Just remember , every time Penrith score …you skull …Geo has to smash a pie

If we hold Penrith to nil …@Geo has promised to buy a bottle of our favourite plonk

I’m in.

I’ve just done a count …got 14 cans …hope we show some guts

I got a 19lt keg, first half sorted.

What is in the keg is the important question

A local brewers version of great northern

Yeah not a fan, I recently did a homebrew Great Northern for my Brother.

Yeah no problem mate, I enjoy doing my own brews.

Brewed a pale ale from scratch today. Love to help people get started. Great hobby.

Nothing yet. I got a kegerator but get someone else to brew. Any tips on where to start and a rough cost?

I brew in a fermentasaurus, but have used the cooper fermenters in the past and they are fine, especially for someone just starting out. I use a fridge with a temp control to maintain temp for the brew. I then transfer to a keg. I usually have 2 19l kegs of different brews and use a 5l growler for storing in the fridge or taking to BBQ etc. My brew fridge is in the shed lol

I always recommend someone starting out to just start with a kit to get used to the process, avoid the Lagers to start with as they are more temp sensitive. Once you have that process down visit a brew shop and get one of their recipes to start to learn about making your own mash and as you become confident in that start the experiment with the recipe a little.

Pretty much just go get a cheap fermenter and a cheap brew and have a crack, if you enjoy it you can always upgrade the fermenter later. I love nothing more than the smeall of a brew fermenting away.

I have 2 fridges lol, one I have connected a temp control to allow me to control the temp when brewing. I brew a lot of stouts so keep those around 25 degrees, when doing a lager they are around 12 degrees. I wouldn’t buy a fridge to ferment in to start, just avoid lagers and use a jumper if it gets too cold or a wet tshirt if it gets hot and store in a dark place while brewing.

Coopers kits fit nicely in a bar fridge that doesn’t have a freezer section so I started with one of those.

My favourite brews are Stout recipes I have modified over the years. If I have friends coming over and know with enough notice I will find a recipe for a replica of their favourite beer.

My stout I have named Red Beard Stout.
