Are there any micro breweries on KI?

Yeah there is, though they aren't doing cellar door which is annoying, you can order and they'll send it out. I will try and grab some of their Pale for a comparison

So anyways, out at lunch today, had some really nice dumplings and some even better Pork buns but I had one of the KI Brewery Pale Ales whilst I was eating. A rather good imitation of the one I make to be honest ( The Brewart Cooper Pale is very good). Still, not worth 24 a 4 pack but...

Anyways, back to Adelaide tomorrow for the day and then back to my precious beers on Friday :)

Ugggggggggh, so this is the story.

Firstly...seriously, if you go to KI, go to Cactus and get the Pork buns and dumplings. In another life, I would have had 4-6 Pales and 8 Pork Buns and two serves of dumplings...I wouldn't have been able to move after but I would have eaten it all.

So, get back on Thursday, shopping in Adelaide and dinner at the Lenzerheide ( very nice restaurant, modern Euro/Australian) where I had a "Goodstein" or something lager which reminded me of canned homebrew but obviously nicer. Kids were well behaved and are all " That's our standard" the little buggers now when it comes to eating out.

Plan was today, Central Market and out of Adelaide, home by three. Wife tries to start the car this morning, did not sound good, like flat battery not good. I get her to move try and car starts, so we do the 15 minute thing, park and go to Central Market and get some food. ( Central Market is a big undercover market in the mifdle of Adelaide with fresh food, fruit and veg)

Wife starts driving up the freeway and the battery light goes on...and she asks whether that is a good or bad thing...I explain it is indeed an effing bad thing and say if we are really really lucky, the battery is old and won't take a charge. She asks what if we aren't that lucky...and I have to say to her, it is the alternator, it is dead and at 15 years, it probably will be and we likely only have enough power in the battery to get half way home before the battery conks out. My wife, the leadfoot then asks "what if we drove home at 220k per hour, would we make it?".

Bless her, she is the one person outside of a proper race car driver that I would feel comfortable driving at that speed but we would get caught and when they saw we had kids in the car, there would be trouble.

So I got her to pull in to Mount Barker and we at least made it there and the mechnic had a look, my mind was going "please don't be the alternator, please don't be the alternator...I know it is the alterntor" and the mechanic said "mate, the alternator has died"

Long story short $1100 later, there were other bits i wanted replaced, plus the battery was 8 years old, had to replace it so I wasn't stuck in the middle of nowhere with a great alternator and a battery which wasn't accepting charge...nice end to the holiday.

Mate i dont envy you.  My next few seasons i wanna tour around the pilbara and everything is either hard to get or expensive so i went down the pathway of a new car , so fingers crossed no alternator trouble for me . Sounds like a good trip until that point though

Don’t envy either. Rob you’ll now have to pay for it by the difference in your homebrew and equivalent purchased beer. So get drinking! And what an excuse for your “racing driver” wife to be given. 😂🍻🍻🍻

Could have been far worse, was lucky to be able to drive it into a mechanics who could source the part that day and have me back on the road a few hours later

Hi All

Just snagged this from beer store. I love all of the  Innis & Gunn range. Original is still one of my favs. But this new one (new to me) is bloody delicious. Excuse the pun 🤪

So had to try V7 of the Rock Juice , cant believe its a 10% beer , holds it well .. and considering the amount of Hops to go in it tastes balanced. Have the recipe too if anyone wants a crack at it

Man that sounds like a killer beer. Pirate life is starting to put out some out there beers. Had some of their sours recently . Tasty but very left field

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.
