  1. I didn't give it much of a smell .. so paranoid about leaving it open too long I get my partner to take the photo while I put the hops in and quickly reseal. Can't wait to get home later tonight to smell & sample before bottling 😎👌
  2. Got that magical "Ready to Keg" message tonight... Just added the hops (2x H6) so will sample & bottle tomorrow night 👌👌
  3. Curiousity got the better of me tonight and I cracked open an APA at circa 18 days post bottling... and it was great! Can only imagine how amazing the flavours will be the longer the bottles are left but for a first try I am very happy with the result The cupboard the bottles have been stored in has been in the 23-26 degree range and seems to have treated them well. I didn't think I could be more excited about future brews but tonight's sample has taken it to the next level for me!
  4. A guy stumbles through the front door of a bar, ambles up to the bartender and orders a beer. The bartender looks at the drunk man and says, ”I’m sorry sir, but I can’t serve you…you’ve already had too much to drink.” The guy swears and walks out of the bar. Five minutes later the guy comes flying through the side door of the bar, and yells for a beer. Again the bartender says, ”I’m sorry, sir…but I can’t serve you…you’ve already had too much to drink!” Ten minutes later, the same guy comes barrel-assing through the back door of the bar, storms up to the bartender, and demands a beer. Again, the bartender says to the man… ”I’m really sorry, sir, but you’ve had too much to drink…you’re going to have to leave!” The guy looks quizzically at the bartender and says finally, “My God, man… How many bars do you work at?!”
  5. I was in a bar yesterday when I suddenly realized I desperately needed to fart. The music was really loud, so I timed my farts with the beats. After a couple songs I started to feel better. I finished my beer and noticed that everybody was staring at me... Then I suddenly remembered that I was listening to my iPod
  6. Cheers for the update mate was really keen to hear how this was at 2 weeks. Sadly sounds like the usual 4-6 week standard is needed (at least).
  7. There's always a place in my home for decent cheap beer, otherwise I tear through the premium stocks too quickly 😇
  8. Niiiice gents, adding this one to 'the list' 😇
  9. Mate couldn't have put it any better and exactly how I saw it too. If I'm paying over 50% I might as well just buy brand new with the comfort of warranty and ongoing support. Also, it's not like we're going to fire up a brew on the spot so there's an added element of risk of what happens if I get home and it doesn't work right ... Overall I'm ok with how it played out and will keep my eye out for future opportunities or Brewart sales. P.s. I would assume there would be a very limited market for these products 2nd hand as those interested have probably already bought one themselves anyway
  10. I offered a gentleman $750 for a droid/brew combo with a few brewprints but couldn't come to terms. He wanted $1k negotiable but would only go as far down as $850. Given the the flow is more of a curiousity than a necessity to me, it's probably for the best we didn't make a deal for now. If I could find a new or near new droid for $350-500 I'd be pretty chuffed, otherwise will wait for the next 20% off deal (fingers crossed for a Boxing Day sale!)
  11. Nice let us know how it is at 2 weeks; I see myself struggling to hold out the preferred 4-6 on this one...
  12. I've been using both but once I run out of Droid Cleanse I will stick to Starsan. Also it's so ridiculously cheap - only using 0.75ml per 500ml distilled water in a spray bottle. I bought a 236ml bottle for $15.95 so at this rate should last me about 314 brews lol. Am still wrapping my head around not 'fearing the foam' as it's a no-rinse sanitiser but that will still take some time for me I think. I'm sure the other gents can provide further details on it.
  13. Currently 2 days and 22 hours into this brew. Ended up using the H2Juice (Pineapple) I shared earlier. Hasn't overflowed but seems to be coming along nicely based on app data & through the viewing window on the unit. Looking forward to sampling this one when ready based on Paul's comments above!
  14. I've read this one ferments quite aggressively... only needs 9L and still prone to overflow (!). Can't wait to try this one; probably in 1-2 brews time (might lay down some newspaper / cardboard first!).
  15. Thanks so much Rob - this spreadsheet is amazing (!)
