First Single Hop Experiment

Been fairly keen on brewing single hopped beers these last few years, especially due to the fact that I've got at least half a dozen varieties growing in the yard and there is always a new variety surfacing every so often so we got the club involved in this experiment. Well it's not really an experiment as such but a good opportunity to gather a good number of beers together that have the same malts and yeast but differ in the hops used which were chosen by the participating brewers. If you were to google this idea, you'd see that were not the first to do such a project and the recipe is taken from another homebrew club but when your confronted by 20 different kegs of beer at our end of year breakup then I'm sure your going to be impressed as much as I was. There's a link below to a leaflet which contains info about the different hops as well as space to write your impressions and we will be re-sampling the beers in a few months to see what has changed due to Barry filling half a dozen bottles of each on the day.
Now I can't wait till we do the IPA experiment...

Wychwood Brewery Hobgoblin

Great price for the Bottle & Glass Gift Set at Frankston's Dan Murphy's at the moment - $6.45. Look in the fridge section and a single bottle on it's own is $7.60. Certainly don't need any more pint size glasses, now I have six more....

Little Creatures Geelong

Quite keen to learn that the brewery is set to open next Tuesday. Those long drives down the Princess Hwy to Warrnambool will now come with a scheduled stop over.

Jonathan Finney's Vienna Lager

The Taphouse will have the launch of a Vienna Lager brewed by the Champion brewer of the Melbourne beer fest of this year on Thursday the 28th of  November. We're referring to Jonathan Finney and his recipe that has been scaled up by the Mornington Brewery and since they don't have any left as it was extremely popular going by what Andrew recently told me, this might be the last opportunity to taste what is surely a very important beer because it isn't every day that a member of the Bayside Brewers has their beer brewed to such a large volume. The launch has been organised by the Melbourne Brewers so get yourself along and support one of our own.
