  • Foam Control FermCap S 1 ..

    Foam Control FermCap S 1 ..

    $4.00

    Eliminate the head on fermenting beer and brew a larger quantity in your existing fermenter. Foam control – also known as FermCapS – does not affect the head on your finished beer, but can actually increase the head by retaining head-forming compounds that would have been blown off during ferment. It will settle-out of beer before bottling or kegging as it is actually absorbed onto the surface of the yeast cells and filter media. Add two drops per gallon at start of fermentation. Comes packaged in a very handy eye dropper bottle that allows for easy use. Good for about 50 batches of beer.

  • Wyeast Yeast Nutrient ..

    Wyeast Yeast Nutrient ..

    $2.99

    Wyeast nutrient blend for yeast propagation and brewing. A blend of vitamins, minerals, inorganic nitrogen, organic nitrogen, zinc, phosphates and other trace elements that will benefit yeast growth and fermentation. Additional nutrients are most valuable during yeast propagation and sluggish or stuck fermentations. Supplementing with nutrients will reduce lag time, improve viability and provide consistent attenuation rates.

    Usage Rate: 1/2 tsp (2.2 Grams) per 5 gallons of wort. Dissolve Wyeast Nutrient in warm water.
    Usage instructions: Add solution to kettle 10-15 minutes prior to the end of boil.

    (We do not recommend the use of an electric element with these flasks. If this cannot be avoided, we recommend using a larger pot as a hot water bath on the stove.)

    In the lab world, these flasks are known as “Student Grade”. A great flask for making yeast starters!(Student grade is not the highest grade flasks and will have minor defects)

    Yeast Starter Kit (500 ml..

    $9.38

    500ml Erlenmeyer flask, 1/2lb light dried malt extract & 1oz Fermaid K (Yeast Nutrient). This starter kit is for growing liquid yeast starters. The idea is that the starter acts as a mini batch of beer where the yeast cells replicate before being pitched into your 5 gallon batch. More yeast means fermentation starts faster. The bacteria and wild yeast that got into your beer during the transfer from kettle to fermenter have less chance of creating a negative flavor impact upon your beer.

  • Servomyces Yeast Nutrient..

    Servomyces Yeast Nutrient..

    $12.99

    Add servomyces to your beer to increase yeast health because healthy yeast make better tasting beer. Other benefits include a decrease in fermentation time and increased alcohol potential. Servomyces stimulates the uptake of maltose which results in drier beer with higher alcohol yields. It is made by saturating beer yeast with zinc and then drying it. Zinc is a missing nutrient in wort and is more readily absorbed from dead yeast cells than by adding it directly as a mineral. Originally available only to professional brewers, this wonderful yeast nutrient is now to the homebrewing community, thanks to White Labs and Lallemand.

    While it is not a cure-all pill for your brew, it offers the serious home brewer an easy, effective way to help ensure yeast health. Servomyces was developed in Germany at the Weihenstephan brewing school and the Munich University, so of course it conforms to the German Purity Law! Contains 6 capsules good for 5 gallons of wort each. Add Servo in the last 10 minutes of the boil. If your ferment does not require a boil ( as in a mead), open the capsule and add the Servomyces directly.

  • White Labs Yeast Nutrient..

    White Labs Yeast Nutrient..

    $7.99

    White Labs Yeast Nutrient is used to help increase the health of your yeast. Healthy yeast is vital for a clean and complete fermentation, which will also help to prevent off-flavors in your homebrew. Contains diammonium phosphate, essential vitamins and co-factors, nitrogen (amino acids, proteins, and peptides) and minerals. The White Labs Yeast Nutrient provides an effective boost for first and/or late generation yeast slurry. If grist is not 100% malt, then yeast nutrient can help make up for lack of nutrients.

    For commercial use, each vial contains 1.0 oz, enough for 5bbls. For homebrew use, each 1/2 tsp. from the vial is good for 5 gallons.
