Brewhouse BC

The Brewhouse Kit is an entirely new concept in homebrewing. Until now, most homemade beer has been made with concentrated malt extract syrup. The Brewhouse Kit produces all-grain microbrew style beer with the convenience of a kit. Brewed from fresh grain and hops, it is pure all-grain wort, made the same way as commercial microbrewed beers. Gentle handling preserves the delicate aromas and flavours. Crisp Pilsner, rich pale ale, malty Munich dark lager, full flavoured cream ale, luscious stout and even an incredibly light North American lager all show brilliant character.

 

 

 

Fresh grains make fresh beer: The Brew House Kit is made from 100% grain. The grains are cracked just before brewing and gently steeped in water at our custom designed German-style brew house. After the sweet wort is drawn off, it’s carefully boiled with generous amounts of hops. Then, without adding water or concentrate, we aseptically package it for maximum flavour and aroma. With our technology, we have total control over every step of the brewing process; we can even do Czech-style decoction mashing, the most technically demanding brewing in the world.

Our styles are the real microbrew-style McCoy. Sweated over by two certified beer judges-both experienced prize-winning homebrewers-and a German Quality Control scientist, these kits are as close to the described style as possible.

 

WINTERFEST ALE 

Available starting November 1st

STYLE AND HISTORY

Deep amber to copper in colour with a big hearted body, our latest seasonal beer is sure to add cheer to this Holiday season. Hop bitterness is apparent, but not aggressive. This beer boasts of fruity, estery flavours and will continue to develop and mature with aging (if bottle conditioned). Complimenting the hop character is a touch of spiciness from cinnamon and nutmeg. The spice level is moderate, but we encourage you to add spices, herbs or sugars to your personal taste.

Spice up your Winterfest
This BrewHouse Winterfest Ale has been mildly spiced in the tradition of Christmas Ales of the past. The Cinnamon and Nutmeg in this kit will contribute a gentle, aroma accent, without being overwhelming to most palletes. If you wish to create a brew with a more assertive spice note, the following suggestions will be of help. It is best to create an extract of spices, rather than adding spices directly, which can extract excess harsh flavour.

Recipe
Bring 2 litres water to a boil, add spices and boil for 10 minutes, cool and strain. Use this solution as part of the water addition to make up the volume of the kit.
Suggestions: Ginger or Nutmeg – 2 tsp. ½ oz. Dried ginger root 1 oz. Curacao orange peel 1″ Vanilla bean 2 oz. Coriander 2 grams Mace Others: Coffee at ½ lb. Per 5 gallons. Steeped, not boiled.

FOOD AND SOCIAL
It pairs extremely well with the traditional festive stuff like- roasted nuts, seasonal sweets, turkey and stuffing and of course a crackling fire.

INDIA PALE ALE

STYLE AND HISTORY

India Pale Ale was developed in England to withstand the long journey to India during colonization. The civilians and soldiers living there had no access to beer of their own, as tempertaures on the sub continent were constantly too warm for brewing. Attempts at shipping beer from England( usually the new ‘Pale’ ales that were becoming so popular) were foiled by the rocking of the waves and the high temperatures in the ships hulls, which spoiled the beer long before it reached its destination.
Back in London, a brewer named George Hodgson began brewing beer for export to India. The beer was brewed with a higher alcohol level, and higher hopping rates to preserve the beer on its journey. The beer was a success in India, and “IPA” as it came to be known, caught on in England as well and a new beer style was born! Our India Pale Ale has a copper/golden colour and medium aroma hops, with a slightly higher starting gravity and hop rates than our regular pale ale.

FOOD AND SOCIAL

The Brew House IPA is a perfect match for spicy foods and BBQ, as it has the fortitude to stand up to the ‘big food’ flavour, yet is still crisp and refreshing on the palate.
