Would You Like Some Yeast Nutrient?

I started helping my Dad brew beer at age 10. He helped his Grandfather do the same during prohibition, so I come from a long line of home brewers. I started to brew seriously in the early 80’s when there were almost no craft beers available. The only dark beers available then were Guinness or Michelob Dark. The best beer I could get was Ballantine XXX, a Pale Ale (almost IPA) style that actually had a moderate hop profile. After I retired, I decided I needed beer money so I came to work at Great Fermentations. My favorite part about working here is to help the beginning brewers learn how to create great beers.

Fun Fact: I was the 1st certified beer judge in the state of Indiana (1986).
Fun Fact #2: I speak fluent Spanish and little bit of English.


Due to the recent surge in COVID cases across the country, especially in our home state of Indiana, starting Friday November 20th we are switching to curbside pickup and online shipping service only. No customers will be allowed in the store. We will maintain the same store hours during this phase. We’re trying to do our part in helping get the virus under control, and we appreciate your understanding. Follow the link in our bio for more info about the curbside pickup process.
Kegging day for our Nordic Smoked beer. Thanks to @sugarcreekmaltco for the malt and @crazyhorsehops for the hops!

Total of 11oz of dry hops added at high krausen. The yeast has dropped out a ton on this beer after 5 days, but it is still hazy 🤪🍻👌. Should be kegged, carbonated, and ready to drink by this Friday (8 day turnaround for an 8.5%)!
Test batch for our next IPA kit. The smell in here is amaaaaaaazing 😍🍺🍻
