Carlton Italian Festa & Sauerkraut

~ Carlton Italian Festa ~


On Sunday the 23rd of October Lygon Street is closed to traffic & transformed into a mecca of fine Italian food, drink & music for the annual Carlton Italian Festa. Home Make It is excited to have our own pop up shop at the Festa this year & we will also be whipping up some Italian favorites during our demos throughout the day. So save the date, bring the family down to Carlton to enjoy a day of the best Italian culture has to offer. And please don't forget to come and say hello to the Home Make It team !

~ Krautsourcing ~ 

On October the 8th, the wonderful Krautsourcing initiative by CERES Fair Food will be happening in homes all over. Cabbages will be sliced, smooshed & salted to turn them into a delectable fermented treat. If you want to get in on the action, go to their Krautsourcing site & join up. You won't regret it. Keep in mind we are offering 10% off any preserving goods in store if you mention that you are Krautsourcing!  For online purchases please use the discount code:  KRAUT

~ Cade's Brew News ~

We have been working on a couple of new exciting things here in the brew department at Home Make It. Firstly we are excited to finally be getting our very own Home Make It Fresh Wort Kits. We will be doing these them in 20L containers, so all you have to do is pour them into your fermenter & pitch your yeast. It's a high quality all grain product, with no dilution needed. These are getting brewed up by our great friends at The Craft & Co, on their onsite commercial brewery. So watch this space for availability & for now here's a sneak peek at one of the labels to wet your appetite.



To marry up with Fresh Wort Kits, we are also releasing Grain Kits with the same grain types & ratio's we use to make it's Wort Kit counterpart. So if you like the result you get from the Wort Kit, you can grab it's ingredients & make your own from scratch. Again, here's a quick look at the label we will be doing for the Grain Kits. In store soon!

If you are one of those people who really don't care for footy and would rather put your hand to making a bespoke beer this weekend, we have you covered. We are fully stocked up with Extract tins, brewing grains & a fridge full of hops, White Labs yeast, Wyeast yeast, Safale & Saflager dry yeasts. We are open until 1pm on Grand Final day, so get in early & get your brew on . 

Happy Brewing....and go the Swans !!! Cade
