Yeah, I'd be getting about 20 prints in the order, so 3 should be not over doing it

I worked on 10 recipes and then added extra enhancers/yeasts to make up other brews sort of at will, as I feel. 87 total items. Still have a few cans to use up.

I am going to do 20 and then order one with some ingredients to make my own brew...only to find out later, when I toast it as "special" , that it is actually already a current brewprint

Or a drinker :)

 

Reckon I'll be under a quarter a keg tonight...no cricket is an enabler

No cricket, long weekend = good stock reviews.👍🍻

So, given some of the news I received this afternoon ( not bad for me but for others I work with) I decided after being at the brewshop today getting some Saaz hops (100gms for 10 bucks) and talking about beer out of stubbies that I should give a longie and a stubbie a go tonight

Mark, you are right, they are better for head retention (crown seals). Beer is dry hopped and is very, very nice. Would really like to tie one on tonight drinking all the stubbies I can but ...

Have to say, I really enjoy drinking from the stubbie

Sneaky stubbie if this...FMD, this craps all over shop bought beer. I used to drink Boags Premium all the time at the cricket club, always enjoyed it but this arvo was thinking that was not as good as I remembered. Opened this and thought "that's why, this is just ace"

Sure is a top brew.

Could drink this all day long. If the APA is the brew that gets the ale drinkers on side, this would have to be the one for the lager drinkers

It might be the Tall Tale Pale Ale as the equivalent, see thread and a must brew (you as well Rod)

Apologies Rob for “Rod” above. Can’t edit it now, did the same in Tall Tale Pale Ale. Honestly don’t know how it happens but again apologies as it’s not good form.

Cheers Mark.

So, this is the one I dry hopped and hop pouched a while back ( mid Dec), the next one I have done, which is a few weeks away at the least is all dry hops, 20gms. I was unsure of the taste of that one so have dialled back to 15gms which seems to be good...but may not be enough come drinking time.

I think I am about 10-12 weeks ahead with brews at present but may need to bump up brewing in the next 6 weeks to get some stuff done before winter to bump it up to 14-16 weeks of stock.

8 Weeks secondary is a real sweet spot with this brew. Nachos, 4 stubbies and a long neck to drink and I am a happy man. This is the one I believe I put 15gms of hops in, can see 20 would be better but geez what a bloody lovely drop of beer

For me, this, Birra, LawnMower, Czech and Bohemian on a rotating roster would be just fine. In saying that, I would be missing out on some fine, fine beers but jeez, pretty sweet drinking

Couldn’t agree more. So much so the Czech Pilsner Kegged today, replacement - the delicious Belgian Lager. Can’t wait. I’ve got the lager bug, part due to Rob, thanks.👌

I am trying to put a bit of planning into my beers so I get that run so I can get a month of 4 kegs I really like, then the 5th week, try a different brew so when the Lawnmower comes out, I will toss up between Boho and Belgian and whichever loses that round goes against Birra
