    Where did my beautiful taste go?

    I have just done a side by side with a double decocted Oktoberfest, one bottle conditioned and one bottle filled from keg, not cpbf'ed but slow poured. Taste wise, the bottle conditioned has about double the flavour of the comparison. I thought it could be either oxidation or a sub prime bottle...

    Sodium Percarbonate Surfactant?

    Sodium Metasiicate replaced TSP in cleaning products as it contains no Phosphates. TSP (Tri Sodium Phosphate) contributed to an increase of blue/green algae in our waterways. I use both at work and TSP is definitely the stronger cleaner of the two. Painters also use it to etch a previously...

    Removing Black Japan

    You start by cross cutting the boards on a 45 angle with a drum sander using 24, or 13 grit paper, depending on how bad the boards are. This will level the boards ready for sanding. This will also get rid of most of the black japan. On the edges, be prepared to use a lot of discs. Try to get...

    Son Of A ...

    I'm considering purchasing a new, larger bottle in the New Year and keep my smaller one as a backup or make a portable sulo system. I read a few months ago that Supagas is offering a fully owned 6kg bottle for $150, with $50 refill. I called the Adelaide office, and found out it isn't offered...

    New Toy Drum Smoker

    I have been practicing smoking ribs over the past few months with my UDS. It's been a challenge, the first few batches came out a bit tough. Reason being temperature under the bottom grill was 10deg cooler than the top. I was aiming to smoke at 120deg, but the top grill was reaching 130+. The...

    New Toy Drum Smoker

    I have just finished making my UDS. Currently on the seasoning run, but had to throw in a few snapper cutlets and a few scotch filets!!!! Very easy build. Got a 44 from work, which had an internal bladder. Cut that out easily with a stanley knife. Built a fire in the drum to burn off the paint...

    Free Keg. How To Open It.

    You could use a dremmel, or similar product (some brands go for $20) and use a heavy duty cutting disc, about 3 should do. Very noisy job, so use the usual protection. Clean up with a grinding attachment. Try to get an old pot lid to use as your guide leaving enough room for the lid to seat...
