    Oldschool Nick JD 'move to AG for 30 bucks' PDF

    Hi all Does anyone have a copy of the PDF version of Nick JD's old beginner's AG tutorial? Everything went when he got booted, but it's the way I learnt AG and still a great resource for beginners I think. I thought I had it somewhere but haven't been able to find it. A mate is starting out and...

    Asian-style meat tenderising

    Hey Went to my favourite asian joint on the weekend and had the sichuan pork. Totally awesome, and so tender. Meat dishes at asian restaurants are always like that... when I do stirfries at home I can't come near replicating it. What's the deal? Do they add kiwi fruit to the raw meat first...

    Eye Openers

    The recent thread about Octoberfest beers at Aldi make me think of the first time I had Paulaner Octoberfest. It was one of those moments in the beer journey where you think to yourself, wow, I didn't know a beer could taste like that... You love it right off the bat and discover a style unknown...

    Semi Force Carbing

    Hey all, I have a warm keg I need carbed in about 5 days. Because it's warm I can't use the Ross method, and because i need it done in 5 days I don't want to just set and forget in case it ends up undercarbed. So I've set my reg to 25 psi for the moment to give it a head start, then i'll...

    The fallen...

    Hey obviously I'm slow on the uptake, but Bribie's banned too now??? This is getting ridiculous! Surely you take into account the positive a person has brought to the forum when deciding whether to ban them for particular offence??? I'm not sure what he and Nick did because it's obviously very...

    Nightmare on Brew Street

    Hey guys, From time to time I read about member's brewery infection issues, and think 'thank god that's not me'. Except this time I think it is me. ****. I have had a lack of hop aroma in the last 5 or so brews with a slight chemical smell. Initially I thought it was the Keg King sanitiser...

    SMaSH Combinations

    Hey all, 30 or 40 AGs in now, and realised the other day I'm still yet to do a SMaSH recipe. The thought coincided with getting a sack of Best Vienna. At the moment I'm leaning towards a Vienna/Waimea SMaSH. I've done a little reading and heard nothing but glowing reviews for Vienna SMaSHs...

    Wyeast 1214 Belgian Abbey - Underpitch

    Hi, On the weekend I brewed a belgian pale ale with Wy 1214 - one smack pack. The OG was a bit low for style at 1045 but the plan was to use it as a 'starter beer' for an upcoming Belgian blond ale, so this was intentional, and I only brewed 9 litres. Mr Malty said I needed 3 packs due to the...

    Fuller's Spring Sprinter

    Hi all, Just came back from a trip to Europe and while in London I had several pints of an ale called Spring Sprinter by Fullers. I found it to be sensational. Light colored ale, around 4%, amazing hop aroma and taste. The Fullers website has a video where some guy explains the beer and the...

    Napisan And Easy Siphon

    Hey all, I've recently started using napisan (unscented, homebrand) to clean my fermenters, and pvt tubing, and airlocks etc. Much easier than scrubbing and a lot better in that I don't have to worry about scratching the fermenters. I know a lot of people use it, big props to whomever's post I...

Somewhere on this site I found a picture of the 'recipe' written on a blackboard (props to whoever posted it, cant find it atm). The description given by LC is as follows: Hops: cascade (tas...

    Apa From What's In The Cupboard

    Hi all, I'm interested in doing an APA (my first), and I also wanted to use the batch as a chance to use up some of the odds and ends I have floating around. So the other week I bought 80 grams of Chinook and some US-05 yeast. This is going to be a partial with dried malt extract. Apart from...
