    Hi all, some of you may remember my first attempt at brewing; an AG Epic Pale Ale Clone that
    didn't go that well. After leaving it in the bottle for five months it was as flat as a lizard,
    sweet to ta...

    I bottled my second attempt at an Epic clone the other day ... even tasted about right! I'm now
    thinking that I need to do another brew, but what to do? What is a Red IIPA, and what type of
    beer is th...

    Gidday Lunchie, I saw you on RealBeer a while ago too... can't remember your login though. The
    second batch is well into its boil, about to do the 2nd hop addition. Apart from the bloody

    Indeed I am Richard from RealBeer. I followed the method written by John Palmer. I made a MLT

    sweet, yet th...

    Hi all, my first attempt at brewing (AG, since you ask) Epic clone is not all it could be. I
    made many mistakes, and the final ignominy being the bottle priming failed to fire, leaving me
    with a flat,...

    Grab one of these: or you need is a little plastic box and a 2m extension cord to wire it

    heating source y...

    Thanks for that, Icecaster. I have just been on TradeMe and bought one. My first brew was meant
    to be last weekend, but I was forced to go fishing on a mate's flash boat. What's a man to do?
    :D

    Hi Lunchie, not sure what just happened to my question, but it went somewhere! Anyway, I'm
    doing my first ever batch on Sunday (Epic Pale Ale ... your version next!) but am having
    sleepless nights won...

    Thanks for your response and the info, Lunchie. I'm with you on the aroma and flavor, so would
    appreciate your recipe for the ManawaBrew Pale Ale.
