  • 11 lbs Superior Pilsen Malt; Canada Malting

    Superior Pilsen Malt; Canada Malting

    Produced from selected lots of premium Canadian grown Copeland barley, Canada Malting Superior Pilsen is low in total protein, high in extract and low in color which makes it a perfect base malt for lagers of all types.

  • .15 lbs Acidulated Malt; Weyermann®

    Acidulated Malt; Weyermann®

    German-grown two-row spring barley (2004 harvest). Product Characteristics: Lowers mash, wort, and beer pH. Contains 1−2% lactic acid. Slightly smoky. 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

  • .25 lbs Caramel Vienna Malt; Malteries Franco-Belges

    Caramel Vienna Malt; Malteries Franco-Belges

    This malt strengthens the color and increases the mellowness of all beer styles while also providing a fine aroma and taste.

  • 1.5 lbs Corn Sugar

    Corn Sugar

    Use in priming beer or in extract recipes where flaked maize would be used in a mash.

  • 1 oz Northern Brewer - 9.3 AA% whole; boiled 45 min

    Northern Brewer

    Used for bittering with strong flavors and very fragrant in steam beers, dark English ales, and German lagers. Aroma is medium-strong with evergreen and mint overtones.

  • 1 oz Hallertau - 2.9 AA% whole; boiled 30 min

    Hallertau

    Good for all around bittering and finishing stock ales, Belgian ales, and continental style lagers. Aroma is mild, pleasant and flowery.

  • 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.
