Hi all,

I know I know I know its all about low and slow but.

just pulled a beer and found I have now a empty keg and I am having a Aus day bbq!
if there any thing I can brew? I am kegging so I can force carb so not much of a problem there.

I have a temp controlled fridge so I can dial in any temp.

any style is ok but wheat..

or should I just go buy a case of VB!

it will be going to be put down tomorrow.

Maybe a 2% beer might ferment in time? But I cant imagine it ending well. Best to buy a carton I'd say.

Definitely not as a cheap as VB

I looked into it a tiny bit a few years ago. Lapstone Hotel bottle-o thought that he could get me one in.

I assume there's a deposit on the corny.

If you're serious you better get onto it tomorrow

They also do 5L flagons of beer. I've actually bought/recieved a couple of those. The 5L swing-top comes in handy for brewing purposes.

(the 5L beers are not highly carbonated at all... more like a real ale, but you can always pour them into a keg ;))

Actually... now you've got my wanting another flagon... might have to pick one up :)

You could knock out a mild and force carb in that time possibly.

I have heard of grain to brain in 7 days,
but 4 days....

I would be on the new old VB if it was me. Hell I have 3 kegs full and a 4th fermenting now and i will probably still be on it.

Playing cricket with a corny tucked under the arm is f*cking difficult, much easier to manage a tinnie.

Cheers,

Some of the Coopers yeast I've recultured from a bottle finishes fermenting in only a few days.
I've also brewed a wheat beer that was great about 7 days after it was made ... but with only 4 days, you might have to go buy VB.

Tee up a swap with a brewer mate close by.... take his keg and give him yours when it has finished properly.

I can't believe you guys are recommending VB? Isn't time that beer went into our past as old awful beer that we used to drink?

Damn I can't believe the hatin' on the VB?
Lol, with your handle that is a very ambiguous sentance...

Nothing wrong with VB, just not much right with it either...
Still wouldn't turn one down (if it is the new old one - ah the memories). CD though, you can keep it.

OP, Ambers suggestion is what this forum is ultimately about, the love of beer. Good suggestion Amber.

Cheers,
