Recipe Specials for October
If you're planning on beer to the Pacific
Gravity/CCHBS Holiday Party, and if you're not you should be, this
is the time to brew them. To make it easier for you, we've got some
great recipes on special this month.
Our first recipe special is Santa
Monica Pale Ale. This is our single most popular recipe so we don't
usually put it on special. Just think of it as our little Christmas
present to you because it's only $22 during October.
Next is another pale ale, Burton
Pale Ale. This is a long-time favorite and is very popular with
anyone who likes Bass Ale. Try it for $22 during October.
Another old recipe is Old
Perpendicular, which is an English Old Ale. Strong, but not too
hoppy, it's on sale for $30 during October.
Finally, we're continuing the special on our Holiday Spiced, because
some of you just have to add spice to your holiday season beers. You
know who you are. If you resemble that remark, you can brew it for just
$30 this month.
Wyeast Seasonal Yeasts in Stock
We just got the Wyeast Pacman, Canadian/Belgian and Schelde Ale yeasts
in. Pacman is Rogue's proprietary yeast and this is the first time it's
available on the market. The Canadian/Belgian strain is also from a
well-known brewery: Unibroue. Schelde Ale is a little bit harder to
pin down, but since the Schelde River runs through Antwerp, current
speculation is that it is most likely the DeKoninck yeast.
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.
10 Gallon Corny Keg in Stock
We have a single 10 gallon corny keg in stock. If you've been trying
to find one, you know how rare these have become. Several Pacific Gravity
members use these as fermenters for 9 gallon batches, so if you've been
thinking about going to stainless steel fermenters, this is the cheapest
way to do it.
Beer Guns in Stock
We're stocked up on the Beer Gun bottle fillers again, so if you came
by while we were sold out it's time to try again. If you haven't heard
of these yet, they're supposed to be the easiest, quickest way to fill
bottles from a keg. Everyone who's bought one from us so far has loved
them, so take a look
LATE NEWS: Whole Amarillo, Centennial & Simcoe
We just ordered these hard to find hops, for delivery on Friday the
6th. If you haven't tried Amarillo, you're in for a treat. It's got
an orange/tangerine flavor and aroma, as opposed to the classic grapefruit-like
Cascade. Centennial is the hop Sierra Nevada uses for Celebration Ale,
so break out those clone recipes. Simcoe is a hop we're asked about
often, but can't usually get. It's a high alpha hop with what's described
as a piney aroma. All three are grown on limited acreage and sell out
fast, so don't waste time because when this shipment is gone, we probably
won't be able to get any more. The price will be a little higher at
$1.50/ounce but all of these hops are worth the extra quarter.
