    Hoppy Belgian Quad

    Hello everyone, Been quite a while since I posted anything here, but I am seeking some guidance for a Belgian quad recipe. BACKSTORY: An acquaintance of mine, who was a huge craft beer and home brew fan, passed on this past November due to a rare form of bile duct cancer. In consulting her...

    Pre-Prohibition Lager

    Hey everyone! I have never done a lager before, mainly because I have not had a basement or knowledge that California lager yeast ferments warm! The main idea/inspiration behind this brew is to get my brother-in-law (who mainly drinks Bud Light) out of his comfort zone. Instead of doing a Bud...

    Rye porter, thoughts?

    Hello everyone! Man, it has been a long time! New house, new challenges = no time for brewing. But, I want to run this recipe by you all and see what you think. I'm really not too worried about style here, just filed it under "American porter" because it seemed more American than British...

    Mesquite smoked malt

    Hey everyone! Has anyone tried the Briess mesquite-smoked malt? Trying to figure out if it's worthwhile to use in an American amber or even a little bit in an IPA. Please let me know!

    Specialty IPA: Brown IPA Vienna Gambit IPA

    This is my brown IPA, brewed with pale and Vienna malts and German hops. It has a very crisp profile and it's not your typical IPA for sure. It has a woody, herbal, almost cedar-like flavor with hints of orange, ginger, and mint. There is some astringency in there from the roasted malts, and it...

    Vienna Gambit IPA

    Hey everyone, This is my next IPA recipe, but I am torn: do I go with Vienna malt as my base or a combo of Munich and Vienna as my base? The whole goal of this recipe is to produce a "German IPA". What do you all think? This is a 2.5 gallon BIAB recipe. Recipe Specifications...

    Hypermodern 64 IPA

    Hey everyone! I would like to brew this recipe next weekend, but I'd like some feedback. A bit of a backstory: I'm a chess player, and the hypermodern school of chess changed the course of the game in the late 19th century. In honor of that (and the fact that there are 64 squares on a chess...

    English IPA Queen's Indian English IPA

    Hey everyone! This is my first contribution to the recipe page! Easily the most successful beer I have brewed so far, a British-style IPA. Definitely has a big malt profile, the hop flavor is somewhat muted but balanced, and back end bitterness is big. Plus, I brewed it for a lighter body so it...

    Doubled Pawn DIPA

    Hey everyone, Thank you for your feedback on previous recipes, they've turned out amazing! I have a question on this one recipe though: the OG is rather high and I plan on using a Wyeast smack pack. Wyeast only inoculates up to 1.060 at 5 gallons; seeing as this is a 2.5 gallon batch, should...

    Scholar's Mate Sweet Stout

    I am planning on making this to be ready for St. Patrick's Day. I need pointers though, I feel that there are too many roasted malts happening despite the lactose and brown sugar. Thoughts? This is a BIAB recipe. Boil Size: 3.88 gal Post Boil Volume: 3.13 gal Batch Size (fermenter): 2.50 gal...

    Ruy Lopez Robusto Porter

    Hey everyone. I posted a similar recipe a few months ago and I have been on a porter kick lately, so I figured I would post it again. My big question is: would a pale malt/white wheat malt base with chocolate wheat be appropriate for this style? Please let me know. This is a small batch BREW IN...

    Wheat Porter?

    In your opinions, is a porter with a white wheat base and chocolate wheat malts feasible? Having never brewed before I have all these great ideas but often wonder how well they'd translate in real life. Please let me know if this sort of recipe is doable.

    Blackburne's Brown Ale

    So, before I go any further, I am a chess player/teacher. Almost all of my brews will have the title of some chess theme with the others reflecting my hometown's history. This one is all about a Grandmaster named Joseph Henry Blackburne from Manchester, England. In his heyday, back in the late...

    Passed Pawn Pale Ale

    Ok so, this is a recipe I designed for my first home brew. I want to do something somewhat out of the ordinary as far as APA's are concerned, using Ahtanum instead of Cascade hops. What should I expect from using Ahtanum hops? Does this recipe look decent? Please let me know. This is a...
