    Beginner in Perth looking for advice for equipment, supplies and BIAB

    TWOC in Bibra Lake offer good advice, have lots of equipment, grains, partial grain kits etc etc. My gear I got from kmart like others have said stock pots and stainless sieve, some things from eBay measuring beakers and cleaning products. I'm still relatively green at brewing but glad to start...

    Off taste possible infection?

    I suspected from what I have read it was an infection. Although thought maybe with adding the stee pac directly could have caused it

    Off taste possible infection?

    I brewed a Black Rock dry lager using dextrose and thought I'd try adding the stee-pac straight in the fermenter. Apart from a really high IG which was probably a false reading, all was good. After a week added an unsure weight of tetnang hops that I got from a brewery and froze. Admittedly I...

    There's a place on Hampton road Fremantle that used to sell beers going out of date. Can't remember the name but similar deals could be had. Picked up imported Dutch lagers for no more than $40 a carton. That's a great price for Sierra Nevada

    TV show about English beers and pubs?

    I've watched two episodes and quite enjoy it. He talks to brewer's about their ingredients and you get to see some interesting brews from across America worth a watch.

    Various temp reading fermenter

    I'm not looking forward to summer, my shed was about 32 degrees the other day. I'm glad I've got a fridge in the shed for fermenting in so I can keep temps constant. I also use the brita filters from big w have two 8litre jugs that I use and think makes a difference.

    Aluminium pots.

    I'm wrong and happy to admit that. It's only of concern in non anodised aluminium which isn't used in cookware

    Aluminium pots.

    Just a quick Google will give you some basic information regarding this which is mainly for highly acid contents but I can provide scholarly articles if you want further evidence. Maybe I'm paranoid but I prefrr stainless where I can as it is far stronger. Personal preference here

    I'm wary of cooking/brewing anything in aluminium because of the leeching
