I'd love to find a recipe for Bellerose Biere Blonde Extra. Is anyone familiar with this beer?
I've read that they use hops "from three continents." It's a blonde biere de garde style but
reminds me m...

I'm making the leap to a Pils this weekend and had a few questions about FWH.First, here's the
recipe, which is pretty much right out of "Brew Classic European Beers At Home." It's the
Hacker Pschorr ...

Can anyone recommend a good alternative for White Labs' French Ale yeast? I've used it in place
of 001 twice in a blond ale recipe and it is great. I like the very subtle ester profile that

I had the same thoughts about honey, thinning and drying out the beer. After reading other
posts and thinking it over a bit, I believe I will leave it as-is. If it attenuates out, it
will end up at ar...

Yesterday, I brewed my first BIAB brew which was intended to be an IPA. It went smoothly until
it was time to pitch the yeast and I took an OG sample. I expected it to be around 1.056 OG but
it only c...

Totally agree in that it is much like a dortmunder. I was thinking 0.5 lb Munich but any
suggestions as to the 2-row and pils ratio? I was thinking 5lbs each? I'm pretty confident on
the hop schedule ...

I'm working on a recipe for Sierra's Summerfest. I'm sticking with the malts and hops listed on
their website. Does anyone have any suggestions as to mash temp and hop schedules?

I'm sure this question has come up before and I just didn't come across it. I just got a burner
and large kettle so I can do full-wort boils now. I don't have the equipment to do a full-mash,
but do h...

Ok, last night I took a Brix reading and it was just under 5. According to the calculator on
brewers friend, my final calculated gravity is around 1.008. Original Brix reading was 12,
final 5. I'd say...

I have some questions regarding bottling a Pils. This brew was my first Pils so I'm learning as
I go. I used 34/70 yeast and fermented it at ~45-48F for 3.5 weeks, at which time I dropped the
temp to ...
