    ebay and gum tree finds

    Hehe I am sure, but, there are many things that go on that are illegal and 99.9% of it is gotten away with, cops are just glorified tax collectors these days. Said advert might get pulled by Gumtree eventually for that reason, but, that is not enforcing the law, just blocking the advert...

    Hilary or Donald

    Be nice if Schwarzenegger could run, but he cannot, have to be US born to be president. I'd have voted for him, though he is a republican he was very progressive and did good things in California whilst Governor.

    Hilary or Donald

    Yeah, it is a worry when his marketing people take away his access to his own Twitter account, yet now he controls access to nuclear weapons. Regardless, the USA is financially bankrupt, just not acknowledged as such. His statements on building a wall was total BS, he cannot start an...

    Hilary or Donald

    I really am not sure why so many Australians are shocked at this. We saw evidence of something similar in our recent election with One Nation. The US populace are deeply disenfranchised with the current political elite that have done nothing for the people and are just sick of being fleeced. So...

    Pale Ales are so hot right now: Carlton Pale

    I got to try a pint of this last week and agree, for a megaswill version of something that is trying to retain some of its own customers, its a good product. I think I'd buy it over Carlton Draught in just about any pub that did not have something better on tap. That said, I didn't buy a second...

    Moving from overseas, what gear to bring/not to bring

    Yeah, when moving from the USA I was told just to wash stuff, they are more worried about grass/dirt, I had to pay to get my big CubCadet ride on steam cleaned, even though I had it professionally cleaned before packing it into the container. So if there is just dust on it, pressure wash it and...

    Worst equipment purchases

    Feel like since I brewed a few FWK's that all my all grain gear seems a waste, FWKs are just so damn easy and the quality is as good as anything I can do, though, much less variable of course. G&G FWK less than $40 when on sale, which though more expensive than I can make it for, saves me hours...

    Favorite hefeweizen yeast / method.

    Most pre-cursors for esters are formed by the yeast during the lag time, so I use a single 3068 pack in 23 litres of wort, OG somewhere near 1050 no starter. You don't want weizen finishing sweet, should be lower FG, so don't use any form of caramalt in it. I use a 50% wheat 50% pils mix. For...
