We've recently received a new mash paddle, made out of a single piece of unfinished hardwood maple! Easily one of the best looking mash paddles we've ever encountered, these are also extremely efficient in evenly distributing your mash, and breaking up dough balls in the process. Looking for a new mash paddle or an awesome gift for that all grain brewer you know? Well make sure to check out the link below!…Continue

Make your brew day easier and your additions more efficient with a MoreBeer! Kettle Spider. Attach one of our reusable nylon bags with drawstring and use the Kettle Spider to steep grains in an extract batch or use for multiple hop additions in a boil.
The Kettle Spider makes bags easier to use with hops because it is open throughout the boil. Just keep adding the hops your recipe calls for. Also keeps bags off the bottom of the kettle, preventing a hole from…Continue

Last month I had the privilege to tour the Briess Malting facilities in Chilton, Wisconsin. I started my tour in the malting house which was built in the early 1900's - amazing. I have never toured a production/manufacturing facility that is over 100 years old and still being used for exactly what is was built for. From the cement wetting tanks to the Saladin style germination boxes to the storage compartments built from horizontally stacked 2x6's. I just kept looking around amazed.…Continue

So we decided to try cramming a session pale ale in after work yesterday, expecting to be up much later than we'd like, but after realizing our keezer was lacking a pale ale, knew that it had to be done. At lunch, we heated our mash water up so that when we got home we could dough in as quickly as possible. I was able to get home at 5:20, and we were doughed in at 6:00 sharp. The brew went fairly well, although we didn't get quite as much volume as we were hoping to (around 8…Continue

So a couple of weeks ago we had a group that decided to journey out to San Francisco (about 45 minutes from our Concord location) to a German restaurant. Their beer selection was impressive, and the quality was amazing! We had a few 2L Boots going around, and then decided to go for the big bad 5L mug. That thing is no joke - you could almost fit your face in the mug! If you're ever in San Francisco and looking for some good beer, food, and a great atmosphere, Suppenküche is definitely…Continue
