The Grain Mill
The grain mill is used to crack the malted grain to allow water to enter the seed during the mash.
The wort is boiled in the kettle for 1.5 hrs.  Boiling sterilizes the wort and drives off some unwanted flavours.  Hops are added into the kettle throughout the boil to add bitterness,  flavours and aromas.
Conditioning allows the beer to mature and the malt,  hop and alcohol flavours to balance.  The beer is then carbonated,  then kegged or bottled and ready to drink.
The Mash/Lauter Tun
The mash tun is where the grain is mixed with hot water,  activating enzymes in the seeds that convert the starch into sugar.
After the conversion of the starch into sugar (1.5 hours),  hot water is sparged through the grain bed into the kettle dissolving the sugar.  The term lautering refers to the filtering of the wort through the grain bed.
The wort is cooled and transferred into the fermentation vessel.  Yeast is added to the wort and fermentation converts sugars into alcohol.  This process takes around 4 days When fermentation is complete the beer is then transferred to the conditioning tanks.

Mudgee Spring 5%
Mudgee Spring is an American style Pale Ale which features Cascade and
Hallertau hops. These hops provide amazing aromas and flavours to this
Black IPA (6.5%) - Our Black Indian Pale Ale is neither Pale nor Indian. This beer is a dark ale displaying upfront hoppiness of the American Amarillo hops combined with the malty flavours of the dark malts.
Citra IPA (6.5%) - Our American style IPA is full of up-front flavours and hoppiness to give a full rich mouthfeel. A long lingering bitter finish makes this a deeply satisfying ale. This is where craft beer drinkers step up and get their badge of authenticity.
Galaxy Pale Ale (4.5%) - Brewed with Australian Galaxy hops, our Australian Pale Ale has a fruity upfront hoppiness with a raised level of bitterness providing a refreshing beer suited to the Australian climate.
Smokey Red (5.1%) - Some of the best inventions happen by pure accident. Penicillin and our Smokey Red are two examples. Gary was about to throw out a bag of smoked malt when he decided to throw some into a brew of IPA. The result is a cracker, a smooth red ale with a hint of smoke, named in honour of his red-headed wife Debbie.
