A Link-Bait Manifesto

Brookston Beer Bulletin - Wed, 10/15/2014 - 10:34
This morning I got a press release from the P.R. Firm for a well-known men’s magazine that was so obviously link-bait, that I almost didn’t even want to read it. I won’t say who or what, mostly because I’m tired of playing into their hands, but most of you will no doubt be...

Beer In Ads #1343: Everybody Enjoys A Double Diamond

Brookston Beer Bulletin - Tue, 10/14/2014 - 21:56
Tuesday’s ad is yet another one for Double Diamond, also from the 1950s. Part of the Ind Cooper’s “Works Wonders” series. I think it’s funny that “everybody” means a mailman, hunter, jack hammer operator and a dressed-up rich guy with his briefcase and...

Super Styrian Pellet Hops – Cold Stored 2011 Crop – $6/lb

Homebrew Finds - Tue, 10/14/2014 - 19:38

From Nikobrew…

Like some amazing time capsule, Warehouse Enforcer Scott has recently found a small cache of Super Styrian hops.  Also known as Styrian Aurora, Super Styrian is a Northern Brewer cross originating in eastern Europe.  Our crop comes from Slovenia on a small, 25-acre family farm. 

Our hops are flushed with nitrogen and stored at a frosty 5 degrees Fahrenheit to ensure their stability and freshness.   This crop is the last remnants of our 2011 shipment, and has consistently been one of our more well-received hops ever.  We package and store these hops in the most ideal condition, preserving the oils and limiting their breakdown.  In a recent “sniff test” conducted on-site, these hops still smell fantastic, and are ideal to brew with!  

Help us get rid of these great hops so we can bring in more direct from the grower to you!

Pick up ONE POUND of this great hop for only $6, or get yourself TWO OUNCES for only $1.40

Also Consider: Centennial lbs - $14 – Cascade lbs – $13.75 – All HopsHand Turned Tap Handles

Bundles With: $5 Flat Rate Shipping includes Alaska, Hawaii, Puerto Rico, US Virgin Islands and APO/FPO addresses

All Grain and Extract Kits – Discounted + Free Shipping, No Minimum

Homebrew Finds - Tue, 10/14/2014 - 14:29

Kegerator.com is a More Beer distributor and as such offers a selection of More Beer ingredient kits, both all grain and extract.  The recipes I’ve checked sell for the same price at both retailers.  If you use promo code HOMEBREWFINDS (5% Off Site Wide) prices drop by 5%.

The kicker is… these are shipping for free regardless of order size.  That means you get the pictured Columbus IPA All Grain Kit, shipped to your door (in the continental US) for $24.69.

We ran this same deal back in August.  Not too long after, the free (no minimum) shipping went away.  It’s back again as of this post.

Check it out - Here - use promo code HOMEBREWFINDS

Digital Non-Contact Thermometer – $13.90 Shipped via eBay

Homebrew Finds - Tue, 10/14/2014 - 11:26

via eBay.  Etekcity’s DT8380 is selling for $13.90 with free shipping.  For comparison, this same thermometer is selling for $16.98 on Amazon.  It’s worth noting that this is also getting great reviews on Amazon.

Since this is no touch, you can check the temp of yeast washing and yeast rehydration water and your starter wort without the risk of infection.  I find mine particularly useful for rehydrating yeast.

Infrared thermometers should not be considered a direct replacement for your standard thermometer.  A quality IR thermometer will give you a close approximation of surface temperatures.  Note that steam seems to throw off readings.  Uses include: Contained yeast rehydration water, chilled wort or starter temperature, kegerator, fermenter or fermenation area and beer tasting samples.  If you’re looking for a standard thermometer, consider these two Top FindsCDN DTQ450X (review) - ThermoWorks Thermapen (review)
