Have been visiting Brendale Brewing co for a little while now. Great little venue for a couple of beers on the way home. The beers are extract but are well done, i have had many all grain beers that are not the same level of quality and most would not pick it.
If you're in the area, drop in and ask for the discount for AHB members.....there isn't one.......but the prices are great and do not come with the "craft beer" price tag.

Extract just seems to be the 'easier' option as long as it's fresh. I reckon in a side by side there's sure to be plenty of 'experts' that couldn't pick one from the other. Having now gone from extracts to AG I feel like I'm still not in a position to decide which tastes better as yet. I don't try any AG of other people's, and my efforts so far are a bit shit.
If I was time poor and had a business to run, I'd probably go the extract option. It served me well for a long time.

Didn't mention extract at all mate, just your shit beers. Do you use extract?
I often use DME and or dextrose to boost my SG.

In this case, the business was purchased as an operating "brew your own" type microbrewery. You would also have to factor in waste management etc associated with all grain brewing. The young fellow that owns it has spent a few years there and from what I can gather really knows his extract brewing, of course there may be that slight extract taste to them (if you really concentrate) but they are very well balanced. The IPA is not as resinous or hop driven as I make mine but it caters to the locals in the industrial estate, which is a very clever business decision in my opinion. They must be doing something right as it gets pretty packed .
No affiliation etc, I just put it out there to support a local (around the corner from work) that is busting a nut, working hard by now having a tap room and continuing the BBY. And has decent beers on tap to get me through when I have been to slack to throw a cube in the fermentor.

Cheers

But you did just accept your a knob. :lol:

No I don't use extract, I like to spend 6 hours making 150L of shit beer at a time because I like to be consistent.

PS LRG I don't think I can change my name - Brad does it for me.

Half expect my name to be knobshoes tomorrow.

Probably shouldn't have said that, Brad isn't smart to enough to think of something like that.

Good on him for at least brewing and giving it a go as a business.
+1 for living the dream as opposed to me, dreaming the life.
:rolleyes:

Extract micros is how brew pubs made it into pretty much every town in the US over 2000 people. It's how most Best Western inns have their own brew pub. There's actually one of those here in Melbourne. It can be great beer if, as mentioned, you use quality extract. Like a Williamswarn for example. ;)

In what category? Champion brewer was Mr jeff McGrath. 3 X 1st places, all 3 all grain recipes. Bloody legend posted them all on ahb with process details. Don't recall any other recipes being posted (apologies if they were).

Not knocking extract brews. Had many a tasty extract brew and made plenty of god awful AG brews. If it's good beer, who really cares how it was made?

A lot of styles can be knocked out ok using extracts, especially hoppy IPA and APA ales, and stouts.
Others such as UK ales don't work.
Interesting that they have a lager on tap, that would be a good test, might drop by next time I'm up in AnnaAlphabet land over the holidays.
