    Any interest in a Hobart based home brew club?

    Fern Tree Water

    Hey David, Yep water at FT is basically right off the mountain and gets very little treatment. You can contact TasWater for a detailed analysis but not sure if theyd give you FT results or generic Hobart. Either way it wouldnt be too far off, just may take a while to get them.

    High abv carbonating

    Hello all! Recently brewed and IRS which was aged in a whisky barrel and then kegged. It's been in the keg for about two months now and carbonation seems to have stalled.

    First brew - I stirred in the yeast and I don't see bubbles

    Sorry, I laughed ;) The yeast can take 24hrs to start actually bubbling out the airlock. Give it time. Watch your temp and maybe cover with a towel or blanket to keep it out of the light. As for getting the beer out, yeah tip it on its side to put your tap in. Make sure its all sanitized first...

    Another strava user here. Gotta love it. Will look through the thread and follow a few when I get a chance. Not much riding / running lately but that'll change soon.

    Prickley Moses

    Tried it about a week ago on tap and was very happy with it. Like you say the malt flavour has a great nutty character but I think the yeast gives it a great mouthfeel and balance.

    Coopers Russian Imperial Variation

    Wow, thats huge!! Sounds like its going great so far. Now you just need to try and hold off tasting it for six months (or at least a couple of weeks). Im a bit surprised it finished at 1030 really, you must have hit the sweet spot for yeast. Nice work :beerbang: post back with some tasting...
