    Will this work?

    I'm brewing up a few beer for an upcoming party in July. I'm fixing to brew a DIPA as I haven't for a while and I'm craving an over-the-top hop monster, however, I don't want to get my party guests maggoted after 2 pints. What I am thinking is this: I have a system capable of double batches and...

    Crown Urn

    Hi All! Have upgraded the brewery and no longer have a use for this guy here. Bought it brand new about 3 years ago and hasn't failed me since. If you have any questions please ask. Oh and it has had the boil protection bypassed but I can easily change that if desired. Location is in the...

    Old 3V setup for sale

    Brewers, I've upgraded my system and no longer require the items that I am offering up to you today. This rig has seen quite a few batches through it and has also put up with some endless tinkering,including using the urn as a Brau-clone at one stage. Items are located in Melbourne, near the...

    Brew shed flooring

    So I've been given the go-ahead to build a garden shed in the back, with swmbo knowing full well it will be more brew shed than anything else. I'm building it myself with my old man so have the luxury of customising it a bit. First thing to consider is the flooring. I can't do a concrete slab so...

    New BJCP Guidelines

    Looks like the BJCP committee have finally untaken a revision of the slightly outdated BJCP guidelines. A few deletions of styles (No more Belgian Specialty) and renaming of others (Imperial IPA is now Double IPA) Chip at Chop and Brew has a video from the recent NHC in Grand Rapids in which...

    Ferm chamber insulation

    My old fermenting fridge kicked the bucket the other day and so I've been looking for an alternative. I've seen some good looking 'mini fridge fermentation chambers'. Basically building an insulated frame around a mini fridge (which I already have). The builds I've seen on the American forums...

    WTB - Fermenting fridge

    Soooo my fridge just died (booooo!), and as such I am now in the market for a new (old to you new to me) one. If you have one lying around and could part with it for a reasonably low $ amount then let me know! Also if anyone in the area (Yarraville) wants a dead fridge for any reason then pm...

    curious yeast starter

    Just a question to see if any of you lads have had a similar experience with a yeast starter. I'm planning a big brew (~1.095) and according to Mr. Malty that will require a 3.5L starter using a stir plate. I only have a 2L flask so I went for the 2 step approach. First time doing so. I made...

    Help designing Brew Stand

    Hey Guys. I'm currently brewing BIAB beers using a 40L crown urn. I've just got my hands on a 26L rubbermaid cooler and my ultimate goal now is to use the urn to heat up my strike water, mash in the cooler, sparge from the urn and then boil in the urn. Confused yet? What I am thinking is having...

    Vicbrew 2012

    Hi Guys! I'm very excited to be entering my beers into competition for the first time! I had a look for an existing thread about Vicbrew 2012 but only came across the 2011 and 2010 threads. Hope I'm not doubling up! I've got a Vanilla Porter ready as well as a AIPA that is about to be bottled...

    Butter In My Bottles But Not In Keg

    Hey Guys! I brew full sized batches that are eventually split in half, after fermentation has finished. I have a small place and half of my batches go into my 2x9L kegs, for two different brews, in my bar fridge and the other half of my batches get bottled. I've been noticing that my bottles...
