Gwion, That Woolly wombat Ale sounds good.

Prices....A bit above Vic?
That bit of water called Bass Straight is some of the most expensive water in the world. By the time things get here its dollar value has increased substantially. Hope your travels go well. Weather in Tas can be.....interesting. I live up in the mountains and you pack for all four seasons regardless of the time of the year. If you do get to cradle Mt the weather is very unpredictable. Be prepared. It is over run by tourists and the best time to go is in rough weather as there are few tourists and you get to see the area at its best, wild and unforgiving. As said above, you will not see much of the mountain as it will be hidden in mist. If you are into walking just go around the back of the mountain and you will have the place to yourselves with a couple of huts to stop in. Good day walk. But you need to be prepared for the weather!!!!!!!!!!

I'll be bottling a dark ale myself on about 20 minutes. Just waiting for it to settle after adding the sugar solution.
