Brewing Bible

Palmer wrote the book on Home Brewing... literally. This is version... 4? No more valuable resource available.

A classic German beer

An easy brew that settles well on the palate, as with most German beers temperature influences the flavor.

Came faster then I though it would

Vintner's Best Upgraded Wine Equipment Kit

Love it

Great beer with high hop profile. Absolutely will do again.

A Great NE IPA

The beer turned out Excellent

Great for any lager

I've used this on a couple brews now and have been happy with the flavor profile, and the quick and complete fermentation. I will use for all my lagers now.

My first Juicy IPA

Everything looked great during the fermentation, I dry hopped it in the secondary. The aroma that I got during the legging process was excellent. I will be trying it in a few days

Bad Yeast

All taken care of - thanks for the great customer service! Keep up the good work!

Thanks for your kindness Dennis. We're glad we were able to work everything out. Enjoy the beer! Cheers!
Bad Yeast

The recipe and beer itself is fine (fermenting now) however I did not specify the liquid yeast as it was being mailed. I figured it would be best to go with the dry yeast. When I opened the box, 3 days after it was delivered, I noticed that I got liquid yeast for both my beer recipes. Had I known that, I would have gotten them in the fridge ASAP. One smack pack yeast did work, but the one for the Charlie Brown ale was spoiled. Also, your recipes did not specify if they came with a bag for the grains so I ordered one for each of my beers, which as it turns out, came with bags. I guess now I have two extra.

Brew & Grow

Purchased a 8-valve chrome manifold for a "government project" and have been very satisfied. 1st time visited this website, but won't be the last.

Thanks for your review Mark! We're glad you had a good experience and enjoy your product.
Skeeterpee

Had a skeeter pee batch stuck with the original 1118 and this yeast was amazing. Get stuck and get this.Put your must in another carboy.Make sure you aerate the heck out of your stuck show with a drill and the Stainless Steel Mix-Stir or anything that can mix it with a frothy ending and add little more yeast nutrient and yeast energizer .Mixing it with a stir stick by hand won't work. Just make sure your stuck show is at 70 to 74 F when you do this. Amazing results. I have not tried a start batch with this yeast. Going to try it soon.

Thanks for your review Ray and also thank you very much for the helpful tips on Skeeter Pee!
Good smooth beer

This one is another of my new favorites among the Belgian beers. Just a good smooth crisp easy drinking beer. Looking forward to being this more.

Thanks for the review Ken. We are glad you enjoyed the beer. Saisons are awesome!

Thanks for your review Ken. We appreciate your business and are glad you enjoyed the beer!

BE-134 - 5 Stars

This has become my go to saison yeast, BE-134 produces a really nice beer. Fermented at standard ale temps it produces a nice balance of flavors between esters, phenols, malt and hops. The final beer is crisp, bright (flavor) and very quaffable. In a keg it will go completely clear after a week or so of conditioning with no fining. Its also great bottle conditioned, producing that classic saison refermented character. This is really a standout yeast and in its dry format its so easy to use.

Yeast Energizer

Thanks for the review Ray. Let us know how the Skeeter Pee turns out!
Long story short

The yeast grew, but there was a glitch with Robobrew. That was resolved last Friday and the new slap pack is in the primary as of about two hours ago. I grew it up a bit with DME; I expect it will be super. Great customer service!

Thanks for the review Walter and enjoy your new Robobrew!

1 Gallon White Grow Bags - 100 Count

Thanks Tony!
Good but almost too much

I love a good hoppy IPA but this one just has a little too much. Could almost do with just an ounce of dry hops. It's good, just a little over the top.

Thanks for the review Ken. On the Fly is definitely a hoppy beer. This kit is the actual homebrew recipe for Bells Two Hearted Ale.
