I've brewed the Brickwarmer Holiday Red Ale, twice. Last year we fly-sparged the batch and came out at 1.048 pre-boil gravity. We boiled extra and finally got to 1.060. This year, same recipe but doubled. Pre-boil gravity 1.053. Batch-sparged this brew. Easily pulled 11.5 gallons at 1.060 O.G, into the fermenter. We still can't get what Midwest Supply shows as the OG for this batch. Flavor is very good but the OG match seems off. Inputting the grain-bill into my recipe planner shows a projected 1.053OG. Is the recipe OG, for this kit in error?Overall, this supply house has all the Homebrewer may need from the first brew to the 100th.
Pros:- Very good selection. I've bought many kits and they were well packed, labeled, and had good instructions.- Prices are just alright, but I only buy during sales.- Quick replies to messages.- Owned by Northern Brewer so kits are identical, but for some reason, Midwest is cheaper.Cons:- Shipping can be slow. They do say to wait 3-5 days, but I really don't get why it takes so long, unless they are getting hundreds of orders every day and was short staffed.
Well organized and super customer service. My husband found what he needed. Not too visible from the road but directions were easy to follow.
Always great service and incredibly knowledgeable staff.
Huge supply of home brewing supplies. Nice hop selection and fresh yeast.
Great people willing to share their knowledge to newbies like myself!
My last two trips to the st.Louis park location have been wasted trips. First time they were out of stock of what I went for. This time I text the number provided on website. Thomas informed me, yep we exchanged 5,10 & 20 pound CO2 tanks. I drive there with my tank to exchange. And I’m told they are out of 5 pound tanks. Customer service at its lowest. And need to work on how to maintain inventory.
Feel like a kid in a candy store. Plenty of products. knowledgeable, friendly, helpful staff. If the staff is assisting other customers, the layout of the store makes it fairly easy to find items.
I went in for the first time last week with a vague idea of hooking up a keg for making soda water, and although it's not the standard set up they normally deal with, John was still able to help me out and went above and beyond to make sure I had everything I needed to succeed. I have been back a couple times since and it has always been a fantastic experience.I don't normally write reviews, but John and everyone else here definitely deserve every one of the five stars that I'm giving them!⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
Super helpful employee that answered all of our questions!
Reasonably priced beer making supplies and very convenient online ordering. We drive here from St. Paul on a semi-regular basis because their prices are better than closer stores.
I am an avid homebrewer and love this place. I used to go to Northern Brewer in Minneapolis, but after they closed started going here. Looks like the two merged...so best of both worlds.
This place is awesome, from the helpful and welcoming staff to the huge selection of ingredients and brewing equipment my visit was 100 % satisfactory!
Midwest has great prices on brewing ingredients and the service is very good.
fantastic Customer Service..
