    Aldi specials

    This was the very reason I got into all grain brewing. A trip to the UK made me very keen to see if I could source some of the great beers I had on holiday back home. When I found a localish bottle shop I was stoked only to be very dissapointed when I started pouring pints of ale that travelled...

    Coopers bogged down in bible backlash?

    I always liked Jim Jefferies solution. If your a bloke and don't like the idea of two blokes getting married, then don't marry one, easy fix.

    Separatory funnel for yeast rinsing

    A drunken night on ebay saw me purchase a $20 sep funnel thinking that this would revolutionize my yeast rinsing, maybe a better quality one would be ok but the glass stop cock on mine was quite a rough surface, it did come apart completely for cleaning but i reckon the rough surface would be a...

    Commercial beer after best before; how long is too long?

    I've been using slowbeer with good results. No affiliation and all that but beers i have ordered have been well before best before dates. Not sure on the refrigeration of stock but i've been happy with quality. That being said i avoid buying IPAs in bottle form, been disapointed to many times.

    Commercial beer after best before; how long is too long?

    Yes really, like i said i appreciate the effort to stock some great beers, but with no idea about their product and how to care for it there is no point shopping there. Edit: Its not the first time i have heard that comment from a bottleshop up this way.

    Isolating the freezer

    most common case for fridge/freezers is the freezer gets cold and and a tstat allows a vent to open to let cold air into the fridge, so cant be isolated. much less common is when there are two seperate refrigeration circuits this could then be done. dunno what sort of fridge you have so cant...

    English "off the shelf" beers

    was in the uk a couple of years ago, it makes me sad to remember the good range of beer at a great price you can by from the supermarket. same beer over here costs four times as much.
