Hey Sama, Duane still has Wyeast though I bought the last 3068 he had though!
Send him an email, but if he can't get it in, I'll be happy to grow you up some from my pack.

I'm gunning for some more clove too. I've never managed to get any clove in my wheat beers, so I'm doing a long Ferulic Acid rest, under pitching, more wheat and doing an open ferment. We shall see...

Hey Everyone,
Quick reminder that the next Central Coast Craft Brewers meet is in 2 weeks time on Sunday 13th April at 3pm
Meeting place will be the regular Long Jetty Park (map attached).

The theme is Wheat beers, so if you've got some, bring it and we can compare and discuss techniques and ideas. If you haven't got anything with wheat, bring some of your beer along anyway. Especially if its good.

A small BBQ will be provided with sausage sangas accompany the beverages.

All are welcome - Mates, kids, wives, etc

Hope to see you there
Pete

Under-pitching with 3068 bends it towards banana.

Wasn't it you who told me that ?

Where's that video link with the interview with Wyeast???

Edit: here it is:

Ah, Peter sent it to me. The Weizen pitch rate is at around 15:30, but the skinny is: "Underpitch banana, Overpitch clove"

Damn it, I got them mixed up and thought it was underpitch clove, over pitch Banana.
Too late now. Still good though, but no noticable clove. F%*k

Nah, thats a good way to ruin a good beer. I'll keg it tonight or tomorrow. the jury's out on this one - not sure if it'll be epic or terrible. Could go either way.

How did the meeting go,

There were 5 of us.

It was pretty cold, we stood in a circle around the hearth, sipping beers, practising the rites of BBQ.

We tasted a couple of wheat beers, a sour, pale-ale, porter, and a 4-yo barley wine (Mmmmm). Did I miss any?

We discussed perhaps an excursion to Murrays out of Newcastle, given with enough people they will bus pick-up/return to Newcastle.

The next meeting was planned to be at someone's home, rather than the park.
