this was brewed for the Rust in Peace anniversary tour last year... subsequently I got to meet the band and give them a bottle ! \m/
I also got Dave Mustaine to sign the picture...
this was brewed later on, Good Mourning/Black Friday Stout..
Well I'm well into my Brewtroller Build so I'd thought I'd document the whole process.
Building an Automated Brewing System
I have been brewing all grain in 20L batches for a couple of years now. I have been using a 32L pot which doubles as a HLT and a Boiling Kettle, recently I started using the Brew in a Bag (BIAB) method which has proven to…Continue

As we travel around the country we plan to also visit some of the great craft beer bars this country now has. But what makes these bars great and successful is the awesome customers they have. Because these people love craft beer. Just like us.
So we invite you to come join us, after a busy and taxing day filming at breweries ;-) , to have a beer. We would love to meet some of the great fans of craft beer, to balance this TV series. Like meeting the people on the other side…Continue

Today I was surprised to be reading the Sunday Star Times and find an article that had stemmed from a Twitpic http://twitpic.com/2znukp I had posted on Twitter a week before. What I thought was an innocent mistake and a bit of a laugh, has made the national weekend newspaper.
Really people, this is news?
So I have some thoughts about this.
1. if this makes the news, then we live in a really fantastic, easy…Continue

I just want to put out there what has been on my mind lately. It's a little bit random, so please bear with me a moment if you will. Also - I'm sure in the past I've touched on it slightly... but I want to make explicit my…Continue
Anyone have any ideas on how I can make an Eisbock? I have tried in the past and all I got was an iceblock (not icebock!) haha
As Joking mentioned in a previous post, he made me a pilot brewery. I got this on Monday and yesterday I finally got around to playing around with it. I like to get straight to the point and instead of brewing a pale ale just to see how the system worked I went for gold, pushed the system to the max and made a big barley wine. This is also sort of a tribute to our first child who can arrive any day now, I plan on cellaring it for as long as possible,hopefully for 21…Continue
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…Continue
After a great many hours in the workshop, countless welding flashes, a few trails... a few errors. After many a phone call from the Wife asking when I'll be home, and after more than my fair share of burns (from resting my arm on freshly welded steel) - Oh and I can't forget about all the singed eye brows, eye lashes, arm hair and head hair...
I have completed a trial batch on my best performing and ideal home brew system.
Dunno what I was thinking on this one, but I ended up with about 15 Liters of 8% Ice…Continue

Yeah - it's been a while since I wrote one of these. I hate typing mostly... that's why. But I had a real serious incident during my brew today. You see - I had mashed in as usual. I mashed for around half an hour before I decided to start recirculating. I had already started collecting and heating my sparge water...
Then the power went off.
So instead of panicking, I decided to sprint around the house in my underwear saying this like "Un-fucking-believable"...…Continue
