Hi Fellow Adelaideons

Well I am coming to live in the best town (apart from the water) in Australia.

We have signed a contract on a house at the base of the Beutifull Barossa Valley - Lyndock.

We will be in Adeailde 07 Oct03 and moving into our house on the 07Nov03.

Do you guys what to arrange a brew get together?
Also, are there any brewing co-ops out there that have arranged for bulk grains and hops.

I have been reliably informed that there is a north side brewing club in Springton/Mount Pleasant.

Any other brewing info - allready know the grumpy's, have not met Jovial Monk yet - that would be good to know.

Looking forward to hearing and seeing you all over there...
and sharing home brew or two, three, four or more. :chug:

GMK,

Have you looked at the Aus craftbrewers website's list of brew clubs in SA?

If not look here and go to the "Club Info" link
http://www.craftbrewer.org/

Only just saw this thread, been a bit busy lateley...

I'd also be interested in a get together in the Northern Suburbs.

I probably don't brew enough to help meaningfully in any co-op, but it'd be cool to catch up / have some people to try my brews :unsure:

I am on there e-mail list.
No pun intended - but the guy i had to e-mail is named
Mark Hopps :lol:

Gawler is not far from you Jazman.
Jazman - I might be able to get you added to the co-op as well.

Jazman,

The guy that has just done the pest inspection on my house - his brother runs Adelaide Maltings. :D

When i get over, i will be having them both over for a beer. :chug:
Will see what deal i can get on bags of grain direct from them...might be able to barter some home brew...or better yet...become the Adelaide Maltings home brewer grain tester/brewer.

How GOOD would that be! :rolleyes:

Well i have contacts in a small brewing co-op over there....might be able to welcome more...over here the min order is 50 bags from Wes at maltcraft or there is a 1.10 picking fee and the freight is a bit extra.

This is from/by the local HBS.

Last i heard - they upped the minimum order to 200kg....
Will just have to ask the guy that runs it. You cant get what you dont ask for.

First thing is to get a price list and find out if i need an ABN number.
Then i can put it out to the co-op and the list....

Will just have to wait and see. Nothing ventured/Nothing Gained.

sounding good.i have an abn.you can get one easily anyhow.
love too see the prices.i'd expect to be able to get amc pale malt for as little as 50-75c a kilo in bulk from the wholesaler.
i'd buy about 50kgs every couple of months.or at least 200kgs every 6 months.

cheers jayse

just did two trips up and back just past lyndoch today.
did a gig at barossa novatel resort.took about 40 mins from my joint.
easy drive except those bloody 55-90 k curves every 200 m after gawler.those 15 kms' of curves make it a task driving.

anyway next time i do the trip i know there will be a good beer stop on the way.

Too easy...will look forward to it....

Can you sing "on the cover of the rolling stones"

And my wife's favourite " Sometimes when we touch"

Could arrange a gig for my house warming.
