    Hey Aussie Homebrewers,
    Been a while since we posted some new arrivals for all you on the Search for Satisfaction!

    Here is a few newbies that might make your froth at the edges of your mash tun!

    https://www.beerco.com.au/product/hops/loral-us-hops/ available in 100g 250g 500g and 1Kg for the maniacs out there!

    Loral ™ US Hops

    $9.96–$73.15 Incl. GST


    Loral ™ HBC 291 has a noble heritage that straddles the fence between old and new world hop aromatics. Loral ™ has the ability to complement all beer styles, making it a very versatile hop in the brewery. Loral™ has been described as pleasant with floral, citrus, peppery and some dark fruit characteristics. Great for distinctive IPAs and pale ales but perfect for sessionable and lager-style beers.
    For those too tired to think about what to brew we will pick n pack n crack (reluctantly if we have to and you don't already have your own mill) a fresh ready to brew All Grain Recipe Kit - check out the latest which we would like to see you brew 6+ months before Oktoberfest! Prost!

    Oktoberfest – Märzen – BeerCo Recipe Kit

    $49.50–$55.00 Incl. GST


    For this BeerCo Oktoberfest – Märzen- Recipe Kit we use a layered malt bill for depth and flavour and a moderate hopping regime with traditional noble Hallertau Mittelfruh German Hops to hit the upper reaches of the style target at 28 IBU. We trust this will help you celebrate the change of seasons in style with a brew to style – Prost!
    Choose between Dry SAflager S-23 or a wicked new GigaYeast!
    Along came a Cider! for you Appleheads out there...

    Fermentis Safcider Yeast
    Fermentis Safcider selected from the champagne region a fructophilic strain perfectly suited for all cider types even under difficult fermentation condition. Available in 6 gram sachets suitable for 20-30 litres of cider at fermentation temperatures of 10 – 20° C.

    Who doesn't love how easy it is to make Mead! If you have a honey you want to charm and keep onside for brew days jump on Mead and give it a try. A great recipe up on the blog here:

    Honey Pie – would you like some meth? Metheglin? Mead darling :)

    and some Yeast is the shop now!

    M05 Mead Mangrove Jack’s Yeast
    M05 Mead Mangrove Jack’s Yeast is a high ester-producing strain conferring fresh, floral esters, especially when fermented cool. M05 Mead yeast has high alcohol tolerance and ferments well over a wide temperature range. Suitable for all styles of mead.

    oh yeah and if you want to brew some Pacific Ale clones for summer - we have some Galaxy but you better get in quick it will fly out the door!


    Galaxy ™ AU Hops $7.95$31.94 Incl. GST 100g 250g 500g
    Highly versatile, Galaxy™ can be used in almost any style of beer. Australia’s most internationally recognised flavour hop Galaxy ™ reputation comes from the distinctly identifiable characters the hop brings to beer. Flavour and aroma can range from passionfruit and peach to clean citrus aromas which are more intense the later the addition.



    Plenty of Hops - growing by the day - http://www.beerco.com.au/product-category/hops/

    Hey Aussie Homebrewers,

    Movembeer Brews News is out link to it here: http://eepurl.com/cmfvIT or here: www.beerco.com.au/blog/movembeer or read on...






    Brew with a Mo-Bro or Mo-Sis this Movembeer
    [​IMG]Alleviating the world of beer poverty one brew at a time is a life's work. There are many social benefits of brewing and sharing a beer with mates is one of life's greatest pleasures. As life speeds up for us, change and technology amps up, some of your great mates might feel a little lost at times and out of sorts. We encourage you this Movembeer to reach out to a mate you haven't seen in a while or are worried about and invite him or her over to brew with you or share a brew with you. There are lots of things we can do during Movembeer from growing a Mo, to raising funds for men's health and here at BeerCo Home Brewery we are going to focus on inviting friends to brew or share a beer and spend some quality time over the mash tun or with an ale and pizza at the end of a busy brew day.





    Malt of Month - Gladfield Supernova
    [​IMG]
    Gladfield Malt latest release Supernova is here! Supernova is ideal as a replacement for traditional crystal malts, to change the flavour characteristics and reduce a beer's residual sweet taste.

    Supernova has a typical colour of 114 EBC with a malty and caramel finish. Great in Pale Ales (5-10%) for a caramel flavour that will not overpower your hops. Supernova also adds rich, malty depth to Amber Ales (<25%) and can accentuate a Porter (<15%).

    We recommend you look to use Supernova judiciously in your grist around 10-25% and see where the flavour takes you before you dial it up!

