Why do hops give off the flavor and aroma that they do? “Because” is not the answer. They vary in Alpha Acids. Beta Acids, Myrcene and a host of other oils and acids. Where they are grown even matters.

This book covers over 110 individual hops and breaks them down piece-by-piece so you can properly craft your next homebrew. It also gives you information on what to expect regarding flavor and aroma.

The Author owns a brewpub (Beaver Brewing Company) and was constantly getting asked about the hops in his beer and how he got it to taste like that.

After months of leafing through sales, brochures, researching hop farmers, and experimenting himself he puts all of that hopped up knowledge into one source in an easy to access manner specifically for the homebrewer in all of us.

Direct from the Brewer Recipe… Russian River Consecution – Includes Actual Consecration Barrel Chunk + Up to $30 Off

russian river consecration homebrew

from MoreBeer… “Beer lovers rejoice! Vinnie from Russian River Brewing Co. has released his Consecration recipe to us, and we’re very proud to be able to offer it to the homebrewing community. Consecration is a sour dark ale aged in a Cabernet Sauvignon barrel. It is aged for 4 to 8 months with currants and brettanomyces. You can look for rich flavors of chocolate truffle, spice, tobacco, currants, and a bit of Cabernet.

What sets this kit apart from any other kit out there, is the fact that we include a chunk of an actual consecration barrel in each one! Whether or not the bacteria from the original beer will form their own colony in your beer is hard to prove right or wrong. Either way, we think it is pretty cool!”

  • This includes an actual chunk of Consecration barrel from the brewery
  • Availability of Consecration Kits at MoreBeer can be touch and go (guessing this has to do with sourcing actual Consecration Barrels, but that’s only a guess).  As such I don’t often see this kit specifically discounted.
  • Consecration is awesome… A note on Consecration:  I’m not big on picking favorites.  I think there are far too many good things to pick favorites on most things.  Having said that, if I were going to write down a list of my favorite beers, Consecration would certainly be towards the top.  This is an amazing beer.
  • Get Free Shipping: Shipping for most items will be free, with a $59 order to addresses in the contiguous US and their Free Shipping Program.

Announcing: K-Pop Kettle Sour Kits from MoreBeer

K-POP Kettle Sour

K-POP Kettle Sour via MoreBeer


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

Thick fog rolls over a dimly lit stage as the volume from an array of loudspeakers steadily rises. You feel the sonic waves emanating from the sound system pass through you, standing up the hair on the back of your neck. Just as the anticipation becomes too much to bear, the darkness is pierced by a spectrum of beam lights and the bass drops. Your eyes squeeze shut and you cover your ears in a trifling attempt to block out the deafening shrieks of 50,000 rabid fans. But it’s no use. Finally, you unclench your eyes and realize that you’re not standing in a sea of concert-goers. And it’s you that’s cheering at the top of your lungs after taking your first sip of K-POP Kettle Sour.

If you’ve never brewed a kettle sour before, this is the perfect introductory kit. The process requires some extra equipment and steps compared to a normal brew day, but it’s worth it! The end result will be a refreshingly light and easy-drinking beer with a delightful tartness that finishes clean. Check out the recipe sheet below and review the instructions before purchasing, and make sure to add both a yeast pitch and a lactobacillus pitch to your order.

This recipe makes a delicious golden sour that is enjoyable without further alteration, but we highly recommend adding dry hops or fruit to make it your own. You can purchase puree from the add-on options above or you can use your own fresh or frozen fruit. We recommend 1 lb of whole fruit per gallon or two 49 oz cans of puree for a 5-gallon batch. Add your chosen fruit when fermentation is complete and allow 5 to 7 days of contact time before packaging.

One of the most exciting and dynamic segments of today’s craft brewing scene , American-brewed sour beers are designed intentionally to be tart and may be inoculated with souring bacteria, fermented with wild yeast or fruit, aged in barrels or blended with younger beer. Craft brewers and homebrewers have adapted traditional European techniques to create some of the world’s most distinctive and experimental styles. This book details the wide array of processes and ingredients in American sour beer production, with actionable advice for each stage of the process. Inspiration, education and practical applications for brewers of all levels are provided by some of the country’s best known sour beer brewers.
