Toasty malt flavor, dark red color, citrus and pine hops.
This is the base recipe for my house beer. I designed it to be what I'm always in the mood to drink. Toasty, nutty, almost burnt malt flavors, dark red color, clean yeast variety, and well-hopped with an emphasis on citrus and pine.
Most batches I change up some way; I alter the hops or add a half pound of dextrose or a little bit of rye or some dark Munich, etc. But this the reference point that I work from.
It's a partial mash; I like short brew days.
