Extract Kit of the Month

Lemon Wheat Shandy

Shandies are an established German summer tradition. The blending of lighter alcohol wheat beers with lemon soda or lemonade has been quenching thirsty Germans for generations. This version is updated to include honey for some sweetness on the back end and American hops to accentuate the citrus qualities. This is a great “lawn mower” beer or while sitting on the porch on a hot summer’s afternoon.

The instructions you are reading right now

 

Tips and Tricks:

a) Keep the milled grains loose inside the mesh bag to extract the most flavor and color

b) Pay careful attention to not let your steeping water exceed 170°F which extracts tannins and stops the enzymes from extracting the sugars from the grain.

c) Make sure that the malt extract does not accumulate and caramelize on the bottom of the kettle. Keep it stirred.

d) Hops can cause malignant hyperthermia when consumed by dogs, with sometimes fatal results. Don’t let Spot eat your hops.

A Work in Progress, but actually moving now! 

 
Tom's Brew Shop's New Space!
      March was pretty busy. We finished the 300 sq ft walk-in cooler. Works extremely well with brand new compressor on the roof and new evaporators inside. 6 LED lit reach-in doors for all your hops and yeast selections. Last week I also brought over the entire brewhouse and set the serving tanks inside the cooler. Everything fits nicely. We also staged the Brewhouse, platform/deck, stairs and fermenters, in order to measure the space and plan the floor drain construction. Hoping to get the concrete cut and drains set by the end of April to the first half of May. During this time we hope to start on building the bar and setting up the 20 taps planned. Like most things, progress is slow, but that allows us to really look at details and fine tune the needs of the project. We have a bid in for the bar, the stainless steel bar top, the steel knee wall that will have 4" hog wire built in. and I'm planning to check out some cool diamond plate panels for the front of the bar, as well as stainless steel sheets for the backing panel for the tap handles. Also hoping to find some cool old style lights to work with the gas station theme. When time comes to decorate, we will be asking if anyone has great old car signs, gas station signs, or things that would add to the look. Old oil cans, tools, pumps, road signs or memorabilia. I'd love to see what you may have. We are planning to build a cool water station out of an old 55 gallon steel drum.
 
Cheers!!
Tom
