    AHB Strava Club

    Noticed a few people mentioned they did a bit of cycling and running whilst I was reading the biggest loser thread. So I decided to make an AHB Strava club. There are apps for smartphones, use dedicated monitoring devices, such as Garmins and Polars etc. or just manually upload your exercises...

    Heading to the States over Christmas.

    Heading to the States over Christmas. 3 weeks in total. 2 weeks in Phoenix where family live and a week in LA for Disneyland with the kids. This will be my 3rd trip over there and the 1st where I had any concept of good beer. Won’t have time or the inclination to visit any pubs/bars/breweries...

    I'm considering setting up the brewery for an auto start HERMS, where I mash in at room temp the night before, then on a timer the HERMS starts and raises to my desired rest temp prior to lautering and ready for me to attend. I know some people do this, especially a couple that use Braumeisters...

    Micromatic Flow Adaptors

    Bought 4 of these guys from the states and got my brother to bring them over on his recent visit back to Oz. Had on setup on a corny adaptor straight off the keg through the Perlick 525SS. Worked a treat. However, now i'm using these back at home on the keg fridge with the same perlicks, i'm...

    Recirculating Plate Chiller Calcs

    I like the idea of a Recirculating Wort Chiller similar to Jamil's Whirlpool Immersion Chiller, particularly the idea that the wort that has just been chilled is added back to the kettle to increase the rate at which the entire volume loses heat. I wanted to understand (or at least have an...

    Brown Pump

    So i bought one of these pumps so i can take a tier off my 3V gravity and to recirc HLT and chiller water... probably won't use it for wort transfer. Anyway how are people wiring these up? I chopped up a 12V power supply from old Christmas lights but it won't even pump from the bottom of...

    Fs Bris: 3 Corny Kegs $48.20 Each

    I recently bought 5 kegs from Ross on the $1 keg deal, including the 4 keg special. So spent $241 for 5 kegs. The intent was to split it with a mate (2 for me and 3 for him) but he changed his mind <_< and now i'm left with 5 kegs (3 of which i don't need). So if anyone wants 3 kegs...

    Designing A Private Bar

    I'm an Architect and I have a commission with a couple of wealthy brothers building a private bar for them in a hotel that they own and run. The original brief was to not have any beer service... just a wine cellar, bottle display and spirits (mainly blue label scotch... not sure they've heard...

    Where To Crush Your Grain?

    For the life of me i can't find anything on this... had a look but nothing definitive. I remember reading something about keeping your milling away from your fermentation area cause of nasties living on grain. Something about the dust created from crushing throwing up airborne baddies. So...

    Fs: Bris: 18 Gallon Keg (80l)

    Father in law has had this in his possession for about 30 years. He had used it to make wine. He no longer wants it and thought i could put it up for anyone that wants it. It's surplus to my needs (as Mrs Argon has explained <_< ) Very tempted to give him the money myself... but cash is tight...

    Double Batch Split Boil

    I currently do double batches. However Id like a little more variety and dont want to do single batches. So I thought, why not do a Pilsner and a Munich Helles via a partially split boil? The way I plan to do it is like this; - Do a 100% Pilsner mash (50/50 RO and local water) - Sparge and run...

    Late Hopping And Nochilling It Can Be Done!

    Typically when I NoChill I calculate all hop additions as plus 15 minutes. But the one thing that NoChilling doesnt allow me to do, is add those really late kettle hops to get that big flavour and aroma I would normally get from a 10min, 5min, 0min addition that was rapid chilled. Now, I have...
