    Simple Home Made Water Distiller

    A word of caution with distilled water. Once had a job as a commercial dive assistant, and one job we had was to dive in the distilled water tanks in the steel works. The BHP man told us not to drink the "pure" water as it was considered dangerous to do so as distilled water will leech out...

    Sail & Anchor Ipa

    Might be due to turnover? Located the IPA beer engine the next day, around the other side of the bar, cricket was on, could be drinking muddy water and enjoying it no point moving. No major faults and enjoyed it more than the Brass Monkey, enjoyed repeat pints. The Blonde, a tame Belgium wheat...

    Sail & Anchor Ipa

    Had an IPA at the Sail and Anchor today, no diacetyl that my poor palate could detect. Also had a pint of the Brass Monkey Stout from the beer engine, which was a pure delight. :chug: off to the Mad Monk now.

    Brisbane Beer Luncheon

    Thanks to Ian and Matt for putting on a great lunch, and thanks to Ross for letting us know about it (and Batz for the lift) not to mention a few starters from Ross's awesome bar. Looking forward to the next lunch. Bright Ale and mango chicken are a match made in heaven.

    I picked up a little pond pump from Bunnings for 7.95, fill the cleaned Keep Cold mash tun with ice and water (15 litres approx) , found it needed elevation to pump through the immersion chiller and back into it'self. Kick the ice water in at around the 30-40 mark and recirculate.
