Hey all,Looking for some inspiration for an all grain Christmas/holiday brew. Something to go with a Christmas roast dinner yet still be drinkable on a hot day.Thinking something I can chuck some spices in (maybe a spiced ginger beer or saison?)Anyone else doing a similar brew?A bit of inspiration here on in this article from a few years ago:https://www.newzealandbrewer.co.nz/12-beers-kiwi-christmas/See More

Blocked outlet in keg

I have just kegged a hazy ipa that had some dry hopping.Was as careful as I could be when filling the keg to keep any errant grains out but some have still managed to get into it.Now the outlet valve keeps getting tiny bits of grain in it, enough to cause it to block.Has anybody else had this problem, and how have you overcome it?  Can I put some sort of filter on the end of the pickup tube?See More

Requirements for opening a nano-brewery at home?

Posted by Nicolas Tassitani on June 28, 2019 at 1:56pm 0 Comments

Hi,

 

I'd like to start brewing commercially at home and I’d like to know if somebody went through the process of getting the licences and permits to do so.

 

I’m based in Auckland (North Shore) and I have a 80 litres electric brewing system.

 

I did some research and so far it seems that I need to:

- comply and register under Food National Programme 3

- get a customs-controlled area (CCA) licence

 

Do I need an…

Electric Control Panel

Posted by milti stefadouros on May 24, 2019 at 2:18pm 0 Comments

Hello fellow brewers,

Thought it a good idea to put it out to the wider brewing community, is there a production made off the shelf electric control panel [nz or aus made] available on the NZ market? I've done some searching and it doesn't look good, ie there is nothing out there. 

following this line of questioning, if one was available though what would be a fair price to pay for it?

My system is as follows:

3 vessel [HLT, Mash Tun [infusion mash -…

Can I make a hop essence

Posted by Paul Ware on December 16, 2018 at 12:14pm 0 Comments

Hi, I am a hop fiend and have just made a couple of beer using hops in a muslim sock for dry hopping and the result was unimpressionable. Question is can I make an essence i.e. hops into cool water to extract the aroma and flavour (not bitterness) and add the essence to the keg? If so what temperature I can use cooled boiled water and of course test it in the beer first so I don't ruin the keg? Anyone done this? 

Why not 30L

Posted by Greg Hillman on November 25, 2018 at 10:58am 1 Comment

Hi Everyone. 

New to this site, Been a kit brewer for some years now. 

Question: Can you brew to the full 30litres in the plastic fermenters with making adjustments by adding hops and/or malt to keep taste.

Cheers

Hi

I'm looking to form a small dedicated group of Auckland Based All Grain Brewers whose primary purpose:

  • is to share and develop develop our knowledge of brewing through shared practice.

I was part of such a group back in the UK many moons ago and not only was it fun but we ended up scooping most of the prizes in the county shows - so the knowledge sharing must have worked but more importantly - we had great beer to…
