    Supplies Options.

    I just had the same email exchange with Anthony today. I ordered one that they didn't have and Anthony got right back to me and said he was about to order from Omega so they should have it next week. He hooked me up with a similar yeast for my brew day on Saturday.

    CO2 Refills - Near Haddon Heights

    For my 20# tank I exchange at SJ Welding on 38. I only use the 20 # to server beer from the keezer so it lasts like 1.5 to 2 years. It is only a few dollars more than a 5 pound exchange which I have done as well there. If I am going to exchange the big tank and I have an empty 5 pounder I will...

    Omega Lutra for cider or mead?

    Hi Matt, I haven't used Lutra in mead but I have used Hot Head and Voss in my hydromels 5-7%. I fermented around room temperature. I recommend using about 8 grams of Fermaid O (you can do 1 addition or split that up and add it over a few days) and daily degassing for the first week. This...

    Kölsch Tips? Yeast suggestions?

    I make a Kölsch a few times a year. I just kegged a batch last week. I have used both Llalemand and K-97 dry yeasts. I prefer the Fermentis personally. I found the Lallemand Köln to take even longer. I pitch 2 packs for 5 gallons and ferment about 60 until the krausen starts to drop which...
