    Getting More Out Of Your Wyeast

    It seems there has been a bit of discussion stirred up by the QLD yeast swap coming up. This topic is along the lines of making starters & yeast farming but I think it needs it's own thread as there may be quite a lot of different ideas of how to do this. The question is designed to get a bit of...

    I am driving to Perth for Xmas holidays and will be there for a few weeks so I am keen to meet up with fellow AHB'ers and have a few beers and talk brewing stuff.

    Stainless Steel Tube

    After the Brisbane get-together there is a few guys looking at getting a coil of 10mm x 1.6mm thick Stainless Steel tube (for CFWC's) It is going to cost $5 per metre plus $50 to roll it therefore the more tube done in one hit the cheaper it will work out. Anyone else interested? Hoops

    Not sure if it is possible to use this for brewing or whether it would have any toxic residue? It's got me thinking though. Thought I'd post it in case anyone down south thinks they can put it to good use. Hoops LPG Gas Tank
