Organic Ingredients

Posted by Maggie on September 3, 2010

I was just in my local brewing supply store, the Oak Barrel in Berkeley.  The owner had told me that they would be getting organic ingredients.  They still don’t have anything organic.  I spoke to the owner about it again and had to convince him to try selling some organic malt extracts and specialty malts.  I told him that organic brewing is the way of the future and that no other stores in the area sell organic ingredients.  I hope that he will give some organic ingredients a try.  It would be very convenient for me.  I love that store but I want to make organic brews.

On another note, I just found out that some good friends, Geoff and Margaret, are growing cascade hops!  They are not brewers themselves.  They are more interested in gardening.  They said they will give me some hops.  This will be a nice change from the vacuum sealed hop pellets I have been using and they will be organic.
