How many brewers on here from NZ and what do you brew?

I'm from Wellington and brew cider. (may try beer later)
I'm Noobie as - getting my head around techniques and my abilities to start with.

Currently have an LHBS bought cider extract under my belt and in the bottles waiting to age appropriately and also have a basic hooch sitting in the store bought apple juice containers and fermenting away right now.

Palmy North here. Brewed extract, partial and now onto all grain (BIAB).

Brewed a fair few brews. Had my initial kit since St Paddy's day 2011 and brewed every weekend for a while. Moved into AG about 3 months ago and love it. Knowing what I know now, I think I would've hit AG first up.

I still bottle and it SUCKS. I have about 15 empty crates at any one time, so I have a shed load of bottles, but I really want a kegging system!!

Love brewing, much to the disgust of SWMBO, little bit to much money going out the door :-P

Happy to share anything I can with fellow kiwis, I'm no expert, but I loves me some beer!!!

I brought my 1st coopers DIY kit bout 2 years ago before it was time to bottle I found a cheep $50 old keggorator with tap off trademe. With every think else i think it was around 200 to have a working keg system. I have sence never bottled . I really need to get into all grain but will wait till I have finished my kezzer.

Nah easy as. Picked the name and went with it. Really easy to use. Simple template from there as well, only graphics that are mine are the photos.

Looking to brew a SMaSH on Sunday so might throw some more pics and article up.

You say you brew cider. Do you use apple juice or use a kit? I'm keen to brew something like Bulmers, but I can't get fresh juice...
