Hi Team,
Completed my trial brew - a Tumut River Brewing Company Australian Pale Ale called Hitchiker Guide to the Galaxy. I grabbed a 19l keg of it at Christmas after building out a keezer. I liked it so much I purchased a wort of the same for my trial brew using a 3V system I pulled together. Pre-hopped it was simply a matter of diluting it to 19 litres adding the yeast and cracking on. From memory it is slightly less bitter and slightly lighter than that I grabbed in the keg - but I find the balance a little better. Could be wishful thinking too!

Pictures are of the first glass out of the keg - after 10 days at 10psi. Nothing poured off - straight from keg to glass so a little more head than the following glasses.

If you are about the Snowy Region it is well worth dropping into the brewery. The wort is available direct from them - but in my case I picked it up from my LHBS.

I have uploaded the details on Brewers Friend here if you are interested. Worth a crack - four out of five stars from me - but probably my last extract as I have the first AG cold crashing as I type!

Cheers n Beers
