Fents homebrew is pretty rad. First mouthfuls are a bit dodgy, but then it starts to rock.

Asahi is the bomb beer.

It's a joke hat ;).

Anyone ever had "Great Australian Whire Beer" by malt shovel brewers I think, or like a 'radical splinter group' of malt shovel called something else.

wicked, haven't seen it around for ages tho, maybe its finished.

Was so nice tho

Pilsner Urquell or STFU :P

Actually, any Czech beer.

If you can't get Czech beer, Leffe is awesome, so it Hoegaarden, Schofferhoffer, Bitburger, oh fuck it I could be here all night.

DB Super Dry or STFU :P

I drank a mix of Carlton, M.B. and V.B. for the first time in ages and I felt a bit sad for the poor souls who have these beers regularly and don't know the (potential) greatness of a good homebrew. Of course, a bad brew can be devastating.

Just got a package from my HBS last week that contained:
*James Squire Porter clone ingredients pack (mmmmmmm)
*Malt Shovel Pale ale cansx2 (malt shovel stuff is expensive but well worth it)
*Ingredients for a 10.9% brew (barley wine)

Last week I bottled "The Winebanana" (the name is from a stupid misunderstanding of a breed of dog). At the moment "The Goose" (a tribute to BMX Bandits) cider is almost finished fermenting.

i thought there was a home brewing thread but this is the closest thing i could find??

anyway...

my brother is right into the homebrewing and has an amazing kit. he's just got a job in lebanon for 5 months and so we're taking over the brewing.

went around to his place on the weekend and he ran us through our first brew. drinking a few from his previous brews while we were at it. we drove it home very carefully strapped in with the seatbelt on the back seat.

i can't really believe how easy it is to make. lots of steps along the way and i can see how if you get one wrong it could really throw everything off but overall it seems pretty simple.

i can see myself getting into this!! :D :P

we just bottled our first cider a couple of weeks ago.

we have done about 5 brews in our new house. the last one is amazing.

tastes almost like a little creatures.

hops make all the difference.

the blackrock tins from NZ are quality too.

i want to get a small bar fridge without the freezer so i can setup a couple of kegs in it. like fents has.

Werd! Nice one, always drink that when I'm out. Only because nowhere has one of my other fav beers: Hahn Premuim.

Beez Knees :smt049 :smt049 :smt049 Favourite beer atm.

Had Bee Sting the other night too, nice, verry nice but not quite as good as Beez Knees.

Beer from a can = nasty! Unless you're a fan of that 'aluminium' taste. It's also been proven that can's are more porous than glass, ie. they let more air in/out - resulting in a less fresh beer than in a bottle.

Brown coloured glass is the best for filtering out the suns rays that can damage beer, then green and then the crappy clear bottles.

The worst of all are the plastic bottles, especially when combined with Carlton Cold. That stuff is for underage drinking only. :lol:

Hahn Premium is good!

I wanna do home brew too, but I live in a flat and I hear it stinks your place out.

excellent! yeah, we cooked up some hops for the one we did on the weekend... really looking forward to tasting it.

fents has a dedicated fridge??!!? awesome! :lol:


Direktor wrote:I wanna do home brew too, but I live in a flat and I hear it stinks your place out.


yeah - we have it outside, under cover though. it's not ideal as the temperature will fluctuate a bit and as it will get colder than you really want it to it may take a little longer until we rack it (so i've been told :P )

it's better than having it inside though as it's just too warm. if you have a spare room that's unheated or a garage or something i believe that would be ideal...

outside???

preeeeety cold for it. yeast stops working below like 15 degrees. it was 3 this morning. yeast go to sleep i would say.

sure once you have the yeast in, it tries its hardest to stay around the temp that you had it when the yeast was put in (cos its a chemical reaction it creates heat) but even inside it was hard to keep it above 18 degrees. the cider had to ferment for almost 3 weeks (even then i dont think it was finihsed) veeery slow fermentation that.

it doesnt stink as much as you would think Direktor.
