    I have my brew set up in the shed which helps, I mostly brew ales as they turn over quicker in the fermenter than lagers and also smell a lot nicer than a lager does while its bubbling away, the lager yeast tends to let off some egg like smells and also uses a bit more power in warmer weather as I need to run the fermenting fridge about 8 degrees lower than an ale.

    Hahaha, fucking hell speaking of gas... I have a 3 vessel brew set up in my shed so I can brew beer from scratch with the hops and barley etc. So yesterday I got a brew going and I was clever enough to leave the spent grain in reach of my dog and fuck me dead, this cattle dog is polluting the air of Melbourne's northern suburbs at an astonishing fucking rate. And to think they were worried about cows burning up the ozone layer...

    I bought this compressor for when I sprayed my XF, https://www.totaltools.com.au/air-tools/air-compressors/2-5hp-90l-belt-drive-air-compressor Did the job and its a 10 amp which is a bonus. Price seems to have increased since 2014 as I'm sure that I paid 700 for it, might have just been lucky. Either way it's been great, the pressure reg did pack up but I just put another one on the wall behind it so now it has 2 moisture/oil catches.

    Ok guys, last week I mentioned that I was considering getting a new steam cleaner (carpet and upholstery shampooer to be more precise) and I said I'd give it a review. So I ended up getting the one from the supercheap link that I posted and this is an early review as its only been put to use twice so far first on my FG-X which had the sultanas rubbed into the back carpets and second on a 2007 Pajero which has seen better days (lives on a farm). So far, Fucking fantastic. The FG-X carpets cleaned up easily to the point where the car has forgotten that sultanas even exist and the Pajero came up great too for a Bits-a-missing. The unit has 3 attachments which make getting around the seats and trims a lot easier than my old cleaner. Keep in mind that its not a vacuum cleaner so your car might need a pre clean if its a bit overdue. I'd also suggest that its used in warm weather and air out the car so the interior dries fully, I've always done this and haven't had any issues. The only negative about this unit is that the vac hose could be a bit longer but thats not too hard to work around. Im not saying it's the best unit out there but for me it was definitely a great buy. https://www.supercheapauto.com.au/p/bissell-bissell-auto-spot-clean-carpet-shampooer/ Cheers to 2redrovers for helping to convince me that I needed it.

    A meet somewhere along the way does sound like a good idea

    I'd say that I'll be getting one, the one I had before was great and it was a more basic model, and more importantly because you also have an XF that practically makes us old friends so I'll definitely leave a review.

    Hahaha well fuck looks like I have no choice then. Ironically she actually broke the old one too. Im keen on this little Bissel from supercheap, my old one was a Bissel Little Green which was a great unit, this one's basically the same but with a few extra attachments. https://www.supercheapauto.com.au/p/bissell-bissell-auto-spot-clean-carpet-shampooer/

    Now here's a tricky one, Do i buy a new steam cleaner or do I tell my mother in law that she can't eat sultanas in the car anymore... What a prick of a job it is getting those out of the carpets once they've been squashed and rubbed in.
