Homebrew South Africa Heavy Duty Grain Steeping Bag
Art. nr. B11258
Product Description
This large, heavy duty grain steeping bag will easily handle at least 10kg of wet grains, and fits most 25L buckets, 30L urns or brew pots. Can be used for the brew-in-a-bag method, for steeping specialty grains, or for traditional mashing. The heavy nylon straps are double-stitched and reinforced, and four handles let you call in an assistant to help lift particularly heavy batches of grain out of the brewing vessel.

This grain bag is designed to be strong. While it may be a bit more expensive than other grain bags on the market, this one is what you end up buying after you've tried the cheap ones.

  • Industrial-strength, heavy straps sown into the fabric for heavy load bearing
  • Strong mesh fabric that will not clog
  • Four large handles for two-person operation
  • All seams double stitched and reinforced
  • Top diameter: ca. 35cm
  • Bottom diameter: ca. 30cm
  • Height: ca. 45cm
  • Will fit most 25L buckets or urns for "Brew-In-A-Bag" use

PLEASE NOTE: due to the current limited availability of imported materials, our current batch of grain bags is made not from white but from light brown material. This will NOT affect the character of your beer. (And our fashion consultant notes that the colour of the material combines tastefully with the brewing grains...)

This EDME strain of yeast, which originates from the UK, is one of the oldest dried yeast strains on the market.

  Home Bru'ing By Frank Van Wensveen
Home Bru'ing By Frank Van Wensveen
Art. nr. B02296
Product Description
Brewing your own beer at home is a great hobby that is quickly gaining popularity in South Africa. However, most brewing literature and recipes (including those found in abundance on the World Wide Web) have been written by American authors, for an American audience, assuming that American grains, adjuncts, hops and yeasts will be used to brew American interpretations of the various beer styles.

This book focuses primarily on the South African home brewer. It explains the basics as well as the more advanced aspects of brewing, based on what the average South African home brewer has available to start out with. Where necessary, specific references to the South African market for brewing ingredients and accessories have been included. Whenever calculations are being discussed, the formulas have been adjusted for metric units, i.e. they use kilograms and litres rather than pounds, ounces, gallons and such.

Combining the practical basics of home brewing with just enough of the principles behind them, this book should give the beginning home brewer not only a basic set of brewing skills but also the essential background required to understand why things need to be done in this way or that. This makes this book especially suited for use as a teaching aid for brewing courses and the like.

Homebrew South Africa Saint Affrique Stovetop Beer Kit - Saison
Homebrew South Africa Saint Affrique Stovetop Beer Kit - Saison
Art. nr. B11407
Product Description
Saint-Affrique is a typical Saison: an artisanal beer pale in colour, aromatic, refreshing, pleasantly dry and with a moderate bitterness, and seasoned with coriander for extra complexity. It features a light body, a soft malt character with a slightly earthy undertone on the palate; restrained fruity accents reminiscent of citrus; floral hops; subtle spicy notes of pepper and cardamom; a respectable but not overwhelming alcohol content and a dry finish. Originally a farmhouse ale, this highly attenuated beer was typically brewed during the harvesting season in Wallonia (the French-spoken southern part of Belgium) and in France, but has since become a mainstream style with a higher alcohol content and a unique, complex character.

In addition to the contents of this beer kit, you will need to add 250 grams of white or light brown granulated table sugar.
