  • Posted in thread: Places and Beers to Drink in Canada? on 03-31-2013 at 08:19 PM
    Hi there,I am heading away on a business trip from New Zealand to Canada. I have a bit of time
    for pleasure, so was wanting to sample some of Canada's finest. Any recommendations for good
    pubs serving...

    Thanks all. These were brand new bottles from my LHBS made by Copper Tun. On closer
    investigation I believe this is due to them not snapping closed tight enough. They close down
    tight and then seem to...

    Thanks all. Yes, I'm in New Zealand. I'm looking at installing this into a 30l kettle. It's
    hard to get decent gas burners over here without spending a fortune, and as I "cook up" in my
    garage I am wo...

    I'm getting fed up with gas, so was thinking of going for an electric solution. I only do 5 gal
    batches, and I have my eye on a 30l pot. There is a 2200w element for sale on our local auction
    site. Wo...

    Okay, so I have a mix of PET and Swing-tops, both bought new from my LHBS.I am finding that
    about 50% of my swingtops end up going flat before I can drink them. Its getting to the point
    where I am goi...

    Okay, so I have finally made what I think is a very drinkable Witbier, after a couple of false
    starts. But now I am faced with a new problem, in that it appears my beer is going flat when
    chilling it....

    Hi there,I am about to buy a Coleman 5gal beverage cooler to use as a mash tun. As I am all the
    way down in New Zealand we are somewhat limited to what we have access to.I think I would
    prefer to go w...

    boil a lb of DME into a quart or two of water, cool and add to your fermentor... voila more
    fermentablesSo would the best bet be to use Wheat DME, given its a wheat beer, or can I just
    get away with a...

    So,...My first go at BIAB and I think I have a problem. I am doing a Belgian Wit, and my SG was
    not what it should be (1.034). Now it appears that my fermentation has ground to a halt at
    1.014, giving...

    Thanks for all the responses. I think I have found the problem. The last batch I bottled I had
    my wife putting on the tops (plastic PET bottles with screw lids). I went and checked the
    bottles and not...
