Christmas Cheers & Hoppy New Beers!

Unhappiness, where's when I was young
And we didn't give a damn
'Cause we were raised
To see life as a fun and take it if we can

Julian C. 5* Review 04/07/18
One of the best
I absolutely love this base malt. It is my Go To as I mainly brew hoppy APAs and IPAs. If I need a bit more character, I will add a bit of Munich to the malt bill. Gladfield is producing some amazing product and I am so glad BeerCo keep stock of their entire range

What more do we need to say here...21 x 5* reviews says it all really...Gladfield American Ale malt is the popular favourite for producing popular hop-forward American Ale style beers for which it beers its name.

Glad you like it! Malt of the Year - 2018! Buy some!

Favourite Hop
These arrived fast and fresh. Citra is my favourite hop for fruity pale ales and IPA's. Add it as a single whirlpool hop addition to 40 IBU in a 1.050 OG pale, then dry hop 2g/L for an epic drop! 
Goes well with mosaic and galaxy for a tropical fruit punch style beer also!

Citra® (BRAND HBC 394) has unique and highly favoured flavour characteristics. As the name suggests, its flavour descriptors include citrus including lime and grapefruit as well as other tropical fruity characters.

Specific aroma descriptors include grapefruit, melon, lime, gooseberry, passion fruit and lychee.
Cheers Citra! Hop to it! Buy Your Hop of 2018!
GY054 Vermont IPA GigaYeast

AU$14.95/Gold Pitch - $2,895/80hL Pro-Pitch
David Verified Buyer 5* Customer Review 04/01/18
I used GY054 in my experimental IPA and have to say the results were outstanding! Very vigorous ferment and added a lovely haze to the beer and an outstanding clarity of flavour from the hops. As always, outstanding service from BeerCo, reinforcing as the best place to do your next brew

GigaYeast Vermont IPA GY054 is from one of the best examples of an East Coast IPA. This GigaYeast attenuates slightly less than NorCal Ale #1 and leaves a beer with more body and a slight fruity ester that is amazing with aromatic hops.

GY054 Vermont IPA GigaYeast is a great choice for high gravity beers and hoppy styles. Broad temperature range and moderate flocculation make this yeast a versatile house strain.
The Haze Craze Rolls On! Get Your Giga On!

Dale J. Verified Buyer 5* Review         21/09/18
First use of the Mashmaster mini mill
Really enjoyed this mill, I had been using the mill at the local home brew store and stuck purchasing what they were selling.  Now I can buy bulk sacks, saving money and for whom I like. 
I tried this mill out and noticed how easy it got thru the grain bill using my pistol drill. The second time I used it I tried out Grain Conditioning, moistening the grain pre-milling. This was added to my Robobrew and I recirculated the wort at 3/4 of the pump capacity. The grain had intact hulls and for the first time I did not add rice hulls. 
I am very happy with this mill in my backyard brewery. Cheers Beerco 

Mill like a pro with the Mill Master Mini Grain Mill from Mash Master - the only geared roller mill on the market. Brew when you want to brew with fresh cracked grains using hardened 420 Stainless Steel Fluted Rollers. Mill Master Geared 2 Roller Grain Mill feature cutting edge design with good old fashioned reliability so you can mill your heart out and brew like a pro with consistent crush with a fully adjustable precision mill.
