Pretty chuffed with myself at the moment. Just came home from the melbourne Brewers meeting having taken out first prize in their kit beer competition.

Never had anything I brewed judged before so this its pretty exciting...

The funny thing its our was an out of date kit, left over spec grains and hops. The yeast was reused from a previous batch and literally tipped from one fermenter to the next.

I can am hereby referring to myself as an award winning brewer

Well done Beronia-every right to be chuffed, Just think what might have happened if you used new yeast and fresh goo. Might have got a second or third.

Congrats, there were a few entries too, so it's not like you were the only person to enter and won by default.
Nothing wrong with re-using yeast though, often it will be healthy and fresh and not under-pitched (but rinsing it first is not a bad idea).

Nice one. Looks like an easy enough recipe so should give other kits guys something to try out. Congrats!

I happen to have an out of date Tooheys Lager kit that I picked up on special from Target for $1. I was going to you it for yeast starters, but maybe I should brew with it!

Good work BNB.
