FRESH LIQUID YEAST!!!
DIRECT FROM THE LAB
The Hop and Beer Museum in Founders Heritage Park is on track to officially open next month. The museum, next to the award-winning Founders Brewery, is a response to the growing popularity of craft beer in the region. (via Raise a glass to this one, Nelson | Stuff.co.nz)
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.)
Many former Heineken drinkers have made the move to craft beers in an effort to feel part of the condescending elitism no longer afforded to them by drinking Heineken. (via Heineken Sales Down As Dickheads Migrate To Craft Beers | Waterford Whispers News)
Auckland had a growing craft beer market that he hoped to break into, he said. “The heart is in Wellington, but Auckland is growing fast for a taste of good beer.” (via 100 barrels of beer on the move | Stuff.co.nz)
Breaks my heart but lack of time for consumption and brewing means the gear's got to go. Will be selling separately unless someone wants to buy the lot soon. PM me if interested in any of below.Would…Continue
OK Beersmith, it is the dogs nuts, last night I learnt how to do water additions .. thanks Druid, but lets face it in this instant age of xbox gratification we just want it to work out of the box…Continue
We spoke about creating a discussion so people who have or people who are thinking about and/or building can share pic's info and pitfalls to avoid.Just about finished building my bench and hopefully…Continue
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…Continue
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…Continue
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?
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.…Continue
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…Continue
