MoreBeer has released Cali Mountain Pale Ale, available in both all grain and extract versions. Cali Mountain Pale Ale is MoreBeer’s take on Sierra Nevada Pale Ale.
More about Cali Mountain Pale Ale
Our Cali Mountain Pale Ale is an attempt at one of the most iconic pale ales in the country: Sierra Nevada’s Pale Ale. This pale ale is a fairly simple recipe, cosisting of Briess 2-Row, Crystal 60L, and four hop additions. This being said, don’t be fooled. The flavors blend together perfectly, creating a complex yet easy to drink homebrew.
The bittering hop additions are Magnum and Perle which provide a clean bitterness that balances the sweetness from the Crystal 60L malt perfectly. The aroma hop and dry hop additions are both Cascade, providing a citrus & floral aroma as fresh as the forests in California’s mountains!

William’s Brewing has introduced a new line of micro regulators.
The Brewer’s Edge® Micro Regulator combines the precision of a Mini Regulator, with the portability of a simple gas injector. Featuring a 0-30 PSI range, precisely adjustable with the calibrated top knob. Best of all, it takes all standard 16 gram threaded and 74 gram threaded C02 cartridges, so you have the choice of a lightweight compact unit with the 16 gram, or a high capacity unit with the 74 gram cartridge. Lightweight aluminum construction means the total weight is just a hare under 5 ounces.
Features a 0-30 psi C02 regulator that features precise adjustment via the calibrated top adjustment knob. It features a inline stainless check valve between the regulator and the ball lock fitting to protect it from backflowing beer. With this 0-30 PSI model, you can both dispense and force carbonate. Includes a ¼ female flare fitting, to fit threaded gas ball lock disconnects and the Ultimate Growler Dispensing Head.
Micro regulators are available in a ball lock, female flare and male flare versions. A stainless mounting bracket is also available.
Portable Serving: As an on-the-go regulator.
Backup – I’m out of CO2 and I want to pour a beer! Use as a backup if your main CO2 tank runs out. Swap out the CO2 line for this regulator and you’ve got a temporary solution to keep you up and going until you can get more CO2.
Serve Beers at Alternate Carbonation Levels: This regulator goes up to 30 PSI. That’s plenty to serve high carbonation beers like Hefeweizens and Belgians. If you don’t have a dual or triple pressure setup, you could use this regulator to serve beers at higher pressures. I would not suggest force carbonation with this unit. The 74g cartridges would be pricey. You could carbonate using your existing regulator or just as easily naturally carbonate with priming sugar. After the beer is completely carbonated, use this to serve at the higher pressure.
Double wall stainless steel growler. Made from 304 stainless steel. Double wall insulation helps keep your beer cold for growlers. Spring wire lid capable of holding up to to 30 PSI. 2L/67 oz capacity.

“The Fermentasaurus is a unique, game changing conical fermenter for homebrewing. It is the perfect choice if you want to see your fermentation, dump trub, collect yeast, and even carbonate all in one vessel without any transfers or siphons. Made from clear PET the Fermentasauras offers the classic benefits of a conical shape without the cost of stainless. It will drastically cut down on oxidation by removing any need to rack your beer to a secondary vessel. And perhaps most amazingly it can be pressurized like a keg with the addition of the optional Fermentasaurus pressure kit.
The Fermentasaurus has a large 35L (9.25 gallons) size that makes it easy to ferment 5 gallon batches. The standard lid has a built in stopper and comes with an airlock. There is a butterfly dump valve at the base of the cone with a 500 ml harvesting container. This makes it very simple to remove the yeast at the bottom of your fermenter without exposing your beer to oxygen. The handy harvesting container also allows you to store the yeast to use on your next batch! The dump valve has been designed so that no threads are immersed in liquid making it easy to clean. Other fermenters will use ball valves that are very difficult to clean without completely disassembling them.
The Fermentasaurus is produced in Australia after four years of R&D. This fermenter is the world’s first conical PET fermenter that is pressurizable up to 2.4 Bar (34.8 psi) letting you go from fermenting to serving without transfering to another vessel. You also have the option of fermenting under pressure which reduces esters and fusel alcohols allowing you to ferment warmer than you normally would. If you do choose to transfer your beer you can do it under pressure straight into a keg or other vessel with little to no oxygen exposure.”
