I do not see a "Wyeast Labs Bier de Garde Yeast" I see they list these as examples of strains to use for this style:

"Wyeast Strains:
2124 - Bohemian Lager™
3787 - Trappist High Gravity™
1388 - Belgian Strong Ale™
1762 - Belgian Abbey II™
2565 - Kölsch™
1007 - German Ale™
3711 - French Saison "

Which did you use?

I have to add this yeast strain to beersmith



I came up with this, as this is in the style of the yeast used, and more along the lines of a belgian.

The hops were off the chart in IBU's so I changed them to Brewers Gold at 1oz and BAM smack in the middle for the style, came in at 7%ABV I think the rye malt would play off the yeast which is said to promote some "Spicy" tones.

Here is a pic of the beersmith print page


FYI: This puts the recipe right smack dab in the middle of the style format. I hope you saved some yeast, because at $7+ for yeast and Cost of $~30 for supplies total, it might be hard to get people to adopt this, They could swap out any of the above stated yeasts, but then the rye malt may stand out a bit much.




Forgot to add in cherry cubes.

Looks good to me! Just one question, why did you swap the Munich malt for pilsner?

Marris otter would work better I think, if you wanted to use something other than Munich.

Glad you found the yeast btw!

The munich 20L aka Munich II was throwing the numbers out of wack, so I went with the Pilsner to keep true to the style, and the crystal 120 to get the same SRM color that was obtained with the Munich II.

I will see if I can toss the munich back in and show numbers for numbers vs the two



Here is yours:





Here is mine:

Hello Brewers!

I finally got around to brewing another version of this beer! This time, I had no Munich malt nor Bier De Garde yeast, but
I hope that it should capture the feel of the beer very well. If it doesn't make it as a "Lord of the North Ale', I think it could
do well as a "Beyond the Wall Sahti", or mayhaps a "Crow's Eye Sahti".

It looks like this:

Batch Size: 6 Gallons
Efficiency: 61%
Mash: 152F 90 Min

Maris Otter--------------------------12 Lbs
Oats---------------------------------2 Lbs
Wheat-------------------------------1.5 Lbs
Rye----------------------------------1.5 Lbs
CaraPills------------------------------1 Lbs
Crystal 20L----------------------------1 Lbs

Additions
1 Oz Crushed Dry Juniper Berries in Mash
.5 Oz Fuggle Leaf Hops 60 Min Boil
1.5 Oz Fuggle Leaf Hops 25 Min Boil
.75 Oz Crushed Dry Juniper 25 Min Boil

Yeast:
Safe Brew WB-06

The hydrometer sampled I tried had a real nice banana taste, but the Juniper berries were kinda lost, so I bought some more today and started soaking them in gin, so that I can add the extract in a couple weeks at bottling time if need be. Right now it is bubbling very slowly near the very tail end of the fermentation it would seem, and is kinda a very murky dark yellow/brown color. Sure looks like something from "beyond the wall'!

Cheers!

Alright guys! Today is bottling day! I had soaked 2 oz of juniper berries in gin for 8 days prior to today just so I could add it at bottling time

My OG was rather low, at 1.009 which should put the abv at a whopping 8.7%! The late hop additions of Fuggles gave the beer a nice "herbal" kinda bitterness without being sharp like early addition hops, and once I added the gin that had been soaking the juniper berries, it kinda made the beer "pop!". It gave it very lively freshness to help contrast with the woody earthy fuggles.

Since the gravity was lower than it should have been, I added 8 oz of maltodextrine into the bottling bucket along with 5 oz of dextrose. I am expecting around 2.6 to 2.7 volumes of c02!

Default Targaryen Ale

I just brewed a Game of Thrones themed beer yesterday for a viewing party for the season 4 premier. I'm calling Targaryen Ale. It's only my second recipe I've ever come up with, so I wasn't too experimental besides my use of beets to turn the beer red (the House Targaryen's motto is Fire and Blood). And let me tell you, it's crazy red (for the blood part of the motto). I made it fairly hoppy to represent the Fire part of the motto, it's a little cheesy, but I hope it's good.

I asked some guys at my local brewshop if they had used beets, and one guy had, said it turned out well, with the beets giving an earthy flavor. So when I was picking out hops I had the choice of going even earthier or to go another direction and give the beer a more complicated flavor. I went complicated. Here's my recipe, if anyone's interested, give me a month or so and I'll let you know if it tastes good (extract recipe):

6.6 pounds liquid Pilsen extract
1.5 pounds Vienna Malt
.5 pounds Caramel 20L
.25 pounds Carapils
1 ounce Chinook (11.6% aa)
1 ounce Ahtanum (4.6% aa)
Wyeast 1056 American Ale
1.75 pounds peeled beets

I did a 60 minute boil, added the chinook at 60 minutes, and the Ahtanum at 5, total IBUs about 57. Could have gone a bit hoppier, but some people who will

I used the lightest colored malts I could find to make it easier to turn red with beets, I probably could have gone a little darker and still had enough red from the beets.
