  1. Past hour
  2. So are you saying that the pressure pushed the collar up?
  3. Today
  4. Unfortunately at my age, nothing but a nap!🥱 Cheers
  5. Bugger, lucky for me I do live in a pretty mild location, even when it gets hot during the day it cools right down at night. The worst temp my house gets to is 26. In saying that though being a fair wine drinker during my 20s and 30s, finding a location in the centre of the house like a linen cupboard is good as a location where the temperature stays constant. If that isn't an option, might have to look at the Missus and say "been thinking we need a cellar"...
  6. Hi Droiders Just bottled the Czech Pilsener yesterday afternoon. Store them in the Laundry for the first week or so just in case there are any bottle bombs. Reached 42 degrees today in the Hunter Valley . Enough to strip the keg threads and start leaking. Managed to get another keg collar on and move to a slightly cooler location. Hi w do you guys store in hot weather?
  7. No way out of business, after a few teething problems this is a real success. The virus halted their move into Europe, and this will come. BrewArt is owned by Coopers, biggest home brew suppliers in the world, even own your Mr Beer franchise.
  8. Your on the football, I’m watching darts. Your sipping “wicked night”, I’m having a “goat”. What more do two guys want? Cheers
  9. Hello and thanks much guess that’s good news as I enjoy this so much but afraid they will get out of the business. The more the merrier and hope the manufacturer prospers for many years.
  10. 😂😂😂😂 I’m sipping wicked night night right now watching US football but can’t wait for GOAT. On day 7 now and it’s Ambering up. Barely bubbling in window but still in fermentation mode.
  11. They are out of stock in Australia as well. Probably due to increase purchases for Xmas and due to virus home detentions. I know here in Australia they work over the weekend and stocks are usually back on the Monday or Tuesday. Not sure about the USA, hope it’s the same. Ps some here blame me for it as I generally get my orders in early, before them ha ha ha.
  12. One sip of the G-O-A-T and I’m anybodies.....
  13. Anyone know why the majority of brewprints are out of stock here in USA ? Thanks
  14. Sorry John, not meaning to be offensive about the pour but believe me there are a lot that don’t and the statement is only about the elimination of possible problems.
  15. Hey Mark, So I am putting in a measured amount of sugar via a dedicated scoop. Not sure of the actual amount but I have been using the same amount in a Grolsch bottle for the liquid hops XPA (and every other brew I make) for years and the results has been a reasonable head. This is significantly more. Not really a big deal, I'll just get another scoop and adjust accordingly. The head is far better using the dry hops, much finer bubbles and it stays all the way to the end of the liquid. I do know how to pour! Thanks for the tip re the E2 content, maybe I'll try that.
  16. Looking at the hop profiles might I suggest 10g Spalt, 15g tattnang and 20g Saaz. I’d try it myself but don’t have any Spalt so might try with the other two.
  17. yep 8gms each of the others, 10 of Saaz but i will be mucking around with those ratios a lot in the next year
  18. Yesterday
  19. Hi John. The XPA is at 5.5%. You could reduce this to 4.5% by dropping off one of the E2 sachets. With the amount of hops I don’t think this will alter the taste to any great degree. Are you putting in 2 sugar tabs per bottle? If so I’d stay with that. Are you using a chilled glass, slow pour with steep angle to start with? Are the carbonation bubbles small and appear not to be excessive? Cheers, Mark.
  20. I've brewed about 6 batches of XPA now using dry hops, tried my first bottle yesterday after 12 weeks in the bottle. First impressions are that the hops improve the flavour a lot over liquid hops (although I thought the liquid hops was great too). One thing I immediately noticed was that the head was huge, I think I need to halve the amount of sugar in the bottle to reduce it somewhat. It appeared to be much more bitter. Head retention was excellent. I bought a stainless steel hop container because I was fed up with messing with the leaky adapter (see dcm's post above), and so was able to bottle straight from the droid. However, does anyone know whether the alcohol content has gone up ? Half way through my first bottle (Grolch size) I I could feel the alcohol kicking in, after two I was finished. Yes, I know I am a wimp. If I wanted to reduce the alcohol content what would I have to do?
  21. 7 weeks in, pretty good comparison to Boags Premium. Not quite there but not that far away
