I'll guess John Riddich. Matt was a regular at the restaurant I was sommelier in three years ago, and a friend of mine who worked there with me is now one of Dave's rising star wine makers. Have been to a few wine dinners with him over here with suppliers, never a dull moment. Mount Mary guys I've dealt with a lot over the years. First house I ever lived in was in Wandin North. Left Melbourne pretty young though.
Nup Patrick of Coonawarra Home Block Cab. Never been a Riddoch fan, Michael Shiraz, yes, Black Label Cab yes, but always thought the Riddoch was over oaked.
Cool to meet you man, now I am trying to work out the restaurant……..

Now you guys are talking, brew kits, wine making and cannabis. In the U.S. big companies watered down our beers, wines that give me a headache & china's "green crack" at least in Europe has me growing & brewing as well. Cheers.

Hi SS, I can’t get over light beer being the default go to in the states whenever you hear or see ppl ordering beer, ie Coors Light. Just stab me. Light beer, low alcohol wine, sugar free this and that, might as well be dead.
Gimme a hard hitting IPA, any decent wine w a few years on it an happy to grow the meds. Not a smoker just like growing the plant.
Have a fab weekend

Day 8 of 84. The CC system is finished and i tried to commission it this arvo. Leaks in the line at the pump one side of the rez tank and return line other side of rez tank. Everything INSIDE the tent is golden. The issue is cheap shitty plastic clamps. Thanks a lot guys, how much more do i have to spend? They have proper stainless clamps on the manifolds either end of the setup and shitty plastic ones where the pressure is in the system.😒.
Anyway, girls doin great. They went into the 75mm cubes 5 days ago. I saturated the cubes and haven’t given them a drop since. They sooked for a day or so but are hitting their stride now:

Bit hard to tell but second set of true leaves established, nice sturdy little stems, they doin fine, roots poking thru on the bottom of all 5. Really don’t want to feed them anything til the system is commissioned, hopefully tomoz.

I’m not sayin I did it. I’m not sayin i didn’t do it. I’m just sayin I MIGHT have done it.

Ok I did it.

Thought i would inspect the ball valve b4 condemning the joins in the line compleeeetely. In my defence I had 4 beers whilst doing it and turned into Bruce Banner. So Current Culture off the hook for THAT one.
However, I had to over engineer the fark out of the joins at the pump connection to stop the leaking. 3 stainless self tightening screw thingys within about a foot but it is done. Veeeery slow leak, but aquaponic guys will know that biofilm will seal that up in a day or so.

One thing that bothers me is the noise of the system, the air pump in particular. Specifically the relief diffuser below the ball valve that you adjust to keep pressure to the air stones in the grow pots within recommended guidelines. Bit noisy. Currently located at the front of the system close to the garage door. Might have to move it to the back of the room and muffle that noise somehow. Suggestions welcome.
Noise from the water splashing etc into the Epi bin at the front is much more muted, once the lid is on.

Day 10 of 84
Orright, nice progress tonight. System together, pump runnin, one light fitted. (The other is caring for the girls in the main bathroom.)
In no particular order, I need to:
Mix initial nute solution, might do it tonight and get it into the system b4 the plants go in.
Hook up the inline fan and charcoal filter, (got a few days up my sleeve really, they don’t smell yet)
Get a couple small fans for air circulation
Site dehu
Determine what to do about location/noise of air pump relief valve.

I have 4 slots and 5 plants (100%germination, so something has to give.)

This has not been without stress or angst. Persistence and patience always beats fear and self doubt.
I am 10 days into a new home following a marriage bust up. I have moved house, kept my spirits up at work, looked after my girls here, put the above system together and bedded it down in that time, quietly persisting one day one minute at a time.
I still have much to do, in everything, but this gives me focus and pleasure. I need fans asap but have a little time for the other essentials listed yesterday.
Started today w week 1 of CC nutes. Might continue for 3 weeks only to give them maximum opportunity to flower in available time. See how we go. Will run 18/6 so i can veg next crop of photos at the same time. Gotta get cracking on them shortly.
Thanks for the inspiration here folks and i might just have a liddle drinky winky tonight. 😁
Oh, found a home for the fifth girl, so she be adopted out this weekend.

So I have BB3, GG4 and Lemon Haze to come for the next crop. Do you have any thoughts/experience w these? I am also thinking if every second crop is an auto crop, i can veg the subsequent photo crop at the same time (18/6) I haven’t done the maths on time v yield, it is just a brain fart atm….

I’ve grown both Bruce banner 3 and gg4 both excellent knockout strains never had much to do with hazes to long of a flower period for me man 11-13 weeks normally I think mate I’ve only ever grown 1 auto and it was blue dream auto from the old bonza seeds it turned out shithouse but I did only give it 12/12 in the flower room autos have come a long way now though so I reckon u be sweet👍

Had a funny chat w mum last night. She all over it. I was bemoaning Krueger going to Collingwood. Gun tall young well built defender who would take Hendo’s spot next year. Mum was like ‘nah nah, all part of the plan, we will bring him back when he is 30 and trade a future first rounder for him.’ Pissed ourselves laughing. My mum can be very funny when she is not trying to be…

Yeah something isn’t right. Get rid of 2 kids when we need youth and speed. I have high hopes for Bett’s nephew who has committed to us. Thanks Eddy. He and Miers will give us some real sting up fwd feeding off the big guys. My issue is around the middle. We need pace and grunt. Selwood, Paddy and Duncan can’t keep doin it.. Guthrie is a jet but not a beast like Oliver or Petrarcha. Boo is great but his disposal is Suss. It just puts pressure on our defence if we don’t get the clearance. Stanley I can live with, we are not that far away but fuck i hate losing in the last week or two of the season
