    What are you listening to

    Hey guys, My band Traumasaur has its first gig tomorrow night, Thursday 24th September, at Moshpit in Newtown. We're up first at 8pm, followed by Kontrasto, Commodore Charlie, and Avalanche. It's gonna be a fun, loud night! We've filled the house already, but there's a livestreaming link ($12)...

    The Corona Virus (COVID 19) Thread

    Lol, yeah seen a few posts similar. Rainbows, and cute puppydog gifs will save us all, right? Definitely some massive fucktard behaviour that comes out in humanity, as shown on the news. Try your best to not join in with them. As Buddha said, "Don't be a malaka".

    What are you listening to

    Loving the new Tool album. I class it as chillout music. It's stuff you can put on for a mundane task at work and just get things done.

    What’s your bad brewing habit?

    No temperature control. Probably the worst of the lot, but I roll with it. Saison's in summer, that's my motto.

    Beer motivated trip to Belgium... anyone been there?

    Definitely get to Brugges if you have time. As well as the beer and generally getting lost wandering around the old town, a tour of the flanders fields and all the WWI stuff is worth it.

    Leffe Creme Caramels

    Had guests over yesterday so I made up these creme caramels from Merc's Cooking With Beer book. I used my 8.9% belgian pale ale I recently brewed. One for the dish, one for the chef. Damn they were beautiful. You could really taste the beer in the sauce, almost like pouring fresh wort over one...

    Damn Good Stout recipes

    Here's my notes for my current Oyster Stout - it's a double batch based on my previous recipe. One thing that's important, buy fresh oysters - I'd bought some last week while up at Pt Stephens, ate the oysters, brought the shells home and stupidly left them on the garage bench. When I went to...

    Damn Good Stout recipes

    Sorry Phoney, A 4 months late reply here. I've got my 3rd oyster stout planned - a double batch. I base it on a dry stout recipe. I add a dozen shells to the boil at 60min. First time I did it I added the meat as well for the 60min, and ate them afterwards. They weren't great. The beer is bloody...

    Mould in brew, any chance of saving ?

    As long as the hydrometer samples taste fine I'd continue as normal.

    'battle Of The Toucans'

    Haven't brewed since November, due to life getting in the way, and a low care factor. But my stocks are empty, first time in many years. I have some grain ready to go for a brew, but in the meantime, I picked up the gear for something similar. Toucan Coopers Stout/Dark, 500g brown sugar, 30-40g...

    Brew your own microbreweries and their place in the craft beer scene

    Honestly if someone can make an epic beer out of malt extract, hats off to them.

    Thanks Mongey. It was a fun gig. Great bands. If anyone gets a chance, go check out Battlesnake. Epic triple guitar solo stuff.

    What are you listening to

    Hey guys, If anyone in Sydney is up for seeing some live bands this coming friday, I'm playing my first gig with The Dead Set. I'm nervous as hell, especially as it's been about 21 years between bands, but I'll be rockin my hardest, so come along for a beer and headbang and say hi! It's $10 at...

    How many of you get the 10c a bottle or can?

    It's a shite scheme, but f##k it. I'll make the most of it. Every bottle & can goes round the side in a tub. When it's full, I take it down to the local carwash that does it by hand. So far I've reclaimed $20.

    RADFEST - Bald Faced Stag

    Just a reminder this gig is coming up. 7 bands, $10. good beers and schnitzels (well, I actually haven't tried them myself, but I will!) Come along, have a mosh, heckle a shite guitarist. If I hear any negativity, I know an AHBer is somewhere in the house. :party:

    How Much Did You Brew In 2017

    When you can't remember what you brewed, you know it wasn't enough. Probably brewed about 8 times? Got a couple of saisons brewed before christmas arrived. That's the main thing. Brewing's on a bit of a hiatus at the moment. I wouldn't say I've given up, as I love creating my own beer. But my...

    RADFEST - Bald Faced Stag

    2.2km is a good stagger home, Phoney. - should be able to cancel out a schooner.
