Crisp Premium Peated Malt
$5.95Kg - $23.80/5Kg (SAVE 20%) - $89.25/25Kg (SAVE 40%) / $1900/MT (SAVE 65%)
Historically, Scottish Malthouses used peat as the fuel for kiln-drying malt, which added a phenolic flavour to the dried malt. Crisp continue this tradition in their modern malting plant in Scotland; where they control the introduction of peat smoke during the kilning phase. This gives Crisp Premium Peated Malt the distinctive flavour that characterises many of the west coast Scottish island whiskies.

Magnetic stir plate
Great piece of equipment. Mixes up my yeast starters. And has a heater as well if you want to heat up the starter if need be. Totally recommend this.


Healthy fermentation starts with healthy yeast and making a starter is key to getting off to a flying start with your next fermentation. Simply place your yeast propagation flask on top of the stir plate and drop in the stir bar. Switch on the machine and adjust the spin speed.

Crisp Flaked Torrefied Rice
$5.95/1Kg - $23.80/5Kg (SAVE 20%) - $89.25/25Kg (SAVE 40%) - $2,500/MT+GST
Darren James (DJ), Senior Brewer Bath Ales – United Kingdom
“We use flaked rice in our new English Lager Sulis with great results. Using it we are able to create a lager that is very light in colour, clean, crisp, medium bodied and slightly dry in finish. Crisp flaked rice helps bring out all these flavour profiles without imparting strong flavours or adding colour. The rice adds a smooth, clean body and mouthfeel with a dry finish too, making Sulis very easy drinking.”

Crisp Flaked Torrefied Rice consists of rice grains that have been cooked at high temperature, resulting in gelatinisation of the starchy endosperm, and then flaked.

Crisp Flaked Torrefied Rice lightens wort colour, reduces protein levels and imparts a characteristic dryness to finished beers.

Flaked Torrefied Rice does not require milling before being added to the mash.

Insist on Crisp Flaked Rice in your Light Lager or Brut IPA!

Milli - Vanilla Porter - BeerCo All-Grain Recipe Kit
$59.95 - $64.95

You can break out some of your favourite Milli Vanilli beats while you brew this one or hum your own tunes fireside as you warm up your brewing and social life with family and friends. Cheers!

Kevin B. Verified Buyer 5 star rating 29/05/19
Irish Dry Stout
I recently made an Irish Dry Stout to enjoy on the coming cold nights ahead. The recipe called for a base malt of Maris Otter Ale Malt. I chose the Crisp Maris Otter Ale Malt from BeerCo for my brew. I usually brew with pale malts for my dry stouts but the Crisp Maris Otter Ale Malt made a notable difference to my stout brewing. I get a wonderful bready grainy flavour with a hint of nuttiness. I'll be using this malt from now on.

Crisp Malting Maris Otter® is grown under contact by selected Norfolk farmers and is recognised worldwide as the benchmark barley for the best ale malt. In malting, as with brewing, the importance and the quality of raw materials cannot be underestimated.

NEW! TILT Hydrometer and Thermometer Product Review with Stass
We have loved brewing and fermenting and measuring happy with the NEW! TILT Hydrometer but we thought we should pass one to our great mate Stass to see if the hype measures up to reality and here is what he has to say about the TILT

Split - Red IPA - BeerCo All-Grain Recipe Kit
A$59.95 - A$64.95
Good Red IPAs balance the hop-forward flavors and aromas of traditional IPA with the caramel, malty body of an amber ale. We like to think our Split | Red IPA is a solid compromise that lets you the brewer and beer drinker temper the resinous kick of a hop forward IPA with notes of something a bit softer, smoother and even slightly sweet.

Perfect for a hazy IPA
I used 30% naked oats in my hazy IPA with 70% maris otter, and the colour and haze were absolutely spot on. Not only did it look amazing when I first kegged the beer, but the haze remained all the way through for weeks and is still hazy as I write this about 3 weeks after kegging. They also add a subtle sweetness to the beer which works really well.
This will be my go to source of oats for all my hazy IPAs from now on!!!


Crisp Naked Oat Malt when mixed with barley malt can improve mouthfeel and introduce notes of a toasted, biscuity aroma and palate.

Sustain - Sep 2019 - BeerCo Brewing News...
by Dermott Dowling September 15, 2019
Sustain | You
Sustainability we are constantly working to reduce our impact on the planet and bring your brewing and distilling supplies to you as efficiently and effectively as possible.
Since Day 0 at BeerCo.com.au Sustainability has been at the forefront of our thinking and is one of our 5 foundational core values. We know its a popular buzzword nowadays, however, around here it guides us each and every day in the decisions we make and how we work to get your precious brewing and distilling supplies to you as efficiently and effectively as possible.

One small example is waste packaging. Everything that comes into BeerCo.com.au warehouse is turned around and reused either as a shipper or as filler for our customers e-commerce orders. We will never ask for your forgiveness if you receive an order with some stuffing that was shrink wrap on a pallet or filler in a carton of goods we received. We will ask for your forgiveness if we ship your order too slowly, because Speed and Service are two more of our 5 fundamental core values at BeerCo.com.au

Tanks again to all of our wonderful customers (old, present and new) and supply partners who dropped by to say Hi! to us at BrewCon19 3-6 Sep in Melbrewin' at Trade Booth #16.

In their second life, they were used to hold and mature some of the country’s most celebrated Tawney (Port) for many years.

After they had served their time maturing sweet fortified Tawny, they were sent down to the Tasmanian Cask Company where they were hand coopered into smaller barrels for a local whisky producer, along with receiving a shave and generous charr. In their 3rd life, they held and matured Tasmanian whisky from a producer that has won the highest awards locally and internationally for their whisky.

