Beer Making Information

New Items at Maltose Express:
Here are a few of the new products we have in stock:
Azacca hops, local Monroe Cascade and Zeus hops.
Fast Ferment Conical Fermenter from Fast Rack
Cider Making Equipment Kit
Cider House Select Cider Kits from Brewers Best including: Apple, Cherry, Spiced Apple, Pear, Mixed Berry, Blueberry, Strawberry Pear and Raspberry Lime.
We have several new products including new 3 gallon kegs and new 5 gallon Stainless Steel soda kegs from Italy. These kegs are made of high quality stainless steel to NSF standards. We inspected the kegs made in India and did not like the poppet valves being used which made it hard to push on the disconnects. We also looked at the Chinese kegs but these are made of low quality stainless steel and eventually rust, so we chose to sell the higher quality and more expensive Italian kegs.
Maltose Express has started selling 1 gallon batches of some of our recipes. These are available in extract with specialty grain and all grain formats.
We also have a nice one gallon equipment kit for those of you who want to make one gallon batches.
We have an 8 gallon stainless steel pot from Bayou Classic that comes with a false bottom, bazooka screen and attached thermometer and ball valve.
Please check out our on line store for details on the new items:
