  1. Order in. The free shipping saving of $15 might not seem much but I look at it as say 5 packets of E1 for free.
  2. Here’s a pleasant shock for you:- Dan Murphy’s is selling a slab of 24 x 330ml for $81.99 ($3.41 a can). Now converting that to 375ml = 21 cans therefore = $3.90 a can. As you get the equivalent of 26 x 375ml from the droid 10l = $101.40 of value. Deduct the recipe costs and your so far in front it’s not funny.👍👍👍👌
  3. I drink and eat first, then I can’t ride. Ha ha
  4. I think Paul84 at Pt Hedland waited over a month. I’ve been ordering extra ingredients so as to build up a bit of stock for extra brews not accounted.
  5. Very good choices in pubs. Is stop 4 bed? 🤢😂
  6. Top stuff BrewArt Team @BrewArt Team
  7. Not hard to get hooked, and the Brewprint recipes/ingredients are first class imo. Haven't done the Celebration Ale, will be interested in your opinion . Cheers Mark
  8. Great it turned out, and your right about the carbonation. Hopefully will build up over the next few weeks.
  9. Correct, recipe states ingredients before the yeast, at end only stipulating what yeast to use. Can see the confusion a bit🤔🤭🤫lol
  10. Good move, need to do a Deutsch Lager myself, thanks for the reminder. 🤔🤗
  11. 6 weeks since kegged, hallertau dry hops are a real treat in this one. Very enjoyable and deserves the top 10 placement.
  12. Is it free delivery time? I’m out of E2, how did that happen! Still have other ingredients to brew with.
  13. A week later and the flavours still intense, an ale to be had.
  14. Sorry can’t help you, fair but to it going from all grain recipe on Google.
  15. Now that does look like a nice drop, good head and carbonation. Impressive pour from the Beerflo.
  16. Ps Forgot to mention, don’t do whilst droid is testing or in heat/cool mode
  17. W-34/70 yeast would be a good choice however talk to the brew shop.
  18. I dry hop during the fermentation process generally near the end and carefully opening and closing the lid has been no problem. The important thing is to lift and replace lid slowly so as not to create a push of air into the fermenter thus replacing what co2 coverage you have. If all is prepared, lid off, hop bag/ss bomb in and lid on will only take a few seconds. Note: whatever you use for the hops must be sanitised and so should your hands in preparation and placement. (US starsan is a top sanitiser) Cheers Mark
  19. Sediment in the first pour is due to it sitting in/close to the tap. You can pour off a bit in the beginning to avoid this. The XPA is fairly dark and I’d say 5 to 6 weeks is a reasonable time for the hops to infuse and flavours to develop however as you have bottled it is good to follow the development by having one at 2 weeks, 3, 4, 5 and 6 weeks. In the main topic list under BrewArt Banter there is a thread titled “Bottled Beer Consumption Times” which may help.
  20. Good looking drop, but honestly you’ll love the the XPA. I’ll await your assessment. Cheers Mark
  21. You have done the right thing changing back to keg mode, why it went to store? should not happen for 48hrs. See how your next brew goes. Cheers Mark
  22. No problems Joe, dry hopping is fairly easy so when your ready. 3 liquid sachets should give it a nice hit, won’t be overpowering and will suit this ale. Cheers Mark
