"Perfectly carved for me, this one pours with a persistent head that laces the glass all the way.   Aromas of lemon/lime and sticky tropical fruit juice with caramel sauce. There's a hint of volatile alcohol but only a whiff. Flavourwise…"

Kauri Road Brewery 2.8

Posted by Barry on June 9, 2014 at 8:27am 1 Comment

Etch O Sketch.

Did a little etching last night in my HLT, worked out pretty good.

Despite the blurry shit photo it's actually crisp and neat. Each line is an exact 1mm tall rectangle. 

The only thing is it's a pretty light etch, whether that's because of the nature of…


Kauri Road Brewery 2.7

Posted by Barry on June 2, 2014 at 2:13pm 26 Comments

Finally got my wiring done, sporadic nights over a couple of weeks but I got there in the end.

I would recommend to anyone doing this to set enough time aside to do it in one bang :)

There's enough to this system that just when you have your head around it you discover some other little piece of complexity that makes you think really hard about what you're doing.

My timer is different from Kal's one on theelectricbrewery.com so that took a fair amount of…


Kegerator makes its appearance

The last few bits arrived during the week, so a few hours this afternoon and we have beer on tap.  Perlick 636SS taps.  Covered the fridge door in a vinyl blackboard sticker I got off ebay.  Room for 4 corny kegs in the fridge, and the freezer is still being used.  I might yet replace the fridge thermostat with a STC1000 yet as I did with my fermentation fridge.  At the moment the CO2 cylinder is inside the fridge, just waiting on some John Guest fittings to turn up so I can move it outside.…

Kauri Road Brewery 2.6

Posted by Barry on May 8, 2014 at 11:35pm 1 Comment

More bits arrived today. Enough to go forth and build my panel.

I spent the last few days getting the paint done, making sure all holes were drilled and clean, bits of filing and touching up paint, etc. 

Last bit of drilling was to tap holes in the heatsink for my SSRs, and through the cabinet door for two surplus kitchen handles I had left over.

Tapping the holes was clean and easy, I recommend this approach over nuts.…
