LupuLN2 wanted

After drinking Magic Dust and 1 brew of my own with LupuLN2 I'm sold especially for dry hops. Whats not to love, more lupulin goodness and less vegital crap to soak up my valuable beer and make it taste like grass. Is anyone in NZ selling any that isn't Citra? Not that Citra isn't the best hop ever but a bit of variety is always good.See More

NZ limits to annual home brew production?

Posted by BeerBill on August 20, 2017 at 11:30pm 5 Comments

I am wondering if there is a legal annual limit for home brewed beer production in NZ. USA is often about 200 gallons per year. That's about 30 to 40 brews at 19 to 23 litres. Are we limitless or limited in NZ and where is the law to be found?

Today I cracked open one of the PET bottles of my first batch of all grain beer since it was firm although it had only been in the bottles about 2 days after putting it in the fridge…

Us cascade vs nz cascade

Posted by Kroydon on October 16, 2016 at 5:22pm 3 Comments

So I have gotten a hold of a "us cascade" hop plant which is doing great. Question is what separates the nz and us strains. Is it the plant it's self or is it the country/climate it grows in. Google hasn't helped me on this one. I'm not phased just wondering what to expect
