    A great idea! I will be supporting you once I have a bit of spare cash!

    I'm in Modjadjiskloof, Limpopo,and the quote comes out as only R175 for shipping. Is that right?

    Good luck with your venture, and a very nice website (viewed on my mobile).

    I certainly hope Danie has purged the cube with CO2?

    Although I am in the UK with plenty of choice of alcohol available, I have passed on the link to my friends in South Africa. Hope they enjoy it!

    I'm literally about to place my order. I just had a question regarding the bottling. Do you still need to prime the beer when bottling?
    Regardless I've placed my order.... Mond water al.😂

    It should be around R175 ket kit Riaan. As dit meer is sal ek dit gewoonlik opvreet as deel van ops cost.

    No purging. The heat drives off oxygen and the boiling heat remains that hot (pastuerisation temps) for a good 20~30 minutes. If it works well in Australia with their heat, it does just fine in SA, I'd say. My cans are even UV resistant, and not almost completely clear like the ones sold Down Under.

    Yep, you have to prime it. Instructions will come along in due time if you place an order!

    On a related note guys, I sold out this morning. I'm brewing another 3kL on Thursday so don't despair! More is coming!

    Between 15C and 20C. The yeast is S-04. Extreme range is 12C to 25C but 15C to 20C is the "optimal range". Pretty neutral as well.

    I see the one is out of stock and the other is on backorder.

    Realistically what is the lead time for the pale ale for Gauteng delivery and how is your supply chain coping?

    Well done though, I have zip experience with brewing (except Pineapple beer) so if you can simply for us then great!

    OK, I quoted S-05 which is what most people use.
