    I have been using BrewMate v 1.26 for years. Today I went to print out a recipe and got the page with grain and hop details. There used to be a button "Brewday" which gave details of volumes, SG readings etc. It has vanished. Any clues?

    Priming sugar.

    I haven't bottled for nearly 10 years but want to give a bottle to a mate. I can't remember how much castor sugar I used to put in a bottle. Dies a teaspoon sound about right?

    Monteith's Phoenix IPA

    I picked up the last carton of this yesterday at 1st Choice for $50. I was pretty impressed with the taste. They use Simcoe, Chinook and Citra hops and it is 5%ABV. Has anyone tried it or had a go at cloning it?

    First BIAB attempt - not sure what to think

    After you pull the bag wind your temperature knob up to the max, you can't get too much. As above, you won't get a rolling boil if you dial anything less than 100 deg.

    I do BIAB in a 40L Crown urn. I have in the past used a camping mat to insulate my urn but over time it breaks down, sticks to the urn and is hard to remove. There must be a better material to use for the purpose. What solutions have fellow brewers come up with?

    Kamado goes tapas

    I have a round Primo Kamado and to date have cooked pulled pork, pork ribs, beef ribs and chook. I want to do a pizza but am still looking for a good recipe. Brisket in the future. Not sure about steaks as I have a Ziggy which does a great job.

    IPA Recipe

    I have never ventured into the world of IPA's but on a recent trip to Hawaii, and Auckland on the way back, I found out what I had been missing out on. I am now keen to try my hand at making an IPA. I am a BIAB brewer so use the no chill process which tends to use less hops. Does anyone have...

    Wanted - Jack Hammer glass

    Maybe I should have said "wanted to buy".

    Wanted - Jack Hammer glass

    Yes they are, that's why I am anxious to replace it.

    Wanted - Jack Hammer glass

    Does anyone have a spare, or surviving, Jack Hammer Ruthless India Pale Ale glass that they are prepared to part with. I had six until this bloody wind we are having at the moment blew one off the table onto the cement. My wife can break glasses for Australia, but I have kept this set intact...

    Do you BIAB, and if so how does the bag go with the temperature gauge probe?

    Anyone Had Gout?

    You have my heartfelt sympathy. I suffered for years from this very painful condition. Different things seem to affect different people but generally beer, red wine, rich red meat, seafood, tomatoes are culprits. I have been on Zyloprim (allopurinol) for about 15 years and have never had a...

    Stone and Wood Pacific Ale

    Claypot, Haven't seen that recipe. Not familiar with the term "mash hop". I haven't heard of Cloud Catcher, I assume that it is fairly new. Thanks Vittorio. sp0rk, I haven't tried the 60/40, not that keen on wheat, but if it does the job I am adaptable. I have used only Galaxy @ 10, 0 and...

    Stone and Wood Pacific Ale

    I have tried several published recipes in an attempt to replicate this beer, with zero result. The most obvious difference between what I have produced and the original product is the pale, almost yellow, colour. If I could achieve that, then I could start working on the flavour and aroma...

    Rubber band in keg

    I've managed to drop the ring from the keg lid into a brew. Enjoy the beer and fish it out after the keg blows.

    Crown concealed element users

    I'd be worried that a stainless steel scourer would leave scratch marks. I only ever use a green scouring pad (with a sponge on the other side).
