Some of my favorite beers come from St.Arnold's in Houston (hometown!!) and I have been trying to hit the nail on the head as to what that distinctive St.Arnold's taste is... I think it has to do with their yeast, which is a proprietary blend. I read somewhere on here (doing a search) that Brock @ St.Arnold's will share recipes for his brew if you email him. I did, but he said they were moving breweries so he couldn't help me out for 3 months. I asked for the Divine Reserve no.9 recipe.
I looked around on here for an extract recipe for any St.Arnold's brews and came up with nothing. I did find some chatter about it, but nothing special.
For those who don't know much about Divine Reserve series:
No.9 was an Imperial Pumpkin Stout sitting @ 11% ABV. It tasted amazing and one of the best beers i've ever had.
I am looking to either recreate this or try my hand at one of St.Arnold's other beers. Brown Ale, Amber Ale, Christmas Ale, Winter Stout or DR#9.
Austin Homebrew Supply carries various St.Arnold's kits. I was hoping to try either the Brown or Christmas. St.Arnold's Winter Stout was amazing, but alas... AHS doesn't have that one listed.
Has anyone ever used AHS for St.Arnold's kits? or ever replicated one? and could I get the recipe?
