    We just bought a speed boat and I know from doing the Postie run on Raymond Island that there are Koalas there, it's a tourist attraction - what could possibly go wrong with some kind of high speed, dark, early morning jaunt to the island looking for scat!?

    When I was on Raymond Island a year or so ago there were heaps of koalas!

    Possibly all full of chlamydia :). Best we boil it well :)

    Settled on the ground mostly. You may find some get caught in the branch joins or hollows in the trunks. That would be the better quality skat I'd imagine.

    Probably head down to Eagle Point on Saturday @droid. You around for a beer? I’ll pm my number and we’ll catch up. Saturday or Sunday anyway, depending on fishing...

    Thanks for the hospitality yesterday @droid and apologies for the little tacker busting up your place!
    Forgot to mention also that the Riwaka flower brew grew on me and I preferred it as it warmed up a bit.
    @Mardoo I have some burners for you fella. I'm brewing in the shed all day tomorrow if you're free if not during the week is fine. I can even drop off to you if you have stuff going on.

    Eagle point is a nice place, plenty of options for the brew location too which may be best left till closer to the day to decide. If the usual applies where attendees drop like flies a week out then Droids house may be the go. If not and theres heaps of peeps the caravan park would work if we brew on their land and use the rotunda as a social hub.

    Hey Tricky Dicky,

    Welcome aboard. The case swap is a weekend where we all get together and swap beers. If you want to be involved you bring 24 of the same beer and you walk away with 24 different beers from everyone that has signed up.

    Also on the weekend we brew 6-700 litres of beer. I think this time around it's going to be a ESB. This gets divided up amongst the "cubers" who bring a 20 litre cube and take it home to ferment. This really has evolved to be what the weekend is all about. Brewing a massive amount of beer on a cobbled together system.

    Everyone brings bottles of beer and kegs and we sample these through the weekend. There is plenty of room to camp at these events so you don't have to drive anywhere. We start setting up Friday afternoon and finish up on Sunday sometime.

    Where about's do you live? You are more than welcome to come and check it out, be involved or just watch. There is something for everyone!

    Also I forgot to mention, we eat like kings! There is a food crew and we eat brilliantly all weekend!

    PM me or Idzy if you want more details.

    Sounds really interesting but as I am just about to keg my first brew kit and don't intend to bottle at this stage, how would it work for a keg only brewer? BTW is it being held at FTG ? I'm in Lilydale Vic.

    Yes being held in FTG.

    If you want to join in as a swapper - you need to bottle at least that batch. The advantage is you will go home with 20odd awesome beers from other brewers.

    If you dont want to swap you are always welcome to attend - hang out, watch the big brew, talk shit, talk about brewing, taste others beers. Quite acceptable to drop in for a little or a long while.

    Message @Nullnvoid or @idzy for the details you wont regret it. Its a great weekend no matter how much time you go for. And you get to meet some great blokes...and a few ordinary ones.
