    Attempt at a Petrus Aged Red

    Has anyone ever tried to make a Petrus Aged Red? It's probably my wifes favorite beer ever and I'm looking for brownie points to support brewing. I have 10 gallons of an oud bruin clone that I added cherries to about a year ago. Is there something that I can make to blend with this that...

    Hot peach chile ale

    I visited one of my favorite areas of colorado recently and, of course, went to the local brewery, the Dillon Dam Brewery. I've always enjoyed both the beer and food there, but this time they had 2 beers that really piqued my interest and thereafter my palate. One was a chile beer that...

    Accidental sour fail and success?

    Here's what's up: I decided to brew a batch of beer with my home grown hops straight from the bine. I collected one entire columbus bine just for this 5 gallon batch. I ended up picking in the morning and brewing around noon. I saved about a pound of the fresh hops for an IPA I was putting in...

    wild hops help

    Hello, out there. I'm in need of a bit of help. I found a cache of wild hops here in Colorado Springs and there's more than I can deal with. They smell just like The Columbus hops I grew this year. They look like they'll be ready in a little over a week. Locals? Suggestions?

    Looking for a little input...

    Hi everyone, it's been a while since I've been on here, and i've run into something. I was doing a large all grain batch of Old Jubilation clone. When I finished rinsing the grain there was still more sugars coming out, so I since I had more water I decided to run another 5 gallons through...

    Good deal?

    I came across someone selling 2 50# bags of Carafoam and 2 50# bags of caramel 120 L for $20. They come crushed. Is this as good a deal as it seems to me? And what's the best use for these grains? I'm a newb with all-grain, I've only done one Imperial stout. Thanks!

I need to know where to look for recipes, or perhaps a few recipe suggestions, to use all this stuff I got for $15. Here's the list as labeled...
