More Info

From the product description, check product page for current description, price and availability:

  • US ETL Certificate Listed and Warranty. ITC-608T thermostat temperature and humidity controller is ETL listed, and rigorously tested for quality control and safety. The unit itself has 2 years warranty. (The temperature and humidity sensor have 1 year warranty.)
  • Three in one Multifunctional Temperature and Humidity Control Mode with Dual Relay Output. ITC-608T can work as a temperature controller, a humidity controller, a temperature and humidity controller. First, only plug temperature sensor with cooling and heating equipment. Second, only plug humidity sensor with humidifier and dehumidifier equipment. Third, plug both temperature and humidity sensor with cooling/heating and humidifier/dehumidifier equipment.
  • Supporting calibration, compressor delay and saving reset setting values. Centigrade or Fahrenheit degree display, easy to set, PV and SV dual display windows. And with compressor delay for protecting cooling device. ITC-608T can save the original setting values in case accidentally power-off.
  • More power up to 1800W. Temperature control range is -40-212°F(-40-100℃), humidity display range is 5 -99.0%RH. Max Loading: 120V 15A 1800W. Temperature senor is waterproof while humidity sensor is not.
  • Multifunctional usage. Temperature and humidity controller ITC-608T can be used in home brewing (refrigerator), fermenting, Greenhouse, terrarium, reptile, planting (mushroom), meat storage and cooking.

“Temp and humidity controller ITC-608T has certificate of ETL (US and Canada approved). The product will be safer when using. ITC-608T has multifunctional control mode. It can control both temp and humidity at the same time. (Plug both temp and humidity sensor). Or control single temp and has 12 different time stage periods for temp control mode. Or only control humidity with plug humidity sensor. This unit supports both F and C degree, compress delay, calibration and reset setting values saving. Heating/Cooling differential function could be set separately for refrigeration and heating to protect temp controller from violent change. Same as humidity control.”

 

This is a digital dual stage pre-wired temp control with 12 timers and a humidity sensor and controller. The temp controller part of this is pretty straightforward.  As homebrewers we’d usually use that with a heating and/or cooling device for fermentation temp control or as part of a kegerator.

Dual stage means this can control both a heating and cooling device.  Alternatively, it can control a heating or a cooling device.  This controller displays in Fahrenheit and Centigrade.

I would say that 1,800 Watt is a higher capacity than many of the homebrew controllers out there.

The humidity part could be handy for judging whether your Eva Dry (or similar) needs recharged.  See: Damp Kegerator? Fix Kegerator Condensation.  I suppose you could also control an appropriate electronic dehumidifier.  It’s my understanding that if you plug in the optional humidity sensor the temperature controller portion is limited to one stage – heating or cooling.  That may not be a bad thing as the only scenario I think this could be helpful in the homebrew context is a kegerator and most of the time you’ll probably only use one stage (cooling) anyway for a kegerator.  My guess is that most homebrewers will not have a need for the humidity feature of this controller.

Note: This product has multiple variations – choose between multiple sensor options (temperature and/or humidity).  I would guess that most homebrewers would be interested in the temperature sensor only version and that is the version that’s linked below.

Stacking Deals: TILT Bluetooth Hydrometer – $124.60 AND Free Shipping + Hands on Review +Works w/Brewfather

More Info

From the product description, check product page for current description, price and availability:

Designed specifically for homebrewers, the Tilt Hydrometer & Thermometer monitors both the specific gravity and temperature of your batch while its fermenting without having to open your fermenter and waste your beer for test samples, allowing you to brew more consistent batches of beer and makes each batch much easier to track. Using the Tilt App (Available Here!) you can instantly check on your batches readings using an Apple iPhone/iPad or Android smartphone/tablet. Designed with a high precision temperature sensor and accelerometer, the Tilt monitors your batch with a fine degree of control. The specific gravity is accurate +/- 0.002 within the Tilt’s 0.990 to 1.120 range. The included thermometer is accurate +/- 1 degree F. The increased transmission power of the Tilt gives it better reception and range, allowing it to send data through large, thick-walled fermenters and it will work with most Bluetooth 4.0+ devices. The Tilt was also built with efficiency in mind. The reduced power consumption allows to to use you Tilt batch after batch with the same battery. Each Tilt comes calibrated and ready to use with an included battery. Battery life is 12-24 months depending on usage. Easy to use, the Tilt makes a great addition to any brewhouse. Simply download the app, sanitize your Tilt, drop it into your fermenter, and start taking readings!

The Tilt Hydrometers comes in a rainbow of colors to brighten up your brew supplies, but these colors are not just cosmetic. Use a different color Tilt to monitor multiple batches of beer at the same time. The Tilt App will not read multiple hydrometers of the same color.

