Since 1991, The Brewmeister has been supplying Sacramento home wine makers with a wide array of wine making supplies and equipment. Erik Schmid, owner and founder of the Brewmeister, has been home brewing since 1990, has experience making several varietals of wine, and has taught home wine making classes for over 10 years in the greater Sacramento area. Erik has participated in several local and state home wine making competitions. He most recently won Double Gold – Best in Class in the Tempranillo category in the 2014 State Fair Home Wine Competition.
Throughout the year, we carry many home wine making supplies that include different yeast strains (such as Lalvin, Fermenis, and Red Star), acids, sulfites, testing equipment, chemicals, fermentation and storage equipment, barrel and equipment cleaning supplies, corks, bottles, and malolactic cultures. We also supply wine making equipment for bottling and corking all year long.
During harvest season, we offer crusher stemmers and presses. In the late summer and early fall, we also carry specialized fermenters and storage vessels of different types and sizes.
We will also special order larger equipment each year in April. Ask to be added to our newsletter mailing list to get notified when we gear up for our annual order. If you would like to purchase equipment you don't see here, please send us an email with what you are looking for and we will try and source it for you.
Our friendly and knowledgeable staff is a recognized and trusted resource for home wine making. For those just getting started with home wine making, we provide informational and fun classes throughout the summer on a rotating schedule at each of our locations. We also stock a collection of specialty how-to books and style guides for home wine making (not to mention mead, ciders, beer, and cheese-making). Just meeting our staff and seeing out extensive inventory is worth a trip to one of our convenient locations!
We have offices in West Sacramento, Folsom and Roseville. The Brewmeister serves people all over including Sacramento, Elk Grove, Davis, etc. and Northern California in our stores and nationwide through online sales.
