Chinese apparently love the adjuncts like rice in their brews, but yeah I heard they are chewing through a lot of Australian malts as well.

I was of the understanding Boston Brewing Company was the biggest micro... prompting the head brewer to say that it's like "being the biggest pygmy"

^ Funny concept but I've always wondered if it would be possible to have a flexible bag you could ferment in. Reason being the cleanup would just involve throwing it out.

Let's say fresh wort kits came in flexible bags and because they're flexible the airspace could be all squeezed out, however once you open them up there's say 5L of head space. You add the yeast and close it off again. Then once the beer is finished and kegged/bottled you just throw it away.

Pretty sure they sell something like that in the UK. I remember my Pommy mate down the road telling me how his first brew was, in a bag :huh: . An extract that he just added yeast to

Really? Didn't know that.

I'm imagining a sort of semi-automated production line style fresh wort kit system. The bags would start off with zero oxygen (flat) and then be filled until the weight is right, and then sealed. You'd think that'd be the way of the future.

Years ago a lot of homebrewers would brew in a bag in a rubbish bin. (Not the bin used for rubbish hopefully)

Bit environmentally uncool though. Reduce, reuse, recyle.
