When I use it, I usually use close to 2 bottles, fed gradually to 20L of Belgian quad. Might use 1 in a dubbel. I don't consider $24 for the rough liquid equivalent of 1 kg sugar cheap but as mentioned, the cheapness or lack thereof is not really considered either. If it was a must ingredient in every single beer as opposed to a special annual brew that gets aged for 1-2 years, I might approach it differently.$12 for a 500mL bottle aint cheap? How much of it do you use in a single brew?
I had a Tooheys New glass that my daughter broke the other day. Poured a good beer too, was most upset.Sugar would be the cheapest but does thin out the beer a fair bit, However, most commercial Australian beer has sugar used in the recipe. I like rice but then I go out of my way to buy the best Thai Jasmine rice which imparts its own special flavour in light lagers
Thanks for that, and right back atcha Just about half the price, but a bit easier to find. You'll find this polenta in the imported food section at Coles and Woolies. It's cheaper by a dollar at ColesMardoo- you can still get Bundaberg Golden syrup at IGA. I'm with you in that it has a far superior flavour to the CSR stuff.
