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 ...

Orange American Hefeweizen II, 2008

Sunday, October 5th, 2008

After brewing my first orange hefeweizen about two months ago I wanted to fine tune the recipe. This time I used sterling hops instead of cascade to reduce the biterness. Some people mentioned it was pretty bitter (not a bad thing for me). I had originally set out to replicate the ...

The Eugene City Brewery has a honey orange wheat beer that inspired me to brew this. This beer is much heavier in flavor and body, which I ended up liking better. You can still drink a ton of it one setting, and it was perfect for my bachelor party. ...

Barley Wine, 2008 Recipe

Sunday, August 10th, 2008

I will brew Barley Wine every spring so it is ready by winter. Next time I will try using champagne yeast a few days into the primary fermentation to get the final gravity down. Extra hops would help give it a more awesome bitter flavor. A full wort boil ...
