Crisp Wheat Malt has a touch of acidity, is gentle, refreshing and creamy.

In brewing, Crisp Wheat Malt can be used as the base malt at around 55% inclusion for wheat beers.  Usage guidance is up to 50%, watch your run off as it is huskless.  Higher rates might require addition of rice hulls to aid lautering and avoid a stuck Mash.  Common beer styles showcasing Wheat Malt include Hefeweizen, Wheat beers, Witbier and the now ubiquous Hazy IPA. Wheat is also a welcome top note and contributor to the newly emerging "Pacific Ale" style downunder and can really help your Pale Ales or other beers shine with low addition rates around 5-10% contributing to head retention and mouthfeel.

In distilling, Wheat is often the lead contributor in a neutral grain spirit like Vodka and can impart front-of-palate sweetness to an American Style Whiskey or Bourbon.

Give Crisp Wheat Malt a go in your next Brew and/or Distillation happy! Available in the following pack sizes and prices:
  • 5 Kg Bag $18.95 inc GST
  • 25 Kg Sack $74.95 (SAVE 20% OFF 5Kg Price)

El Dorado® US Hops | The Tropical Hop!

El Dorado® is a US hop variety that was released in 2010 by CLS Farms in Yakima, WA. Used in almost all beer styles, El Dorado® elicits aromas and flavors of tropical fruitiness like stone fruit, hard candy, pear, watermelon, and pineapple. El Dorado® is a dual-purpose hop due to its high alpha acids, so brewers can use them throughout the brewing process. It provides a smooth and balanced bitterness in kettle and whirlpool additions. Brewers note tropical and candy-like flavors when using El Dorado® in late additions like dry-hopping.

OYL-042 Belgian Saison II Omega Yeast

OYL-042 Belgian Saison II is earthy, spicy, peppery, tart and dry, with tropical fruit and citrus at warm fermentation temperatures. A perfect strain for farmhouse ales and saisons. Works best when pitching at lover temperatures 21°C (70°F), and free-rising from there.  

This strain tests positive for the STA1 gene, an indicator of Saccharomyces cerevisiae var. diastaticus. This strain may have the ability to metabolize dextrins over time, resulting in higher than expected attenuation.
