It’s been entirely too long since I’ve updated the blog.  Having a new addition to the family last August has necessitated some priority shifts.  There have been a few brewing related projects that I need to update here such as our lambic barrel project.  For now, I’ll post about a beer that I just brewed […]

This was the second beer that I would be preparing for New Year’s Eve.  Since I already had a light hoppy offering, I wanted to balance the taps with something darker and a little richer.  My brother and I had been tossing around the idea of something with vanilla and oatmeal so I decided to do a 10 […]

One of the things I like to do from time to time is a side by side comparison of different brewing techniques.  The goal, of course, is to perform the experiment while limiting the change to only one variable.  In this case, I’ll be comparing primary fermentation results from three different Brettanomyces strains.  The local shop only […]

Fourth of July weekend was the perfect time to get another brew done.  My brother was in to visit from Kansas, so I let him pick the style du jour.  We settled on another round of saisondue to the fact that the experimental batch was almost gone and my temperature controlled fermentation freezer was out […]

For the past two weeks, I’ve been working on a yeast propagation project for this saison.  It started when I cultured up the dregs from a bottle of The Bruery’s Saison De Lente (which is a very good Saison in my opinion).  This stepped up to around an 800mL worth of starter.  Upon completion, I […]

Recently I’ve been reading quite a bit of the blog The Mad Fermentationist.  Particularly of interest were the three dark saisons that he has done.  I’ve often thought that the farmhouse ale style has a lot of room to play with different ingredient combinations. So, this recipe draws from his Fig Honey Anise Dark Saison […]

Posting for historical reference before I post tasting notes. Back in October, our homebrew club Final Gravity Craft Brewers, decided to pursue a Westvleteren 12 clone as a group brew.  We decided to use the Pious Traditional recipe from this post on Homebrewtalk.  I did a 5 gallon batch ahead of time to proof out […]
