    Mangrove Jacks as the 2nd brew

    Over the weekend I put down my 2nd batch. The first was the small batch 5lt (only got just over 3lts) kit from smallbatchbrew. Good first run for BIAB. Currently 1 week in the bottle so a few more to go... This run was from a mates leftovers. Used the MJ SS fermentor and the kits that came with...

    No idea really....

    Hi guys, I’m new to the group and looking to learn as much as possible. Old time brewer from the 80’s but really, that wasn’t great beer and great techniques back then.

    Multiple grains in recipes. (complicated?)

    Hi, I have just started experimenting away from the kit and kilo brews and trying to do a couple of smaller BIAB and extract to basically try different techniques and styles. My thinking so far is BIAB, no chill then racking into a container after fermentation to settle out the sediment. No...

    New to brewing

    Hello all. My wife got given a cider kit (with no equipment) so I used that as an excuse to brew some beer too. Thought I'd swing by a forum to work out what I should be doing since I've never attempted brewing before. Looks like a lot of new terms to learn. Anyway, got the mangrove jacks...

    Gday AHB, Ive recently left the ADF and am hoping to turn my hand at 'pro brewing'. Ive always home brewed off and on since high school and have made some pretty decent beers with my brother during those years etc. Friends, family, randoms and others also gave me genuine feedback, which was...
