Yeah I've heard the same.

I used 3789 Trappist blend from Wyeast. There was a heap of spice when it was fresh. The longer its sat the more that has mellowed.

Just boiling up a 3%ish lawn mower beer tonight with what I had around. Should be a late night.
Hoping to get an Epic down this week too.

Nice work. Gotta love those easy drinkers.
Got another IPA on the cards. Simcoe all the way. With a mosaic addition at10. Running 5.5%

Then I'll be making a beer with a 50/50 mix of Nalson Sauvin and Sorachi Ace. This will be a really bold beer I think.

Just wanted to jump into this thread. Nice to connect with other NZ brewers. I moved to the far north about 4 years ago from Los Angeles, and recently got back into home brewing after about a ten year hiatus. I brew all grain, mostly malt balanced beers, with a strong preference on dark beers. Any other far north brewers? Would love to connect with others in the area who appreciate something other than Tui. Very remote where we are and not many people to share the love of craft beer with around here :-)

Also, if anyone knows of a list of NZ homebrew competitions I'd love to find it. I only know of the Soba one, and unfortunately I found out about it too late this year.

Cheers.

Welcome mate. There's the SOBA one of course. And the WEST COAST IPA challenge. Then there's normally a bunch of different ones throughout the country at different times. Here in Chch we run a comp quarterly this one is best of British. People's choice and judges choice. People choice gets to pick next style etc. No prizes just glory. All welcome to send bottles down.

If you look on realbeer there should be info on comps in each area. The WBC might be your best bet. They are in Auckland and have pretty regular comps. I think they have a Macs Sassy Red clone comp in Jan but they also have around 4 main comps a year that are style based with 3rd picking next style. Have a look on realbeer.co.nz and you should find what you need.

Just mashed in a rye pale ale called 'The Ryed Time'. Got a double brew day today so had to start early. I'll be doing a baby Citra saison later, although I had to sub in some NZ cascade as brewers coop were only had 60g of Citra left.

Shoulda said, I have a little bit of Citra.
