~ Octoberfest Beer Bonanza ~

Oktoberfest, summer & Wheat beers go together like honey & the bee. so here's a wonderful recipe for an American Wheat by Kyle from our Clayton store. Perfect fare on a hot Melbourne summers day. 


American Style Wheat - Similar to Widmer Hefewiezen and Boulevard Wheat



2 cans wheat liquid malt extract



25 grams Hallertauer hops Boil for 60 min



15 grams Cascade hops Boil for 15 minutes



10 grams Centennial hops : Add when you stop the boil 



Yeast :  Safale US-05



Method : Empty your extract cans into 4 litres of water & boil for an hour. Add the above hops for the advised boil time. Pour this into a fermenter & top up with cold water to 20 litres, stirring to make sure it is all mixed through. Add yeast,  close your fermenter & wait for the magic to happen. . 


Prehopped extract substitutions - If mixing from a kit there is no need for any kettle additions of the hops. Simply replace 1 can of the wheat liquid malt extract with 1 can of the prehopped Coopers, Morgans, or Muntons wheat beer tins.

Adding fruit puree to wheat beers has become increasingly popular. Mango, apricot, watermelon, cherry, blueberry and peach are good places to start. Simply add 1-1.5 kilos of pasteurized puree to the fermenter once fermentation has started to slow down. Fermentation should become more active again as the yeast ferments the fructose from the puree.



~ Sausage Time ~


 Here at Home Make It we champion the idea that home made is always best. You can control ingredients, freshness, recipes & above all else there is the satisfaction of eating your own produce with friends & family. Warmer weather means more meals outdoors & BBQing. And who doesn't like a sausage ? With our Garhe manual mincers you can mince & fill your own sausages at home in a flash. They come in all shapes & sizes, for big or small families. This summer why not make your own gourmet sausages ? To make it even easier we have formulated & put together Sausage Recipe kits. With a mincer & one of these kits, all you need is meat.
