       The store move was successful. We are pleased with the new space. Stop in to see the new laminate wood floors, ADA compliant bathroom and all the nice new displays and the (hopefully) soon to be completed huge walk-in cooler. Once the cooler is completed and the store side is completed, we will then begin the work on the brewery side. Exterior signage was moved last week and customers are finding the new store to be a pleasant upgrade. We hope to see and chat with all our faithful customers and look forward to showing you the progress as it happens.

Matthew Peetz, aka the Yeast Whisperer, has been propagating yeast before it was the cool thing to do. Like many brewers, it all started with a homebrew kit that Matthew received at this college graduation. Years later, Matthew with a partner founded Inland Island Yeast Laboratories.

New Cryo Hop Varieties
Cryo Hops® represents the most innovative hop product technology available. Utilizing
industry-leading, cryogenic processing, whole-leaf hops are separated into lupulin and
bract at extremely low temperatures. LupuLN2® is the concentrated lupulin glands of
whole hop cones containing sensitive resins and aromatic oils. LupuLN2® hop pellets
offer twice the resin content of traditional T90 pellets and should be dosed at half the
weight - the perfect addition for any juicy and resinous hop-forward recipe.

Extract Kit of the Month

**Belgian Wit**

An easy-drinking Belgian wheat ale. Coriander and Bitter Orange Peel add a slightly spicy finish, while the yeast adds a banana/clove/pepper taste. Adding a fresh orange slice is a popular way to enjoy this style.

Approx. Original Gravity: 1.049
Approx. Final Gravity: 1.013
Estimated Alcohol by Vol: 4.7%
Bitterness: 17 IBUs
Approx. Color: 5 SRM

Estimated Brew Day time: 3 hrs (including cleanup)
Total Time from Grain to Glass: At least 3 weeks

Contents of Kit:

6.5 lbs Bavarian Wheat Liquid Malt Extract (LME) 1 oz Tettnang Hops
1 oz Hallertau Hops
0.5 oz crushed Coriander Seed

1 oz Bitter Orange Peel
1 pkg SafBrew T-58 Dry Yeast
5 oz Priming Sugar
55 Bottle Caps
 

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!
        During the month of February we completed our move into the Unit I next door, and so far it's working well. The new Laminate wood floors, paint and updated restroom looks great. The Walk-in cooler is in progress and its big. 20' wide by 14' deep with 9' ceiling. Plenty of room for 20 taps on the Brewery side and six brand new LED lit, reach in doors for yeasts and hops on the Brew supply side. Last week we mounted the steel frame to the roof for the compressor and had already drilled two 4" holes thru the concrete roof panel to run the power and line set for the cooler. We could have this completed in the next week. (FINGERS CROSSED)
      After the cooler is completed comes the process of cutting the concrete floors for drains, floor sinks, catch basins and a sampling port so the effluent from the brewery can be tested as required. Our plan is to release as little into the drains as possible. Spent grain will be picked up and used for animal feed. If for any reason a batch of beer does not meet our standards, we will drain into a large palletized tote that can sent to any local farm and sprayed onto the soil as a great fertilizer/nutrient. This should allow us to greatly reduce the amount of waste water going into the local water treatment system. We hope to be environmentally good stuarts for our business, the community and the environment.

     Our electrician has begun the process of building the framework for upgraded power for the brewery. Panels with shutoffs have been mounted outside as well as another panel for the new larger capacity meter. Large diameter piping are now mounted along the roof of the building from the exterior power source to our unit. Inside we will have a 200-amp 42 circuit panel mounted inside from which all our electrical needs will be supplied. Really look forward to this upgrade as the old panel could only handle about a dozen circuits and was limited to 100-amps. In the process, on an upcoming weekend, we will schedule an outage thru Xcel energy that will shut down all power to our building for roughly 4-5 hours. We will discuss with all our neighboring tenants to discuss the timing in advance. Once the drains and electrical are completed, we will start moving in the brewery and get it assembled, so we can begin testing and brewing. Watch for updates!!
 
Cheers!!
Tom
