Christo,
as a non drinker (well some one must be responsible to drive the drunks home), I am unable to help you in your desire for home brews. I do however, have a son and son-in-law who like to dabble in the art who would be more than obliging in offering their input. Most of their brews which they always brag about, are proprietry kits available through various specialty home brew shops around Adelaide and the Hills (tourist areas).
My son has a best mate who is family to a larger specialty winery who also dabbles in the art. I will make some enquiries on your behalf and get back to you.

Not a brewer but I am a drinker;) .....If you make it, I will be more than happy to be your taste tester:D

RT,

Second on that one. Anybody making a decent IPA? I'll be there with the cheese.

I brew beer and cider but have only used extract. Mainly because all my spare time is spent doing things like, hmmmm, build pizza ovens.

I said in an earlier forum that I just finished a really nice Cascade Mahogoney Porter. http://www.cascadehomebrew.com.au But one of my favourites was an Indian Pale Ale. Love that extra hoppy flavour.

I've found the extracts available these days are very good and usually confine my experimentation to brew booster sugars and liquid hops etc.

Cheers
Ian

I have not brewed in a while, but have done a bit of extract brewing...I also tried to open a brewpub back in the misty past...I would have hired a brewer for that. I did go to a brewing convention in Portland. That was fun!

I, too, did some homebrew beer. I'll try almost anything that invovles yeast. It has been a while since I last brewed but I keep thinking of getting back into it. Extract only. I'm blessed to have two homebrew shops within 5 miles of home so there is lots of options in extracts, hops and grain... if I ever decide to go that route. The nicest thing about having access to these shops is hte first-hand mentorship!

Gang,

I just found this slightly old post...

Now that my oven is on hold for the winter (got the foundation done!) I'm going to move my attention back to homebrewing. I'm lucky to have a beer supply shop close by. I don't do the full blown "mashing" etc. They sell kits with the syrup extract and the correct hops, yeast and grains you need. I equate it to baking a cake from scratch without gridning my own wheat.

(I haven't brewed in about 2-3 years while I was remodeling my basement.)

Don't have any recipes to share as they have about 30 kits you can choose from. I picked up a Porter and an October Fest.

By the time spring rolls around I'll have gotten the hang of beer making again. What could be better - homemade beer with a pizza cooked on a WFO!

Happy Thanksgiving.

A quick note to say Happy Thanksgiving.

Fire those ovens and have a wonderful day.

James and everybody south of the border,

Canadian Thanksgiving is in October, so the bird bones have been in and left the stock pot and the leftovers gone for weeks. Just wanted to pass on Thanksgiving greetings to all US members. Get out there and start the bird cooking. Have a full day.

Jim
