I re-use Asahi or Monteiths bottles. Have also used Heineken too. Never lost one yet!

Hi
I'm brewing out in South Auckland. Been going for about two years of which one year has been AG BIAB. Absolutely love it. Still learning some techniques and me and my helpers are having fun working our way through the Clone Brews book. Pretty keen on getting into kegging in the future. At the moment I'm just using the $30 portable stove from Mitre 10 and this is doing the trick (I usually go through about one and a half canisters of gas).

its looking good. sounds like your getting serious.....
It'd be wicked to do it for a living, but I can handle doing it as a hobby etc.

Bottle my true blonde tonight, took awhile, but i passed the time with some epic tastes good so far, slight cascade finish so far, give it a couple of weeks.

next up on sat my pale ale again, with biscuit malt and a hop change around, nugget and cascade again, just different quantities.

Hey Brendos, nice dog bro.
whats in the clone brew book?? anything worth pinching??! lol

@Brendos - welcome along to the kiwi madness!! How long does it take for your portable stove to get a rolling boil? I looked at one for random brews at the beach etc but went with a proper gas ring burner from Bunnings.

@crusader1612 - I'd love to spend more time getting better gear, but alas, money doesn't grow on trees But yeah, I enjoy good beer, so brew I it. Next on the agenda is getting at least one tap and perhaps a stainless steel braid in the bottom of my smaller pot for a mash tun. Once I do that I'll drop the BIAB and become a fully fledged AG Brewer

I have a feeling my latest brew, which was supposed to be a porter will now become an American Mild Ale. I say American more so than English because it has a ****load more hops in it

Anyone else become a beer snob? I fond I don't really drink any of the big name brews anymore, they just have no flavour....

It only takes about ten or so minutes to get to boil, so gives me enough time to measure out the hops while I wait.
