    NSW State Comp 2016

    I've only just got to this today. And for the first time in a long time I have something worth entering. Rather annoyed with myself. I'm hopping that I can drop off at Dave's on Tuesday Morning , as he is closed tomorrow and Monday. Is this still possible ? The alternative is I'll drink my...

    Comment by 'BOG' in media 'Removable Oak Cladding'

    Been thinking about doing this for some time, but making it permanent. It's beautiful work .. How stable is the temp ? Did you shave the inside edge of the slats so they didn't have a gap when placed on a curve ?

    To late to brew for a party. Or is it ? Help Required

    thanks everyone. Was thinking a APA or a bright ale, light and social. I have the yeast WL002. So that that bit's done. Sound like for the response it's all possible. I would have liked to have served an english Ale, a Best Bitter, but to be honest the fresh wort kit's are not so great on that...

    Show Us Your Hb Xmas Present

    I made mine from a kitchen company (Wholesale Kitchens) so the bench height is 850mm from memory. I've been able to find a Williams commercial fridge (free) all stainless that fits the hole but not the kegs. It blew up just before...

    90 Min Boil Or 60 Min

    I've brewed the same reciepe (ESB) for about 5 years. A few batches each year. I've yet to get it the same each time. The focus is on fine tuning the process. I find the process variation has the greatest impact on flavour. after all this time I've yet to nail it. But i'm getting closer!

    Very nice, can i assume the space is for a key fridge. I had all sorts of problems finding a keg fridge to fit into the new kitchen. What did you end up using ? BOG

    2012 Esb Home Brew Competition - "the Good The Bad And The Ugly&q

    I'm really anoyed with myself. Ive tried my ESB for the first time tonight. It could do with another week or two in the bottle. But as it stands I'm rather pleased with the result. I knew I wouldn't make it but it was so close. I got a HC (40 points) at last years comp for the ESB. This years...

    Taking A Home Brew To Limited Production

    I was contacted at work by the bar owner (yes we have a bar at work) about putting a beer on a spare tap he has. I suggested he run a home brew competition, provide a decent prize to get a few entries, and take the winning reciepe to a small production house to have it made. that way he gets to...
