    Tell ya what pouring beers in this heat really sucks. The first one is all foam, the second one is half foam and the third one pours nicely.

    Mine don't do that, worst case I get about a third of a glass of foam, but mostly about an inch which I let settle for a couple of minutes then top up. Or stick it in the fridge and pour another glass and drink the first bit afterwards.

    Same base beer as my last pic I think - but this is a glass made up from the last 2 kegs. One had 100gms of Citra pellets (which tastes great to me) and the other keg had 100gms of Riwaka but of the flower variety. Never dry-hopped with flowers before, I think there'll be more to come for sure. It's weird tho, not sure if you'd call it grassy but there's some kind of earthyness about it (maybe it's dankness?) The next 4 keg split will be Riwaka in one, Citra in another, Mosaic and Chinook in each of the others.

    The great thing is then I can blend from the tap and hopefully find a nice mix. This beer was 30%Riwaka cones and 70% Citra

    Citra is sooo gooooood

    Summer rye, no bittering hops just 75 gram of Motueka at flame out, closed fermentation at about 6 psi full hop flavour, not my go to beer but on these hot, humid Melbourne days, thirst quenching to say the least.

    Did it clear pretty much straight away? I get the impression it clears easier with some pressure.

    First glass out of the keg was bright clear. Not sure if the pressure plays a role with that

    My Bo Pils has been in the keg for 3 weeks. Since its the only beer i have on tap atm it will have to lager while i drink it.
    I had read that a little bit of melanoidan goes a long way. I thought 250g was a little bit. Ill try 100g next time. The brew day was a complete cock up. I ended up with 6.2kg of pils instead of 5ish. Even so the melanoidin is very noticeable. Ill try maybe 250g of munich and 100-50g of melanoidin next time. Maybe i should just brew a helles with saaz

    The lack of lacing is a bit disappointing too
