Save On Consecration Kits – Includes Actual Consecration Barrel Chunk – In Stock and On Sale!

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!”

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.  As of this posting, both all grain and extract versions of this kit are in stock.

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.

This brings GigaYeast Double Pitch – GB150 Sour Cherry Funk Blend GB150 down to just $7.64.  Remember promo code SOURPOWER

More Info

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

With 200 Billion Yeast Cells per pack, the Giga Yeast Gold Pitch features nearly double the cell count of other liquid yeast producers. This equals faster starts, better flavors, and more insurance that your beer is going to turn out well. Double the yeast for just a little more money. Smart brewing.

The Sour Cherry Funk Blend
This blend creates an amazing complex, sour beer with fruity cherry esters. Fermenting in the presence of 7-10 IBUs will cause the fermentation to complete much more quickly but will slow the souring — expect to wait 3-4 months for significant souring. Fermenting with zero or less than 5 IBUs will allow souring to happen much faster (within two weeks) but will cause the fermentation to take up to 4 weeks to complete.

More On Cell Count
200 Billion cells per pouch means that with one pounch you can attain the gold standard of pitch count. The ideal pitch rate is .75 million yeast cells for every milliter of wort times degrees plato for nearly any beer you will make. 200 billion yeast cells is also fantastic if you are making 5 gallons of high gravity beer and don’t have time to make a starter. Saves money if you are making 10 gallons and only want to buy one yeast. Getting twice as many cells per pack versus the other brands is also a great idea for mail order shipment, which can be a little tough on liquid yeast.

Description: Blend of 3 Brett strains and Lactic Acid Bacteria

Recommended Temperature Range: 68 F to 80 F

Tasting Notes: Creates a tart beer with cherry esters and complex flavors.
14 days at 71 F in 1060 sweet wort, Ph 5.0

Attenuation: 51%
ABV: 4.1%
Final PH: 3.3 (50X acidification)
1.9% lactic acid W/V

14 days at 71 F in 1060 10 IBU wort, Ph 5.0

Attenuation: 89%
ABV: 7.1%
Final PH: 4.0 (10X acidification)
0.7% lactic acid W/V
Tasting Notes: Creates a tart beer with cherry esters and complex flavors.

* Attenuation was measured after 8 days with Ale yeast at 70˚F and Lager yeast at 50˚F. Medium Gravity is 14˚ – 16˚Plato. High Gravity is 23˚- 25˚Plato.

† The working temperature range represents the range at which fermentation for a given strain produces a typical attenuation- not necessarily the ideal temperature for your particular beer style. As a rule of thumb, start ale yeast fermentation at 68˚ – 72˚F and then lower or raise temp as desired. Lager Yeast are typically fermented at 45˚ – 58˚F. If desired, Lager Yeast can be given a “hot start” at 65-68˚F and then lowered to the primary temperature after active fermentation begins (10-20hrs)

This brings Wyeast’s 3763 Roeselare Belgian Sour Blend down to just $6.37.  Remember promo code SOURPOWER

About from Wyeast: “Our blend of lambic cultures produce beer with a complex, earthy profile and a distinctive pie cherry sourness. Aging up to 18 months is required for a full flavor profile and acidity to develop. Specific proportions of a Belgian style ale strain, a sherry strain, two Brettanomyces strains, a Lactobacillus culture, and a Pediococcus culture produce the desirable flavor components of these beers as they are brewed in West Flanders. Propagation of this culture is not recommended and will result in a change of the proportions of the individual components. This blend will produce a very dry beer due to the super-attenuative nature of the mixed cultures.”
