Welcome to Grain and Grape
We're a brewing and winemaking supply business in Yarraville in Melbourne and have been operating for over 25 years. We specialize in all grain brewing homebrewing but cater to brewers and winemakers from beginners to experts. Education and customer service are vital components of the business. We run weekly brewing demonstrations, spend heaps of time face to face with brewers, are involved in events and organizations such as the Australian National Homebrewing Conference and Homebrew 101 during Good Beer Week and the Independent Brewers Association and their Craft Beer Industry Association Conference.
We supply Craft Breweries with complete systems based around Speidel 500 and 200 litre Braumeisters, tanks, heat exchangers, Sommer Mills in addition to Wyeast and White Labs liquid yeast cultures, crown seals and a range of general brewing products.
Wineries and small commercial cider producers can be supplied with Speidel Apple mills, hydro presses and a range of tanks.
Oscar recently visited Japan and dropped past Two Rabbits Brewery, who have just opened their doors and are using a Speidel Braumeister 500L system they bought through Grain and Grape, here are his thoughts...
When chilling using the Braumeister Plus remember to connect the Cooling water in from the bottom and out from the top. This reduces cooling time by over 50%.
Also, as with any cooling system, a two stage cooling procedure is much more efficient than a single stage one, especially if ground water is warmer than desired fermentation temperature.
You can buy one here.
Some nice images and some info on the new model Braumeister:
