While I no longer live in the area they are a fantastic bunch of blokes, very knowlegable and great brewers who love to talk all things brewing and share their experiences. Ipswich Brewers Union may just be the family you...

    Hi, from a lurking fermenter in Brisbane

    Hey Redman, I recently moved from acreage where i had a 6 x 9 shed that housed my 3V brewery and related items. I'm now in an apartment in South Bris. Obviously i had to sell my the 3V but with that money i bought myself a grainfather, if you got the funds they are awesome. Alternately and for...

    Dripping Perlick's

    As QldKev said, forward sealing so need some back pressure to make sure they're shut off firmly. The issue might be that if you only disconnected them overnight and the keg pressure is dropping enough for them to slacken off and leak then you may have a gas leak at keg end somewhere, unless of...

    Conner Breware , any one else had any problems?

    Not suggesting anything sinister but I emailed them a week ago enquiring about a product and haven't had a reply. Perhaps there has been unforseen issues. I'll email again today and see if anything happens. bah

    Continuing Jokes Thread

    Dear Technical Support, 18 months ago, I upgraded to Girlfriend 1.0 from DrinkingMates 4.2, which I had used for years without any trouble. However, there are apparently conflicts between these two products and the only solution was to try and run Girlfriend 1.0 with the sound turned off. To...

    God damn #^*!*&*#^& flies

    Like a lot of creepies the little fuckers hate bleach. drop a little bit around drains and wetspots (except your jocks or the marital bed for obvious reasons) and it will help contain them a bit. Obviously starsan anywhere thats beer touchable.

    Stout - OG 1.055 has stopped at 1.020

    Yea, I reckon you'll find mouthfeel will be fine after its carbed and given a couple of days to settle after being kegged. If it finishes at 1015 it should have a good amount of body left in the beer, depending on original ingredients/mash temp etc. Buy I'd say it'll be fine. I often notice the...

    Stout - OG 1.055 has stopped at 1.020

    I'd swirl it one or two more times over the next 4-5 days. It might quite possibly drop another 2 points which would give 75% attenuation which would be about spot on. Again don't rush it, if it drops another couple points in the next couple of days then give it a couple of days for the yeast to...
