I have brewed 2 beers I am not so wild about, my first couple of mediocre brews. One is a slightly too sweet - not attenuated enough - stout and one is a slightly too bitter IPA. The IPA has a single type of hop so has a one dimensional hop flavor. Blended though the result is great!!
The stout I have is fresh and I have a full 5 gallons, but only maybe 2 or so gallons of the IPA. I am considering brewing another IPA specifically to blend with the stout once this one is finished. I am slightly conflicted at what to do, recipe-wise.
So how do you blend your beers? And if you wanted a black and tan blend what would you brew for the tan part? I am kind of excited actually about this as it opens up some pretty cool opportunities for unusual beers.
