  1. “DH is also something I would do for it next time........“ So your not going to DH this time?
  2. Good one for Eddie, and he’s not raving now after a few of his boys have got into trouble
  3. Can someone explain:- Port Power claims it was established in 1870 however AFL doesn’t recognise this as they have recorded only the one Premiership to the Power and not all those since 1870. Interesting as all the Victorian AFL Clubs have their VFL records included in the AFL stats etc. I think the reality is the Vic AFL Clubs should not claim their VFL records as that was the Victorian Football League and not AFL. But let’s face it it’s really not the AFL but VFL with “invited guests”
  4. The maturing kegs (as I call them) are kegs that don’t fit my fridge, 2 are barrel shape with too large a diameter and the 2 other are just too tall. The ball lock connections are all the same. They work well and stop me from drinking the brews to soon, ha.
  5. Kegged today into a maturing keg and will leave for about 6 weeks then transfer to consuming keg which in the keg cycle will be at about 10 weeks+ when first pint poured.
  6. Sounds like it has turned out ok, the Magnum hops do have some similarities and are good for bitterness. Your choice I’d say is acceptable for this brew. Will await tasting and comparison report. Cheers
  7. And a St Kilda defender kicking 2 goals mmmm. The way things are going with tha Crows you might jet Gibbs back😂😂
  8. Well prepared, the 3 hop choices will work well together.
  9. Looks good Bert. What’s brewing now?
  10. @BrewArt Team. This seems to happen when responding to a number of posts, can the limit be removed? Thanks, Mark

    All the best for your mate Paul, good cause. A few bob from me won’t go astray.

    You buggers (I google with the lights out so you couldn’t see). I have trouble finding it now without having a “merkin” down there.😂
  13. Did another one, only 3 weeks kegged but boy nothing wrong with it. The challenger hops add that different fruity herbal touch.
  14. Follow the Brewprint recipe however dry hop the 20g Amarillo Pellets at day 8. My fermentation time records indicate a 14 and 11 day fermentation. The 3 day difference I believe could be due to the yeast dates, 14 days = 2018 yeast, 11 days 2019 yeast. I’ve mentioned before I was not a lager fan as disliked those on pub taps and the over the top hopped craft bottled ones. However a convert for Brewprint lagers, you have to give a few a go and this one would not be a bad start however look at the top ten spreadsheet in Brewart Banter
  15. So enjoyable in the droid today. As far as lagers go this is worth a brew. Anyone else done it yet?
  16. Keg into a maturing keg after a 7 day fermentation. Will keg transfer in about 4 to 6 weeks meaning consumption about 8 to 10 weeks. I think the Coopers Sparkling Ale needs some time. Will do a comparison with a purchased long neck. Replaced with a Revolution Dark Lager
  17. As at 6.20pm Adelaide time, all ok
  18. Just incase you haven’t :- https://brewart.com/101/wp-content/uploads/BrewArt-BeerDroid-Instruction-Manual-AU-.pdf https://www.williams-sonoma.com/netstorage/pdf/207349-BrewArt-BrewFlo-Manual.pdf
  19. Once you get going you’ll just love it. Have you downloaded the BeerDroid and Beerflo user manuals? It’s good to be familiar before the goods arrive. You can read them to your units. 😂
  20. Hi Clarence, Mark here and welcome. Will forward to the BrewArt team for you. Ps what do you enjoy brewing? @BrewArt Team
  21. I think I’ve come up with a good method to help mess/clean up of Droid overflow from the escape path on the left hand side of the lid. As I’ve just put down a Ruby Porter and a number of people have experienced over flowing with this recipe I thought “ be prepared” So using duct tape I’ve taped a folded chux wipe to the droid “barrel” just below the lid and a cloth at the bottom. The idea I think is self explanatory. Ps looking at photo will move it up so tape line is in line with the “barrel” top
  22. Put the Ruby Porter in the droid today. Did yours overflow @Paul84?
  23. Sorry, didn’t report on this, just drank it all because it is so good. It’s such a good drop I re-brewed it and kegged it today. Replaced with Ruby Porter.
  24. Should be good however the 30g of galaxy will change the original recipe attempt. Nothing wrong with that other than if it’s not to your liking , it’s your fault....ha ha 😂
