    Pilsen Malt; Malteries Franco-Belges

Enhances enzymatic activity in mash and improves extract efficiency. Lightens color in pale brews. Enhances stability and extends shelf life of finished beer. Promotes well-rounded, complex beer flavor. Recommended Quantities: Up to 10% of total grain bill. Each 1% lowers mash pH by 0.1. Suitability (beer styles): Any ale or lager, especially Pils/Pilsner/Pilsener, low-alcohol beers, wheat beers

  • Imperial Yeast B45 Gnome

    Imperial Yeast B45 Gnome

    Gnome is the yeast for brewing Belgian inspired beers in a hurry. This strain is extremely flocculent and drops out of the beer quickly after fermentation. Gnome produces a nice phenolic character that goes well with hops, as well as with caramel and toffee flavors. Great for Belgian ales that need to be crystal clear without filtration.
