A question for those in the know.

I’ve just moved to a rural setting with only tank water no town water available, is it wise to treat this water before I brew with it?

Ditto re the yeast,...using a quality yeast will improve the taste, and you will have more complete fermentation.

The brew shop I use is WA only http://www.westbrew.com.au/ and they have Brew Booster packs which you use instead of 1kg of glucose, they have a full range depending on what beer you are making, but typically usually with extra malt hops etc to make a normal brew just that much better.
Brew shops on your side of Aus will likely have similar offerings.
Another reasonble site with some recipies,, brewing hints etc is http://www.brewcraft.com.au/wawcs018151/tn-home.html

Cheers

good luck ooops ... I agree with BSA and your son about cleanliness. Just make sure everything is thoroughly rinsed with water after sterilizing or you might get a flat one. Beer hates soap.

Also, you might consider using a nice yeast like Saflager for your pils instead of the yeast that comes with the kit. Just for extra flavour.

For general info I've found Homebrew and Beer a pretty good site. And has a good forum too.

cheers

We keep on bumping into each other Ooops biggrin.gif

Follow instructions and remember with brewing cleanliness is next to Godliness.

What Pils are you going to brew?

The Dog Bolter(English strong ale)

1xMuntons Traditional Bitter.
1kg dark dry malt.
1xmuntons gold yeast

Final volume with water added is 13L and ends up around 8.3%

I also added
300g corn syrup
10g willamette hops

I doubled up on the first lot of ingreients to make 26litres and it wet ballistic foaming out of the airlock like a brew possessed and I lost a litre or so of jiggle juice sadsmiley02.gif

Cheers

PS A dark syrupy beer best described as yum biggrin.gif but let friends know of % level if they are driving wink.gif

Oh I meant to mention my son and I put down a couple of Little Creatures Pale Ale(Perth Brewery) style brews the other week(one of my sons Favourite beers) so will be interesting to see how the home brew compares to the original,...mind you we added 500gram of wheat malt instead of 150gram so might be a tad different wacko.gif dont know how that happened? to many samples before and during brewing perhaps?


Just to let you know how it went,...Mmmmmmmmmmmm
