A year or so ago, I ran into a fellow at a party who was liberally pouring his homebrew from 2-litre plastic pop bottles. He identified it as an "Australian-style amber ale", made from extract & grain, and it was DAMN GOOD! Not heavy or sweet, but with ample body; hoppy but not too much, and very refreshing on a hot day. Now that the weather's turning hot and all I have in the cellar is heavy brown ale, I remember that crisp brew fondly. My questions: 1) Is there really such a thing as an "Australian style" of ale, and how does it differ from other styles? 2) Does anyone have any good "hot weather" ale recipes they're willing to share? Much obliged. - Martin = Martin A.

I tried to culture some yeast from some Sierra Nevada Pale Ale bottles, but, nothing happened. I made a starter from some sterile wort I removed and cooled half way through the boil. 3 bottles of Sierrra were emptied and the dregs swirled and added to the cool wort. 45 Min later, Nothin, not even a bubble. Not hampered by the apparent lack of activity I went ahead and pitched the "starter" anyway (3 Sierra Nevada Pale Ales in lew of dinner will unhamper you of much:-). Well the questions are, 1) Will this eventually start? If not should I just pitch a packet of dry? 2) How can I culture some Sierra Nevada yeast (or any other yeast for that matter) ? Any other suggestions? I tried dry hopping some pellets of cascade hops this time (1/2 oz.). Will they circulate enough to emit aromatics? Do they need to? Thanx for your help We must prevent those commies from compromising the integrity of our precious bodily fluids. -Gen. Jack D.
