Thought I’d start to check out some stout.


#1103

That looks interesting.


#1104

Yeah it’s pretty intense coffee flavor. I wonder if I will sleep tonight! It’s 10% abv. A kiwi brew.


#1105

I like an espresso martini. Looks like a beer version. Yum.


#1106

That looks magnif, mate. Went down well?


#1107

Still drinking it. Yes going down very well. If I can sleep tonight I will definitely revisit. I love coffee and used to drink a lot of it when I had an office near Lygon st. But these days I am ultra sensitive to caffeine and usually can’t sleep if I have some. It’s a huge bummer!


#1108

Same. I drink coffee in the morning/to early arvo, but nothing after 4-5ish, otherwise I can’t get any shuteye. Enjoy a good stout, especially in the cooler months. Kanpai!


#1109

The regular iStout is excellent if you didn’t want the coffee and lactose.


#1110

Thanks mate I’ll scope it out


#1111

Or to circumvent the caffeine issue, Robin could just drink morning beers. :wink:


#1112

A maple syrup barrel-aged imperial stout does wonders at Sunday brunch. Yum!


#1113

Yeah that’s my current plan :yum:


#1114

Come at me CBS!

no that you would!


#1116

I’m considering going to the Deeds Brewing launch takeover on Friday. They’ve got their site in Glen Iris and having a launch party at carwyn to celebrate. $5 tins of Juice Train plus a stack of taps!
Korban D will going into Melbourne outlets this week, keep an eye out your go to shops, I’m sure Purvis will get it in!

Launch is at Catfish in Thursday night so assume it’ll be on sale in stores from Friday.


#1117

Just joined.
Thanks for the heads up.


#1118

Chop chop should be getting a cut from them.


#1119

Not gonna lie, pretty ■■■■■■ they’re not doing referral links for this deal right now…:laughing:


#1120

Where are you getting those from and what are you brewing?

I’m trying to circulate some brews among those mates who might actually know what they’re drinking. Can be a bit of an echo chamber if you’re the only person drinking it but no point wasting it on people that haven’t got a clue what they’re drinking either.


#1121

I’m getting mine from pub brew shop in Brisbane (Capalaba) they are an Annex of Bacchus brewery. Miles from where I live, but I have a rapport with them, the main guy there knows his ■■■■. They are really helpful


#1122

This is the go. Pretty sure this is the Bible of brewing in general. You can get beer recipe / profile based on your kit. Makes it pretty hard to stuff it up