    Gladfield Supernova Malt is made using Canterbury winger barley, taken through germination before roasting to develop flavour and colour and malt depth to your beer.

    Supernova is a roasted malt designed for nutty, caramel flavour and a dark glorious colour.





    Hop of Month - Loral™ US Hops (HBC 291)
    [​IMG]
    Loral™ formerly known as HBC 291, provides a more traditional yet unique hop character, providing the floral and herbal notes one would expect from a fine noble aroma hop. Loral ™ mother is the U.S. developed aroma variety Glacier; the grandmother being the long established European noble aroma variety known as Tardif de Bourgogne originating in the Bourgogne region of Eastern France. The father is a son of the U.S. developed Nugget variety.

    Loral™ is characterized by having numerous small, dense cones with moderate alpha acids. The variety was first commercialized in 2016 with notable early craft beer uses including
    Aroma:
    • Very pleasant, floral, peppery, lemon-citrus and dark fruit.
    • A touch of sweet fruity aroma rounds out this well-balanced hop.
    • In beer, the floral notes are accentuated yet complemented nicely by fruity and citrus with just a hint of herbal.
    Style Guidance:
    • IPA
    • Pale Ales
    • Lagers




    Yeast of the Month - GY054 Vermont IPA GigaYeast
    [​IMG]





    Beer of the Month - Supernova Amber Ale

    Malt of Month – Gladfield Lager Light Malt
    [​IMG][​IMG]
    Author: Doug Michael | Co-Owner and Manager at Gladfield Malt
    Editor: Dermott Dowling | Beerly Managing Director at BeerCo
    Gladfield Lager Light Malt is made for exactly what the name suggests – light colour lager beers. You really appreciate this malt and beer style on a hot summer’s day after working hard doing whatever it is you do for a living. When you knock the top off a homebrew or craft beer made from Gladfield Lager Light Malt and pour it into a glass, you see the beautiful light straw colour beer with creamy head, down the hatch it goes and the first one does not even touch the sides. Wow! It looks and tastes so drinkable in the glass that the second one is down as quick as the first. Lets face it, at this time of year when the sun is out it is about quenching your thirst with quality light sessionable beers that look as refreshing they taste.
    Gladfield Malt designed this Light Lager Malt in their our own pilot brewery so they could have plenty of fresh cold beer on tap during harvest time and they did not want it to look like or feel like the consistency of an oil change from an Angular gear box. Pilsners and Light Lagers brewed with Gladfield Light Lager Malt worked so well at washing the barley awns from the back of the throat that the header drivers and truck drivers were queuing up from miles away to work at Gladfield Farm & Malting. They always seemed to turn up at sunset anyway and hang around expecting to be invited to join the team @beiroclock!
    Gladfield Malt called the malt Lager Light “the natural agent that stimulates sight and makes things visible”. Light Craft Lager was not the only thing it stimulated. Brewers quickly recognized Gladfield Lager Light Malt as a must for this time of year and it has certainly become highly visible in the racks around leading craft breweries across Australia and New Zealand at this time of the year.
    Gladfield Lager Light Malt is made from only the finest 2 row high quality Canterbury malting barley with a mid to high protein range and it is well modified giving good fermentability for a refreshing dry finish with a hint of malt character. Gladfield Lager Light Malt has a typical colour range of 2.3 – 2.9 EBC. Light but not too light if you know what we mean!
    Gladfield Lager Light Malt is subject to a gentler kilning cycle so that a lower colour is produced however it is still low in DMS precursors unlike some European malts which are designed specifically for DMS beers (a character trait of a European style lager but commonly seen as a fault in Australian or Kiwi style Lagers and Pilsners).
    Gladfield Lager Light Malt is so versatile you can use it up to 100% of the grist or else you can add it too any beer at any rate you want to reduce colour. A lot of brewers use it alongside Gladfield Wheat Malt to produce a delicate bright clean malt profile wheat beer, when a low colour formation is required.
    You can also use it with up to 20% Gladfield Toffee Malt to make a perfectly malt balanced light coloured IPA.
    Gladfield Lager Light Malt is available in the BeerCo Shop in two pack sizes:
    • 5 Kg Bags at $14.95 Incl. GST
    • 25 Kg Sacks at $59.95 Incl. GST (SAVE 20% – BULK UP AND SAVE!)




