was the yeast still in suspension but after cold crashing it’s still...

    CPBF stem too long

    I brought this CPBF from Kegland and tried to use it tonight but the stem is too long for small bottles or even Grolsch bottles. If I move the rubber stopper down it doesnt seal as its internal hole diameter is wide enough to suit the top tube. To be honest I cant see what the point of the top...

    Using co2 bottles in different locations?

    hi guys what’s the best way to setup my co2 bottle and regulator so I can disconnect it from my kegerator and take it into the brewery to pressure transfer into a keg from the fermenter? Are those duotight fittings designed to connect and disconnect regularly?

    Supplier of an accurate thermometer.

    Hi brewers, Anyone know where I can get an accurate thermometer to calibrate everything else I use in my brewery? I had a good digital one that I calibrated in iced water at 0° but I’m not sure I trust it at boiling temp as it’s out by a few degrees. It shows 98°.

    Good micro-breweries to visit in Sydney?

    Hi Brewers, Im heading to Sydney next weekend and keen to visit some micro breweries. Any suggestions for whats decent in and around the main CBD? Also are there any that we could perhaps jump on a ferry and head over to that would be within walking distance to where the ferry lands? Cheers
