Beer: "proof that God loves us"

Recommended Posts

A friend and I bottled 155 bottles of the best beer Ive tasted on Tuesday. It's called Nelson Savin and Billabong Brewery does it as part of their huge range of make it yourself beers. For those who havnt done the micro-brewery thing you book an hour at a kettle (mashtun) and choose a beer to make. Most MBs have popular beer equivalents if you dont feel adventurous. They guide you through the brewing and then it is chilled filtered and kegged. The keg sits in a temp controlled environment for 2 weeks or until you can go to bottle it. You book a day and hour and either take your own bottles or buy theirs and stand at a sink and the cold filtered and carbonated beer is piped straight to the bottling station. An hour and a half later you are on your way. Yeee Ha! Nelson Savin is a very strong hop grown in NZ and it has a strong flavour of apricots/peaches or passionfruit depending on who you talk to. It is a triple hopped beer and just beaut 4.5%

Yep I do brewing at home, have just bottled a Centenarillo Ale using Centennial and Amarillo hops, and a Stone and Wood Pacific Ale clone using bucket loads of Galaxy hops. Great fun. I'm moving house next week into a house that has a cellar so I will be able to brew all summer round!! Woohoo!!!

Bottled 72 beers at U Brew It in Melbourne last week with a couple of mates (72 bottles each not between us) - it was a spreets deal thing, the first and only time i've done one. Quite enjoyed it and the all you can drink beer while you are brewing and bottling.

The beer came out pretty good too - was one of their standard recipes. They do a few gluten free varieties for those that need them.

U brew it are a franchise with places quite widely spread. No connection.

Dang, that's brilliant & sounds foolproof. I think that the Aussie beer industry must be one of the best in the world. Untold boutique & micro breweries making superb drops & keeping the wine mob on their toes.
