I brewed a batch of St. James the Greater last night with one "modification":

I made it more of a session pale ale vs. an IPA. I was looking to do a session pale ale for the summer and I've followed this thread since I found it and...since I wasn't really being inspired to come up with a recipe I went with St. James the Greater -- plus, he's my son's Confirmation namesake (his greatgrandfather was also named James).

Anyway, brewday went off without too many glitches -- I did forget to add the Irish Moss so I have a LOT of trub in the primary that got past my strainer. A little under my target OG but not anything to complain about. I went with 1272 for the yeast.

Of course, I didn't think about pictures until I was done...

For those that may be interested, here's my partial mash (BIAB, mash at 154) recipe:

I love this idea so much!

I've always wanted to do a steinbier and call it "Peter".

BK, what are you using for your brewing data sheets? Also, do you have any of the excel source files you care fo share?

Beer is the mind-killer. Beer is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my beer. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see it's path. When the beer has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.

I'm thinking this may be a good idea for those who grow hops (like me) and have leftovers that they don't use. Cascade is what I grow most of but sometimes have leftover sterling or Williamette.

My brewlog is from braukaiser.com

I also use Kaiser's efficiency spreadsheet for every brew to monitor my system. I highly recommend both those logs.

Awesome work everyone. Keep up the brewing!

As I sit here drinking a Saint Matthew I had a daydream about how these recipes must have come together.

I envisioned the Lord of Malt preaching the glory of his majestic grain bill sent down from above. On his travels he meet the Hopostles each with their own sacred spice which when paired with his grain and the spirit of the holy yeast brought on a feeling of jubilation.
