    2nd Melbourne Belgian Beer Garden

    Gday guys Hopefully not a repost- i tried searching for it! Last week while browsing through the Age newspaper I noticed an advertisement for positions available for a new Belgian Beer cafe & resteraunt at the new Eureka Tower in Melbourne. I think the building is quite a while off completion...

    Hop Sediment

    Gday guys I have an amber ale clone in primary at the moment, where the gravity has been 1016 for 2 days, i will check tomorrow to see whether it's ready for 2ndry.

    Amber Ale Recipe...done Before?

    Gday guys Well, the time has come to upgrade from the coopers kits and try some full recipes using the raw ingredients. I've bought these ingredients from the very helpful local homebrew shop, and would like an idea on what things to look out for, and whether anyone has done a similar recipe. I...

    Long Krausen Time

    Gday guys Last week I put on a Hoegaarden clone brew- the 3Kg ESB Bavarian wheat kit with the orange peel & coriander. Now that the nights are getting nippy i have been using the heat belt when it falls below 16C, it's usually been sitting at anywhere between 16-22C. The krauzen was formed...

    Gday peoples A quick question on the PET bottles that come with the Coopers Kits...for those that use them how many uses would they last, over time would they get weaker and be more prone to exploding during secondary in the bottle?

    Commercial Breweries

    Gday fellas I had a bout of curiosity the other day....the bigger commercial beer companies, eg. CUB, Fosters etc whoever they are now owned by, how do they brew their beers? Do they start right from the raw ingredients and get the barleys, hops etc, or basically make up a huge supply of...

    How Crucial Is Fg?

    Gday fellas The last week I have a coopers Aust Pale Ale fermenting away at 18-22C, tastes ok too when i've been checking the gravity readings. The OG reading was 1040, now it's down to 1012, temp has remained constant but hasnt moved much off the 1012. It's been 7 days since the brew was...

    Quick Question!

    I'm about to start a 2nd brew, an Australian Pale Ale in the coopers brew kit. It's confusing the hell out of me, every set of instructions seems to be conflicting. One set says add the brew sugar and concentrate before pitching the yeast, but a recommendation on the booklet in the can says it's...
