The Pub / Greatest NZ beer drinking song
« on: December 05, 2011, 07:07:32 AM »
This song from the 80's is one of the reason my brewery is named "Another1",

The other reason is  because the wife suggested it to me last christmas on the long drive home from our holiday.

I spent many nights, and early morning drinking at the bar with this song playing in the background, and was even lucky enough to watch them live, I might even be in the crowd of this video.

Hope you enjoy it

Yeast and Fermentation / Three yeast examples
« on: December 05, 2011, 02:46:15 AM »
As part of my recipe development for a KiwiFruit Beer named "Patches MacKiwi" I trialled 3 different yeast strains on the same wort, the following video is the fermenting process that shows the differences, and the beer is soon going to be bottled, and the all important taste test results will follow soon.

this item was moved from "general home brewing discussion"

sanitized bag, otherwise the hops will be in you beer and you will have to filter them out. I use a small nylon bag that I boil first then fill with pellets.

cool feedback guys keep it up.

Its interesting that a lot of peoples first impression is a coffee stain, maybe the addition of the word "beer" somewhere might help.

Yes it was planned to have a planet symbolism, showing new zealand down the bottom, in it little corner of the world.

"Another1" is also a hinted that when you go to the bar because you have run out of beer, you can order "another one" to try and evoke the thought that you can have another one.

If you want a serious answer, you should do some market exposure with quantitative evaluation. Please send me 2 XL's and I will send you a complete report on market response in two years.

Tempted just to read the report in two years time, LOL

I think if you're going to be selling them, don't do it here.  If you just want opinions, no problem!

No I am not intending on selling them here, just after some market feedback

yerp your close, its a beer stain, that had the faint outline on NZ in it, so I tweaked it in Photoshop to sharpen it up.

I sent a beer to New Mexico, US customs opened it up and had a look at it and that was about it. I labelled it on the customs declaration as a "Malt Soda" no lying there :) and said it was a gift. I know though that Florida is harder due to state taxes. NZ is pretty easy to get stuff in the country, there main worry is agriculture and environmental risks, along with the standard drug and weapon restrictions of course.

Would be keen to do a beer swap, I think I would have no issues sending from this side.

No I decided to focus on the beer brewing, taking that commercial is much easier than spirits. Once you have 10ltrs of bourbon sitting in a large carboy you have enough for a while, anyway  :)

I am looking at expanding the homebrew reviews that we do in NZ to the international arena, here is the latest review on a homebrewed Raspberry Flanders Brown Ale

I have done one international review so far and I am looking for more homebrewers that want to do international beer swaps. If you are interested, subscribe to and leave a comment.

Wonder what the penalty is in hop trafficking ;) I think it's only NZ customs that searchs for food before illegal drugs, entering the country. Out of interest what price do you pay for NZ hops in France.

Hi my name is Paul I am a home brewer from New Zealand. I have been brewing for a year now, and have the goal of setting up and running my own nano / micro brewery.

I run a web site that tracks this progress and also do homebrew video reviews. The last video review I posted was for my british ale called "Peculiar One" that I sent to a friend in New Mexico to taste and video for me.

I am looking for more American homebrewers that would like to swap beers and have them reviewed on my YouTube channel if you are interested send me an email my contact details can be found at
