    KegKing now at

    Ballarat Beer Festival 2018

    I made the trip up from Melbourne for the day. First time and I thought it was great. Definitely reckon the lakeside location was excellent, plenty of shade as you said and the breeze off the lake really kept the temperature nice. Some great beers there for sure.

    eBay stock pots

    Good to hear the soga pots are good quality. I agree those taps look pretty naff to me too, would rather just buy the pot and finish it myself.

    Topping up the kettle post boil

    I design the recipe based on finished volume. If you use beersmith you can set your recipe's top up water on the volumes area.

    Topping up the kettle post boil

    Yeah I keep a cube of boiled and chilled water around for dilution post boil for if I'm doing a double batch in my crown urn. Seems to work well.

    Pirate Life sells to AB InBev

    I wonder how many will stop purchasing them because they don't want to support AB InBev though? Probably more than a few but less than a lot I suppose.

    Pirate Life sells to AB InBev

    Good on them, amazing effort in a pretty short time. Would be good if it meant it got cheaper but I very much doubt that.

    Problems with yeast rinse

    Maybe even look at splitting it into some vials with glycerine and freeze it? You can sell the idea to SWMBO on the idea of buying yeast less often.... Hahahahaha.
