    Storing 25kg Grain

    Out of curiosity, how long does grain last for in storage? I've read that once it's cracked it's best used within a couple of days. What's the 'shelf life' for grain both cracked and uncracked?

    Beer Without Hops?

    Is Pride of Ringwood the only hop variety grown commercially/successfully in Australia? I'm sure Little Creatures don't use any Aussie hops for their Pale.

    Plastic Fermenters Are For Pussies

    I'll bet you had a pronounced woody characteristic of your own once you set eyes on that thing, Sosman!

    Empty Chimay Keg 20.5lt

    Wow... I wish there was somewhere in Adelaide that had Chimay on tap. Where did the keg come from?

    My Weizen Recipe?

    One thing I loved about the weihensteph hefe was its citric-lemon zing. What's the consensus on putting lemon peel in a recipe like this? And what about bottle conditioning? Yours must still be quite young, Morry. What's a good time to leave a beer like this in the bottle before drinking?

    Chopper Reid Beer

    Lame. I bet it tastes like piss. "Jesus, Chopper, put it away!"

    My Weizen Recipe?

    I only just tried some Weihenstephaner Hefe and Dunkel's for the first time this arvo and man, they were mathafackin delicious. What a Summer quencher that hefeweissbier is! I'm pretty keen to try a recipe like that for my next brew, Morry.

    try something new

    Yo gravediggaz. I've been making my way through the Leffe range over the past few days. Their dark ales (red and purple labels, can't remember the names) were quite nice, though a little sweet. Quite nice, but definitely not up there with Chimay Blue for my money. I just tried the blonde which...

    Some Interesting Local Brews

    Thanks for the heads up, Phantom. I'll steer well clear of that stuff, although the operation sounds so dodgy that I might have to try one out of masochistic curiosity if I get the chance.

    Home Brew Leads To Hawke's Bay Prison Lock Down

    LoL, yes, I'm sure it was a fine drop indeed.

    How Much Beer Do You Have In Storage ?

    I'd be sure to keep some VB, Tooheys Extra Dry and/or other such crap if I had that much good beer. You wouldn't wanna waste the good stuff on the macro-swill plebs ;-) I agree though that it seems a pretty obsessive amount of beer to be hoarding.

    How Much Beer Do You Have In Storage ?

    Here's a link straight to his proper bar: http://kp.home.mindspring.com/BeerRoom/bar.html Doesn't look too dodgy to me! What a beer fiend.

    Favourite And Cheapest Bottle Shops

    Thanks for that tip, Dicko. I still haven't tried LCPA on tap, so I'll definitely be keeping that in mind. Does anyone know anywhere else that has the Lil' Creatures on tap in Adelaide? As for Adelaide and Coopers Pale Ale mentality, it's a bit dodgy alright. The recent Coopers ad campaign...

    When It's Time To Chuck....

    BWAHA! Nice one. Raging alcoholic snails... there's gotta be a movie in that, or something.

    Favourite And Cheapest Bottle Shops

    I live near the bottle-o that's won that award for Adelaide at least once (the Sip 'n Save on The Parade) and it kinda sucks for beer. They charge close to ten bucks for single stubbies of Belgian. Nine bucks for Duvel I think. Their range doesn't compare to the Kensy BWS either, even though...

    Favourite And Cheapest Bottle Shops

    I was wondering what the best and cheapest bottle shops around are, and in particular if there's anywhere better in Adelaide than my local favourite, the BWS on Kensington Rd in Rose Park. They have the best range of imported beer that I've come across in Adelaide with mostly better prices than...

    Styles To Brew Without A Fridge

    I might give an extract version of Skunk Fart a go. After looking over the Skunk Fart thread I noticed Jayse at one point said he used 50 grams of Nottingham yeast. That seems like lots to me, but I've still never used more than 15 grams of dried yeast. Would results be much better and/or...
