Announcing: HAZY IPA Collab with Pax Verum Brewing Co

From Great Fermentations: A mix of wheat, malted oats and chit malt lay over the base malt to give that thick haze. The hop flavors and aromas are brought to life by Crystal, Chinook Comet and Michigan Copper hops; not a combo you would expect, but when grown in the state of Indiana, these hops are super J-U-I-C-Y!

Thirteen and Thirty-Two Hazy IPA!

Malt from Sugar Creek is always awesome. For this particular beer, we focused on a combination of Chit, malted oats, and wheat to bump up the haze factor by 11x.

Crystal, comet, chinook, and copper are not your typical hazy IPA hops. But, when these hops are grown in Indiana, they transform and offer a totally different experience than their west coast brethren.

PAX VERUM // Lapel, IN.
The team at Pax Verum has been brewing great beer since 2018, and their five-year anniversary is coming up at the end of April! This was a special collab for us, as we got to work with the head brewer at Pax, and former Great Fermentations employee, Colt Carpenter. He was great to work with and really helped to nail down the perfect combo of malt and hops for the ultimate juicy haze.

Announcing: CellarScience BAJA Dry Yeast

cellarscience baja dry yeast

If you’re looking for a cold fermenting yeast with a neutral character, BAJA from CellarScience is the perfect candidate. Originally developed and popularized by the Modelo Group, this Mexican yeast strain will produce clean, crisp lagers and finishes dry. Allowing for the balanced expression of malt and hops, BAJA will become your go-to yeast for fermenting Mexican-style light lagers, dark lagers, and cold IPAs.

Every batch is PCR tested to ensure contamination free yeast.

Two sachets are enough to treat a 5–6 gallon batch. When calculating for larger batches, use at a rate of 2.5–4 grams per gallon of wort. We recommend rounding up by one full sachet rather than measuring out the yeast exactly.

Direct Pitch or Rehydrate:
BAJA yeast can be direct pitched with great results by sprinkling it onto the surface of the wort in your fermenter. However, proper hydration helps ensure a healthy fermentation and is especially recommended for beer with a starting gravity above 15°P (1.061 SG). To hydrate yeast, first sanitize the yeast pack and a pair of scissors. Boil tap water to sterilize and then cool to 85-95°F (29-35°C). Use 10 grams (0.35 oz) of water per gram of yeast. Sprinkle the yeast onto the water, allow the slurry to stand undisturbed for 20 minutes, and then swirl. Use small amounts of wort to adjust the temperature of the slurry to within 10°F (6°C) of the wort temp before pitching. Ferment between 50-57°F (10-14°C).

Optimum Fermentation Temp: 50-57°F
Flocculation: Medium-high
Alcohol Tolerance: 9% ABV
Attenuation: 78-85%
Similar Strains: WLP940
Gluten-freeCellarScience Yeast:

For years liquid yeast has been sold as the higher quality option but times are changing. Yes, 20 years ago dry yeast was made by bread yeast producers and the quality was not as good as liquid yeast. CellarScience is helping to flip that script with the release of five high quality dry yeasts. Cell count and viability is usually higher than commercial liquid yeast pitches, which vary from pouch to pouch and don’t ship well. CellarScience yeast can be pitched directly in most batches of wort, offering significant time savings. Yeast that is quick and easy to use, high quality, and available at a reasonable cost adds up to a tremendous value. Quality yeast that doesn’t “break the brink”.

Announcing: OVERSIZE Food Grade Silicone Keg Dip Tube O-Rings – for outliers & problem kegs

Keg Dip Tube O-Rings - Food Safe Silicone

From Valuebrew:

Announcing Over-size Dip Tube O-Rings! We’ve The vast majority of kegs work well with out standard sized dip tube o-rings available in both food grade silicone and food grade EPDM. However a small number of kegs require a larger dip tube o-ring. Beyond that some kegs are dinged up and leak using the standard size even when they shouldn’t. These are slightly larger than our standard dip tubes (.55 OD vs .50 OD) and made from the same food grade silicone we use for the standard size.

Keg Dip Tube O-Rings – Food Safe Silicone – OVERSIZE

More About Food Safe Materials:  For whatever reason, it’s difficult to find food safe keg o-rings.  Maybe some of the o-rings that are available are food safe, but very few are actually labeled as such.

The fact is we’re putting beer (food) in our kegs and we should be using food safe materials whenever we can.  More Info: Food Safe Replacement Keg O-Rings

Finally a food safe option!  Valuebrew has a selection of silicone food grade o-rings.  They also have replacement universal poppet o-rings and internal QD o-rings, also food grade.
