    Do You Salary Sacrifice a Vehicle

    If you salary Sacrifice or lease a business vehicle or have a company car you need to see your tax man. The Prime Minister Kevin Rudd announced today that you are required to keep a log book 100% of the time to prove business related usage. They used to assume 20% private in their FBT...

    Goodes Racism Claim

    I see the person who called Goodes last night an ape was a thirteen year old girl. **** me this is the 21st century! Would be interesting to see her parents views on Indigenous people..........I reckon you'd find the answer to her attitude there me thinks.

    A Decent BIAB Bag

    Brewers Asset To Craftbeer Bars?

    On my recent stay in Melbourne and in fact at times in Brisbane I have spoken to various people behind the bar and they all tend to love the idea of people brewing their own. I think most of them have 'got' the fact that to go through the trouble that AG brewers do we truly love the golden drop...

    3 Ring Burner & Gas Reg Advice

    I currently run a 3 ring cast iron burner with a gas reg that runs 2kg/hr. I have just gone to double btaches (42l) and whilst the 3 ring does the job I was thinking of how I could speed things up a bit boil wise. Is it possible to run a different reg on the burner so that I can get a bit more...

    Water Volume

    Gents, Of late I've been missing my numbers. I've been falling short. I've been mucking around with brewmate and I reckon my settings aren't right. I BIAB and use a 70ltr vessel. I was wondering in general how many litres of strike water (no sparge) do other BIABers use. I used...

    Dark American Wheat Recipe

    I've modified Tony's Dark Wheat recipe from the DB and tried to get close to an American Wheat.. I intend brewing this on the weekend and would be grateful for input from you blokes. The bohemian Pilsner is a leftover from the original but I think might add an interesting bit of complexity...
