If you or your sons and daughters are interested in a career in naval shipbuilding, refer to the webpage in the Asia Pacific Defence Reporter article below. A College is being built to train workers which is a long overdue initiative.
Terrible news 5150…heartbreaking.
Can’t do anything.
Deal with as best we can. Look out for each other… Talk about it, share the load, show compassion and care
Yep, we had his wife and kids over for dinner…she has just started full time work, her youngest is in Y5. Her oldest in Y12, studying, holding down 2 jobs including doing his dads job to keep the family business going. No one has done anything wrong but there is a hard road ahead for everyone.
Mate good on for you reaching out, now is a time when people need to be supporting each other. It is amazing what a little act of kindness can do for someone that is struggling.
Mate its not a big deal for me, we love em and would have them over any time.
Exactly mate, may not seem like a big deal to you but I bet it meant a lot to them. People sometimes forget how even a small act like sharing a dinner can improve other people’s mental health.
I picked up a two-pack from The Good Guys for $580. Thought I may have needed a 3rd unit as I live in a large 6 bedroom, two-storey house but the twin-pack has plenty of grunt. Was hoping it would make a difference but I’ve got no complaints whatsoever now - my home theatre room used to be a blackhole due to extra insulation etc but now I can sit here comfortably with full signal strength.
Obviously sitting in there right now willow, is the forum on the big screen?
I was just playing Assassin’s Creed Valhalla on mine lol
When using a kit, try adding dry hops at day 4, then follow your normal routine & see how you like the result.
Once you’ve tried that you can then experiment (if you weren’t happy with the result above) by dry hopping earlier or later during fermentation. It’ll also depend on quantity of hops you used initially. If you’re using a standard beer kit that makes 23 litres, you should add around 50g of hops (for a Pale Ale).
The best Pale Ale I’ve brewed using a kit was achieved by adding the dry hops at day 4 and then also transferring that hop bag to the keg. Beer was a little cloudy but boy it tasted good! It was my own Hazy!!
Cheers mate. What pale ale kit did you use? I’m using the coopers.
I’ve been using the Black Rock Riwaka can and adding various combos of Galaxy / Cascade / Citra hops. But just yesterday I sampled a brew at the Brew Shop Kirrawee that was far superior. It was one of their fresh worts (Amarillo), with 100g of Simcoe hops (added at day four) and a US05 yeast. If you can’t get to Kirrawee they have stores at Peakhurst & Cambelltown.

I’d been around the corner at Sunday Road for a couple beforehand. They’re well worth the visit if you’re out this way. Gives you something to aspire to…
A few thousand klms away unfortunately lol. Ben thinking about trying a FWK. I’ll see how my attempt at hopping comes out
