  1. You can say that again. Correct again with the $17 beers. I find all the recipes end up being a reasonable price for the quality.
  2. Thanks Rob. It’s on my list to do again.
  3. Thanks for response David, didn’t consider voltage etc. With a converter and freight and the risk of “rough” handling doesn’t make it worthwhile. As said, great offer and I’m sure will be snapped up. Thanks again Mark.
  4. Yes, for a tasty hop flavour. As the dry hop part is only for 2 days I find it is not over powering.
  5. Is it feasible to ship to Australia? If so for postage costs I’m at Noarlunga Downs, South Australia post code 5168. Great offer by the way. Cheers Mark
  6. This is another top drop. Kegged on 16/6/19 so well settled. The recipes and performance of the Beerdroid are excellent. This is a sweet malty Pale Ale with a dry finish rather than bitter.There is a hint of “toffee” as the promo states. Enjoyable brew again drink.
  7. I use a wooden door wedge and put it under the back of the droid so it tilts forward. Then I wipe down the sides, rinse and let about 1/2 litre of clean water sit in the bottom for about 15mins to loosen the sediment. With a bucket underneath I remove the tap and bung, drain out the sediment using more fresh water.( refer thread on “Cleaning Tips for Beerdroid”) When done, check the inside and wipe clean with a dry clean Chux wipe (up the tap spout as well). Lid is cleaned and dried. I then spray the lid (ensuring the seal is done) and inside of the unit with Star San non rinse sanitiser. The tap and bung have been cleaned and sanitised. Replace and away we go. It’s a thorough job, worth while and doesn’t take long. Ps. When I got the unit it had the troublesome red bung tap, emailed and was sent a new version within days. Great service
  8. Hi Damian, appreciate this is an old post however I’m interested in that you used 11 litres in the Beerdroid rather than the 10. Can you recall if you had any problems with this like overflow of the krausen? Have you done many more brews at 11 litres? Thanks Mark
  9. Thanks Hugh for the response. Liam was correct, forgot about the yeast cake at the bottom. Do you brew regularly and are you only using Brewprints (for the cocktail sugar 😋) or mixing the brewart ingredients with other ingredients?
  10. Hi BBB, sadly no one replied however activity here now. Did you try it out? If so how did it turn out? I would suspect ok as bulk priming in a secondary fermentation container often done particularly with all grain brews. Cheers Mark.
  11. Thanks for that, very helpful. Will save to excel.
  12. Two droids, great. Thinking about that myself. Rob, winter is a good time to practice drinking for summer. 😋. Turn your heater up. So you can follow the Brewprint recipes do you know what hops are for the H 1 to 7 range. There is this info somewhere in this forum. I’ll try and find it if you don’t know.
  13. Review just published today in Brewprint. “ “Put this one down on 28/5 and kegged on 7/6/19. This is a really crisp enjoyable lager. Sweet malty flavours backed with a slight herbal finish. This a brew anytime drink.” Its a great drop and hoping the Belgian Lager you like is just as good. I would brew this one if I were you.
  14. “Body” is a good word. The fresh hop pellets do give a better result than the sachets in flavour strength and in noting the hop flavours.
  15. Thanks that’s encouraging, as I enjoy the Bavarian Lager.
  16. Have put the his one in the droid 16/7/19, if anything like the Bavarian Lager then I’ll be happy. Will report in due cause.
  17. Kegged 16/7/19 and will report when ready and being consumed. Have replaced with a Belgian Larger Blueprint.
  18. Yes you certainly could or cool off the outside of the plunger with cold water/ice. No problems either way.
  19. If you like hop type flavours then a hop tea at the beginning and a dry hop at the end will give you that. A good example is the Coopers Session Ale, I do a tea, steeped for 20min (other than the plunger a hop bag into a litre of boiled water in a sterilised saucepan works as well) and then dry hop at the end for the two days. 12.5g of galaxy pellets and 7.5g of mosaic for both hop additions is a good start.
  20. I make a hop tea by using a sanitised 1 litre coffee plunger. Add the hop pellets, pour in just boiled water and let it steep for 20 minutes. Now depending upon the recipe you can add the liquid to the droid before the yeast (this will be a variation from a Brewprint recipe as they stipulate adding the hop sachets at the end of fermentation). You could add a hop tea at the end as well (making sure it is cold/room temp) however if I dry hop I use a hop mesh bag and add it when fermentation has finished and leave it for the 2 days of the keg mode. Remove and then keg/bottle. Picture above shows floating tubing attached to a mesh bag, tied off at the open end. I have worked out that 10g of Pellet hops equals one Brewprint sachet equivalent. Personally I find the pellets as a tea or dry hopped are move intense inthe flavour. Hope I’ve made sense. Cheers, Mark
  21. Not as strong, less of an intense flavour and not as bitter in the finish. I like the Coopers Pale Ale however not a session drink for me, however the American Pale Ale is easy going, will be great in summer. Cheers, Mark
  22. Will give that a try Rob. I think you will find the Birra Italiano very similar, easy drinking and Morrish.