    Hop of Month – Pacifica NZ Hops
    [​IMG][​IMG]
    Author: Doug Donelan | CEO at New Zealand Hops
    Editor: Dermott Dowling | Beerly Managing Director at BeerCo
    Pacifica is a New Zealand bred triploid variety developed with parentage from the noble German variety Hallertauer Mittelfrüher. Originally selected for its high weight of oil, citrus marmalade aroma and finesse when employed as a single hop in traditional German style lagers such as German Pilsner and Munich Helles.
    Pacifica is now commonly used by Craft brewers to achieve orange citrus characters in New World pale ales from single hopping right through to dry hopping.
    Pacifica also matches up well when used in conjunction with other New Zealand citrus driven varieties such as Motueka and Moutere (formerly known as Brooklyn).
    Pacifica is a class act NZ Hop.
    Pacifica brings something of a blend of new and old-world taste descriptors to the brewers’ table. Orange marmalade aptly describes the citrus aroma notes achieved through late addition. Bittering quality is such that early kettle additions net a soft yet solid finish even in highly bittered beers.

    Style Guidance:
    • Lagers
    • Pale Ales
    • Pilsners
    Pack Sizes Available:
    Pacifica NZ Hops are available now to buy in the BeerCo Shop in a variety of sizes for small batches to BIG BREWS!




    Yeast of the Month – GY011 British Ale #1 GigaYeast
    [​IMG]
    Author: Amelia McCullough | Office Manager at GigaYeast
    Editor: Dermott Dowling | Beerly Managing Director at BeerCo
    GigaYeast British Ale #1 GY011 is a versatile house strain from a traditional UK brewery. Strong attenuation over a broad temperature range and low esters make this yeast perfect for a wide variety of styles.
    GigaYeast GY011 British Ale #1 is a strong flocculator that creates a clear beer.
    • Attenuation Medium Gravity* 75% – 79%
    • Attenuation High Gravity* 73% – 75% (9.0% – 9.4% ABV)
    • Temperature Range†: 18˚C – 25˚C (64˚F – 77˚F)
    • Flocculation: High
    Representative Styles:
    • Amber Ale
    • Barley Wine
    • British Ales
    • English Bitter
    • India Pale Ale
    • Pale Ale
    • Scotch Ale
    • Stout
    * Medium Gravity is 14˚ – 16˚ Plato. High Gravity is 23˚- 25˚Plato.
    The working temperature range represents the range at which fermentation for a given strain produces a typical attenuation- not necessarily the ideal temperature for your particular beer style. As a rule of thumb, start ale yeast fermentation at 68˚ – 72˚F and then lower or raise temp as desired. Lager Yeast are typically fermented at 45˚ – 58˚F. If desired, Lager Yeast can be given a “hot start” at 65-68˚F and then lowered to the primary temperature after active fermentation begins (10-20hrs).
    GY011 British Ale #1 GigaYeast is available now in the BeerCo Shop in GigaYeast Gold pitches the first homebrew yeast with a true 5 gallon / 19 litre pitch rate for consistent fermentations without the need for a starter (> 200 billion yeast).

    • GY011 British Ale #1 GigaYeast (Liquid) for a fast ferment ale with lager profile. GY011 is a strong attenuator, produces low esters and has excellent flocculation “like a brick” for clear beer. We know for a fact a very popular craft Hoppy NZ Pilsner loved by many and credited with starting this style of NZ Pilsner is in fact an Ale!
    • GY002 Czech Pilsner GigaYeast (Liquid) for a tradition dry clean Czech style pilsner with a light malt body. Note that GY002 need to be fermented cold 9˚C – 13˚C (48˚F – 55˚F) and will benefit from an extended cold lagering after fermentation of 42+ days.

    • Fermentis Saflager W-34/70 Yeast (Dry) 2 x 11g Sachets
    Method:
    1. Mash – the brewer should do normal mash regime, probably mashing at around 67 C for at least 60 mins
    2. Mash off – Infuse mash with near boiling water while stirring or with recirculating mash system raise temp to mash out at 76C
    2. Sparge slowly – once again the brewer should do normal regime at around 77C
    3. Boil – vigorous boil for 90 mins
    4. Yeast & Fermentation – Pitch your favourite Pilsner yeast and ferment around 10C.
    5. Conditioning – Rack the beer after two weeks or less when primary complete and cold condition for a month if patient at near 2C.

