Cheers for that mate, been looking for that, now to work out what the shore/albany area is and make some adjustments.

I contacted the local water guy, turns out he is "Auckland" water guy too.

I take the report and ad a twinch of gypsum to get a perfect 5.4 in my small batch (6L).
I guess its triall and error to get it spot on.

Hahaha, I can't takle all the credit lunchie. Looking good though. how does the orange taste, once i get it all set upo, i'm going to split a batch of it, and go half pale ale and half saison.

GFruit beer is starting to look good,taste is still not there yet, lovely red/purple colours on both the blue berry one and the boysenberry one.

the rhubarb thing is interesting though...

Lol, credit is all yours, you told me about it
Not as orange and coriander as I thought it would. There is a slight spicy note right at the end, so I guess the coriander is there, just not as much as I thought. All good though, its still a good drop so far!

Yeah the rhubarb is a massive experiment. If it works I think I'll look at a rhubarb crumble recipe. Be a seasonal beer, maybe make it in the summer for the winter....Be nice on a cold day!!!

How Long are u leaving it on the rhubarb? I personally wouldn't leave it in there too long?

whaty you guys make of this? I';m doing a brown ale... all NZ Hops, Nelson and Motueka, quite fitting considering whrre i'll be spending my new years, lol.

4kg Pale Malt
0.5kg wheat
0.31kg biscuit
0.25kg pale chocolate (300L)
0.25kg pale crystal (50L)
0.2kg medium crystal (80L)
50g Carafa II (550L)
Choc and Carafa will be added at 10mins left in mash.
YEAST: US-05 x 2 packs most likely
1tsp Irish moss @ 10 mins
Forthe hops I'm going all later additions, no bittering, as withthe amount, I should come up around 45-50IBU
for the boil its ratio of 2:1 Motueka:Nelson Sauvin
20g Motueka @ 30
10g Nelson @ 30
20g Motueka @ 15
10g Nelson @ 15
30g Motueka @ 5
15g Nelson @ 5
then its a ratio of 3:1 Motueka:Sauvin
40g Motueka @ FO
13-14g Nelson @FO
DryHop1: 45g Motueka @ 10 days, 15g Nelson @10 days
Dryhop2: 45g Motueka @ 5 Days, 15g Nelson @ 5 Days
any feed back would be good, as I'll be gettingthis done after my trip to Oz.

5 days then I'll taste and see how it is. I'm not to worried if it goes bad, I'll just make it into a sour beer

I'm not a huge fan of NS, but you had me Motueka. By far my favourite hop!! I'd throw more in it if I was you
