Home brew equipment supply in Iceland
This page tries to cover sources, domestic and foreign for various
pieces of equipment and ingredients. When I set this up, I was basically operating in a vacuum. Now, there's a fermentation society going strong.
Check out Fágun.is
for the forums of the icelandic home brew community. Icelandic only. (Also jogurt, cheese and bread)
|Malt, Hops and Yeast
||Ölvisholt sells malt and hops to home brewers. Fágun has the details. This the cheapest way
to get ingredients here, but their selection isn't quite as board, and they're not really a retail operation. You need to be brewing all grain.
- hopshopuk.com (My
regular, totally verified)
- humle.se They've
replied to some enquiries, but I've never ordered
|Fermenters, hydrometers, cappers, caps, airlocks
|Europris and Áman Both these shops are
catering to wine makers. You can buy hopped flavoured malt
extract tins here if you really really want. UpdateEuropris have gotten out of this market. |anyone you like
||Theoretically, Vífilfell, but they wouldn't sell me any.
||Ebay, depends how much you want to pay. I got four pin lock
kegs, delivered, after taxes, for ~5,000kr each. You can buy
new ones, but after shipping, things could get very very
||Ball lock kegs are not available in iceland. When Egils stopped using them,
the entire stock was recycled. Unfortunate, but just how it goes.
||Byko, Húsasmiðjan for generics at higher prices. Vörukaup
if you know what you're looking for at cheaper prices. Also Landvélar
||kolsyra.is and ISAGA.
Kolsyra will fill ny bottle that's tested, and will test for
~4000 and fill for 300/kg. ISAGA wants you to be on their
bottle rental program. Gastec in Höfði can sell pressure
||Regulators you can buy overseas, I got one from ebay, just
make sure it has european/uk/australian fittings. American
home brew shops will not have useful regulators
||Updatekolsyra.is in Kopvogur actually has fittings that means they
can fill bottles with american connectors on them. So you can in theory at
least, buy an empty bottle and reg from the states.
|Quick disconnects for kegs
||Presumably Vífelfell or whoever maintains bar operations?
have good prices on pinlock parts and gaskets and pieces and
are quite happy to post regular mail to iceland.
