Waiheke water profile?

Anyone got a water profile for waiheke bore water? I figure the suppliers all taste equally soapy and awful so they must have similar minerals.

A commonality amongst high-achievers: it’s their perpetual dissatisfaction with the status quo. Simply-put, high-achieving types are never f**king happy with the way things are – instead believing that they can always be better. I reckon it’s the chase – the never-ending pursuit of perfection – that groups the truly exceptional. (via Brew Hui Meets: Søren Eriksen | Brew Hui.)

Electric keggle HLT build - Part 2

Posted by Brett Mason on October 12, 2014 at 7:59pm 0 Comments

A quick update on the HLT build which is now mostly wrapped up and been through its first batch.

The lovely insulation is courtesy of a warehouse camp roll and a bunch of duct tape.

I was concerned about usability with the large gap between the tap, thermometer and sight glass and it has been a minor nuisance since the thermometer isn't easy to read from an angle. I played it safe with a fairly large gap to avoid cross over between the probes…

A raging Friday night..

Posted by Nicholas Jones on September 26, 2014 at 9:13pm 8 Comments

Evening all. Am mid brew with a 55L batch of 1.079SG Porter which is about to come up to the boil and I thought Id share the loves. The recipe is a bit of a bastard 11kg Pale, 1.4 Crystal 60, 1kg black, 1kg chocolate, 1kg Rye, .6kg Caraaroma, 0.4melanoidin, 0.3kg special B. Obviously aiming for a meal of a beer. Hopping with a small dose of Pac Jade to 20IBu and 200G of Tettnager at flame out and fermenting with 04.

Reason I came on though is a few boys from the forum have been over…

Perlick 630ss

Posted by Dave on September 19, 2014 at 11:45am 0 Comments

Hi all,
Would anyone be interested in two Perlick 630 stainless steel taps. Now surplus to requirements. I am in the process of putting together a serving fridge with three taps. I have decided to replace the 630's with the 650ss (flow control)
One is unused the other hooked up to try out.
Offers around $75 each?

Cheers Dave.

Timer for Hop Schedule

Posted by Shem on September 12, 2014 at 7:00pm 7 Comments

Hello all,

 I have started to get bolder with my home brewing, by entering the world of partial mashing.

 I found that I could prep everything in advance, but once I got to the hop schedule I was left worried about timing of the numerous additions I needed to make.

 After a few brews, and some googling I found that there is no timer I could find that was specifically built for a hop schedule.

 So, being a geek and a home brewer I decided to make one.…

Quick intro

Posted by Dave on September 7, 2014 at 10:59pm 2 Comments

Ok so after stalking this and other forums for the best part of 12 months or so, I though I would throw my hat in and share my experiences.

So my name is Dave.......and yes I am a home brewer.

I guess it all started about 35yrs ago with my Dad, being a beer lover, brewing his own. He used a kit that was put together by a local home brew shop, from memory consisting of DME, sugar and whole hops, on reflection quite advanced for its day.

I recall it being quite bitter and…
