Thanks, nice to meet you. Apologies - late reply = time zone difference lol.

Tbh, I like to keep it as simple as I 'can' (lol). Seriously though, I've always been a 'neccessity' homebrewer, but I love the fact that I can make something myself that tastes twice as good as bottlshop swill. The last place I lived I brewed a nice Pure Blonde clone, Black Rock was the brand I think, plus Canadian Blonde which was great seeing the weather gets quite hot here. I was a shiftworker at the time so kept it simple to keep the pipeline happening. There were Jabotucaba trees growing there so I'd harvest the fruit & make my own wine too (14%ABV), which tasted like alcoholic lychee juice. I got better at the science behind it by watching plenty of YouTube, I'm not really into a heavy-tasting beer but now my life is a lot more settled, I would probably start adding steeping grains if I felt like bolstering the flavours a bit. I've also brewed a Stone & Wood Pacifical Ale clone for a while (Byron Bay Brewery), galaxy hoppy goodness lol. Really nice crafty-style beer.

I moved to Central Queensland about 18 months ago & it gets extremely bloody hot here, 40 degrees Celsius can be a normal day, though lately with storm season the temps are all over the place. We found out recently that in most states, only 50% of our glass is being recycled which pissed everyone off a bit, but it prompted me to kick everything up a notch & try to get 100% homebrew happening in the house again, to reduce waste. I'm definitely sticking with the lawnmower beers though, due to the heat. I'm making a Great Northern Supercrisp clone atm, Mangrove Jacks Classic Blonde Dry. The house is tiled & airconditioned, so it's cool enough for the yeasties. I think I watched Craig make up one of their Cider Kits a while back, I wouldn't mind giving that a go too.

My partner in crime works for the rail network, employees have to blow in the bag before each shift (ie breath testing - if you blow numbers, you get fired). So only am I trying to brew a skinny-arsed-beer, it has to be 3.5% ABV (only the wicked will be punished, right? Lol). As females both of us can only have 1 standard (30g/375ml) per hour to stay under the legal driving limit of .05, so as daily beer-lovers, it's easier to count your drinks (just leave the tastier rocket fuel for the days off). I found adding 250g light dry malt (+ enzyme), using 500ml swing tops with single primer drops, the final result was right on the money. Pouring into the right size glasses also helps to keep count.

Welcome to the crew, Larney! Cheers to you from winter Norway :)

Let us know If you ever fancy sharing a beer with some of the crew members over a Skype call. Lots of aussies and a bunch of northern hemisphere brewers have shared some great times this way, and we’d love it if you joined some time. Only at your leisure though. Be warned, some of us tend to end up “ice skating”.

Have fun browsing the forum, and ask about anything you like.

G'day Brew! Thanks for the warm welcome! Norway hey? So cool how small the world has become Tbh I've never had a go at Skype, though I'm currently teaching my parents how to 'technology' so I could be a bit of an imposter lol I'll have to check out the time zone difference & try to at least sit in?

Please feel free to go ahead and download skype and create an account. Just so you know, there is absolutely no need to spend one cent on anything with skype. Just ignore the payment stuff they provide (it's for using skype to call phones directly without them using skype). Skype itself is free to use.

I was just on skype with a couple of the crew members, TASsparks from Tasmania, and vic, from Sydney, and CorronZenith from Adelaide. Would be very nice to chat with you some time as well. Let us know when you're all set, and we'll hook you up.
