Unfortunately we can't take advantage of Aldi specials in QLD due to licensing laws. :(
I just came on to whine about that.
Pretty sure Bonehead specifically excluded you from the discussion anyway. :thumbsdown

Whoa I didn't know about this one either. I can provide my Homebrew updates in here.

I have a vision of a beer I want to have a go at whipping up. Its going to be my take on an Old Fashion cocktail. So Im thinking an Ale, with a hint of Bourbon and Orange flavours in the background.

First I need to do my Chocolate Stout from scratch, then I'll start on the Old Fashion, then I'll have a crack at a Raiders Beer. Apparently Wheatgrass is good for making green beer

One of my old school friends who is now some big wig eastern suburb of Sydney dwelling toff, came to visit last year and I served him a glass of VB and told him it was a European beer - I actually just made up some Bull name. Of course believing it was a boutique beer he loved it... What a pretentious ponce

Does it count if he has his people purchase on his behalf?

Son, we live in a world that has forums, and those forums have to be guarded by Mods. Who's gonna do it? You? You, Nickman? I have a greater responsibility than you can possibly fathom. You weep for Lucy, and you curse GE. You have that luxury. You have the luxury of not knowing what I know -- that GE’s moderation, while tragic, probably saved lives; and my existence, while grotesque and incomprehensible to you, keeps threads on track and under the appropriately sized, highlighted green headings.
You want moderation because deep down in places you don't talk about at parties, you want me on that forum -- you need me on that forum. We use words like "stay on topic," "use the appropriate forum," "please delete." We use these words as the backbone of a life spent defending something. You use them as a punch line. I have neither the time nor the inclination to explain myself to a man who rises and sleeps under the blanket of the very moderation that I provide and then questions the manner in which I provide it. I would rather that you just said "thank you" and went on your way. Otherwise, I suggest you get a green handle and edit a post. Either way, I don't give a DAMN what you think about moderation.

Pretty hard to find decent drops under $15 these days. Cost of production and distribution prohibits most of the smaller wineries providing anything decent in that range. The larger commercial operations can do it with some sort of consistency. Ones like Barwang and Wirra Wirra Church Block do the job. Unremarkable but highly drinkable.

Clearances like the one Boney pointed out and clean skins can get the best results. Can be a bit of pot luck though. Can't duck into Dan's at any to to grab one for dinner.
