    CO2 regulator for sodastream, flasks, gas flow meter (Canberra)

    CO2 regulator for portable dispensing. $40 This is a US bought regulator which has the same thread as soda stream bottles and leads off to a disconnect. Making it work with sodastream bottles is a small machined brass plate and o-ring which seals and then depresses the soda stream bottle valve...

    Putting out early advice that there will be a BJCP exam running in Canberra on Sat 11th September. We've 12 examinees from Canberra so far which means up tp 8 spare seats (worth planning a road trip?) should anyone from Sydney, Melbourne or even further afield wish to sit the exam for the first...

    Chinese Hops? What Next

    Am I incorrect in reading that these are hop pellets - i.e. the heavily processed form, not plugs, not whole "leaf" (i.e. what the first post seemed to suggest). In that case you might want to check the ICON case, "hop pellets and hop extract". Import permit not required...

    Canberra - Wig & Pen This Weekend

    Hopdemic, Venom and Hophead at the seasonals on the board at the moment. The theme goes well with the fresh (chinook I think) hops decorating the bar. I forget which of the beers are on which tap at the moment and which of those are through the hop-back though.

    Soda Stream Cylinder Types

    You say they are shorter, how much so. The ones I have are 36cm from base to the top of the brass fitting. The aluminium bottles I have, and have been successfully swapping recently, look similar to yours, same graphics on teh albel and all. However, the noticable difference is the neck of the...

    What Happened To Plonk?

    Plonk are in the process of setting up shop in new location, apparently in close proximity to where they were. One of the proprietors (Anthony) was good enough to come to the latest Canberra Brewers meeting armed with nice selection of some of their beers and gave us the run-down. They are on...

    Wanted: 3 Tap Andale Font.

    Do you require it to be flooded? I have a 3 tap font that I've been thinking of selling as it'll be a while before I can get a suitable setup to use it so I'll probably go over to through fridge shanks. I'll send a PM with pics Darryl

    Tight Arse Stir Plate

    TL, the "squeal" you talk about from the fan is likley the fan trying to start up on too low a voltage/current. Some fans happily start on a wide range of voltages (even down to 40% of their 'rated' voltage) others struggle even at some 75% of their rated voltage. Usually, once spinning, the...

    Erlenmeyer Flasks

    The 2L erlenmeyer I picked up from Stennick a few weeks back was a Schott Duran type, not problems with the quality of the flask. $18 ex GST was their asking price. I only have an electic stove so have been boiling inside an empty pot on the electic stove - no disaster yet.... TL - I picked up...

    Saaz B Rhizome

    JasonY With the feedback from some others regarding the "protected" varieties of hops in NZ, the quarantine issues may now be a moot point. Anyway, in brief... Based on general conditions (more so generic/UK versus NZ specifically), you should be able to get hops plants into Australia as either...

    Saaz B Rhizome

    With respect to rhizomes, you are probably just best off getting whatever you can from within Australia. I'm not sure where the WA legislation sits with repsect to rhizomes from other states though - I've never looked. Any - check back on the weekend and see if I found anything interesting out...

    Saaz B Rhizome

    Regarding imports of rhizomes, you'd be looking at a fee of around $100 to apply for an import permit (inlcuding manual lodgement fees). And yes, you'd be right that there "may" be all sorts of pests in any soil stuck to the rhizome (even if it is washed farily well), but there may also be...
