Magnetised Fermentation Process To Revolutionise Brewing

4 April 2011

Last week Perth’s Nail Brewing Australia (www.nailbrewing.com.au) was granted patent for arevolutionary magnetised fermentation.

Not only does magnetised fermentation dramatically reduce beer fermentation and conditioning, it stabilises the beer and mimimises the chance of bacteria infection and oxidation, which results in increased shelf life and improved product. more info

  • April 1 Fun

    Today is All Fools’ Day, more commonly known as April Fools’ Day. It is a day for jokes and pranks, though in this part of the world we only fool until noon. In most countries, the japes last all day. April Fools’is a well-established and widely celebrated day.

    The New Zealand beer community has got into the spirit with a couple of offerings this year. more info

    Owners can’t get in but beer can get out

    There were chaotic scenes in Christchurch yesterday after a small group of citybusiness owners broke through the Civil Defence cordon during the course of a protest. The 100 or so protesters were angry they were not allowed to retrieve vital business equipment, secure their premises or arrange independent engineering assessments for buildings inside the cordon. They also cited a lack of communication from the authorities. The cordon was established after the 22 February quake and is designed to keep people out of the heavily damaged CBD for safety reasons. It is guarded by the Police and the Army, with police officers chasing those who breached the cordon.more info

    The generous spirit of the beer community

    The New Zealand beer community continues to show its generosity with two new fund-raising events on 24 March in Wellington. Around the country, money continues to be raised for Christchurch in the wake of the big earthquake, including over $3,000 fromGalbraith’s in Auckland.There is some good news from Christchurch with the re-opening of breweries such as Three Boys and pubs such as Pomeroy’s. However, a number still remain closed including the Dux de Lux and the Twisted Hop.more info

    Show your interest in craft beer and support for our small brewers by adding a post about:
    Tourism: Share your recent weekend away or favouriteroad trip visiting small breweriesto show how many people are visiting small breweries
    Regional Development: Are there small breweries in your local area? Have they increased employment in your area? Are these small breweries increasing tourist numbers into your area? These are all positive impacts to Government revenue and the economy
    Government Revenue: Are you drinking more craft beer than commercial beer? If so that will increase GST revenue and company/income tax revenue for the Government, thereby having a positive impact.
