Up until that point we had offered a small selection of beer kits, a couple of hops and one ale yeast. Fast forward to today and we have completely renovated (there are even more changes since the posting of that blog) our store. We have also quadrupled our hardware section, expanded into all fresh ingredients for beer making, and now include free, fast milling on all grain. There is no limit to the kind of beers that can be made from the ingredients we have at KJ. Everything is fresh, and competitively priced.
All of us who work at KJ are home brewers ourselves and love to answer any and all questions our customers come up with. Everything is available both in-store at our retail location in Guelph, and on our online shop.
We take great pride in delivering the freshest, best kept hops possible to our customers. All hops purchased on our online shop are packaged in high quality vacuum sealed bags stored permanently at 0°C. You can be sure that the hops you buy will be fresh and deliver the exact attributes you are looking for! The current crop year for each variety is listed in the description, though the photos may be from previous years.
Our grains are sourced from a wide range of high end reputable maltsters. These companies include Weyermann, OiO, Simpsons, Chateau, Castle, Patagonia, and Crisp. These same grains are used by some of the best craft breweries in Canada (including our friends at Royal City!). Our grains are always fresh and stored in ideal conditions. We package them in resealable bags, and are more than happy to mill them (for free!) upon request.
Buy them by the pound, or save money and buy 55lb bags!
