    C02 bulbs,where to buy ?

    Just filled my 4l mini keg and went to get a co2 bulb but i'm all out, a google search shows that no one stocks them apart from brewing supply places. Anyone know if any normal retail stores in Melbourne stock them ? I think it might be time to move up to soda stream size bottles.

    Dark Munich smash

    So i have 5kg of dark munich 100g of hallertau pellets and saflager 34/70 to make my first all grain and first smash brew, i cant find a definitive guide on hop addition ie amount and timing. Is 100g on par for 5kg of grain, would a 50/50 hop addition work - mid mash and at the end ?

    Electric urn

    So had a clean up a few weeks ago and i found a 10l stokes electric urn under my stairs, i was going to sell it but occurred to me that although too small for a BIAB setup i could find another use for it. I just put on my first cider so it was handy to heat up 3ltrs of water instead of boiling...
