I should be able to do a brew on the Friday and have it fermented out by the Monday using the WLP4045 yeast, that yeast is just insane! Hope you all have a great long weekend and manage to get a brew in!
We have just restocked our White Labs yeasts so come and get ’em while they are fresh!
A heads up to all those who put their name down to get some WLP4045 – SIGMUND’S VOSS KVEIK yeast, our shipment has arrived so pop in to collect your order. We also have a few spare for anyone else.
We will be closed from 2.00pm on Sunday 23rd December 2018 until 8.30am Thursday 3rd January 2019. Normal trading hours will resume from then. We wish you a very merry Christmas and a happy and safe New Year. Thank you for your custom over the last twelve months. It is highly valued.
We have received a small delivery of Coopers Schooner Ale Malt and Coopers Premium Pale Malt to try out, grown and malted in S.A, it’s great to see more Australian malts becoming available!
Ian and I will be performing (!) an all grain brewing demonstration on Sunday 25th November 2018 in front of the shop, starting at 8.30am. It should conclude at 12.00 depending on the mood of the brewing gods. After that we will do some intensive research and development, as well as in depth quality control…….. Ian will be brewing with his Guten and I’ll be using my Braumeister 20 plus. All brewers, new and experienced, are welcome to attend at no charge.If you wish to attend, could you please drop us a line to indicate your interest.
The warmer weather is upon us again and our summer trading Sundays are starting from the 14th of October. Colin will be manning the shop (mostly, I’ll cover when he can’t make it in) so come in and grab your brewing ingredients or get an emergency cO2 refill between 10am and 2pm Sundays from now till next winter.
Ian and I will be conducting an all grain brewing demonstration on Sunday 16th September at 8.00 am. Yes, I know that’s an early start, but it’s a lengthy process. We should be finished by noon at which point we may indulge in a cold beverage or two. Ian will be using his RoboBrew (not sure what he will brew, but it’s guaranteed to be magnificent.) I’ll be using my 20 litre Braumeister to brew a Belgian Orange Saison. Everybody interested in starting all grain brewing is welcome to attend, and there will be no charge. You may, however, be coerced into assisting with the cleanup. If you’d like to attend, at any time during the “event”, could you please let me know.
