    2-Row Brewers Malt;Briess

    Mild malty flavor. Characteristics & Applications: • Base malt for all beer styles • Smoother, less grainy flavor than 6-Row Brewers Malt. • Slightly higher yield than 6-Row Brewers Malt. • Slight lower protein than 6-Row Brewers Malt. • Produced from AMBA/BMBRI recommended 2-Row Malting Barley varieties.

  • .25 lbs Roasted Barley;Briess

    Roasted Barley;Briess

    Intensely bitter coffee flavor. Characteristics & Applications: • Use 3-7% for coffee flavor in Porter and Stout • Use 2-5% in Nut Brown Ales. • Use Chocolate Malt or Black Malt in combination with Roasted Barley to obtain desired color. • Produced from AMBA/BMBRI recommended 6-Row Malting Barley varieties.

  • .5 lbs 2-Row Caramel Malt 60L;Briess

    2-Row Caramel Malt 60L;Briess

    Sweet, Pronounced Caramel. Characteristics & Applications: • In contrast to Brewers Malt, glassiness is a distinguishing characteristic of Caramel Malt. The glassy endosperm creates the desirable non-fermentable components giving true Caramel Malt the ability to contribute body (mouthfeel), foam foam retention, and extended beer stability, while contributing color and unique caramel flavor. • 2-Row Caramel Malt 60L is a roasted caramel malt that imparts deep golden to red color. • Use 3-7% for Pilsener-style beers for balance. • Use 5-15% to provide color, sweetness and color to amber and red beers. • Produced from AMBA/BMBRI recommended 2-Row Malting Barley varieties.

  • .75 oz Hallertauer Tradition -6.0 AA% pellets; boiled 45 min

    Hallertauer Tradition

    Fine, 'Noble'.

  • 1 oz Centennial -9.0 AA% whole; boiled 30 min


    Aromatic but acceptable for bittering. Medium aroma with floral and citrus tones. Good in medium to dark ales.

  • .75 oz Pacific Jade -13.0 AA% pellets; boiled 10 min

    Pacific Jade

    Suited for use as a bittering hop with some excellent results also being seen in dual purpose applications, with a soft bitterness attributable to the low cohumulone. The citrus aroma and flavour notes work well to temper malt sweetness in “fullish” Ales especially when used moderately as a finishing hop. Pacific Jade is also well suited to balance dryer Lager styles when employed as an “up-front” kettle addition to showcase its bittering qualities.—NZ Hops Limited

  • DanstarNottingham


    The Nottingham strain was selected for its highly flocculant & relatively full attenuation properties. It produces low concentrations of fruity and estery aromas and has been described as neutral for ale yeast, allowing the full natural flavor of malt & hops to develop. The recommended fermentation temperature range of this strain is 14° to 21°C (57° to 70°F) with good tolerance to low fermentation temperatures (12°C/54°F) that allow this strain to be used in lager-style beer. With a relatively high alcohol tolerance, Nottingham is a great choice for creation of higher-alcohol specialty beers!
