Happy Hoppyween! This week’s hop is all about the Warrior. What makes this hop so scary is the clean taste and bitterness it adds to any beer. What’s even scarier is the high alpha acid level this hop has, just take a look!

Yeast can add dramatic flavors to your beer. So when deciding between dry and liquid yeast, it’s important to know exactly what you’re brewing and how you want it to turn out.  It was once believed that liquid yeast was the better option, but with advancements in technology, dry yeast is just as sterile, effective, and produces phenomenal beers.

Posted by Will Ferguson on 10/4/2017
Strongly debated and never resolved. Which is better, a copper or stainless steel immersion chiller? Most of the equipment made by large brewing distributors live and die by their stainless steel products. So to an inexperienced brewer, stainless steel is the obvious choice. We’ve compiled a short list of pro’s and con’s of the two. You can be the judge.

DME vs. LME

Posted by Will Ferguson on 10/2/2017 to Tools & Calculators

What’s the difference between LME (liquid malt extract) and DME (dried malt extract)? Both LME and DME undergo similar processes. Each are created into wort through a typical mash and then dehydrated. LME is dehydrated to about 20% water, whereas DME is dehydrated to 2% water. The question of, “which one is better” is not an easy one, it all depends on what you’re looking for and how it’s going to be used.
