    Make me an Ale!

    Brewers I have just acquired some Simcoe, Centennial and Mosaic Hops. As I just brew my usual house ales I thought I would ask the wider audience for some recipes that include these 3 hops. For your troubles I will shoot you a couple of tallies of either a Wheat or Golden Ale from my stash...

    A truly sad day

    After purchasing some POR rhizomes in June/July this year I was delighted to see the first shoot break through the soil last weekend. Although POR is not one of my favourite hops, it was none the less exciting seeing this grow and eventually mature enough to bear cones for my very first...

    Kids + Fermentation = Bad

    Bottled a wheat tonight as I had been away for a while. Inside my fermenting fridge was a little mouldy as well. I thought nothing of it as I have it sealed with trusty old glad wrap, until I spotted the nice finger shaped hole in it. My missus told me that it happened on Sunday Rather than...

    Dud Wyeast 1332?

    My Mum lives close by a well known LHBS so i got her to pick up some Wyeast 1332 for me. When I got the pack I noticed it was dated Jan16 2013 which I was not pleased at but I thought I would just make a starter - no problem. I pitched the whole thing into a 1.5L starter which I make the usual...

    S-04 not performing as expected

    First time I have used S-04 in a Brown Porter, I made the mistake of breaking by hydrometer just before pitching so i had no idea of the SG. It has been in the fermenter for 17 days now at 18 Degrees - it went flat out for the first 5 days then stopped. I just got a refractometer in the mail...

    Growlers - best places to buy them

    Looking for a good quality growler, have a preference for glass rather than some aluminium ones I have seen. BeerCartel have them for $55 but I am looking for a growler, not a second mortgage. Finance minister has approved the budget in the range of $0-$35

    Headspace in cube

    Gents I have recently started no-chill cubing and my last batch I used a 20L jerry from Bunnings. As much as I tried to squeeze all the air out there is still some headspace - maybe 3 inches. Will this affect the beer drastically?

    Hydrometer vs Refractometer

    Hi All Just getting a run down of who uses what on AHB. I suspect most kit/extract brewers would use a hydro and AG using a refrac/hydro combo both due to simplicity. (Trying to justify a new Refrac purchase - What are the best ones and from who?) Cheers Jaypes
