Anzac day is Saturday 25th April and this year as it falls on the Saturday, Monday becomes a public holiday. As ANZAC Day Trading is prohibited until 1pm it doesn't make business sense to open for only two hours on ANZAC Saturday. So Brewers Coop will be closed for two days over ANZAC Weekend (Saturday 25th and Monday 27th April).

HOWEVER, we don't want you to miss out on your weekend brewing, so we will have two late trading nights the week before ANZAC WEEKEND. Brewers Coop will be open until 6.30pm on Thursday 23rd and on Friday 24th April.

If you want your order couriered out please place your orders early in the week to ensure they get delivered on time for the long weekend.

Brew in a Bag System

Brewers Coop now stocks the Brew in a Bag System. This process simplifies the world of All Grain Brewing allowing you to brew a better beer. In comparison to other full grain mash methods, brew in a bag offers the brewer a number of benefits over the traditional process. These benefits include:

  • One vessel trebles up as a hot liquor tank, mash tun and kettle (boiler).
  • BIAB offers a far lower equipment cost
  • Less equipment means less space needed and quicker clean-up
  • Less time investment making your fermentable wort
  • Quick and simple process
  • Produces as good a result as full mash brewing

System cost is as follows

  • Stainless pot 34L: $150
  • Grain bag: $24.00
  • Wortchiller: $212.00
  • Thermometer: $15.80
  • Bought as a complete kit: $360.00

Barrel Fermenter complete with airlock bung , tap and stick on thermometer, hydrometer and testing cylinder $70.00 if bought as part of total package.
