    Hello,

    I'm throwing this up to gauge if there is any interest in fresh wort kits. I love to brew but don't consume very much these days. To keep my hobby going, I'm wondering if homebrewers without all grain gear would pay for cubes of fresh wort?

    I'm not looking to turn a profit, just cover the cost of ingredients and a few bucks for utilities. For example, an average batch would work out about $25 for a 20L drum (note this usually hold 22L of hot brew).

    Let me know if this might interest you. I brew a wide range of styles throughout the year. Located in Bomaderry/Nowra.

    Cheers
    Garf

    I go through a fair few FWK's when im strapped for time and need a keg urgently. Got a mate thats just getting a keg fridge this week that will only be using FWK's. Problem is were down in Melbourne. If you have any way of getting them down here, maybe do a couple batches and the freight may be spread over the cost. Think the freights gonna be a killer on somethig so heavy though

    Hey cheers for that. Yeah freight that far night hurt but I'll look into it. Appreciate the response anyway. Good to hear people interested. What's the going rate for a commercial FWK?

    Kegking, kegland and grain and grape are the usual go tos, start from about $40. My LHBS (greensborough) does them kit, dry hops and yeast for $50! Does some good ones aswell! Think he has a 200L system or something and does a couple batches a week

    Oh you from Newcastle? Then you're probably not the Mick Bourke I used to work for down here. That's good.... The price would triple for him :p

    Thanks for putting in a vote. Cheers

    If you can give me an idea of the styles you have available, I might be able to get some mates keen enough to make it worth the drive.

    Cool mate thanks for that. So, watigot? Right now I got nothing! I posted this to get an idea there was any interest. Since it's got some attention I'll put pen to paper and nut out exactly what I can sustain.

    To give you an idea, here's the brews I've got planned for the next few months:

    * Classic pilsner
    * oatmeal IPA
    * English amber ale (pseudo ESB)
    * Golden Gaytime dessert beer
    * Aussie sparkling ale
    * little creatures pale clone

    At a guess I'd say I'll have a cube up for grabs every fortnight (if I can find enough drums). If there's any opportunity to retrieve drums for brewers then I could bump that productivity up a bit.

    Garf
