I like Vegemite and Marmite, but I would never consider putting it in my beer.

Apparently they think PB&J's are gross but they'll eat that shyt.

+1 on the practical joke use of vegemite. Lived there for two years and learned two valuable lessons very quickly: 1 - DO NOT eat vegemite and 2 - do not get into a beer drinking contest with an Aussie, they drink it like water there.

Just like the US, we have loads of beer coloured water that tastes pretty awful. The homebrew / craftbrew movement is no where near as far along the road as the US, but it is picking up.

If you go to a pub and order a pint / middie / schooner whatever of any of the large commercial beers, you will be sorely disappointed. There are some micro's that put out some very good beers, you just have to look for them.

I like the idea of vegemite in a a porter or stout. That might actually give it a nice twang.

If you are planning to head west to Perth I can give you a few suggestions on where to go for a decent brew.

Hi guys I am an Aussy and funnerley enough found this forum after googleing vegemite in homebrew.
Got a laugh out of what was being said and yes it is an aquired taste but my god one aquired you will never look back .
The question is can you use Veg as yeast and who ever said you cant well your correct its dead yeast .
However you can use it as a nuitrant , put it this way the old bloke who owns the home store used to work fro Tooheys he told me to throw in a tea spoon the yeast are canables and fatten up on the vegemite than are ready to feast on the batch . I have done it several times and cant really say that it has had an affect that can be noticed.
