The Hard Work is Done. Now we Wait....

 ~ Salami Season ~ 


As winter is wrapping it's frosty tendrils around us, the Home Make It team & all of our customers have been busy wrapping up their own goods to cure. Hours of work & laughter with families around Australia has churned out tonnes of Salami, Sopressa, Pancetta, Capocollo, Bacon and much more. All of different shapes, sizes & flavours, they hang in their neat little rows reminding us of the feasts to come. Now we wait. 

To celebrate this special season, here are a few shots from customers and the Home Make It team of their curing adventures..... 

Filled, netted & tagged. 

This one's so big we had to use cable ties !



Prosciutto getting prepped for hanging. 

Fun & games here on Salami day ! 

But this is not the end...yet. There is still plenty of Winter left to produce some cured goods & our shelves are packed to the brim with all the goods you need. From mincers, to casings, spices, salt, netting & string. We have it all except the meat. Come in and see our Home Make It team sooner rather than later & make use of this cold weather before it ends. 

~ Sealing that Freshness in ~ 


Now that your cured meats & olives are ready to consume, how do you store it away & keep that freshness in for the year ahead ? Vacuum sealed, that's how! With our range of Italian Sico Vacuum sealing machines you can seal the taste in & keep the oxygen out. 

~ Frankston Wine Show ~

 There's not long to go until the annual Frankston Amateur Winemakers Guild, when home winemakers gather their best wines & send them in to get judged. To the winners go the spoils & to all the rest the judges feedback is a priceless tool in improving their future efforts. Home Make It is proud to be a sponsor & drop off point for all of your entries. If you are keen to give your wine a shot, have a look here & download the entry forms & information.  

 ~ Cade's Brew News ~ 

Last Saturday we finally got to taste the Red Roar, where Home Make It & the Craft & Co brewed the winner of the Merri Mashers Homebrew club IPA competition on a commercial system. We poured viking Malts, mountains of American hops & blood sweat & tears into the beer & it's a real winner ! It's a testament to collaboration with good brewers, good ingredients & a love for quality beer. Get down to the Craft & Co for a taste, it won't disappoint even the fussiest of beer drinkers. 

We still have our fridges loaded with quality liquid yeasts from the USA, with loads of White Labs & Yeast Bay gracing the shelves. Get in quick while they're fresh ! 

Today we received our stock of the brand spanking new SS Brewtech Brewmaster 50 Litre brewbuckets. They really are a well built piece of brewing kit. On this larger size ( previously only 26 Litre ) they have added more lid clamps & adjustable feet. and at only $495 for a quality stainless steel conical bottomed fermenter it's a great deal.
