    I live in Port Macquarie, and I brew AG.
    You are welcome to look in on one of my brew days, but I won't be doing one until next month, as I'll be on holidays shortly.
    Send me a PM if you're interested.

    All the best

    sav,

    Trent is a great brewer and a top guy to learn from. ;)

    Just ask and he'll slow down the descriptions for you, as well as the depth of descriptions if required.

    Well worth a drive. Just don't let him make U drink too much.

    Just get there after he's done all the manual calculations... :lol:

    Yeah, Sav, no worries
    Just drop me a line next time yer gonna be down this way and I will see if we can catch up and maybe I can do a brew for ya to see. If ya want a good home brew shop that is *reasonably* local, call Marks Home Brew (MHB on this site) on 49 696 696, he is in Islington (Newcastle) and has a massive selection of grain and hops, and the base of the informal HAG brewers. Not affiliated, just a very satisfied customer.
    Anyway, if ya came to forster today ya coulda sat in on my decoction weizen brewday (no decent waves to surf today, so I figure I can throw an extra step or 2 into my brewday for shits and giggles).
    All the best
    Trent

    Sav,

    I live in the Lighthouse Beach area, but I'm out at Wauchope twice a week, as I'm a member of the Wauchope Country Club and play golf there on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

    So far I've bought most of my supplies on line from CraftBrewer.
    I agree that MHB in Islington is an excellent shop. I called in there recently, and was impressed. All the malts and hops you need are there. Besides, Mark is a top fellow and seems to know what he's talking about.
    I crush my own grain, Santa brought me a MillMaster for Christmas.

    Sorry, I can't help you here as I've moved from Port Macquarie to Port Stephens. Sav has also moved from Wauchope to the Qld. Trent is still in Forster. I know there are others in Port Macquarie and Wauchope who brew, but I've not seen them on this forum for some time.
