hello local homebrew brothers I am trying to decide which tastey homebrew I will be doing next. I want your guys opinion. Typically I like beers that do not take too long to age or ferment so barley wines and mead recipes im not interested in.

I would really appreciate it if some of you would share with me your favorite homebrew to make and the recipe. ohh and i cant do lagers. keep recipes to 5 gallons. gracias

mike from sd

Hefeweizens are perfect for this situation. hb_99 and I have posted recipes literally dozens of times, but it won't hurt once more:

6# wheat DME
12 IBU Hallertau hops (probably ~0.75 - 1 oz)
Hefeweizen yeast (I like Wyeast 3068)

Simple, good, and fast.

I have been experimenting with only 5 lbs wheat DME (and variations of 1 extra light DME and 4 wheat) and 7 HBUs...lighter flavor and a tad sweeter...you'll want to overcarbonate these a little for the summertime...

Our house session beer is a Fat Tire Clone. It's an amber ale with mild flavors, good smoothness, not too hoppy. I don't have it on my computer, but I can type it out if you're interested.

My husband's favorite beer is this one:

Left hand Sawtooth Ale

-Yeast: 1098 British - WYeast

Grain Bill:
1lb 40L Crystal
1/2 lb Victory (toasted)
3lbs Pale Extract
3lbs Munich Extract

Hop Bill:
1.5 oz Fuggle (60 min boil)
1.5 oz Golding (15 min boil)
1 oz Golding (end of boil)

Mash Schedule:
Steep grains in water 15-20 minutes at about 120-180 degrees.
Remove and add malt extracts.
Bring to boil. Follow hop schedule.

Let cool to under 80 degrees and pitch yeast. Aerate well! Use the 1-2-3 method.
Other yeast you could use are: Safale s-04 dry yeast, or any British strain. I like the Safale.



If you let me know what type of beer you are looking for, that would help. I have lots of recipes that take 5 weeks to be drinkable. I don't like wheat beers, fruit beers, or hefes, so the others will have to help you out there!

Here's my favorite.

Good luck getting the Morgan's Master Blend tho- they don't export to the US anymore, so this'll only do you good if you're planning a trip Down Under.

Been trying to replicate it for awhile now..... God I miss that beer.

I was pretty impressed with Brewers Best Continental Pilsner. Yeah I know, it's a kit, but until I get the confidence to do it and find a place where I can order individual "parts,".....well, that's my story and I'm sticking to it.

This recipe sounds good to me.

Where do you get the "3lbs Munich Extract" from, if you don't mind me asking? I'm having a bit of a problem finding it.

Thank for your help, Lorena
