Bootlegger’s Knuckle Sandwich Double IPA makes return

BeerNews.org - Wed, 08/27/2014 - 18:24

News Wire: 

(Fullerton,CA) – Our most popular and sought after beer returns this week, we’re talking about Knuckle Sandwich DIPA. Those looking for that hop punch upside the head will be able to get what they have comin’ to them.

Knuckle Sandwich DIPA is our rendition of the West-Coast Style Double IPA, bursting with a double dose of American hops, backed by a rich layer of malt to give it that body and smooth mouthfeel.

Brewed originally in 2010, we hit our loyal customers right between the eyes with one of the most delicious beers brewed in all of Orange County. We brew this big bold beer as often as we can, but the minute we are out, the biggest question asked of us is when it will be back. Owner and Head Brewer Aaron Barkenhagen went back in his brewer’s notebook and made some subtle t to bring the beer closer to it’s small batch days on Richman Ave. After sampling this from the brite tank, we are quite amazed at how spot on this batch of Knuckle has turned out.

Knuckle Sandwich DIPA Facts

Conceived: Knuckle Sandwich DIPA became an instant hit with cult following immediately after it’s conception in 2010. Knuckle Sandwich was voted Best Beer of 2010 on TheFullPint.com, and has the high ratings of 95/100 on Beer Advocate and a 99/100 on RateBeer.

Format: 22 oz. bottles, 1, ⅙ bbl keg, ½ bbl keg.

Availability: Bottles available at retailers where Bootlegger’s beers are sold as well as Bootlegger’s Tasting Room in Fullerton, CA. You may find this on draft at food establishments that proudly serve Bootlegger’s beer.

Ingredients: Hops (Nugget, Cascade, Simcoe, CTZ), Malt (Pale 2-Row Barley, Crystal 40, White Wheat, CaraPils, Dextrose), Our House Yeast and Water.

Gravity: 10% Alcohol by Volume

Suggested food pairings: Smoked ham, barbecue, chocolate covered caramels, gingerbread.

Beer In Ads #1294: Why Responsible Brewers Are Adopting This Symbol

Brookston Beer Bulletin - Tue, 08/26/2014 - 23:32
Tuesday’s ad is from the United Brewers Industrial Foundation, from 1939. This was well before the “Beer Belongs” series, and just before World War II. It looks like it most likely was published in a trade magazine of some type rather than a consumer periodical. But I especially...

Great Deal: Stainless Top Digital Scale… $11, New Record Low

Homebrew Finds - Tue, 08/26/2014 - 14:28

This highly rated scale has recently sold for as much as $15.99.  It just dropped down to it a new record low Amazon price of $11.   It ships free with Prime or with a qualifying $35 order.  I can no longer take it… I’m ordering this scale.

The 11 lb capacity is large enough to weigh grain (in two batches) for an all grain batch and the 1 gram accuracy is good enough for measuring hops.  This could also handle batches of specialty grains, DME and the like.

This has a stainless top, back lit LCD display, measures in lbs/ounces and grams/kilograms and has the (in my opinion) required tare function.  Tare lets you zero out the scale with the empty measuring vessel on so that you have an accurate weight that does not include the vessel.

In spite of this scale’s odd name, it gets great ratings and has a solid set of features.

Threatened by competitor! Digital Kitchen Scale - $11 + Free Shipping with Prime or Qualifying $35 order

Pinned: $2.09 Poppets *Brand New Kegs *Kettle-Palooza *$7.27 Scale and Review

Blichmann G2… Ordered + Shopping Tip

Homebrew Finds - Tue, 08/26/2014 - 13:06

I just ordered a new Blichmann BoilerMaker G2 for my home brewery!  I have two G1 Kettles that I’ve been very pleased with.  I’m excited to put the G2 to work.

The recently announced G2 Kettle is available in 7.5, 10, 15, 20, 30 and 55 gallon sizes.  The BoilerMaker G2 is designed and manufactured in the US.  It includes a Site Glass w/Laser Etched Volume Markers, Adjustable Angle BrewMometer Thermometer, Linear Flow Valve (think ball valve only better?) and tool-less dip tube.  The G2 also features a 1.2 height to diameter ratio.

I had a chance to see John Blichmann do a demonstration at NHC and one thing that came through is his passion for homebrewing and homebrewers.  He started building this gear because… he’s a homebrewer.  This translates into a bunch of well thought out features that are designed with the homebrewer in mind… the valve now features a cool touch silicone handle, the finish is not brushed to hide finger prints, the lid can be stored on the kettle, the handle and the valve can now be oriented in any direction and… more.

Shopping Tip:  Blichmann gear is generally price controlled.  That means it’s going to be about the same price no matter where you get it.  AIH offers the equivalent of 5% back via their rewards program.  They are also offering free shipping.
