Holiday Spice Ale – Ready in a month

Monday, November 2nd, 2009

A lot of breweries sell a “winter beer” or “Christmas beer”, and they’re typically high-gravity, with complex flavors. Our brewing group wanted something that was exactly the opposite: a low-gravity, easy-to-drink beer that would complement our turkey with cranberry sauce. This is pretty similar to most “holiday spice beer” recipes ...

Recipe OktoberFEAST Ale AG (5.5 US gal.)

Thursday, October 15th, 2009

With fall just around the corner, cooler temperatures and shorter days are on there way. This calls for a maltier, less hoppy, less zingy beer to satisfy us on those cool evenings around the fire. As the temperatures go down, the ABV of seasonal beers goes up. ...

This is pretty close to Spaten. Target Volume (Gallons) 5 Total Cost $33.35 Yield (ounces) 630 Cost per 12 oz bottle $0.64 Boil Time 60 min GRAINS Pounds Points/Gal Total Points Cost Extra Light ...

English Pub Bitter II, ESB – 2008

Sunday, December 21st, 2008

This was the second attempt at an English Pub Bitter, and it is actually more like an Extra Special Bitter (ESB) this time given the IBUs at 43+. I am very happy with the results, the beer is definitely bitter, but not flooring. It has a nice malty flavor, a ...

Amarillo and Brown Sugar IPA, 2008

Sunday, October 12th, 2008

Amarillo hops impart a citrus grapefruit note to the aroma and flavor of the beer they are used in. This IPA recipe highlights the Amarillo hops and creates an IPA that is fairly mellow compared to some of the stronger IPAs. This recipe is quite complex and deviates a bit from ...
