    Lager and Ale ferment together ?

    G'day Brewers I just mixed up two batches of Blue Mountains Lager which was going to be fermented at 12c. With Morgan's Premium Lager yeast, washed. But I accidentally chucked ale yeast in one fermenter. What temp should I set my fridge at as they have to go in together ?

    I just lost a shit load of CO2

    G'day keggers. Last brew day I keg hopped two kegs and used 8kg fishing line to hang the hop bags from. I just tied the line to the hop bag with some marbles as a weight and ran it out between the keg and lid. Now my recently filled 6 kg cylinder is nearly empty...luckily I have a pair of the...

    Beer afloat.

    I like to have a couple of middies whilst fishing and am going to hook up a 9.5 corny to this tap. It may foam up a bit but I will keep you posted. I hope I'm not going overboard. I am even thinking of using a CO2 extinguisher for dispensing and I can use it to put out fires.

    Have I cracked the code ?

    I don't know if this has been discussed previously but I am thinking that the Home Brand Draught and Lager from W are actually Morgans. The bottom of the tins have very similar codes and the 5g yeast thing is stuck to the can with the same glue. Can anyone confirm this please?

Any way I am on the NSW South Coast and am quite happy brewing kit beer to feed my new Keezer which feeds me and my mates and sons. I thank you all for...
