  1. Sorry John, not meaning to be offensive about the pour but believe me there are a lot that don’t and the statement is only about the elimination of possible problems.
  2. Looking at the hop profiles might I suggest 10g Spalt, 15g tattnang and 20g Saaz. I’d try it myself but don’t have any Spalt so might try with the other two.
  3. Hi John. The XPA is at 5.5%. You could reduce this to 4.5% by dropping off one of the E2 sachets. With the amount of hops I don’t think this will alter the taste to any great degree. Are you putting in 2 sugar tabs per bottle? If so I’d stay with that. Are you using a chilled glass, slow pour with steep angle to start with? Are the carbonation bubbles small and appear not to be excessive? Cheers, Mark.
  4. So right Rob, just finished my keg yesterday being at 8 weeks. I now realise I have none in stock ahhhhhhhh, will be the next one in.
  5. Only 4 days in, it will develop, so no worries at this stage.🤗
  6. Order in Rob, no soup (I mean ingredients) for you today! ( for those that don’t know the “no soup for you....” is a famous episode of Seinfeld - “The Soup Nazi”.
  7. Thanks, appreciate. Now the cheeky bit, any chance of free delivery on say over $200 before then? (however if you don’t ask, you may not get)
  8. Looks a nice drop Andy. Unfortunately 10l is sometimes just not enough but your right the high alcohol % can limit consumption so it does last longer.
  9. BrewPrint/ingredients etc orders to beat Xmas rush, has a close off date been set? Thanks @BrewArt Team.
  10. 40 plus for the next few days here in Adelaide, have plenty to drink until the Pilsner is ready. Do you have a recipe for the clone? Cheers, Mark
  11. Some foods and sauces can spoil a good drink whereas others really enhance. Example, a wood fired margarita pizza with Birra Italiano, a top match. There is a main thread on food and beer pairing.
  12. Keg the Pilsner on 19/11 so will have to wait awhile.
  13. Yes you could put your other kegging peripherals inside the droid during the cleaning process. Be careful not to scratch the internal wall/base and make sure you rinse everything. I’m not sure about the steamer as to whether it will effect the tubing or not but it does sound like a good idea. One thing though, many people get confused about cleaning and sanitising. After cleaning you should sanitise all that may come into contact with the brew. Most of us a product called “Star San” or “Stellasan”. It mixes at 1.5ml/litre, is non rinse, reusable and doesn’t have and effect upon the beer. Dipping stuff into a solution for a few minutes and a spray bottle of the solution will be your best friend. Don’t forget to pull your tap apart, clean and sanitise. Cheers, Mark
  14. Hi Steve and welcome to the forum. You are correct, there was recently a change from the liquid primer to solid. As you state, one for each keg and not in the droid. Cheers, Mark
  15. I confess. Two weeks and a bit kegged and carbonated (by co2). In the fridge where it should sit for at least a week before consuming. However a taste today, just a taste has lead now to 3 x 560ml dimple mugs. Can one ever stop, can I change to another of the 3 kegs in the fridge? Some how I don’t think so, not today. 😁
  16. This is an exceptional amber ale, rated up there with the best.
  17. Kegged into a maturing keg after an 8 day fermentation. Boy, this was the hardest so far to manually clean the internal dry krausen ring. (and do this straight away). Should have got the vinegar in hindsight.
  18. Yes it can be fixed. I’ll refer this through to @BrewArt Team and they will certainly help. I believe the repair can be done yourself but info by them is needed. Cheers, Mark
  19. Hi Brett. Are you here or in America, it helps with actions. Haven’t had that problem and not good.
  20. Not so sure however can’t comment unless you tried. I note the Pumkin is 8% and the Rock Juice at 10%. Unless you sip, the night could be quite short lived.