Crisp Extra Light Crystal gives a subtle caramel flavour Crystal 100

Crisp eXtra Light Crystal 100 Malt - NEW!
$5.95/1Kg - $89.25/25Kg (SAVE 40%)
Crystal and Cara Malts are so named for the caramelisation and crystallization of the sugars present in the barley kernel. Crisp take green malt from germination and apply heat while maintaining the moisture content so they are able to liquify the endosperm of the barley, transforming the starch into sugars. Heat is then applied and the caramelisation begins. In the case of Crystal Malts, when the endosperm cools, sugar crystals are formed. When you cut across the grain the glassy sheen of crystalized sugar can be seen. Each Crystal Malt imparts a clean, nutty, caramel-like sweetness to your beers.

Crisp Extra Light Crystal 100 Malt gives a subtle caramel flavour.

Pack Sizes:
  • 1 Kg Bag $5.95
  • 5 Kg Bag $23.80 (SAVE 20% on 1Kg Price)

Crisp Extra Light Crystal gives a subtle caramel flavour Crystal 100

Crisp Cara Malt
$5.95/1Kg - $89.25/25Kg (SAVE 40%)
Crisp Cara Malt is a very low colour Crystal Malt which has an almost completely glassy endosperm. It contains a greater degree of sweetness than Crystal Malt and the harsher nutty roasted flavours are not present.

Crisp Cara Malt greatly improves body, foam retention and beer stability whilst adding little colour. It has therefore, become very popular in the production of lagers where it is used to assist in enhancing flavour and character. For this reason it has also become a common constituent in low alcohol beers.

Sweet Caramel, Malty flavour Crisp Cara Malt is good in all beer styles up to 15% for body, foam and mouthfeel.

Pack Sizes:
  • 1 Kg Bag $5.95
  • 5 Kg Bag $23.80 (SAVE 20% on 1Kg Price)
  • 25 Kg Sack $89.25 (SAVE 20% on 1Kg Price)
  • Trade/Wholesale $2,350/MT ex GST or $2.35/Kg (SAVE 55% on 1Kg Price) in mixed minimum orders over 10 x 25Kg of Crisp and Malteurop. Send your trade/wholesale inquiries to us at Service@BeerCo.com.au

Strata® US Hops - NEW!
$10.95/100g - $383.25/5Kg (SAVE 30% OFF 100g Price)
Strata®, was developed at Oregon State University and originally known as X331. Flavors will remind you of grapefruit & pine and help round out a clean bite of a classic West Coast style India Pale Ale.

All experimentation points to Strata® being very versatile dual-purpose hop variety. Bittering with Strata® brings a nice balanced bitterness. Flavor and aroma additions bring out the fruity side with tropical fruit and fresh berry brightness. Brewers say that dry hopping deepens the grapefruit and dank/herbal/cannabis elements. At this point, it has been used mostly in IPAs, Pale Ales, and Session IPAs, but could work well in everything from Saisons to Lagers.

Aroma:
  • Passion Fruit, Grapefruit, Strawberry, Dank, Herbal, Cannabis
Analytical Data:
  • Harvest Year: 2019 | Lot: 1406 | Alpha Acid 17.0% | Beta Acid 6.8% | Total Oil 3.1mL/100g

Crisp Vienna Malt
$18.95/5Kg - $75.95/25Kg (SAVE 20%)
In the 1840s English maltsters developed air kilning techniques that would pave the way for light coloured beers. German brewers took this technique back to Vienna and Munich respectively and the malt styles were born.

Crisp Vienna Malt is made from English 2-row spring barley and is kilned to a slightly higher temperature than the Crisp Best Ale Malt. The result is a golden hued wort with a sweet, bread like aroma and flavour. Since it is a conventionally kilned malt, Vienna can be used as a base and is perfect creating its namesake, Vienna lager, in addition to other styles.

The subtle malty flavours associated with Vienna Malt provide toffee and caramel notes.

Pack Sizes:
  • 5 Kg Bag $18.95 (SAVE 20% on 1Kg Price)
  • 25 Kg Sack $74.95 (SAVE 20% on 1Kg Price)
  • Trade/Wholesale $!,850/MT ex GST or $1.85/Kg (SAVE 45% on 5Kg Price) in mixed minimum orders over 10 x 25Kg of Crisp and Malteurop and UniGrain. Send your trade/wholesale inquiries to us at Service@BeerCo.com.au

NEW! Lallemand Brewing Voss Kveik Ale Yeast
$7.95 / 11g sachet
Kveik is a Norwegian word meaning yeast. In the Norwegian farmhouse tradition, kveik was preserved by drying and passed from generation to generation. Kveik is the original, traditional dried yeast! The LalBrew® Voss strain was obtained from Sigmund Gjernes (Voss, Norway), who has maintained this culture using traditional methods since the 1980s and generously shared it with the wider brewing community.

LalBrew® Voss supports a wide range of fermentation temperatures between 25-40°C (77-104°F) with a very high optimal range of 35-40°C (95-104°F). Very fast fermentations are achieved within the optimal temperature range with full attenuation typically achieved within 2-3 days. The flavor profile is consistent across the entire temperature range: neutral with subtle fruity notes of orange and citrus. Flocculation is very high producing clear beers without filtration or use of process aids.

Pack Sizes and Prices:
  • 11g Sachet $7.95 inc GST - 500g coming soon...
Styles brewed with this bacteria include, but are not limited to,

  • Norwegian Farmhouse, Pale Ale, IPA, NEIPA, Saison
