BIAB-3_large

The Brew Bag is a Made in the USA, purpose designed BIAB bag.  It has four loops for lifting the bag out of your kettle, every seam is reinforced for long life and it is available in a number of sizes for kettles, keggles and coolers.  If they don’t carry the size you want, The Brew Bag will custom make it for you.

I use The Brew Bag myself and it works very well. Check out my Hands on Review.

brewinabag.com also carries hop bags, stubby (biab friendly) kettle thermometers, pulley systems and high temp gloves.

For a short time, the Brew Bag is taking 15% off site wide when you order $30 or more.  This matches the highest percent off sale I’ve ever seen offered.  Now is a great time to pick up BIAB gear!

Use Promo Code – ENDOFMAY15% to get the 15% off – valid on purchases of $30 or more.

Introducing… love2brew Blends!

love2brewblends

love2brew has introduced their new Blends series of recipe kits.  The basic idea behind these is… you get two seperate 2.5 gallon beer kits that are designed to be brewed separately.  That gets you two different beers… awesome.  The recipes are also designed to compliment each other should you decide to try your hand at blending them… double awesome.  Blending gives you three different beers.  Both extract and all grain blends are available.

I think this is a brilliant idea.  2.5 gallon batches are super easy to brew [See: Small Batch, All Grain Stove Top Brewing],  These kits give you flexibility and variety.

From love2brew: “Each Blends Beer Recipe Kit contains two 2.5 Gallon Recipes. Each recipe has fresh ingredients individually packaged with complete instructions. Each Blends™ Beer Recipe Kit also contains the following: Our Blends™ Strategy Guide; a detailed guide explaining the objectives and best practices of blending your own beers. A specific blending guide for the Blends™ Beer Recipe Kit you chose that details our tasting observations for each blend, exact blending ratios for our recommended blend suggestions, and notes on how to best enjoy your blended brews. In addition we include our Love2brew Blends™ Tasting Evaluation Sheet so you can experiment with our own ratios and notes, crafting your own perfect concoction! The best part about Love2brew Blends™ is that there is no wrong way to enjoy! Your only limitation is your own creativity!”

Mash Tun Sizing Guidelines

mltsizetable

How big of a mash tun do I need is a relatively common question.  The answer depends on what type of beers you want to brew (higher gravity = more grain), how large of batches you want to brew and what technique you will use to mash.  Brew Hardware has put together a chart and related guide for estimating mash tun size required based on efficiency and mashing method.

75 lb Digital Scale with Removable Face [Grain]

Ultraship 75 Lb Electronic Digital Shipping Postal Kitchen Scale

Ultraship 75 lb capacity digital scale with removable face.  This scale is very similar to the Top Find Ultraship 55 lb scale.  Check out my Hands on Review of the Ultraship 55.

Detachable, digital readout with two foot long cord.  Tare, Hold and (programmable) Auto Off Features.  Weighs in pounds, ounces, kilograms and grams.  Can operate using batteries or an AC adapter.  Large, Blue backlit LCD Display.

The removable face on this scale makes it easy to weight larger items… like buckets of grain.  This is a great grain scale.

Genotype: “Love this scale. Use it every brew day. Haven’t been able to max it out yet, but hasn’t let me down yet.”

Twitter Follower @BraidAndBeard: “I have one of these. This thing is great.”
