Cmon boney..

Fui needs solid home brewing advice.

Hey Fui, grab a pen mate and jot this down.

Whatever it says about ingredients(how much)...triple it and enjoy.

And boner and myself will sample it..make sure it's ok..quality control ya know ?

Nah, that’s ok. I had it coming. Been a bit too comfortable around this place lately. Needed an unexpected name call to put me back into my place.

But quality ingredients, makes a huge difference
Try and regulate the temperature of the brew to remain as steady as possible
If you want to continue to do it long term get a kegging system ( everyone gets sick of bottling)
If you are bottling use the brewers sugar drops way easier/quicker then measuring.
Talk to the bloke in your loca home brew shop they are always keen to chat and will often poor you a couple of beers whilst you chat.

ducked down to woolies and back, people a few doors up are sitting on their roof on beanbags drinking watching the sunset.

So..

My phone was going crazy with plenty of Raiders hate after fulltime on Sunday.

One(mate!!) was laying it on real thick. He follows the Knights(says it all really). He doesn't watch a lot of footy and to be honest is clueless. So, he's bagging Canberra..Leiluas a dill, premiership contenders, he even called us grubs..Some of his comments were ludicrous like..I would rather miss the finals than have to play the 3 grubbiest sides in the comp.

PJs response was swift...

"Mate, I don't know who 12th play in week 1 of the finals but I'm positive they'll lift"

So much hurt !!!

Yeah... we have some form of coffee machine, don’t know the brand.

Oh and I’ve got my first batch of Cider going. I did the math today, and I should get around 70x 330ml bottles. Didn’t realise it was that much!

Ive got that exact model at work. Makes a decent cap, great espresso. Cant for the life of me figure out what setting to use to make a long black though, I end up running half a dozen espresso cycles though one capsule...

Love it. Don’t use it all the time, but when I have guests over and you just need to smash out coffees, or if I’m in the mood for something nicer than Nescafé, it’s good.

Easy to maintain as well

Just focus on your character. Get really method. What is your character’s motivations for wire making? What’s his backstory?
