TIRED OF MAKING YOUR OWN YEAST STARTERS? NOT FOND OF DEALING WITH MESSY LME (LIQUID MALT EXTRACT)? IN LESS THAN A WEEK WE WILL HAVE THE NEW OMEGA PROPPER STARTER ON HAND.THESE WILL BE SOLD IN 2 & 4 PACKS.


 

Omega Yeast is excited to announce the release of a new product for the homebrew community, making the brewing process easier for high quality craft brews. Propper Starter™ is a 16oz can of concentrated wort that allows a brewer to significantly decrease the amount of time spent preparing a starter so they can begin brewing more quickly.

A starter is often used and needed in the brewing process to increase the quality of the brew, particularly when preparing high gravity beers and cold-pitched lagers. Starters are also used to increase the biomass and vitality of yeast with low cell counts or yeast packs that are nearing expiration.

“We were seeing homebrewers skip the step of making a starter because the process was very time-consuming and intimidating,” said founder and owner Mark Schwarz. “But it’s an important function in brewing because it creates an environment for the yeast to become metabolically stronger, which leads to better fermentation and therefore better beer. So now with Propper Starter™, brewers can take their beers to the next level.”
Extract Kits of the Month

We are letting you decide which of our 51 Extract kits is your kit of the month. Stop in and we will discount whatever kit you choose by our standard 15%
 

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.

Class

A Work in Progress, but actually moving now! 

               BREWERY TAPROOM

      November saw a major disaster as our project was RED TAGGED by the city of Lakewood. We were told that someone called in about the work our building owner was doing to help us bring our restrooms up to ADA standards. We were unaware of the need to apply for a permit in order to improve an existing bathroom. The floors had the ancient tiles removed and a beautiful ceramic tile installed, the old plastic wainscot was being replace with tile as well. Grab Bars, new sink, toilet, mirrors and fan/light were all being updated. Even a baby changing station was being added. All this came to a screeching halt that day. It has been a month and we are still working at getting approvals from the city, West Metro and paying fines & penalties for our ignorance. As I mentioned before, "THIS TOO SHALL PASS!!!". We are re-grouping and doggedly determined to move forward very soon.
     On the bright side the Brewhouse landed in the US and has been unloaded and brought by rail to Denver. Friday the 30th I received a call telling us that the smaller 20' container had cleared customs and was ready for delivery. I scheduled it for Tuesday the 4th. Once it arrives we have 2 hours to unload, after which additional fees begin to accrue for having the truck and driver sitting any longer. Luckily having the best Landlord/building owner you could ask for, he is letting me use an empty unit to temporarily store everything. This will make the unloading much easier with the large open space and taller ceilings. We will be able to use our forklift to lift the crafts out of the container and directly into the warehouse. Once inside and out of the weather, we have room to tilt up all the tanks and arrange at our leisure. The second larger 40' container should arrive a few days later, which gives us a break in-between and helps schedule the man-power needed and time. I'll post pictures of our shiny new toys when they arrive!

       With the end of another year almost here, I wanted to express my sincere thanks for all the encouragement, kind words, advice, help, friendship and loyalty each and everyone of you have offered us. Truly this has been my strength, and I cannot tell you what a major difference the brewing community has made in this effort to bring yet another Local Craft Brewery for each and every one of you to gather and enjoy with us. Looking forward to a Grand Opening with all of you in the new year. I noticed the other day that Lakewood will be celebrating it's 50th anniversary in 2019 and we are proud and excited to be a part of this great city. 

      As always we will be closed on Christmas Day to spend with friends, family and loved ones, as we hope all of you will as well. 

CHEERS!!
Tom
