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

Finalist, BEST BOOK, International Association of Culinary Professionals
With fantastical narratives, home-brewing instructions, and original craft cocktail recipes, Mead is the ultimate exploration of the resurgent alcoholic beverage that is nearly as old as time itself.

Beloved by figures as diverse as Queen Elizabeth and Thor, the Vikings and the Greek gods, mead is one of history’s most storied beverages. But this mixture of fermented honey isn’t just a relic of bygone eras — it’s experiencing a cultural renaissance, taking pride of place in trendy cocktail bars and craft breweries across the country. Equal parts quirky historical narrative, DIY manual, and cocktail guide, Mead is a spirited look at the drink that’s been with us even longer than wine.

Mead gives readers a fascinating introduction to the rich story of this beloved beverage — from its humble beginnings to its newfound popularity, along with its vital importance in seven historic kingdoms: Greece, Rome, the Vikings, Poland, Ethiopia, England, and Russia. Pairing a quirky, historical narrative with real practical advice, beverage expert Fred Minnick guides readers through making 25 different types of mead, as well as more than 50 cocktails, with recipes from some of the country’s most sought-after mixologists.

Announcing: White Labs WLP600 Kombucha SCOBY

WLP600 Kombucha SCOBY - White Labs Yeast

WLP600 Kombucha SCOBY – White Labs Yeast from MoreBeer

More Info

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

Brewers make the tea but SCOBY makes the booch! WLP600 Kombucha SCOBY, a symbiotic culture of bacteria and yeast that is used for fermenting sweet tea into kombucha. White Labs’ culture is free of food pathogens and has been genetically identified to know specially what yeast and bacteria are involved in the fermentation of kombucha. This SCOBY has medium acetic acid production and low alcohol production.

One SCOBY will make 1 to 5 gallons of kombucha, but the White Labs pouch only contains enough starter liquid for 1 gallon of kombucha. Typically, 1 to 2 cups of starter liquid is recommended per 1 gallon batch. Previously made kombucha or store bought unflavored, unfiltered kombucha will work as starter liquid.

With proper care and storage, you can reuse your cuture for multiple batches. For short term storage, a clean, food grade container placed somewhere out of direct sunlight and left undisturbed is suggested. If you will not be using your SCOBY for an extended period of time, place it in a clean, food grade container in the refrigerator for up to 3 months. Feeding (adding new tea) as needed to keep the SCOBY from drying out.

Bacteria:

  • Bacillus licheniformis (99%)
  • Bacillus cereus (99%)**
  • Bacillus pumillus/aerophilus/safensis/altitudinis (99%)*
  • Acetobacter tropicalis (99%)
  • Bacillus aerophilus (96%)
  • Bacillus aryabhattai (98%)
  • Gluconacetobacter saccharivorans (99%)
  • Micrococcus sp. (98%)
  • Gluconacetobacter rhaeticus (98%)
  • Paenibacillus taichungensis (97%)
  • Bacillus subtilis (99%)

Yeast:

  • Brettanomyces bruxellensis (99%)
  • Saccharomyces cerevisiae (92%)
  • Zygosaccharomyces sp. (97%)
  • Candida sp. (97%)

*Multiple organisms are listed as they are unable to be differentiated from its 16s ribosomal DNA sequence.
**This is a non-pathogenic species that is commonly found in probiotics.

Bubbles is a fabulous seasonal yeast strain from Imperial Organic Yeast, arriving just in time for the harvests of fall! It is used in fruit and honey fermentation, and as such is the perfect yeast to use when making cider or mead. However, it can be used in other fruit juice fermentation as well. When fermenting at the lower end of its temperature range, Bubbles can create a clean flavor profile that allows fruit and honey notes to shine through! Cultivated on a purely gluten-free medium, this is a great strain to use in gluten-free cider and meadmaking!
