  1. Oh hum, thought there might be some offer on for Australia Day? Not too late for January specials.
  2. The keg seems to be over carbonated. Is there a way to release any of the pressure? When over carbonation happens with a ss keg, you release the pressure via the pressure release valve, wait about an hour, test pour, still frothy, release again, test etc until the pour is good. That way not much beer is wasted and you end up with good beer.
  3. Understand fully. Keep the forum informed if you would, we like to help each other out, banter a bit and just pass on info and opinions. Sorry couldn’t help further with the clone. Cheers Mark
  4. I stand corrected, the Brew Shop guy is correct in that they are best stored in the freezer after opening. I’ll change my procedures as of now. They are ok to store in the fridge before opening but the freezer will be best practice from the start. Thanks, learn something new every day. (at least no real harm done)
  5. They come in vacuum sealed bags. After opening I put the bag in a sandwich press seal bag and back into the fridge (stops the hop smell in the fridge although nice).
  6. 7-8 bucks for 25gs is very expensive. Appreciate your support of the local brew shop but that’s adding a fair bit to the cost of your brews. I buy local, generally 9-12 dollars for 100gms, that gives 5 brews. I also buy of eBay. Just search hops, heaps with free postage. Direct from Melbourne or Sydney most of them.
  7. I thought you got into hop pellets and your ball and chain set up?
  8. No I didn’t add any hops, only hops would be in the 1/2 a can of Coopers Draught I used. I’d say the Hallertau would work well. Give it a go. Say 20g?
  9. Sorry but don’t want to appear silly but what’s a LBK b4. You “pitched the yeasts couple of days before hand.....” A yeast starter? No problems, just need to understand.
  10. Good stuff. Personally I wouldn’t use the dextrose as I believe it adds to that “tang home brew taste”. Add extra malt. Now Starsan is great and is reusable, so don’t toss it. Now if you talking about the 23l plasict fermenters, don’t have to wait if you have a laundry sink or a large tub/esky the fv will sit in. Freeze a 2lt plus drink bottle, put the fermenter in a large garbage bag (protects the tap), put in the sink etc and fill half way with water, drop in the frozen drink bottle. You’ll be surprised how good this work. Obviously the trick is to have another frozen bottle so you can keep changing over.
  11. Welcome Dale, Mark here. Trust you’ll get the leak fixed, Rob’s the Beerflo guru. What styles of brew do you prefer?
