Had a few of Brad's beers recently, drinking the Pellicosis red at the moment. Funky and sour.  Reminds me a lot of the barrel IIPA from a few years ago and the IPA from last year. Both were quite funky and sour. Really enjoying this beer.

The gose I found to be too salty for my taste.  The strawberry version is much better balanced, the tartness seems to really work with the salt.  Not sure if they have different amounts of salt.

Same salt additions - straight gose had more time in primary and more oxygen got in (increasing acidity big time!). Was the same base beer for both.

Cheers mate!!!!

The Pellicosis Red was what we bottled last year?  That was delicious.
I keep checking the Stirling Cellars of Left Barrel beers, usually there's none.  Asked them a couple of times, said they like to keep different things.
They should have them front and center on display instead of hawking some other rubbish.  The price to quality can't be beat.

How far away is the Tap Room?

A cash swap rather than a case swap.
I have nothing interesting to add here.

Sweet / milk stout is one of my favourite styles. I've only tried to brew one once and it was a bit ordinary, possibly because it was also my first ever AG.

Abbotsford Invalid Stout is a nice (and cheap) sweet stout brewed by CUB and available widely in Victoria. Wish you could get it here.

I still remember the To ├śl whiskey barrel aged sweet stout (13.1% ABV) that was on tap at the Wheaty during a club AGM a couple of years ago. Quite a sipper that one.

Still coming to terms with the one I just brewed, quite sweet on the front palate and finishing very dry on the back palate. This seems to suggest that the beer has a level of astringency almost certainly from the roast barley and choc malt. I don't think this can be avoided. Still very nice beer and may smooth out over the next week or so.

My stouts historically tend to start at 9% abv or above... perfect for Strippers if he brings a plastic pint glass.

Feral Watermelon Warhead

On tap at the West Thebby along with a few other Ferals.
While it's not really the type of day for it, I love this beer. It was such a left field beer for me, and was my gateway into Sours/ Berliner Weisse.

Haven't seen it on tap anywhere for a while, especially since the Wheaty focused more on its own line.
