    My Brewing:

    Typical exposure to home brew in the 70's as a child, then a boy and then a drinker.

    Never really liked beer as a young man.

    Made lots of bad home brew in the latter 2000's. Initially my Mrs started brewing to save money and all I had to do was clean the bottles...and I couldn't even do that so she stopped.
    I wanted to brew all-grain but couldn't get my head around it so stopped brewing and bought a carton of Little Creatures Pale Ale every week for 18mths or so.

    One day whilst reading John Palmer's "How to brew" I asked my Mrs (same one) if she could build me a mash-tun because I couldn't understand how to do it. She read the part in the book about it and made me a mash-tun for Fathers Day.

    Shit beer ensued. Good woman though ay?

    Big mistake for a long time was over-using hops.

    Loved the breweries in the Swan Valley at the time we were in Guildford I must say. Very inspirational - Feral was my favorite this was around the time (of living in Guildford, Western Australia)

    Brewing on 4v HERMS now, got a third in the specialty category at beerfest 2016, First comp for me in Melbourne VIC, Australia.

    Loving making beer, enjoying the journey good and bad

    My Beers:

    don't trust my public beers, they're tests and brews that were rarely brewed as stated. happy to answer questions though
