Upper Hutt Leader : November 9th 2011
6 UPPER HUTT LEADER, NOVEMBER 9, 2011 NEWS VOTING IN THE REFERENDUM MADE EASY! For some simple tools to help you decide, visit elections.org.nz - or you can call 0800 36 76 56 The second question asks which of four other voting systems you would choose if New Zealand decides to change from MMP. You'll find out more about them at www.elections.org.nz On the Referendum paper, there are two questions to answer. The first is whether you think New Zealand should keep MMP, or change to another voting system. At this year's General Election, there's a referendum on our voting system. So when you go to vote, along with your orange ballot paper for the General Election, you'll get a purple Referendum one too. If we vote for a change of system, Parliament will decide if there is another referendum in 2014 to choose between MMP and the most popular alternative. If we vote to keep MMP, there will be an independent review to assess if there should be any changes to the way it works. 3880972AI TAKE IT TO THE CROOKS!

Hops provide bitterness and act as a preservative. From there it is strained to keep back the hops, chilled to 18 degrees Celsius from boiling and put into a fermentation vessel with yeast to convert the sugars into alcohol and carbon dioxide gas. After a few days the fermentation vessel is capped and kept under a constant pressure as fermentation completes to condition the beer until it is ready to be racked under pres- sure into kegs. From there it can be packed into bottles or be put on tap. Water used to cool the beer goes into tanks for use on the garden. Most home brewing leaves sedi- ment in the bottom of the bottles but the system Mr Mills uses does not. It makes beer more slowly than a large commercial brewery but quicker than home brewing. For many years around New Zea- land local breweries supplied their nearby markets and Mr Mills is keen to see it again here. Mr Mills has done food matching for the nibbles to be served with the beers at the invitation-only launch. Beers can be matched with foods the same way wine is, he says. He hopes to grow the business carefully as the maximum pro- duction is 100 litres a week. He says contracting out some styles is a possibility but then they would not be made in Upper Hutt which is part of the attraction. He says Upper Hutt has a high number of boutique beer enthusiasts. Kereru Brewing Company's five beers are Silverstream Pale Ale, Hop to It, Moonless Stout, Auro and Velvet Boot (a strong Belgian ale). Prices for a 330 millilitre bottle range from $5 to $7, depending on the style. Mr Mills can sell only wholesale to licensed venues. The only outlet is the Mayfair Cafe for onsite consumption. Mr Mills is also seeking a licence to sell from his brewery by appointment or delivery and online. Corgis to show off Not just a royal attraction Auckland senior librarian Natalie Mahony has added a cup to the prizelist to spur corgis to even greater heights at the sec- ond National Corgi Agility Championships. The Mahony-donated cup will be presented to the overall win- ner at the Upper Hutt cham- pionships venue on Sunday, November 13. Corgis will fly around the obstacle courses and disprove the notion that they are good only for herding cattle, sheep and ducks and paying homage to royalty. Organiser Michael Romanos, of the Wellington Welsh Corgi Walking Club, says he hopes Sue Lane and her corgi Miller will turn up to defend the title they won last year. The champs will be staged at the Upper Hutt Dog Training School venue, Railway Ave, Maidstone Park, starting at 1pm. Entries will be taken on the day. Only pure-bred corgis are eli- gible to compete. The judge and course designer is Karen de Wit, of Upper Hutt, who is also an executive member of Agility New Zealand. The public are invited to attend. There are no gate charges. Candidates Blue Mountains Progressive Assoc- iation meet the candidates evening on Tuesday, November 15, at 7.30pm at the BMPA Hall on Avian Cres. Boy talk in aid of kindy Renowned author, researcher and social com- mentator Celia Lashlie will speak about Grow- ing gorgeous boys into good men as a fundraiser for Trentham Kindy.
