January Recipe Specials
In March, the Pacific
Gravity meeting will feature Stouts and Marzen. Culver
City Stout and Cool Runnings
Caribbean Stout are both well-known recipes, so it's on surprise
we're putting them on special. But the big news is the introduction
of a new recipe: My Favorite
Marzen. The Marzen style is better known as Oktoberfest and is one
of the classic lager styles. But this recipe is a variation of Harrison
Gibbs' Marzen Ale and is suitable for brewing as either a lager or an
ale. It'll cost only $26 to try the recipe during January but after
that the price is going up to $30. Also on special is Culver
City Stout, one of our oldest and most popular recipes. It's a classic
Irish Dry Stout and you can try it for $22 in January. Our final special
is Cool Runnings Caribbean Stout.
Stronger and less bitter than a dry stout, you can buy it for $30 during
New Product - Sinamar
Sinamar is an all-malt coloring agent from Weyermann. Created to give
German brewers a way to darken their beers while remaining Reinheitsgebot-compliant,
it offers some great advantages for any homebrewer. Rated at ~3100 lovibond,
1 oz. will raise 5 gallons of beer 10 SRM. If you're interested in brewing
a dark-colored beer that doesn't have the bitter quality dark-roasted
malts provide, you should consider this one.
New Wyeast Pilsner Yeasts
We've started stocking two yeasts that don't show up in the Wyeast
catalog or website: WY2000 Czech Budvar yeast and WY2001 Pilsner Urquell
H-Strain yeast. If you have any interest in brewing Bohemian Pilsners,
this should be all you need to know. Previously exclusive to St. Pat's,
they're now available to the rest of us - and we've got them!
5.2 pH Stabilizer
This is a great product and we're surprised that it isn't flying off
the shelves. If you're an all-grain or partial-mash brewer and you want
to make light-colored beers like Pilsners, or dark beers like Robust
Porter or Stouts, you should be taking advantage of the way 5.2 pH Stabilizer
will bring your mash within the proper pH range.
Extra! - Dusseldorf Alt Yeast Now a Seasonal!
Thanks to demand from brewers like you, who showed the value of this
great yeast through special orders, White
Labs is bringing their Dusseldorf Alt yeast back as a seasonal.
It won't be released for a few more months, but we're letting you know
now so you won't miss out when we ask for orders.
