"The M44 seems to be going well. Pitched at 17C and raised to 19.5 over 24 hours.  Then up to 21C over the next 2 days. It has a massive krausen which has reached the to of the fermenter and is foaming out through the airlock.  Something…"

"no, haven't tried that one, just the M42 new World Strong, which worked out really well - and the M54 Steam lager, which I'm not 100% sold on yet. Did it kick in, how's it doing ?"

Mangrove Jacks M44 - Brown yeast?

Used  M44 for the first time yesterday and started regretting it shortly after opening the pack.The yeast granules were brown and after re-hydration the foaming yest was also brown.  Sort of a milk chocolate brown.  Expiry date was 12-2019 and the yest had been well handled since I received it.  I pitched 2 packs into a 1.070 Red IPA.Is this normal for M44?  Anyone had similar experience?  Wondering whether to get some US-05 and repitch.I can't help but think to myself "if it's brown, flush it…See More

Hi

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

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…

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

Posted by Ricky White on January 10, 2017 at 3:00pm 6 Comments

I'm fairly new to the hobby with about 7 extract kit brews and through the second lot of them I spent my spare time collecting parts for and building an eHERMS system out of 50l pots.

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 3 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
