    Marmalade In Witbier

    I seem to recall randy mosher recommending marmalade as the way of getting citrus into witbier, as the pectin helps to haze it up. I can't remember who I lent my copy of radical brewing to and I can't look it up - could anyone tell me the amount he advises? or if you have used marmalade in a wit...

    Beer In Icecream

    just went up to our favourite gelato joint after pizza in Norton st last night - De Luca Cremeria - and i was excited to see a new flavour "BEER" with a little creatures cap sitting decoratively on the front. it was delicious. i think it was a milk based one but not too creamy, with the...

    Fresh Sour Cherries In Sydney

    ok seeing as it's cherry season I am thinking of making a Liefmans kriek sort of thing - a sour brown ale with sour cherries added (not a lambic - i'm still working through the great maggot disaster of 2004) (that's another story) anyway! i know they grow morello and montmorency cherries in...

    spent hours adding boiling water, stirring, decocting, swearing at a stuck sparge before spotting my false bottom glistening quietly on the washing up rack. sometimes i amaze myself with how dumb i am.

    Bald Brew

    Had a very nice porter at Debacle in Canberra this past weekend called "Bald Brew Entire Porter". Fantastic stuff, really powerful roasty beer. When I asked them at the bar who makes it, they said Zierholz (canberra) makes it - presumably under licence for someone bald. But on the menu there...

    Bottle Conditioning Flavour Effects

    something i've noticed: things that may taste like crap at bottling taste totally different as soon as they're carbonated. like, three, four days later. i'm assuming that this is because the extra little bit of yeast activity in carbonation cleans up off flavours and produces a few more...

    Chouffe Houblon Dobbelen Tripel Ipa Clone

    my next beer: a clone of this thing: someone on northernbrewer has refracted the beer and found the FG to be under 1010, estimating the OG as 1073 (not 1092 as listed) Also I can't get tomahawk/columbus, so substituting chinook so...

    Sugarcane Juice

    OK I have this idea in my head that I would like to brew with fresh sugarcane juice. I love the taste of jaggery (an unrefined Indian sugar), which is apparently raw sugarcane juice boiled down. And I've seen sugarcane at the local fruitmarket so obviously somebody is doing something with it...

    Cask Vs Bottle Conditioning

    i am tempted by doc's beer engine heist but i just wonder if it's necessary. is there really any significant difference (apart from buying into CAMRA propaganda) in bottle conditioning ales at low CO2 levels, and serving it on cask? i've thought through it and can't see any reason why beer...

    Weyermann Malts

    Howdy, I put a post up about this yesterday but it disappeared?! odd. anyway, was wondering whether anyone knows if there's a source for Weyermann pils, vienna, munich malts anymore. They seem to have been replaced by Hoepfner at a couple of stores - I like the Hoepfner too but Weyermann was...