    Where you been man???…we hear you say…No June or July Brewing News! How are we supposed to do our great work ridding the world of beer poverty without additional brewing inspiration in our inbox each month…sorry brewing brothers and sisters…we have been busy brewers…bagging…tagging…and shipping out your orders on top of moving warehouses into our own new digs…in Unit 1 / 1-3 Disney Ave, Keilor East, VIC 3033 where your and our brewing dreams come true! More news on that front in months to come…



    Dermott ducked across to RADelaide in July to hang out with our wonderful supply partners and a lot of Aussie craft brewers at ACBC2017 and took the chance to share some of what he knows on how to grow your business outside Australia in a Keynote talk and panel Q and A on Export – Triumphs and Tribulations with some great Aussie Craftbrewers. Gus has been a busy bee in the back end on the website and with a new baby boy Rafa on board is still keeping our IT platforms in check and our CFO Rog has even bagged and tagged some orders while Dermott was on the road…but that’s enough dribble from us on with the real brewing news…PS drop us a line anytime with your views on how we can improve our range and service of awesome brewing materials to keep you #brewinghappy and send us your feedback to feedback@beerco.com.au

    Gladfield Dark Malts of Winter:
    [​IMG]

    Author: Caleb De Frees – Gladfield Malt Editor: Dermott Dowling – BeerCo

    Brown Ale, Porter and Stout… Oh, My!
    As the weather cools our go-to beers at Gladfield Malt in NZ [and BeerCo in AU] quickly change from the crisp bright beers of summer to the more robust, darker – maltier beers of winter. Instead of comparing the complexity of the hop profile we look for some warmer flavours that are a bit more filling and rich, especially after a chilly day working out in a cold southerly wind.

    For darker beers, I choose my malts in two distinct ways.

    1. Simple. Let one specialty malt be the showcase and provide all the flavour to the finished beer. Stout is my favourite example as I only use a rich roasted barley and base malt. I think of it as a showcase of all the flavours you can get from just one specialty.

    2. Complexity and Layering. For different styles of Porter and Boch, I like a more complex approach. In this case, I will choose malts from different colour ranges and blend them to achieve layers of flavour. Roasted Wheat at 600 EBC has a much different flavour contribution to a Dark Chocolate at 1350. Balancing these flavours that come from different roast levels is the challenge of a good dark beer.

    There is a lot of hype about using a de-husked malt to reduce astringency. The theory being that with the husk intact burning happens during roasting which adds the astringent bitter flavours. But much of that hype is misplaced. As Maltsters, there are many ways we can adjust our roasting process to reduce any burning that could happen in the roasting drum. Using careful water additions we can allow the husk to steam as it darkens, preventing any charring and allowing a very even roasted product. One thing a dehusked version of malt is often missing is the deep flavours of true chocolate malt.

    For some recipes using the darker Gladfield Malts to keep you warm in the darker depths of winter head on over to our Recipe Library on the Blog and if you have some to share then send to us at feedback@beerco.com.au and we will post them for the benefit of other brewers out there! Share what we know it’s how we grow as brewers.

    Equipment of the Month: Malt Mechanics Conical Fermenters
    [​IMG]

    Malt Mechanics fermenters are the only plastic home-brewing conical which come fully featured with tri-clamp fittings and stainless steel valves in 1/2″ for the take-off, and 1″ for the yeast-dump. The fermenters are suitable for transferring beer under pressure and come with everything you need to get your beer fermenting right out of the box.Malt Mechanics have designed their fermenters to be flexible enough that home-brewers can add to and adapt them to suit the needs of their own home brewing methods, while having out-of-the-box functionality that lets you just get on and brew.

    These fermenters come standard with all-stainless hardware. Valves, sanitary fittings, lid, legs, latches and fasteners are all manufactured in 304 stainless steel, and all seals are made from food-grade silicon. The body of the fermenter is manufactured right here in New Zealand in 1/4″ thick high-density polyethylene (HDPE). This is a trusted material in home-brewing which, combined with our inherent design features, provides a sanitary, low oxygen-permeable environment for your fermenting beer.

    HDPE is also an incredibly strong material, and we have designed the fermenter in a way that (with your own suitable fitting added through the 22mm or 7/8″ lid hole ) brewers are able to use their own CO2 source to gently push beer into their kegs – once again preserving it from the spoils of oxygen.

    Gladfield Red Back Wheat Malt is here for a STRICTLY LIMITED TIME ONLY!

    Gladfield Red Back Wheat Malt is prepared by a special process before going into the roaster, where it is roasted to favour certain maillard reactions which cause the malt to produce a lovely red hue in the resulting beer without the opalescence that can occur with other similar malts.

    Specification:
    • Colour: 27 EBC
    • How does it taste? The flavour in a “malt tea” is fairly mild – lightly bready/toasty with a raisin/dry cranberry type finish to it.
    • Aroma: Lightly fruity & bready.
    Typical Uses & Styles:
    • Doppelbock
    • Hefeweizen
    • Kölsch
    • Munich Dunkel
    • Pilsner

    Yeast of the Month: GY048 Golden Pear Belgian GigaYeast

    GigaYeast Golden Pear Belgian GY048 is a traditional yeast from the originator of the Belgian Golden Strong Ale style. Robust attenuation makes this yeast an excellent choice for low or high gravity Belgian and farmhouse style ales.

