    Hoppy Wheat Pale

    After having drank Fortunate Island from Modern Times many times, I love that there is a recipe. This is the official version from Modern Times Brewing for their Fortunate Island. It is both hoppy and delish.

    Let hear how your weekend brewing ended up?

    Brew day started late on sunday, didnt get started until 2:30. Hit strike temp quickly, got mashing and everything set nice. Got good efficiency for once and started to boil. Hops in fine at 60, 20,15,10,5 and then the kids insisted we go to the pool (mind you it was cloudy and 70). So flame...

    Berliner Weisse Fruit Additions Tweak

    How are the strawberries holding up? I have only had 2 other commercial beers with strawberries and they seem to fade quickly. I love how well they work in a sour beer but am always interested in their longevity (not that beer lasts long around my house). Cheers!

    Beer tastes like metal

    I find that Magnum hops give off a metalic taste to my palate. Have you brewed this recipe before and have tasted it or is this a new beer that you havent tried?

    Strong shelves to support the weight. Also think about spacing the shelves based on size and number of bottles you have. As with anything, capacity is always an issue so being efficient will be important. The tighter you pack in the bottles the more efficient your freezer will be as well...

    100% brett cider

    Yeah, i was worried about the fact that all the sugars are simple, been debating trying a graff and mashing in high to make the sugars less available for the sacc. I was thinking about a saison yeast too and fermenting really warm (once it warms up a bit out here) to see what it would do...

    100% brett cider

    Go for it levi, I have always thought some guezes have a similar taste to cider (apple finish), I may pitch some dregs from some sours into my next cider and see how it goes. I can see this as a great experiment, I have only tried different sacc yeasts in my ciders and noticed some major...
