Recipe #35: Falconer’s Flight Saison (Batch # 2015.02)

In 2015, I'm continuing my tradition of hoppy saisons. This year we are going to touch on a bunch of hops that I haven't utilized yet (as well as a bunch of experimental hops). To name a few upcoming hops: Equinox, NZ Sticklebract, Calypso, Waimea, and several others. Going to be fun. This is the … Continue reading Recipe #35: Falconer’s Flight Saison (Batch # 2015.02)

Recipe #33: Moteuka Abbey Ale #2 (Batch #2014.29)

This beer ended up being my second to last brew (sadly) of 2014. I did not hit my ATF limit of 200 gallons (which is my goal every year...maybe 2015 will hit the limit). Rounding out a really productive year this good beer, Moteuka Abbey Ale #2. Well, it's probably pretty obvious that this is … Continue reading Recipe #33: Moteuka Abbey Ale #2 (Batch #2014.29)

Recipe #32: Wakatu Saison (Batch #2014.28)

Technically, this is my first post of 2015. So Happy New Year Gregorian calendar users! This is an elaboration on the Galaxy saisons I've been doing. I'm going to tweak this recipe with respect to hops and yeast and some grain bill substitutions as a sort of blank slate for different experiments. My hope is … Continue reading Recipe #32: Wakatu Saison (Batch #2014.28)

Recipe #31: Galaxy Saison with Blaugies Yeast #3 – Hop Stand (Batch #2014.26)

This post was accidentally released before it was ready, sorry for the confusion to the few of you that saw it in the incomplete state. Still working on this one, even though it is probably getting incredibly boring. I'm returning to the recipe I used in Recipe #19,This will be the last one of these … Continue reading Recipe #31: Galaxy Saison with Blaugies Yeast #3 – Hop Stand (Batch #2014.26)

Recipe #30: Mandarina Bavaria Saison (Batch #2014.27)

Another beer post, hooray! Even though this is yet another hoppy saison, this beer represents a huge deviation from my standard protocol. First, the grain bill is wildly different than previous batches. I am gong to start moving into more complicated / interesting grain bills than I have before. I used to use a variety … Continue reading Recipe #30: Mandarina Bavaria Saison (Batch #2014.27)

Recipe #27: Belgian Brown Saison #2 (Batch #2014.24)

This is a version of the Brown Saison I made a month or so ago. Dialing in a few recipes is an objective of mine so I can have these beers to lean on and play with for an indefinite period of time stretching off into the future. These "Brown saisons" are basically Special B … Continue reading Recipe #27: Belgian Brown Saison #2 (Batch #2014.24)

Recipe #26: Chinook Rye Belgo IPA with 20% Rye (Batch #2014.23)

Wow, I'm sorry I've been neglecting the blog lately. Two weeks without a post. There is so much happening right now, in the past few weeks, I just haven't had time to update. The consequence is that I have six beer recipes that will go up in the next couple of weeks. I'll get back … Continue reading Recipe #26: Chinook Rye Belgo IPA with 20% Rye (Batch #2014.23)

Recipe #23: Chinook Rye Belgo IPA (Batch #2014.18)

If I'm being honest, and I should be, I was so disappointed with how the Chinook and Cascade Engligh IPA turned out (even though my tasting panels showed it was a fine beer) that I completely ditched that recipe rather than tweak it into something I think is good. I hated that beer. Sometimes completely … Continue reading Recipe #23: Chinook Rye Belgo IPA (Batch #2014.18)

Recipe #22: Galaxy Saison with Blaugies Yeast #2 (Batch #2014.17)

Sorry about the delay in posts, I try to post weekly but there's been a lot going on. This means that I've had less time to write and so my backlog is building up. Hopefully I can power through a few posts in September and get back on schedule. Still dialing this Galaxy saison in. This … Continue reading Recipe #22: Galaxy Saison with Blaugies Yeast #2 (Batch #2014.17)

Recipe #19: Galaxy Saison with Brasserie de Blaugies Yeast (Batch #2014.14)

So in my last post, I wrote about a saison I made with my normal house saison yeast, the Saison Dupont strain (Galaxy Saison with Dupont Yeast). I have been talking with people about their saison yeast preferences and people do not like the Dupont strain for a variety of reasons. People complain about it … Continue reading Recipe #19: Galaxy Saison with Brasserie de Blaugies Yeast (Batch #2014.14)
