Hey all,

I was wondering if there are any homebrewers in Melbourne that'd be willing to let me borrow their capper and bottling wand for a few days once my first batch is ready to bottle? I'm only in the city for a few months and hadn't planned to brew anything but a 30L fermenter found it's way to me so I'm going to try and squeeze in a batch or two without accumulating too much gear.

I'm brewing a wheat beer, nothing especially exciting, but I'd be happy to return the gear with a 6-pack of the spoils. If you're keen to help out then drop me a line. I'm living in Brunswick, no car but I'm willing to brave a long journey on the tram. I'm pitching on Tuesday so I'd like to pick up the gear around the 23rd if possible.

Thanks!

I realize this an old thread but looks like a good place to start. Looking to buy bulk grain and hops where should I go? Cheers!

Yeah I saw those 2 online. Wasn't sure if keg king sold grain as I couldn't find it on their website. I will check them out. Cheers!
