Well damn, it’s been almost a month since my last post.  I had been on a pretty good roll too, but sometimes life takes over. So to get everyone back up to speed, the last time we brewed was for Lambic #2 which was a split batch with a friend from Brewmasters of Alpharetta.  Since […]

I’ve done a few Irish Red’s over the past few years.  This will be recipe number four.  I’ve decided to clean up the grain bill a bit this time as when I originally designed it I was in kitchen sink mode.  I don’t know what it is about getting ambitious late at night on a work […]

So, I’ve been feeding a Lacto D. starter for a few weeks now in anticipation of brewing a Berliner Weiss.  Having to prepare a room for the new nursery has been eating up spare time, but it’s good to keep mom happy!  Since this was a shorter brew plan, I decided to tackle it the […]

Well, it was a busy weekend with beautiful weather and lots to do.  I had planned to fire up the big system and brew a full 10 gallon batch, but it just didn’t work out.  I did, however, manage to get the small system going in the kitchen and filled my empty 3 gallon Better […]

This past Saturday night, I ended up with the house to myself while the girls had a sleepover at a friends.  Of course I had honey-do’s to finish and I had an itch to go see The Mechanic (which was pretty good), but what I really wanted was to knock out a batch of beer. […]

Yesterday, I brewed my first Lambic… and dove in feet first with a traditional turbid mash technique. Borrowing notes from the Burgundian Babble Belt, Mike T’s blog and The Liddil Lambic Lesson I did the following recipe and mash schedule: Thanks to Shelby from Final Gravity for stopping by and lending a hand (and sharing […]

With all of the holidays coming and going along with the increased needs of work and home, it’s been a bit harder to hide out in the garage for half a day firing up the old brew rig. So, I put together a small 2 gallon mash tun (found it discounted at Target too) and […]

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 […]

Munich Helles #1 – 8th Circle of Helles

Historical reference article. On November 21, 2010 I brewed my second decoction mash, a Munich Helles.  This was a single decoction with a fairly standard grain bill for the style.  Simple and clean was the thought behind this one. Here is the recipe:

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 […]
