    Heating my brew

    The 30 watt bulb has done the trick for me. It heated a glass of water from 17 to 19 pretty quickly. I never bothered to wire the heat side of my stc1000 so I have dusted off my old Mashmaster Tempmate to control the light bulb while the STC controls the fridge.

    Heating my brew

    I have a 240V desk fan at my office in the city but alas I am working from home this week. So I stole the bedside lamp from the spare room with a 10 watt bulb. When I came out this morning the air temp in the fridge was reading 15 degrees so I have upgraded the bulb to a 30W halogen and will...

    Mixing hops

    Citra and Galaxy go great together! my house APA is a combination of 80g galaxy and 50grams citra and it has been well received in the past. I would definitely add more than 50 grams of dry hops for an IPA. Pretty sure any combination of Citra, galaxy and Amarillo will work well. Regarding a...

    Heating my brew

    so I am looking at a heating solution up here in QLD because I want to ferment at 19 degrees and from experience the fridge will drop to 15-16 in the current ambient climate. Will a PC fan be sufficient for this? I'm looking at a 12V 100mA pc fan from Jaycar which would be 12 * 0.1 = 1.2 Watts...

    When you just gotta make that Potato Soup APA!

    never seen that before. Although it's not a very good photo. can you take some out and put it in a glass and take another photo? Looks like someone gave you unmalted wheat instead of ale malt?! It doesn't seem to have any amber/gold colour to it at all.

    Where to buy decent nano brewery systems in aus?

    I'm not saying you can. What i was trying to say is that you could use much cheaper, different equipment to make the same quality beer.

    Where to buy decent nano brewery systems in aus?

    I agree man , $6k for a 50L setup; you could get that for $2k with no reduction in quality of beer.

    Getting passion fruit out of Galaxy hops

    where are you getting the hops from? That recipe should be getting a very similar aroma to stone and wood pacific ale. if the hops are old or stored poorly it can impact the aroma. New season is due pretty soon I think. also I find adding the hops at fermentation temperature gives the best...

    Brut IPA

    That's cool that you've got 10L to play around with after brew. It's always a bit of hand break for crazy ideas when you realise you'll have to drink 20 litres of this stuff! My first ever kit brew was a brewcraft lager, which included a drying enzyme!

    Looking for Balance in Vienna Galaxy SMaSH

    I tend to think of brewing with darker malts + cane to sugar a bit similar to using ice and hot water to produce tap water.

    Brut IPA

    I'm sure the hipsters will love it. Trends in beer, good grief. I tried a can of Heady Topper at the height of the "haze craze" and was unimpressed. I thought it was high in hop astringency - to the point that I would have been disappointed if one of my brews turned out like that. So since that...

    1st time Lager, yeast technique

    you'll still need to make a starter I'd say. depends on your OG. use mr malty yeast pitching calculator http://www.mrmalty.com/calc/calc.html that's a lot of lager for your first one. You don't do things by halves do you! Be warned lagers can be hard. good luck!

    What are you Brewing - 2018

    That recipe above, the ipa, came out to check it just now and it's gone off with yeast spewing out the airlock. Never seen us05 do that before. Set at 18 degrees too. Maybe pitched too much slurry
