It must be close to beer o'clock

As home brewers take their brewing to a new level with grain brewing, Micah from Core Brewing Concepts demonstrates the unique features of the Hot Liquor Tank. High quality and affordable grain brewing equipment is now available for the home brewer. Come in store to see the full catalogue.  Our range of grain brewing equipment includes Hot Liquor Tanks, Connical Fermenters, Boiling Kettles and more.  

With the salumi season almost over, we know that home brewers are starting to plan their home brewing to be ready for summer.  Whether you are into grain brewing or tin brewing, the most disciplined of brewers will be brewing now and resisting the temptation to drink now before summer, allowing for optimum flavour, balance and stabilising.  

We have matched the growing interest, skills and enthusiasm of our customers to a new range of products, supplies and equipment in grain brewing. Take your home brewing to the next level, and let your imagination and creativity go wild with our expanded range of grains, hops and White Lab yeasts.

Both our Reservoir and Clayton stores also offer on the spot, and complimentary grain milling for any grains purchased. You can also pre order 25Kg bags of grain by calling our Reservoir store on 03 9460 2777 or Clayton store on 03 9574 8222.   
Melbourne Salami Festa                              

 Entry Forms are now available for the 2013 Melbourne's Salami Festa on the 15th September, 2013. If you think you've made "the best homemade salami", then be sure to enter.  This is one community event and celebration of the beloved "salumi" that is not to be missed! We'll let you know as soon as tickets go on sale.    


Here's an inside look at the Headquarters of  "BGS Group" (Bloody Good Salami), as they try to take out back to back crowning for "best homemade salami" for the 2013 Melbourne Salami Festa. Will they be able to replicate that winning combination this year?  I hope they took notes from last year :)
