Cacao Nibs - 4 oz

$13.95

Cacao nibs are crushed seeds from the Cacao plant. It is these seeds that are the key ingredient in chocolate. While not technically chocolate themselves, our nibs do have a wonderful coco smell to them, and will provide a very subdued coco-like flavor to any beer.

Our Beer Geek began to use these nibs like you would a dry hop, but in a process  coined - just to sound official - called "Dry Nibbing". All it means is simply adding the nibs to your secondary fermenter or keg for a couple of weeks (4 ounces per 5 gallons is a great place to start), allowing the beer to draw out the subtle flavors and aromas of the cacao nibs. He has had great success with leaving the nibs inside the keg for as long as 8 months! They can also be used in the boil or mash - wherever you would like to experiment with them. Any addition of the nibs pre-boil will impart some bitterness, so use a lot less than you would when adding them to a keg. ( Stone Brewing Company made a stout using cacao nibs in the boil to actually replace some of the hops in the recipe!)

Our cacao nibs go great with darker beers like porters and stouts, but could blend with any beer - perhaps a wit or a saison!

Foam Control (FermCapS) (1 oz)

$6.95

Eliminate the head on fermenting beer and brew a larger quantity in your existing fermenter. Foam control - also known as FermCapS - does not affect the head on your finished beer, but can actually increase the head by retaining head-forming compounds that would have been blown off during ferment. It will settle-out of beer before bottling or kegging as it is actually absorbed onto the surface of the yeast cells and filter media. Add two drops per gallon at start of fermentation. Comes in a bottle with eye dropper. Good for about 50 batches of beer.

French Oak Cubes (100g)

$7.95

These oak cubes (aka oak beans) bring aromatic sweetness and a campfire/roasted coffee attribute and a nice mouthfeel. Flavours can be described as vanilla, caramelized oak, and a light fruity roast. Typically added during secondary fermentation during the aging stage, these cubes require a longer contact time that the traditional oak chips, making these more suitable for long term aging beers (Imperial Stouts, Barleywines, Sour Beer). Longer contact time means longer extraction of flavours (3-6 months), which will lead to a much more complex and smooth combination of flavours and aromatics. Chips are usually done giving flavour after a week, there by giving a somewhat one dimensional oak character.

Rice Hulls (1 lb)

Rice Hulls are used to aid in filterability when you are doing all-grain brewing and using a high percentage of wheat or oats and have had lautering problems. They do not impart any flavor to the finished beer. Use at a percentage not greater than 5% of the total grain bill.
