    Bottle storage in small townhouse

    I use milk crates and just stack them as high as I can lift them. I get about 15 longnecks in a crate. And so long as you get the better quality crates, they lock together well when stacked up and there's no fear of the bottom falling out. You can even use different colour crates for different...

    2013 Hop Plantations, Show Us Your Hop Garden!

    At my joint on southern suburbs of Sydney my cascade, Saaz, hersbrucker and Mt hood are all up. And like danwood I'm also growing my hops up in front of my back windows for shelter from the northern sun like a big green awning.

    out of date white labs yeast

    It's 18 months out of date, but not too worried about that as I was always planning to try it with a starter first. I am really keen to try this yeast as I got it a while back before taking a breaking break from brewing before moving and renovating a new home. I was mostly concerned that it...

    out of date white labs yeast

    Hi all, Quick question should I use an out of date white labs yeast (San Diego super yeast) that fizzed like I was opening a beer, when I opened it? I was planning on making a starter to see if I could get it going again after finding it at the back of the fridge. No big deal if I can't, but...

    Anyone Know What Starsan Tastes Like

    hello again, thanks for all the replies and help with my problem, update time. I had another good taste last night of my beer and decided that the taste is not starsan, nor is my beer infected. The taste I am getting is a bitter flavour that I can now only put down to the combination of hops...

    Anyone Know What Starsan Tastes Like

    Evening all, sorry for the strange title, but let me set the context: I recently put down an extract IPA at Easter, used dry Nottingham yeast and have been keeping an eye on the gravity as it progressed, like I normally would. This particular brew day I sprayed starsan onto an already cleaned...

I used to have a good, long and thick head of hair like a mop. These days I just shave it all off for convenience, so now...
