Just checked by Belgo, and its at 1,018 so its done its job. and I kept my sample in the fridge for 3 hours, and wow this is going to be one damn awesome brew. I'll taste again tomorrow after a few morehours in the fridge (I do this sometimes...) shame we cant buy this beer in the country.

Hi Guys, a couple of you know me or my brews. I'm a home brewer in Auckland and I've been brewing for just over a year (anniversary was on 28th of April). To celebrate I brewed my 30th and 31st beers!
I started with the usual Coppertun kit with the Munich Lager, then quickly started modifying kits, whilst making small batch all grain brews (2-3 Litres). After 6 months I upgraded to full batch BIAB.
I've done some great beers (Yakima Scarlet Clone, Hopped Lately?, Chipotlale, Russian Imperial Oatmeal Treacle Stout and Waimea Pure)
Some unusual beers (Chipotlale, Oatmeal Pale Ale, Beef in Bourbon Beer, 100% Peated)
And, of course, some terrible disasters!! (Beef in Bourbon Beer, Milk Chocolate Porter (the lactose turned into lactic acid), 2 attempts at Mexican Cerveza)

I'm also a distiller and I've made a couple of meads.

I really enjoy brewing high gravity brews, most of my recent brews have been over 10% but my next brew in the planning is targeting 20+% all grain (no sugar).

Anyway, I look forward to sharing knowledge and brews with you guys.

I'm just getting all the stuff together for it and I have to wait for my fermenters to be empty. Probably wait until after my birthday at the end of may as i hope my wife is getting me a grain mill. And with 14kgs of grain getting closer to 80% rather than 60% would be good

Bottling my Belgian IPA on Sunday, looks and tastes good, and of course the smell.

Lunchie you ready to swap yet?

Yeah I've seen those, a bit more pricey than normal brewing, it'd be interesting to see how lose the beer is to the original..... definitely somethign I might invest in, when I get back into it. just to see the differences, do you kow what yeast is supplied??

No idea on the yeast. I was planning a Tall Poppy clone but I think this will do me for IPAs for a while.


Doing the second half of my Epic Pale ale kit tonight.
Skipping the 77C mash out really helps with the bag handling.
