Belgian strong golden

Have any of you brewed a strong Belgian golden ale using Gladfield's Pilsner malt recently? Just wondering because I plan to brew one of these sometime soon and wondered whether folk were happy with the result they got using this malt for this specific style, or whether anyone found that they got a better result using a European Pilsner malt. I brewed a Pilsner recently with the Gladfield's malt and am well pleased with the result.See More

Matt Symonds replied to Matt Symonds's discussion IPA with lager yeast. Is it still an IPA?
"Yep I saw IPL mentioned around a bit. But you would need to larger your beer to really call it a lager and with these “flexible “ yeasts you can ferment at 18c in 10 days and not lager so it’s more of an ale in that case. Thanks…"

Smiffy replied to Matt Symonds's discussion IPA with lager yeast. Is it still an IPA?
"My opinion is that because the A in IPA stands for ale, it must be brewed with an ale yeast, however the NZ government are quite happy for Tui to be labelled an IPA despite being a lager. They say that they are allowed to lie about what it is…"

NZ limits to annual home brew production?

Posted by BeerBill on August 20, 2017 at 11:30pm 5 Comments

I am wondering if there is a legal annual limit for home brewed beer production in NZ. USA is often about 200 gallons per year. That's about 30 to 40 brews at 19 to 23 litres. Are we limitless or limited in NZ and where is the law to be found?

First All Grain Brew successfull

I finally finished and did preliminary tests on the eHERMS before xmas and this brew was just after xmas.

Today I cracked open one of the PET bottles of my first batch of all grain beer since it was firm although it had only been in the bottles about 2 days after putting it in the fridge…

Us cascade vs nz cascade

Posted by Kroydon on October 16, 2016 at 5:22pm 2 Comments

So I have gotten a hold of a "us cascade" hop plant which is doing great. Question is what separates the nz and us strains. Is it the plant it's self or is it the country/climate it grows in. Google hasn't helped me on this one. I'm not phased just wondering what to expect
