    Berliner Weiss

    Clocking in at around 2% ABV you won't get too :drunk: on this one. My berliner has definitely become my favorite all around summer quaffer. The best part is, it is VERY cheap and easy to crank out a batch. I have entered this beer into four competitions so far. It has one second place, first...

    Spiced Winter Cider

    I wanted to make something I can take to my in-laws every year at Christmas when we visit. My father in law loves apple pie (the drink made with Everclear) so I came up with this recipe to make something like that but naturally fermented. I really like how it came out. 4 gallons of apple...

    Imperial Stout Gatos Locos Imperial Stout

    This highly successful brew will be a yearly brew for winter at my house. I have one keg on tap and another aging in a Bourbon barrel right now which will be mighty tasty when it gets cold outside. :) I brew this up in the spring so it has 6-9 months to condition before tapping. When it's ready...

    Saison du Monk

    Irish Red Ale Irish Red (1st place HBT comp)

    My house Irish Red ale. It is best after 4 months of aging, so I brew 10 gallon batches and re-brew when the first keg kicks. The key to this style is malt forward but with a roasty, dry finish. Hop flavor is barely noticeable and there is no hop aroma. If you can lager, even better, use a clean...

    I love no sparge brewing...

    My usual brew days are 6 hours. My usual brewhouse efficiency is 75% (83% to kettle). Today I tried out a new setup with my new pump. RIMS, no sparge, no chill. Dumped all 8.25 gal of water into the kettle, added my salts per the water adjustment spreadsheet assuming 8.25 gal of mash volume...

    Son of Hopinator

    I will be re-brewing my El Dictador sometime this year, and figured it'd be fun to pair it off with another award winning brew so I'm going to take Saq's Hopinator IIPA and brew it with the hops I have on hand. I decided to go with the HBT award winning Hopinator batch #3 grist, and up the...

    Finally found raw milk..

    Here in Texas I found it a bit tricky to find raw milk. There are only a handful of farms in the state licensed to sell it (and Texas is a big @$$ state, if you haven't noticed) since the Texas ag laws require special inspections and processes that are more stringent than a typical dairy farm...

    Corking your Belgian bottles with a Portuguese corker

    I have a Portuguese floor corker and wanted to cork Belgian bottles. I figured it out and figured I'd post a mini-howto here with pics so folks don't have to spend two hours scouring search engines before trying it out. You'll need a corker (duh). I already have one because I bottle a lot of...

    Dr. Pepper Stout

    So, I've been wanting to try something WEIRD because I have never done anything really WEIRD yet. But I am not trying to make hooch. So I figure why not let's throw together an honest-to-goodness real recipe, and see how far I can bend the rules and still make a drinkable beer. I give you...

    Slanting yeast

    There has been plenty of discussion of yeast slanting in various threads, and I know there are other slanters here on the forums, but I have not seen a definitive thread which walks through the process step by step. So, last time I prepared some slants I took some photos and decided to post a...
