    BriesSweetâ„¢ White Sorghum Syrup 45DE High Maltose; Briess

    BriesSweetTM White Sorghum Syrup 45DE High Maltose is a concentrated wort made from 100% white sorghum grain. Produced in a state-of-the-art, five-vessel brewhouse using an all natural, enzyme-based brewing process. As a grain-based syrup, it provides proteins and amino acids necessary for yeast nutrition, head retention and body along with color and flavor. Gluten free, hypo allergenic, non-GMO. Functions as a 1:1 substitute for LME for 100% extract brewing to produce gluten free beer. Its unique flavor is quite mild, allowing it to be used in any recipe as a unique liquid adjunct to boost initial gravities while increasing overall brewing capacity. Use with concentrated worts to produce almost any beer style.

  • Fermentis US-05 Safale US-05

    Fermentis US-05 Safale US-05

    The most famous ale yeast strain found across America, now available as a ready-to-pitch dry yeast. Produces well balanced beers with low diacetyl and a very clean, crisp end palate. Sedimentation: low to medium. Final gravity: medium. Pitching instructions: Re-hydrate the dry yeast into yeast cream in a stirred vessel prior to pitching. Sprinkle the dry yeast in 10 times its own weight of sterile water or wort at 27C± 3C(80F ±6F). Once the expected weight of dry yeast is reconstituted into cream by this method (this takes about 15 to 30 minutes), maintain a gentle stirring for another 30 minutes. Then pitch the resultant cream into the fermentation vessel. Alternatively, pitch dry yeast directly in the fermentation vessel providing the temperature of the wort is above 20C(68F). Progressively sprinkle the dry yeast into the wort ensuring the yeast covers all the surface of wort available in order to avoid clumps. Leave for 30 minutes and then mix the wort e.g. using aeration.


1.5 oz. Cascade - Dry hop in primary Add honey at flame out.