Lallemand New England East Coast Yeast, 11 Gram – Dry version of Conan Strain – $6.54 + free shipping

Lallemand New England East Coast American Ale Yeast 11 Gram

Lallemand New England East Coast American Ale Yeast 11 Gram via Label Peelers

More Info

From the product description, check product page for current description, price and availability:

Lallemand New England East Coast American Ale Yeast 11 Gram
Product Description
LalBrewTM New England is an ale strain selected specifically for its ability to produce a unique fruit-forward ester profile desired in East Coast styles of beer. A typical fermentation with LalBrewTM New England will produce tropical and fruity esters, notably stone fruits like peach. Through expression of a β-glucosidase enzyme, LalBrewTM New England can promote hop biotransformation and accentuate hop flavor and aroma. LalBrewTM New England exhibits medium to high attenuation with medium flocculation, making it a perfect choice for East Coast style ales.

Brewing Properties:

In Lallemand’s Standard Conditions Wort at 20°C (68°F) LalBrewTM New England yeast exhibits: Fermentation that can be completed in 7 days, a bit slower than most ale strains. This is perfectly characteristic of this strain. Medium to High Attenuation and Medium Flocculation Fruity aroma, notably tropical and stone fruit The optimal temperature range for LalBrewTM New England yeast when producing traditional styles is 15°C (59°F)* to 22°C (72°F) Lag phase can be longer compared to other ale strains, ranging from 18-36 hours Lag phase, total fermentation time, attenuation and flavor are dependent on pitch rate, yeast handling, fermentation temperature and nutritional quality of the wort. If you have questions please do not hesitate to contact us at brewing@lallemand.com

Usage:

The pitch rate will affect the fermentation performance and flavor of the beer. For LalBrewTM New England yeast, a pitch rate of 100g per hL of wort is sufficient to achieve a minimum of 1 million viable cells/mL. More stressful fermentations such as high gravity, high adjunct or high acidity may require higher pitch rates and additional nutrients to ensure a healthy fermentation. Find your exact recommended pitching rate with our Pitch Rate Calculator in our Brewers Corner at www.lallemandbrewing.com LalBrewTM New England may be re-pitched just as you would any other type of yeast according to your brewery’s SOP for yeast handling. Wort aeration is required when re-pitching dry yeast.

Storage:

LalBrewTM New England yeast should be stored in a vacuum sealed package in dry conditions below 4C° (39°F). LalBrewTM New England will rapidly lose activity after exposure to air. Do not use 500g or 11g packs that have lost vacuum. Opened packs must be re-sealed, stored in dry conditions below 4°C (39°F), and used within 3 days. If the opened package is re-sealed under vacuum immediately after opening, yeast can be stored below 4C° (39°F) until the indicated expiry date. Do not use yeast after expiry date printed on the pack. Performance is guaranteed when stored correctly and before the expiry date. However, Lallemand dry brewing yeast is very robust and some strains can tolerate brief periods under sub-optimal conditions. If you have questions, do not hesitate to contact us. We have a team of technical representatives happy to help and guide you in your fermentation journey

Rehydration:

Rehydration of LalBrewTM New England in sterile water is recommended prior to pitching into wort in order to reduce stress on the cell as it transitions from dry to liquid form. For many fermentations, this stress is not significant enough to affect fermentation performance and flavor, so good results may also be achieved when pitching dry yeast directly into wort. We highly recommend rehydration in harsher fermentation conditions such as high gravity or sour wort where the added stress of dry-pitching is more likely to have a greater impact on the finished beer. Use of a rehydration nutrient such as Go-Ferm Protect Evolution has been shown to improve fermentation performance for difficult fermentations. Rehydration guidelines are quite simple and present a much lower risk of contamination than a starter, which is unnecessary when using the recommended pitch rate of dried active yeast. Sprinkle the yeast on the surface of 10 times its weight in clean, sterilized water at 30-35°C (86-95F). Do not use wort, or distilled or reverse osmosis water, as loss in viability may result. Stir gently, leave undisturbed for 15 minutes, then stir to suspend yeast completely. Leave it to rest for 5 more minutes at 30-35°C. Without delay, adjust the temperature to that of the wort by mixing aliquots of wort with the rehydrated yeast. Wort should be added in 5 minute intervals and taking care not to lower the temperature by more than 10°C at a time. Temperature shock of >10°C will cause formation of petite mutants leading to extended or incomplete fermentation and possible formation of undesirable flavors. Do not allow attemperation to be carried out by natural heat loss. This will take too long and could result in loss of viability or vitality. Inoculate without delay into cooled wort in the fermenter. LalBrewTM New England yeast has been conditioned to survive rehydration. The yeast contains an adequate reserve of carbohydrates and unsaturated fatty acids to achieve active growth. It is unnecessary to aerate wort upon first use.

 

I’m happy to announce that this is finally available to homebrewers.  A dry version of Conan, the strain used by Alchemist Brewing for their wildly popular Heady Topper, has been available for a while. but only in expensive 500g bricks.  With this announcement 11 gram homebrew pitches are now available.  As of this posting, Label Peelers has this on sale for $6.54.  Shipping is also free to addresses in the contiguous US.  Check Label Peelers for current availability and pricing.
