Recipe Specials for September
September is the time to start brewing the strong beers that sustain
us through those long winter nights spent huddled around the fireplace
while the howling wind outside build snowdrifts up the eaves of the
house. OK, so that doesn't ever happen in Los Angeles but since Pacific
Gravity's November style of the month is Strong Ales, it's still
a good time to brew strong beers. Accordingly, we've got some of our
stronger recipes on sale this month.
Our first recipe special is
Double Trouble Belgian Dubbel, continuing on special from last month.
It's a tasty extract version of one of the classic Trappist styles.
If you want it to be even better, try brewing it with a bottle of Candi
Sugar Syrup. $30 during September.
Next is an old favorite, Fred Waltman's classic King
Kong Porter. It's a Robust Porter in the vein of those from Anchor
or Sierra Nevada. Try it yourself for $30 during September.
Another recipe by one of our founders is Lynch's Kiltlifting Scotch
Ale. Steve Labrie created this one and it's a favorite of those who
like to sip a nice Scotch Ale. It's on sale for $30 during September.
Our Holiday Spiced Ale is one that doesn't appear on our list of recipes,
but it's good one nonetheless. It's a great choice for someone who wants
to try a spiced ale for the holidays. And you can brew it for $30 this
Seasonal Yeasts in Stock
We currently have Wyeast Roselare and Biere de Garde yeasts in stock
along with White Labs Dusseldorf Alt, Bavarian Weizen, Old Bavarian
Lager, Mexican Lager, Zurich Lager, Bastogne Belgian Ale. Soon we're
also going to have the Rogue Pacman yeast from Wyeast. This one should
go fast so if you want it, let us know now so we can order enough.
New Hop - Palisade
For those of you who like to experiment, we have some Palisade hop
plugs in stock. This is a new hop on the market and is bred from Swiss
Tettnanger. At 8.3% alpha acid it's a medium-bitter hop and has a flavor
and aroma similar to a noble hop. They also remind me of a much smoother
version of Chinook.
Reconditioned Corny Kegs in Stock
Our current bunch of corny kegs is the nicest looking we ever had.
They look almost new and couldn't have been in use by a soda company
for very long, if at all. If you're thinking about getting more kegs
or starting kegging, don't wait because we don't know how much longer
these will be available.
Liquid Yeast – Prices Going Up
It's been a long time since we raised the prices on Wyeast and White
Labs liquid yeast, but recent increases leave us no choice. Effective
October 1, we will start charging $7.50 for both White Labs tubes and
Wyeast activator packs. Don't forget that's $7.13 with a club discount.
