Recipe #34: Chinook Wet Hop Saison (Batch #2014.30)

Rounding out the end of the year with a brewing marathon. No empty fermenter for the New Year! At least that's the goal. I have 4 empties right now so we'll see if I can squeeze in 4 brewdays in the next week and a half...hard to do but not impossible. I'm trying to squeeze … Continue reading Recipe #34: Chinook Wet Hop Saison (Batch #2014.30)

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)

I hated that beer. Sometimes completely … Continue reading Recipe #23: Chinook Rye Belgo IPA (Batch #2014.18)

2014 Hop Harvest at Stillpoint Farms (Grain-to-glass collection #2)

When I started this blog almost a year ago, I had a few goals in mind. First, I needed a place to keep all my homebrew content. I am not the best at note taking so I thought if I started a blog it would make me more honest, and I would have a resource to … Continue reading 2014 Hop Harvest at Stillpoint Farms (Grain-to-glass collection #2)

Recipe #16: Chinook and Cascade English IPA (Batch #2014.13)

There are going to be several IPA posts in the coming months as I try to dial in an IPA recipe that uses Chinook hops. I'll be trying out a few different grain additions in these beers and keeping the hops a little simple. The hop additions for these beers will not be what people … Continue reading Recipe #16: Chinook and Cascade English IPA (Batch #2014.13)

Recipe #2: Chinook Belgian IPA (Batch #2013.19)

The second recipe in this blog is basically a continuation of the first recipe, in that it used the yeast cake from the Citra Saison. This is a “Belgian IPA”…which, in my opinion, is an odd style distinction. It seems to me that breweries will call any hoppy ale, regardless of malt bill or yeast used … Continue reading Recipe #2: Chinook Belgian IPA (Batch #2013.19)
