I've just seen this thread (haven't had time to look at this forum for months actually) - I've got an orval clone at home which might fit the bill (Brett cultivated from a bottle of Orval, using Jamil's recipe from his recipe book). Scored 105 pts at VicBrew so I guess its OK. Happy to chuck in a dozen stubbies, but i won't be going to ANHC - is there anywhere else I can drop off? I usually drop things at Dave's home brew, Greensborough.

Happy to have you join the swap but its not a dozen subbies it's closer to 22 stubbies ATM I think ie 1 long neck or 2 stubbies per person. As for getting them down there. As the swap isn't happening till after ANHC you still have time to get them to Quintrex

Thanks again barls, always a gentleman. Didn't get to this on the weekend. I'll sort out some bottles this week and get something in place for bottling this coming weekend.

I live in West Footscray, or if you can get it to the conference venue, I'm happy to collect them from you there. Once the rest of the swap entries get in, we'll coordinate getting all of the beers out to everyone. At the moment, I'm pretty busy with conference stuff, but will be back onto organising the swap in November.

I'll PM you my mobile and we can sort something out.

Cheers,

Q

Just racked both of mine and had a taste. One of them I made close to two years ago and fermented out with roeselare dregs. No idea what it started life as but when emptying the demijohn I saw old vanilla beans so vanilla something. Surprisingly sweet rather than sour for something that old.

The other is an old ale fermented with brett and given a dose of citrus zest yonks ago.

Not sure whether to put 1 of each in per swapper or pick one.

What is the exact cut-off date please Q? I still need to allow them to settle after racking, then re-seed and bottle.

If last year was anything to go by, early next year will be the swapping date I suspect mate!

Q and co were pretty busy with anhc this year so he is probably resting atm! And draining what is left of the sabc kegs for me.

I'd say you'd be ok to start on your process above.

fwiw - I dont mind if its one of each or a matching pair of your stellar funky beers :D

Bottled my buckwheat sour! It's... bracingly... sour, but the buckwheat has come through with no hesitation. It's not going to change the world, but it's certainly drinkable.

I racked 10L of a too-thin american wheat into the keg/solera - so here's to a gen two!

If you drop them into Q's, feel free to help him drain the SA contingent's kegs from Club Night at ANHC too. The quicker they are emptied the sooner I can courier them back home here! :)

Hey guys, been offline for a while. Got a few sours atm so will need to bottle something up. Some Berliner weisse, a golden strong ale with cherries and some lambic.

Will bottle this weekend and send early next week.

Kabooby :)

i vote for the kriek tripel kabooby, yum.

mine's had such a beautiful blanket of white pustulence that i haven't wanted to touch it. i'll rack the bugger and bottle it next weekend. so we're looking at only 18 stubbies now?
