Anyone want to do a brew-up/taste test/yeast exchange or whatever? I would be in for anything.
go for it Sydney brewers , I never here of you guys doing anything :(

You know would'it be unreal to have an Aussie ABS meet up :chug:

Plenty of notice , 12months??

In somewhere central , Adelaide? (Two airfares for me)

I know we will all say....great if I can make it <_<

If we can pull something like this off , I'll be there , no worries , and I'll help orginize. :ph34r:

Think about it :p

Yeah. Sounds good. Where??? When??(long weekend is out for me)
Hell yeah Rubes,

Though I haven't got any yeast to exchange as yet, still working on the AG brury (i do as much as I can before SWMBO cracks the sh*ts, then i have to layoff for a bit).

What yeasts do you have on offer?? And which ones are you after??
I have
  • WLP028 - Edinburgh Scottish Ale (1st Gen)
  • WLP022 - Essex Ale (1st Gen)
  • WLP833 -German Bock Lager (2nd Gen)
I am not after anything specific on the yeast front at the moment. Always interested in anything but.
I'm keen for the taste tests and yeast exchange.
Brew days are also very multi-tasking days, so takes a while to plan a brew only day.

As for yeasts I have:
  • WLP300 Hefeweizen Yeast (still in the tube. Starter being made later this week)
  • WLP400 Wit (Must be about 3-4th generation)
  • WLP001 California Ale (about 3rd generation)
  • WLP920 Old Bavarian Lager (also about 3rd generation)
  • WYeast 1084 Irish Ale (another set of starters being made in the next 14 days (about 4th gen)
  • WLP002 English Ale (about 5th gen)
  • Wyeast 3787 Belg High Gravity (this one is 2nd gen but old. Need to make new starters)
  • WLP720 Sweet Mead/Cider yeast (2nd gen)
  • Wyeast 3068 Weizen yeast (not sure on the gen or quality though)
  • Wyeast 1028 London Ale Yeast (about 3rd gen)
  • Wyeast 1728 Scottish Ale (about third I think? Linz ??)
  • WLP 565 Saison (on order)
  • WLP099 Super High Gravity (on order)
I also have some lager yeast slants given to me by another brewer on this board that I'll be culturing up for winter brewing.

Nice collection of yeasts there Doc
I have just recieved 2 WhiteLabs yeasts from ESB

WLP001 California Ale Yeast

WLP940 Mexican Lager Yeast

I am in the process of making a starter to split into bottles as per Batz guide (thanks Batz)
The North Side brewers meet first Wednesday of the month at Lindfield Community Centre.7.45pm for an 8pm start. Great bunch of guys very enjoyable.take along a bottle of something to share.
And that is tonight for anyone keen. I'll be there.
Hey Gerard,

Why dont you invite us all over to the brewpub for the do??????

you have a funtion room over there ???
We are going to have a tasting night in July probably towards the end of the month so that we have enough beer to see us through. It will be a Saturday night and there will be plenty of finger food etc. We will be posting invites here ans at the Craft Brewer site closer to the date

hows that Batz??? you motivator, you! ;) :p :lol: :D
anyone know of a brew club a fair bit further south of Sydney( and no answers from the Melbourne guys either) than Lindfield??

And Mels at Peakhurst is a bit far away too.
There's ALWAYS one!!! ;)

But the wig and pen is a fine establishment!!!!

And Im going to the next IBU's meet at Bulli down the 'gong too. :)

Anyone from Sydney's south/southwest going?? :huh:

Saturday 24th, noon till about 4pm. American Pale Ale is the brew of choice, so if you've got one bring it along. I'll be demonstrating how an AG APA brew can go wrong :angry:
Where did you hear about the IBU date? I haven't got mail about it. :(

Yep, Ill be going along - but I don't think I've got much available that I'd like to force on you all for tasting.

I'm even going to get the train down there :D
