    Pico Brewery on Kickstarter - some automated brewery shite

    Having worked in the Homebrew industry and seeing the different build qualities the BM is in a league of its own in the single vessel market. I have done near 100 brews in mine and it still looks good which is more then I can say the the urn type thing that used to be my HLT which is the same...

    Pico Brewery on Kickstarter - some automated brewery shite

    Speidel was already a tank manufacture, it is not like volume was going to do much given they are/were already running at a large capacity. If you want cheaper take a punt on something made in China. Oh look some one has already done that...

    Where to go? In Canberra.....

    Debarcal on Lonsdale St for Pizza & Beer (pretty good selection). You have been told all the breweries. It is also worth heading into Smoque in the City or Woden for BBQ if that is your thing.

    My Light Ale Recipe

    Really there is not right answer, I would use crystal but that is by personal preference. Also .2kg of crystal steeped is not going to give you much in the way of fermentables. I would not worry too much.

    My Light Ale Recipe

    I cannot see a lot wrong with that. I would use white sugar instead of dextrose but that is my problem not yours. You could add some crystal or even some sort of roast malt for colour but I would not bother. If I was doing it AG or a partial I would but I don't see the need with an easy extract...

    Sanke Fermenter Kit

    The company I was talking to already carried all of the parts as stock. The only thing they would need to have made especially would of been the Tri-Clover cap with three threads to fit the compression nut/PRV/gas inlet. They could of left of the PRV fitting if they wanted to, which would of...

    Sanke Fermenter Kit

    I tried to get a manufacture to make something like this (the only thing I wanted different was a PRV added) they said they had made on before and it never sold. It was sold as a keg conversion kit; I asked them did they think about marketing it as a different product. Never heard back. If...

    Utilising an aspirator/venturi effect for inline wort aeration

    Mr Wizard in BYO a few months ago said that is all he used in his Homebrew setup.

    "BentSpoke", new Canberra brewpub link

    I went in yesterday for a quite one just before the lunch rush. Had a Mort's Gold; good clean pils, nice evident bitterness but well balanced with a full malty taste. The only issue I could find with it was a hint and only of hint of diacetyl, which I could only just taste at the bottom of the...

    How to Disassemble Beer Font

    Take the shank off from behind the tap and feed it through. I find top to bottom easier

    Using enzymes for mashing

    No these were quite expensive but they were for a specific function and the minimum buy was quite high. What price were they and what size vials? We had two 1l bottles for that price. A whitle lab vial is 35mls so you are looking at 28.5 units to be talking about the same volume which is going...

    Using enzymes for mashing

    As a major contributor to taking this off topic, I will add something use full as a way of making reparation. The reality is (well when I looked into it a few years ago) purchasing the enzyme's is not a cheap thing to do. I cannot remember the exact price but we did not get a lot of change out...
