About Me:
Our work recently had a survey. Q: Do you have a chance to do what you do best everyday? A: Until they install the brewery, its not going to happen. Otherwise I'm a geologist who helps farmers to plant trees to stop soil falling off mountains in the 'rapa. I also cook, garden and parent (he says modestly) on 17ha of Bambule estate, noted for its fine gorse and blackberry groves.

Brewing with Bambule.

Posted on October 11, 2010 at 2:42pm 12 Comments

I thought I'd put up a little photo essay of my most recent brew day. Mainly as I've gotten quite a bit of value out of seeing other peoples way of doing the same thing, like Mr Cherry and Joking. My set up is fairly modest, but its effective. But first some preamble...

I brew beer, but I'd much rather drink beer. In the past brewing has left me white knuckled, fists clenched, tense. I worried too much. I remember relating this to Soren when I first met him and he looked at me… Continue

Beervarna: Electric Kool Aid for the masses.

Ahh, Beervarna.

I love it. I tend to have this recurring feeling the day after that I have just participated in some form of group hallucination fueled by a pharmacopeia of malt, hops and banter. And I’m just a wallflower; the dosage could well be…

Hey, cheers! Yeh, I love that new Byrne/Eno album. I've been a bit of a country/folk fan for years but the "pop" end of both of those genres make me a little scared to admit it. It's like saying you like Mild - hell, I love mild!!!
It was nice to get a free plug to the Yeastie Boys. So much other stuff I could have said. I definitely thought I'd remember to plug SOBA. I'm not going to listen to the archive. I made the mistake of watching myself on TV earlier in the year. Was like watching a stunned rabbit in headlights (wearing an old t-shirt too!).

Hi there... r.e. beer swap... I've sent plastic bottles with NZ couriers (pre paid bags) no hassles. I have a couple of 1.125L bottles left - I'll send you 1 if you are keen. Just email me your address, and I'll send you mine: jo.wood@xnet.co.nz

Hi there - yeah mate I'm always keen! I can see the hospital from my place too. If they are around on the 24th, I'll be around and can meet up to trade no probs. I have available the following: Blonde Ale 5.5%, Special Bitter 5.1%, IPA 7.8% 90IBU, and a nice Hefe 4.7% - nice banana. Take your pick, and I'll spare a 500ml bottle for ya!

Hey there bud...

Just get your folks to bring up a swappa crate bottle - I'll swap back some IPA in one of those bottles too.

Tony - change the profile pic. You're hiding the Yeastie Boys tap badge in this one!

Oh, yeh... I was thinking Renaissance. It's a good pic, I like it. About to crack your mild... just making some dinner, so it'll see me through until I sit down.

Glad I inspired you mate :o) Im guessing you brew traditionally? If so it actually makes it way easier to caramelise, plus you get to sparge a little more so it helps with your efficiency if you do a full 5 litres!

Yeah - it definately appears that the majority of those photos are hop related! Those smoothcone hops ripped some decent wounds when I picked them! We ended up with 2 full 20 Liter bucketfuls of them... Showers hurt for the following few days.

Sorry I missed you. Funny you mention molasses... someone that I gave a bottle of Imperial PKB to was talking molasses to me last night. I've never actually tried it but I do have a tub of it at home (courtesy of Joking). How was the gig? Last time I ran to SFBH I waited 90 minutes for the band to come on. Yeasayer - they really rocked, so the wait was worth it.

I'm so big on drumming at the moment... sometimes I can't hear anything else. I really want to see The Decemberists, their drummer - John Moen - is really doing it for me. And Glenn Kotche seen him twice in the last year... phenomenal.
