    G&g Artisanale #4

    Bloody Boilover!

    I haven't brewed in any way, shape or form since April this year and decided to at least get the stocks up for the heavier summer drinking season. Enter the TCB Wetpak I won in the recent The Country Brewer raffle (thanks Shawn). There I was doing my first "kit & bit" brew in almost 3 years...

    Hop Monster Ipa

    Ok, so it's time I did myself a highly hopped beer. This is a first for me inspired by several awesome IPAs recently. I'm going to use the hop mixing method whereby I'll weigh the 3 varieties and mix them all together. At each addition I'll add the appropriate mass of the mix. What do you think...

    Nasa Burner Leaking Gas

    As a follow up to a post I made in the "Nasa Burner Jet Size" thread, I found out that there wasn't any bung in the outlet end of the braided hose to start with. I decided to get use some teflon tape for the threads as I suspected that's where the leak was - well, the leak is actually from the...

    I managed to score 2 fridges on eBay yesterday and today - one fridge/freezer combo which will become my serving/conditioning and yeast/hop storage vessel, the other number which has no freezer will become the fermenting chamber. I can finally put all of my kegs to proper use :beer:

    Millipore "sterile" Filters

    I purchased a Millipore 'sterile' filter and 2 micron SS stone on Saturday for aerating my wort prior to pitching my yeast. Unbeknownst to me, I managed to pitch my yeast without airstone aeration. The wort trickles in from my CFWC so this at least adds some aeration, but I bought the...

I've searched the forums, but can't find an answer. According to JJ Palmer, apparent attenuation can...

    Recently a group of guys from my car club visited the "U-Brew-It" crowd in Geelong to create some homebrew. Attached is a picture of the fermenting room... imagine the music emanating from all those airlocks. Magic. I have no affiliation with UBI blah blah blah...