This yeast produces a moderate amount of sulfide that will dissipate quickly with conditioning.

    Buy Your Gladfield Vienna Malt Now! From $16.95 incl. GST for 5 Kg
    Malt of the Month: Gladfield Vienna Malt
    [​IMG][​IMG]

    Gladfield Vienna Malt is a favourite go to malt at BeerCo often used in a variety of beer styles to add some extra malt layering of complexity and sweet malty character with light toast flavour.

    Cut into your favourite Pilsner recipe at around 15% or a hoppy Pale Ale or IPA at up to equivalent levels of your go to base malt and you will notice the extra sweetness and complexity nicely offsets the hops and gives a beautiful colour and mouth feel.

    Gladfield Vienna has a kiwi twist but still has the normal characteristics of your typical Vienna malt. The germination and kilning allows a sweeter maltier character with out over doing it. It is ideal for darker lagers or Marzen style beers.

    Gladfield Vienna malt goes well with Gladiator Malt and Toffee Malt giving a big white head and lovely golden lager for that drinkable session beer.

    Lovely malt, perfect for 100% use in a Vienna lager I just made – seems slightly maltier in flavour profile than Weyermann alternative. I’ll definitely be using this again.

    Hop of the Month: Cashmere US Hops
    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Cashmere was released by Washington State University in 2013. A daughter of Cascade, it includes Northern Brewer germplasm through the male parent. The alpha acid content of Cashmere is higher than Cascade. Cashmere contains no Farnesene and twice as much Humulene as Cascade

    Brewing Usage
    • Dual Purpose.
    Cashmere really shines when used for aroma and flavor in hop-forward styles, or where the intensity of its exotic tropical notes will complement sour, fruited, or funky ales.

    Its respectable alpha content combined with low co-humulone lets it contribute smooth bitterness if used early in the boil.

    Aroma & Flavour Characteristics
    Tropical coconut, peach and tangerine filled out the aroma, while a similar flavor profile paired coconut, melon, tangerine and lemongrass.

    Analytical Data
    Cashmere Lot ID CSM-0601

    Style Guidance:
    IPA all the way. Pair this with exotic Mosaic for an absolute tropical hop bomb.

    BeerCo Customer Reviews on Cashmere:
    Muzza October 24, 2017

    Wow..used this as a bittering addition and teamed with mosaic for late and keg additions.. One helluva cocktail there. Next run I will pop some super pride or similar in for the bittering but that could become my ironclad IPA right there

    Fergus reviewed BeerCo5 star 26 November at 16:50 ·

    Bought some of the new cashmere hop. Awesome flavours of pine and citrus
    One batch I dry hopped with cashmere and mosaic and this is an absolute winner
    The other batch I straight cashmere with no dry hop – wonderful taste too

    Recipe of the Month: Pulp Fan Fiction DIPA with Blood Orange and Fresh Orange Rind
    We love getting our brewing on at BeerCo and when a great customer and friend suggested we do a side by side brew day in the name of research and exploration of new and exciting brewing equipment comparing the Grainfather Connect vs. Robobrew v 2.0 (with Pump)we could not resist or hide our excitement.

    Special thanks to Andrew @Stass Brewing for his great suggestion and beering with us as we found a mutually free date for the brew day as we set about the most important thing of coming up with a beer and recipe to brew on the day!

    As luck would have it the Oranges in the back garden were plump and juicy and screaming at me “throw me in an IPA and Pulp me!”

    [​IMG]

    So Pulp them we did!

    Andrew @Stass Brewing got to work on the recipe and I reached out to a friend in our local craft brewing industry who I knew could point us in the right direction.

    Alana Rees – Innovation Brewer @MountainGoatBeer gave us some excellent tips and pointers as we set out to brew an IPA with Oranges inspired by her own marvelous creations Mountain Goat Beer Pulped Fiction IPA.

    This strictly limited edition Rare Breed based was based on one of Alana’s old homebrew recipes and the commercial release took out a couple of Gold Medals at AIBA2017including best draught IPA.

    Ever so helpful and with Alana’s guidance Andrew and myself put our own twists and peels on her award winning recipe as we set about designing a homebrew recipe we are more than glad to share with you below:

    What's the height of the MM 30L fermenter on legs, without the airlock?
    I need to get it into a Keg King / Craftbrewer kegerator.
