Experimental Hop Series #9: Jarrylo Saison (Recipe #39, Batch #2015.09)

Been falling behind on the blog lately but things have been....busy. But two posts in two day? For real? I'm now a double dad, two sons. Being a dad is one of if not the most important aspect of my personality. They will always take priority and that is unfortunate for this blog and my … Continue reading Experimental Hop Series #9: Jarrylo Saison (Recipe #39, Batch #2015.09)

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)

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)

Summary of My Experimental Hop Variety Saisons for 2014

I love hops. From my first Stone IPA back in 2001 to now I'm a devout hop head. This year, in order to increase my love and understanding of the dozens (hundreds?) of hop varieties available I decided to undergo a project and brew a series of simple saisons that highlight different hops and even … Continue reading Summary of My Experimental Hop Variety Saisons for 2014

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)

Experimental Hop Series #6: ADHA 871 Saison (Recipe #29, Batch #2014.29)

Six beers that used the same yeast, the same grain … Continue reading Experimental Hop Series #6: ADHA 871 Saison (Recipe #29, Batch #2014.29)
