One of our main goals at the store is to give you a place where you can get everything you need for your homebrewing in one stop. We’ve heard great things about our selection of grains, hops and yeasts, but we still wanted to offer more. Last week we did just that. We think you’ll love the new lineup of things we’re carrying, in addition to everything we had before.
Let’s start with the hops. We always had a very difficult time getting several of the hop varieties in stock… especialy the big C’s. No more! This is a list of NEW hop pellet varieties we have in stock now:
Czech Saaz, French Strisselspalt, German Hurkules, German Merkur, German Opal, German Smaragd, German Spalt, German Traditional, NZ Pacific Jade, Styrian Aurora, Styrian Celeia, Styrian Goldings, UK Admiral, UK Phoenix, UK Target, US Ahtanum, US Brewers Gold, US Centennial Type, US Citra, US Fuggle, US Glacier, US Liberty, US Millennium, US Mt Hood, US Newport, US Palisade, US Santiam, US Sorachi Ace, US Sterling, US Summit, US Vangaurd, US Warrior and US Zythos
Some of these are standard hops that we just had a very difficult time getting a hold of before and some of these are just plain new to us. Even better, they come from Hop Union, a hop producer that most homebrewers know and trust. In addition to the new hop pellets, we have a new selection of whole leaf hops that are perfect for dry hopping. Our selection of whole leaf hops includes:
Czech Saaz, US Amarillo, US Centennial, US Chinook, US Citra, US Columbus, US Simcoe and US Sorachi Ace.
We’ve all made beer that required spices of one kind or another, and you always needed to make a trip to Whole Foods or someplace similar to find them. We now carry over 20 types of high quality brewing spices made by Brewer’s Best. Whether you’re making a Blue Moon clone or a vanilla porter, we’ve got you covered. These are great choices for any upcoming fall seasonals, pumpkin beers and winter warmers you might be planning. Our new brewing spices include the following:
Allspice Powder, Bitter Orange Peel, Cardamom Seed, Chicory Root, Coriander Seed, Dried Elderberries, Elderflowers, Dried Ginger Root, Heather Tips, Indian Sarsaparilla, Juniper Berries, Lemon Peel, Licorice Root, Lime Peel, Mugwort, Dried Paradise Seeds, Rose Hips, Star Anise, Sweet Orange Peel, Vanilla Beans, Wintergreen Leaves, Dried Woodruff andDried Wormwood
Fruit Extracts, Candi Sugar and Oak Chips
If you like fruit beers but want to skip all the work of adding real fruit, we now carry a full line of Brewer’s Best flavoring extracts. These are designed specifically for beer and wine. Our selection includes the following flavors:
Apple, Apricot, Banana, Black Currant, Blackberry, Blueberry, Cherry, Cranberry, Ginger, Grape, Peach, Raspberry, Strawberry and Watermelon
If you’re looking for deeper flavors from beet and date sugar, we have three new Belgian candi syrups available in light, medium and dark. These are perfect for your next Belgian Dubble or Tripel. In addition, we also have two new types of oak chips; French Oak and Whiskey Barrel.
We’re always trying to expand our selection and have everything you need when you come in to make a batch of homebrew. Stop in, check out our new product selection and let us know what you think. We take a lot of pride in being able to help you make your best beer!
