Purchased Beers

Recommended Posts

Yep, it's OK, Id prefer it to Carlton Dry, the mid strength version is probably one of the better mids I have tried. I first tried it in QLD with my Brother in Law at one of those leagues clubs ( should be some of these in SA) it was the day before his wedding, we had spent all day at the Go Kart track, come back there and Imperial Pints for $4. 

Not sure it is worth cloning but

Well speaking of coincidences, lad came round with a 6 pack of the Great Northern , low bitterness “Super Crisp” 3.5% cans. Better than water?? Very watery imo, but in fairness sitting outside in our regular heatwaves this could be the go, icy cold though. I know some that love it, perhaps, no we droid brews are spoilt.

I think it is an indictment on brews these days that people will say "well it isn't as bad as..." and not name 1 but maybe 15 brews.

Has anyone tried the Great Northern Lager? If so your opinion. Would you try and clone it?

Top End Lager is the brewart version, maybe give that a go?

Thanks a Rob, doubt I’ll do that one as Northern no really my cup of tea although having said may be ok in a heat wave.

Same to you and enjoy your break. Rob being a cricketer himself (I think is about being “bowled over” in the bar) might like that one.

It is a nice pale ale . Hoppy but not too bitter 🙂 . Amarillo hops used so a good pathway to follow 😉

While your away I look up a few things, do you prefer a tin version or the use of Brewprint ingredients?

Ive never really played much with tins , but would give it a go. Id say I prefer brewprint ingredients jusr for ease 🙂 . Interested to see what you think could go together 🙂

Well everything that goes into the droid has to be ordered for me , so if cans is easier for you go for it lol. Just would have to get the hang of avoiding mess scraping out the tin lol

No the cans aren’t easier it’s just the stock I had/have before I bought my first droid. Once they are used up it will be brewart ingredients for nearly every brew, may do a can special every now and again?

Well I just unpacked my big box of ingredients that arrived yesterday. Looking forward to putting a brew on... this afternoon maybe 😄 . Only hard thing is once I am back to work on days i wont have time to keg/bottle until shift change. So will just have to sit in storage . Do you cold crash often Mark?

I don’t cold crash at all, can’t really see the point with these recipes. However note when the brew goes to keg you have 48hrs before it goes to storage. When it goes to storage you can manually put it back to keg mode and it will stay there. However if you miss out due to work and it does chill down to the 4C no harm done.

I'll have to try that one, the lager is alright and I'd buy it if it was on special ( I have a thing against 330ml bottles being 20 for a sixer)

Well until i got the droid i was spending around 50 bucks on 6 beers lol , so cant complain with 20 bucks . But yes beer these days is starting to get Exxy . This is why I am pursuing 17 dollar cartons 😉

Kind of feel bad coz I live in a small town that lives on Emu Export so a bottle shop that was catering for craft deserved business. But havent been there for a bit now though lol

Cricketers Pale Ale Brewprint clone suggestion.

Heres an attempt, will make a good ale in any event.

2 x E1, 1 x E5, 1 x X1, 1 x X3, 1 x H1 to be added at start, in water before the yeast etc.

 At end of fermentation 1 x H3, 1 x H5. Y1 yeast

Ale mode on droid.

If you do it I’ll be interested in your review and comparison. Note. If not to your liking then “I know nothing...”
