    Suggestions for table saison

    Despite several brew day issues (such as a clogged CFC on my grainfather) which led to an overnight cooling period and forgetting to aerate the wort, the beer turned out as a simple but very serviceable table beer. (Note: I did add a 1/2 oz of EKG at 5 min as suggested by bucketnative). The...

    Festbier Bee Cave Brewery Oktoberfest Ale

    I brewed this on the 1st of April using Nottingham and subbing in Crystal 20 for the Caravienne due to availability and fermented at 58ºF in a basement waterbath. Just sampled this morning and the OG dropped from 1.062 to 1.015 in 10 days and tasted pretty good to me. Don't know if I will be...

    Beers for wedding in PA

    While I recognize (and apologize) for initially posting this in the wrong place, the feedback that I have gotten from the members in this forum far outweighs that which I have received from the commercial beer forum. Thanks again for you suggestions and opinions, they are much appreciated! Cheers

    Beers for an August wedding in PA

    I have been tasked with selecting commercial offerings to satisfy the palettes of the nuptial attendees and I do not take this responsibility lightly. While I could opt for the easy route and choose beers of which I am familiar with on this coast, that would violate my principles and ethics as...

    Beers for wedding in PA

    I appreciate all the responses to the post, regardless of interpretation! ECBrew was correct in that my intent was in asking for recommendations of commercially available brews. While I would love to provide my own beers, there is no way that I would be transporting them cross-country. I...

    Beers for wedding in PA

    Thanks for the feedback. Unfortunately I can not assume that they are beer-geeks like me so I need to create options that will cover a wide audience. I think having a solid PA would allow for a more aggressive IPA. I am thinking that a nice hef/wit/saison would allow people to try something new...

    Beers for wedding in PA

    I am helping out my fiancée's family to figure out beers for her brothers wedding in Lewisburg Pennsylvania in August. I am a west coaster and am not really familiar with the regional brews out there. They are looking for 3-4 options to go with a keg of Yuengling (grooms request). I am thinking...

    Anchor Summer Ale clone

    My girlfriend was a big fan of that beer last summer. I am no expert, but your reasoning seems sound to me. Please post your final recipe and how it worked out. Good luck and happy brewing! Cheers!
