We cracked the Cranberry Ale that I brewed earlier this winter and its the best beer I've ever brewed ! And its a dark beer too and they aren't my favorite, but its still a really good beer. Very drinkable. A good session beer.

So SHMBO wants me to brew another beer ! We've got a Corona clone bottled and a Blue Moon clone lagering. She wants something light, for the summer. Like maybe a hefe or something with apples in it.

Any ideas, guys ?

I *told* you that you would eventually come over to the dark side, brewman! Put away the Corona and do a big beefy stout or porter next!



Seriously, congrats on the killer brew. I vote for a hefe or an American wheat. Or why not Ed_Wort's apfelwein?

*laughs Yah got me, Fly ! Who knew I would like a dark beer ?

I've already got 6 gals of apfelwein aging. (See my sig.) We are kind of saving that for a winter brew and half of it is wine-ish because its a bit strong, so she wants it for special occasions. (SWHBO, remember !)

She wants a light beer for summer. I'll test drive some darker beers this fall to see what I like and brew accordingly.

So what else could I brew, tomorrow ?

I'd love to brew a Lamboise, but I don't have any raspberries.

I was kind of giving up on fruit beers until I tasted this cranberry ale. It really worked.

I asked for a recipe a couple weekends ago and you guys gave me the Blue Moon clone, which I think is going to be killer. How about one more ?

Sorry, missed the apfelwein in your sig. It's quite a list...

Do a blonde ale then, or a California common. Great summer session beers, and easy brewing.

Sorry -- one more suggestion. Do a kolsch. Mt Begbie Brewing Company (Revelstoke) has a fabulous one in bottles right now. I have seen them locally at the Coop liquor stores. Have you tried it?

I haven't tried it. Do you have a recipe ? I wonder if I could find some liquid yeast tomorrow ?

*chuckle I caught her looking at my Complete Encyclopedia of Beer the other day...

Maybe I should brew another Belgian Wit with different flavoring ? I could test another vial of my frozen yeast. I'd love to try a Belgian with some tart apples. Too bad crab apples aren't in season !

What if I brewed Blue Moon without the corriander and zest and added some apple concentrate and spice to the secondary ? Anyone done anything like this ?
