    Sandgroper 2009 Case Recipes

    This is the thread to include recipes for and pictures of the beers you are tasting. Personally I like to have the recipe in front of me as I taste the beer, link the flavour to the ingredient, so dont be shy, post your recipe before someone asks.

    The 2009 Sandgroper Christmas Case is organised by me. It is not an AHB sponsored event and it is not organised by consensus. It is a private social gathering at my private house. I organise it each year because I want the opportunity to taste what other brewers in WA are making. It is not a...

    Sandgroper Case Info

    I was hoping to wait a few months and then try my second bottle of oyster stout from the case. But I drank it yesterday, sorry Sinkas, but I reckon it would be in orbit if I didnt. Cos the top of the bottle had done this.

    Brisbane Brewhouse

    Looks like I am going to be in Brisbane overnight Sunday for a Monday meeting. If anyone is up for a beer, I will be the bloke in the brewhouse eating the ribs, drinking the schwartz, wearing a west coast brewers shirt, and not getting so drunk that I miss my early morning meeting.

    Old Swan Brewery Perth

    So, as a special treat, Mrs GL is driving, and we are going to OSB for dinner, where they have 5 brewed on premises beers for me to try. I am working from light to dark, so I ask for the Pilsner. "" Oh we have the James Squire Pilsener instead". OK I'll have the wit. "Oh we have the James...

    To hopefully make the information more accessible to anyone searching AHB in future, I will put some observations and photos of our stein beer brew day here in a separate thread. Other than the BYO article on stein beers, and Graham Sanders podcast, there isnt much info around on how to go...

The only one currently on the website is Sierra Nevada Pale Ale at the sum of $8.50 for a 350 ml bottle! But they may not have updated the website, the pale ale wasnt there yesterday...

    Gls Bar

    Good to see a bunch of kegging setup photos being added to this site, so here is a link to a new page on my web site with photos of my bar. 2 years ago Mrs GL said a bar would be OK but it had to have a retro feel. Since I dont have any chippies in the family, it couldnt be something as flash...

    Grain Mills

    I'm sure most people dont need reminding, but its worth checking inside your mill before chucking the grain in and milling away. I didnt fnd this guy until I was doughing in. He went through a Valley on the second closest roller setting and was remarkably intact at the end. BTW, if going to...

    3d Manifold

    When I built my mashtun manifold, I looked up all the references, and took care to minimise channelling and short circuiting. But I never fly sparge, only batch sparge. So short circuiting is in fact good because the tun drains faster, as long as you still filter the crud out, right? Or...

    Brewery Photos

    Finally took some photos last brew day and updated the stuff on the brewing page on my website which was pretty old. Brewery photos I am especially happy with the hydraulic boiler liftovator, which means I can now sparge straight into the boiler and not shag around with plastic containers. If...

    Esky Mash Temps

    When I first started ag I had aquired some k type thermocouples which I tried to use for the mash temperature. I thought that they would be good because they respond instantaneously to temperature. But these have a poor absolute accuracy, can be out by more than a degree and I switched to a...
