    Hey guys,
    Shaunos noticed I lived coffs and told me about the coffs subforum so I thought I'd say hello.
    Still a noob on extracts, definantly want to move to ag eventually though. 4 brews in and I got the bug :p
    Doubt any of you will want me at any case swaps yet ;) lol
    Looking forward to talking brews with you and learn a thing or 2.

    Cheers,
    Calum

    Nuttin wrong with extracts mate, I still do partials amongst my all grains. And my case swap was a partial to, tastes good, but after not carbonating in the bottle it was put down to not enough/tired yeast, only used one pack of US05 yeast for a 1.096 gravity IPA, slight overlook :)

    Hi Calum,
    We'll be doing an all grain brew night at Mother's Milk in Sawtell soon, so we'll get you introduced to AG properly ;)
    Let us know if you want a hand with anything or have any questions, I'm sure the other members will be more than happy to help out as well

    Thanks for the warm welcome boys, I live a (long) walking distance from mothers milk so I'll be keen for that when it happens.

    Did extract for ages when my second was born, before i got set up with a decent AG system that didn't take forever to produce beer.

    Perfected the art of the "10 minute APA". Nice drop and wouldn't hesitate to do it again if i was stuck for time and my kegs were empty.

    Hi all,

    I didn't know this forum was here - I'm in Safety Beach near Woolgoolga.

    I started on extracts plus steeped grain a few years ago, then progressed to BIAB in a crown urn. Now I'm on a 3V system with a HERM-IT coil and temp control - experimenting with step mashes.

    Good to know there's so many locals here.

    Late welcome to Calobes and Dr Rummy. Even though I am slighly further north (and therefore a better brewer and superior human being), I do head south occasionally and mix with the peasants.
