Default Want to brew a REAL Aussie beer

So it's been a while since I've been to the site!! Hope all has been well with my fellow brewers.

I'm just throwing up this post real quick before work, so I haven't researched any Australian beers recipes.

Also if any of you mention Fosters....so help me God......


I want to brew an authentic Australian beer. Preferable a pale ale but I'm open to recipe suggestions.

Thanks a head of time!

Cheers,

The latest issue of BYO magazine is all about Australian Brewing...and has recipes for several Australian beers...None of them Fosters, btw.

Does it cover Australian wheat beers (e.g. Redback)?

My GF is Aussie and that's one of her favorites, I'd love to be able to brew it up.b

There's an Aussie's interpretation of a Bavarian Weizen

6 gallon AG

5# 8 Ounces Joe White Wheat Malt
4# 6.5 ounces Pilsner
1# 1.6 oz vienna
4.3 AAU MT hood @ 60 (1.2oz 3.7aa)
WPL300 Yeast.

Mash at 153 for 60 minutes, recirculate 3 quarts of wort at 30 minutes to even out mash temp.

Sparge to get 8.7 gallons preboil

9 oz corn sugar for priming...

But if you are interested. you might want to consider the Tropical Flour Wit they talk about all the time on Craftbrewer radio...That one has orange and corriander, if that's what she's thinking about...

Here's one version of it. 021 - Witbier (Tropical Flower Wit)

In at least one of the episodes Graham Sanders goes into detail about his process of using regular wheat flour in it...

CraftBrewer Radio

The thing is they talk about it alot through the years you you have to dig through the podcast archives to find the actual detailed episode...

Don't shoot me, but fosters "premium ale" or whatever they call it, the bitter, isn't actually too bad.

I'm yet to perfect my Coopers Pale Ale all-grain recipe.

Does anyone have a good one?

There's a couple versions...and a good blurb on brewing it.

also on craftbrewer radio, there is an episode where they go into extreme detail on brewing it, and give an interesting recipe, iirc.

Any idea which episode it might be? A search of their website yielded nothing.

No time to do it now...leaving work soon...(of course you COULD buy a copy )

The podcast archives suck royally, I tried to find it for you as well, but there's no heading for it..I spent my entire Christmas Two weeks off listenning to all the episodes so details of when is a blur...

There's also the old on-air radio shows on here..But they don't have show headings at all...

Australian Craft Brewing


There's also a recipe archive on the site as well....


Scroll to the bottom....

I remember scrambling to find a piece of scrap paper and a pen to write down their recipe...I may have it at home home...
