On the 3rd day it tasted great. On the 4th day it was still great. On the 5th day it tastes and smells like...

    Re: Seppelts Drumborg Ale recipe ?

    Hi Guys, I had one of these at the Seppelt cellar door this week and it was very tasty. Thinking I'd like to brew up something similar myself. Anyone got anything (recipe) that might give me a good starting point using extracts and steeping ? Brewed with Maris Otter ale malt and some...

    Pumpkin Ale Recipe Check please

    Hi Guys, I've had a bad experience with a recipe from "Homebrew" magazine so this time I thought I'd check with the experts before committing. My recent bad experience was a recipe with very incorrect malt amounts and this next one I plan to do has a fair bit of sugars again (4.3kg total) so I...

    Re: HEFE lots of malt? Ferment time?

    Hi Guys, I put down brew number 37 a few weeks ago and its the first Wheat Beer I've made (been doing kits, extracts & spec grains). Its been in the fermenter now for 10 days and the airlock is still bubbling every 15 secs or so (ferment temp is about 20-22deg C) Now given the amount of malt...

    Oatmeal Ale ?

    Have just had a "WHOA - Wet Hopped Oatmeal Ale" Limited Release from Grand Ridge Brewery. It was very different and interesting and appealed to me with it's "oatmeal" aroma and mouthfeel. Thought I'd look for an extract recipe for Oatmeal Ales and couldn't find anything. Plenty of darker ales...

    Stalled Or Finished ?

    Hi Guys, I've done 17 brews so far and have now had one I'm not sure of. I can't work out if it's stalled or finished. It's a LCPA I've done before, but this one has 300g more sugars in it. The last time i did it the SG was 1048 and the FG was 1010. The brew has a SG of 1051 (probably due to the...

    Oak Chips Usage ?

    Hi Guys, About to brew a Big Island IPA and the recipe says 28g Oak Chips (dry @ ferment). I take it that this is not "dry hop @ 0mins" type addition, more that it is "dry @ 3days" ? Am i correct in this ? Cheers, Andrew

I normally just bottle from the primary and not that...

    Does Honey Cause Bottle Bombs?

    I'm about to brew a wheat beer with honey (ie quasi Beez Neez) and have read that using honey in the brew then bottling into stubbies with carb drops can cause bottle bombs. Is this true ? If so should I use only 1/2 a carb drop when bottling ? Cheers, Andrew

    No Airlock Activity But Bubbles On Wort?

    Hi Guys, I need advice on a new fermenter/brew. My 5th batch brewed so relatively new at this (first 4 were really good).

    Newbie-pale Ale, Amber Ale Or Bock Lager

    Hi Guys, I'm about to have a go at my first time brewing. Got a beginners kit with Coopers Heritage Lager in it. I was hoping to go for Ales as it's easier for me to sit the fermenter in the kitchen where it's always around 17 to 20 degrees. It'd be harder for me to achieve the 10 to 14 degrees...
