We recently worked with White Labs to create "The Best Of Both Worlds" yeast!
Blending WLP001 and WLP002 Right in the Vial
We asked our friends at White Labs if the two strains could be blended right in the vial. They told us it was possible (and they even liked the idea!) so we began working on a final formula. Because English tends to dominate just a little, we lowered the percentage of English and raised the percentage of California in the final…

I have been making lambic style beers since obtaining small oak barrels about 2008 or 2009. My process is a bit different from that I have seen in books and articles. One of the first differences is my use of bulgur wheat as the cracked wheat in my grain bill. I had previously tried cracking wheat with my mill and the one at the LHBS, and its some really hard stuff. That led me to the local grocery store, where I found cracked wheat in the form of bulgur:…Continue

We decided that it had been a little too long since our last beer tasting, so recently got together a random (but delicious) assortment of beers. In the mix were a couple of sours from Logsdon (blue and red lables), the Bruery's "Reuze" (white label), Cantillon's Geuze (small bottle), along with a six pack of Lagunitas' Day Time "Fractional IPA", and the classic Old Rasputin Imperial Russian Stout from North Coast Brewing. At the end of the day, I would have to say that my favorite of…Continue

We've just released the newest addition to our recipe kit selection: The M-80 IPA! This recipe is packed with a half pound of hops, but that's not the focus of this beer. After a couple days of primary fermentation, you add orange zest and orange chunks straight into the fermenter! The result is a hop-forward aroma and flavor, with a hint of citrus. If you're looking for an excellent IPA to brew, we highly recommend the M-80!…Continue

The MoreBeer! hop rhizome presale has begun! If you've ever thought about growing your own hops, now is the time to place your pre-order to reserve the rhizomes you'd like to grow this year. We ask that you place only rhizomes on your pre-order, to prevent additional shipping charges (non-rhizome items will be split to their own order, and additional shipping charges may apply).
To view our selection, click…Continue
