    Some serious christmas chocolates

    Well it's that time of year. One of my traditions at Christmas is making chocolates for my family. I don't do it every year but I try most years. I've done a few of the usuals. Liqueur chocolates, orange chocolate segments and soft centred chocolates. However... This year I decided on a treat...

    TSHBC 2014 Tas Results

    Over the weekend we held the first state qualifying competition for the AABC national competition that Tassie has ever had. It was the culmination of almost a year of work since the afternoon that Nick (that's BrewTas to you lot) and myself sat in his loungeroom and said "Let's have a state...

    Hey Sydney brewers Some of you may have read about a little project that I'm getting up and running in Tassie at the moment; A floor maltings for supply to craft brewers and home brewers alike.

    Hey guys So a few of you may know that I have been doing spec malts on a small scale as well as malting base malts for a few of the local home brewers in Tassie. Well the time has come for me to kick things up a notch. I am opening a small scale floor malting operation to supply home brewers...

    Time Frame for Chilling: A Musing.

    Dedicated to Dave70. Thought I'd kick this on off with a few of my thoughts. Note these are just my thoughts and understandings based on things I have read and are not necessarily all facts. I should also point out that my experience with no chill is fairly limited. This discussion should also...

    Big mash ph adjustment idead

    I've been doing some testing on mashing sorghum malt to try and get to the bottom of poor efficiency. I've done a few small mashes and have found that mash temperature ph is around 4.7. Punching the numbers into Ezy water calculator and trying to adjust with salts gives ppm values well above...

    Brown ale with Brett. To keep or not to keep?

    A few weeks ago I went to bottle my current brown ale. I opened the lid to discover some funk on the surface. Bugger. I thought I'd be clever and leave the last few inches in the bucket and bottle the rest and I would somehow keep the funk where it belongs. The 70s. How wrong I was. And not just...

    Dr Maillard or: How I learned to stop worrying and love the red.

    It occurred to me the other week that most of my beers, particularly the darker ones, seem to share a similar trait: A beautiful deep red hue. Now I know that some beer styles are supposed to have this red colour. Hold a pint of Guinness to the light and marvel at its rosy cheeks. Stand in awe...

    Bulk Tassie hops anyone?

    I've been talking to HPA who are the main hop grower based in southern Tas. Their minimum quantity is 5kg per variety but its around $31 per KILO inc GST depending on the variety. Seems pretty cheap to me. Is anyone keen to do an order and split some time or is 5kg just too much? We might need a...

    From Tassie With Love

    Hi all I've been reading forums on here for some time now and decided it was time to join. I'm a land surveyor by day and beer lover by night. And by day within reason! I've spent most of my spare time this year malting and brewing with surprisingly good results. Nothing compares to that feeling...
