    Already in the works, complete with toasted oak and everything. Ran my first batch through the still yesterday to see how to tweak it. Gonna be pricey though, need lots of malt to make up that gravity...

    Still got plenty of stock, guys. It seems people forget that homebrewing is rewarding, fun, tasty and cheap now that they can buy Castle Lite again!

    Still waiting for my first brew to "mature"


    I would not call it exactly cheap, rewarding - yes, but commercial beer is cheaper than R30 a liter


    but surely not as tasty

    Mine still building up gas in the bottels. Will party this Friday.

    Toxxyc, now that Alc is going to be "legal" again, are you considering proceeding to finish brewing some of the stock you have and bottle it under your own label? This might help sales for those that still want your beer but do not want to go through the full process again?

    Bottled mine of Friday after 10 days. 42 Bottles of 440ml. Was supposed to be hunting this past weekend but thanks to changes in rules I had to cancel. Looking at a new date in September so this should be ready for consumption by then.

    Smells great and also liked the taste. I had some carbonation drops left so just used them. Picture below is slightly misty, but this was the last out of the container and I think I included some trub when siphoning the taster.

    But you can't compare commercial beer to this. Water in general is cheap.

    Compare what you pay for craft in the liquor store or pub, that is closer to 60 - 80 bucks and up per liter.

    Methinks Toxxyc will see a severe drop-off in sales if I can judge from the complete stagnation on the distilling and brewing WA groups since last night.
