    Amber Ale With Figs

    Bit of a backstory first. In my very early brewing days about 15 years ago I worked at a hospital that had tons of Brown Turkey fig trees planted around it, with so many fresh figs available I knew I had to brew with them. One day I picked a boatload and made a 5 gallon Fat Tire clone...

    Füchschen Alt Clone - First Homebrew Recipe (Feedback appreciated!)

    So, as you can see by the title, this is going to be my first brew. I posted a long while ago here in the forums asking about the difference between batch sparging and decoction mashing (lol). I've since learned that one of these isn't a mashing process, but I digress. ANYWAY, my first post...

    Odd Flavor from 2nd Keg

    I kegged up my first batch of homebrew which was an amber ale. I have a 1.75-gallon keg and a 2.5-gallon keg. My first keg tasted great, however, my second key has an off flavor that I just can't quite place. It's not terrible but not pleasant either. There was probably a month or a little more...

    Strong caramel taste to all amber ales

    I've tried extracts as well as partial mash and even tried a whole grain one for kicks. They all seem to have way too much caramel going on, to the point where my wife calls it 'desert beer'. I like some toasted caramel notes in an ale but so far my attempts have wound up all tasting the same...
