Beer Wine Refractometer with ATC
Refractometers measure sugar in an aqueous solution. Because they require such a small sample, they are a great alternative to hydrometers, which require several ounces of liquid and a test tube. This refractometer features Automatic Temperature Correction and both Brix and Specific Gravity scales. These are great for measuring the sugar content...

Can also be used for straining must in winemaking. Tested at 50lb burst strength. Reusable- just clean well after each use! We also stock a BIAB with handles for enhance...
BIAB with Handles
Heavy duty 24" X 26" nylon bag with handles perfect for doing brew in a bag (BIAB) batches. Just place the bag in the kettle with your pre-heated brewing water, add crushed grains, and mash on! Handles make removal of the heavy spent grains much easier. Can also be used for straining must in winemaking. Reusable- just clean well after each use!
Campden Tablets (100)
Metabisuphite tablets release sulfur dioxide, which acts as a sterilant and antioxidant. For sterilizing must, use one tablet per gallon; two crushed tablets equal 1/4 teaspoon. Potassium metabisulphite is typically preferred over sodium metabisuphite as it is less prone to flavor contribution. Both are available.
For boosting gravity. Also used in cider production. Buy big and save!
Drilled and grommeted for airlock. 7.9 gallon lid is gasketed.
The Fermometer is a liquid crystal display thermometer designed to monitor the temperature of the fermentation process with convenience and precision and without the sanitation concerns of immersion thermometers. It has a temperature range of 44 to 86 degrees Fahrenheit with temperature indicators every 2 degrees. Interpolation allows for one ...
A classic for home brewers. These glass carboys are from Italy and come in multiple sizes. We recommend using the 6.5 gal for primary fermentation, the 6 gal for doing secondary fermentation on wine or beer, the five gal for secondary, and the 3 gal for small batches.

18% alcohol tolerance. A very competitive yeast that will inhibit wild yeasts. It will restart stuck fermentations because of good alcohol and sulfite tolerance. This is a very neutral yeast that will have very little effect on the varietal character of the grape. A popular strain that ferments fully and flocculates well producing compact lees. ...
Lalvin Montpelier (K1V-1116)
18% alcohol tolerance. A vigorous and competitive fermenter that, because of its neutral effect on varietal character, is very well suited to fruit wines as well as wines to be made from grapes. Also known as the "Montpellier" strain. 59-86° F (15-30° C)
16% alcohol tolerance. An excellent choice for wine styles like Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon, Chardonel and Gewurztraminer. Low nutrient and oxygen requirements, and it has been known to ferment juice at low temperatures (59 degrees F) to dryness. An excellent thoil converter making it a complementary yeast for developing varietal Sauvi...
Can add an element of fresh, fruity tartness. Derived from apples.
Oxygen Brewery Wash
A very powerful easy-to-dissolve cleaner that is safe on stainless steel. Use at full concentration with a prolonged soak to effortlessly remove stubborn build up.
