UPDATE

Well a couple of weeks out and hasn't the weather turned nice!

Bit of a plan

Kick off
Midday and suggest we do the swap at 1pm

Crates if you have and extra one remember to bring along, easier to swap that way

Lunch
I'll do a slow roast pork (pulled pork...leave it), rolls and slaw. Anyone that wants to contribute is more than welcome, have a biggish BBQ so knock yourselves out.

I've got 4 taps and depending what I knock over in the next couple of weeks, will have an Anchor Steam, IPA, Monterey Pale or Galaxy Pale and a Stout either the 4 or 8.8% .......or we can swap around

Also got a spare gas bottle and reg, so if anyone wants to bring kegs to "sample from" again ....... knock yourselves out.

Drop Offs and Pick Ups
Anyone wanting to drop off early is welcome, make sure your crates are well marked and bottles numbered. Plonk them on our doorstep if no ones home, they will be safe there. Let me know when you're coming, and if I can be around i will and we can share a roadie. Pick ups pretty much the same way


I'll pm everyone when I get a chance with the address

Cheers all

Mike

Sorry guys, life got in the way of most of my brewing plans the last few months. I have a black IPA fermenting, but it's nowhere near the volume required. So I'm pulling out. Have a good day all.

Cheers,

Josh

Ok, very slight issue with my beer. I've just moved and in the chaos of the moving process four bottles got smashed and so only have 20 bottles left. I plan to replace these with some off the shelf English bitters. Hope this is ok!

Both of my assigned numbers bottled on the weekend.
The porter is sitting in my ferm fridge at ~18 to hopefully get some carb in it, although it will still benefit from age.I didnt get a chance to oak it though :(
Co-brewer was in charge of the heady topper.

Co-brewer is planning on smoking up some spicy beef jerky for the event and I think ill bring a pile of snags

Had a crack at The Arrogant Bastard clone yesterday.
I was a little disappointed, It was nice, well balanced but not what it should be.
It was served up fairly cold thanks to the conditioning fridge being set at 1.8c.
as it warmed up, woah, the bitterness came up, the flavour became much more intense....more like it should be.
Been quite a while since a had the real deal and it was OOD, so don't know how it compares.
I can say though, I am very happy with this beer, I hope everyone enjoys.
See yer all, Saturday.

I'm travelling from the relo's in the gong. so bringing food may be a problem.
I can bring a lack of height and a smart arse attitude.

Well didn't get as much tidying up for the Swap as I'd planned ...... a few snaps of the backyard where we're meeting next weekend ...promise to break out the chainsaw and carve a path by then!

We've been painting the pool, so got a marquee to go over it in case of rain, started to refill the pool this week. First picture is of the tarp over pool, this was rapidly removed (by me) on Saturday as things got exciting. Further pictures show branches down etc. One dead mouse and two live frogs also fished out of the pool!

Fingers crossed for next weekend!

Will be ready to box up soon after final taste and carb check. On that what is everyone using for crates? The old milk version or is there something more suitable available? No time for me to build a fancy wood crate like i wanted to.
