    Recipe Ideas

    I was actually leaning towards ESB with the maris otter extract before I posted this. Was just seeing if anyone else had something other than that to brew, though mine may be a bit higher in ABV for the style.

All of these things I've accumulated over the years, yes some hops will be old but always kept in my beer fridge. So with that said can you all can help me come up with. Given the LME I...

    When to add fruit?

    I have Ken Schramm's book on making mead and in it he states he adds his fruits to secondary, but I also thought I saw somewhere on here that he has since changed that and adds it to primary once the bulk of the initial fermentation is done. So I am torn between which to do, I am making a...

    Old Ale Olde Ale

    I got this recipe from a friend and modified it a bit. His recipe used Golden Promise and was all grain. I couldnt do it all grain as the grain bill was too big for my 5 gal MTL. So I partial'd it. This turned out fantastic and I didnt originally intend to put it in the whiskey barrel, that...

    Im having the Fruitcake Old Ale tonight, the first thing Ill say is...Id pay money for this! Well done! I get a nice "spiced" aroma to it, like that of the fruitcake. The taste is quite good of the fruit you used, and to me I get a bit of a tart finish which I like. So again, very nicely done...

    Tasted another one of my Spiced Bourbon Imperial Stouts, still very little carbonation (which may stay this way) the Star Anise is still very prominent in it, hoping that still goes down and mellows a bit more in the next few months. Have we set a ship date for this yet?
