Consecration Kits – Includes Actual Consecration Barrel Chunk – In Stock and On Sale!

from MoreBeer… “Beer lovers rejoice! Vinnie from Russian River Brewing Co. has released his Consecration recipe to us, and we’re very proud to be able to offer it to the homebrewing community. Consecration is a sour dark ale aged in a Cabernet Sauvignon barrel. It is aged for 4 to 8 months with currants and brettanomyces. You can look for rich flavors of chocolate truffle, spice, tobacco, currants, and a bit of Cabernet.

What sets this kit apart from any other kit out there, is the fact that we include a chunk of an actual consecration barrel in each one! Whether or not the bacteria from the original beer will form their own colony in your beer is hard to prove right or wrong. Either way, we think it is pretty cool!”

Availability of Consecration Kits at MoreBeer can be touch and go (guessing this has to do with sourcing actual Consecration Barrels, but that’s only a guess).  As such I don’t often see this kit specifically discounted.  As of this posting, these kits are both in stock and on sale for HBF Readers.

For a limited time, MoreBeer is taking $6 off your choice of Russian River Recipe Kits when you use promo code HBFRRBC6.  The lineup includes Pliny the Elder, Consecration and Blind Pig IPA in both extract and all grain versions.  With the discount prices start at just $25.99.  Shipping is free to most US addresses with a $59 order.

A note on Consecration:  I’m not big on picking favorites.  I think there are far too many good things to pick favorites on most things.  Having said that, if I were going to write down a list of my favorite beers, Consecration would certainly be towards the top.  This is an amazing beer.

New: East Coast Yeast Senne Valley Blend

lyec01

East Coast Yeast specializes in artisanal yeast blends and pure yeast strains of long forgotten and difficult to find yeasts.

East Coast Yeast has released their new Senne Valley Blend, ECY31

About… ” Intended for primary fermentations due to the portfolio of wild oxidative yeasts. Emulating ales by employing similar microflora recently observed from a prominent Lambic producer, this new blend includes various unique yeasts (Debaryomyces, Priceomyces , Wickerhamomyces, and Pichia). Contributes to aroma through the production of volatile compounds and higher terpenol flavors. Rounding out the blend : Lactic bacteria, Wild-type Saccharomyces from the Senne Valley, and multiple strains of Brettanomyces bruxellensis. Extremely wild with notes of smokey barnyard, musty funk, and ethyl acetate. We recommend ageing a minimum of one (1) year.”

Availability of ECY is sketchy at best.  It’s my understanding they are a small operation.  When pitches become available they generally sell out quickly.

What sets this kit apart from any other kit out there, is the fact that we include a chunk of an actual consecration barrel in each one!
