FRESH LIQUID YEAST!!!
DIRECT FROM THE LAB
Both Three Wolves and Green Beret are well worth checking out and, with a recommended price of $15 for a six pack – and less on special – represent excellent value for money. Finally it’s also worth pointing out that at 40 and 47 BUs (units of bitterness) respectively – that’s more than double the bitterness of Steinlager Classic – these new beers represent something of a landmark for Lion. I recall just a decade ago Colin Paige, Mac’s head brewer at the time, failing to convince his Lion bosses to allow him to produce a beer that exceeded 30 BUs.
Ultimately we, the craft beer people, should accept the blame for her demise. It has been proven that many of us are fickle, polygamous creatures not wed to particular craft beer brands. While nothing is inherently wrong with this sentiment, next time you visit your local beer store simply consider the implications of your choices. Then imagine a world without Dogfish 60 Minute, Sierra Nevada Pale Ale, North Coast Old Rasputin or any of the classic craft beers that are truly exceptional. Are these beers still relevant? I think so. I also think it’s important to show respect to these icons by occasionally picking up a six-pack or bomber, and sharing it with friends. Not only will you get to enjoy an amazing, classic beer, you might also be saving a life.
More than 3200 people turned out for the eighth instalment of the festival at Founders Heritage Park on Saturday to enjoy the sunshine, music, local food and, of course, beer. “That’s a new record. Best attendance ever,” organiser Eelco Boswijk said. More than 4000 litres of beer and 900 litres of cider was consumed between noon and 9.30pm, but Boswijk said the crowd was “calm and well-behaved”.
"It’s funny; I know people who would go thirsty rather than drink from a polycarbonate bottle because of the danger of Bisphenol A or BPA, which has been variously blamed for contributing to heart disease, obesity, reduced penis size, even making girls mean and making you stupid and depressed. It is a synthetic hormone that’s now banned in baby bottles and run off the market in the water bottle world. Yet that polymer lining in every beer can is made with BPA."
"The region has more craft breweries per head of population than anywhere else in the country," Dover says. The event now sells 3000 glasses and when they are done they turn people away. Each year more brewers turn out to create specially crafted beers that are first available for the event. Sometimes they make it onto the brewer’s staple menu. About 16 brewers will debut new beers - 8Wired, Dale’s, Dead Good Beer, Founders, Golden Bear, Hop Federation, Lighthouse, McCashins, Moa, Mussel Inn, Renaissance, Sprig and Fern, Totara, Townshends and more will all feature.

Made a big step towards my goal of going fully electric today. The HLT is now using two 10 amp feeds with two elements and it looks like I have enough power to give a decent boil.
The initial driver to add more power was the 95 minutes it took a single 2kw element to heat about 40 litres up to mash in temperature which is a big delay at the start of brew day. Normally I just heat about 20 litres for mash in which is closer to 40 minutes but I was trying out no sparge…Continue
Winery / Brewery at Eumundi in the Noosa hinterland has all Government Licences & Approvals as a virtual brewpub -Tourist Attraction [ beer, wine, cider, grappa & food & music ] but 76 yo owner needs fresh, energetic partners to reinvigorate the venue.

So after a wet run and autotune it was time. Time to brew and no more procrastinating.
I started contemplating this build nearly 2 years ago and starting collecting parts about a full year ago. It's been 19 months since I brewed at home.
Brew day on Sunday 7 December 2014 started really late, I had to pick up the kids from their grandparents and do some other stuff but in truth I was scared. Scared at how much more involved the process might be with 2 pumps…Continue
