    Surly Grindcore clone attempt If anyone is interested and know the beer. I made this beer off a few ideas from other recipes as a starting point, as I got from their website what the grain bill is and hops and yeast used. The first test from fermenter are...

    White IPA recipe advice

    We have a summer desert dish here in Denmark called Koldskål which is essentially biscuits in buttermilk flavoured with lemon and vanilla and I'm thinking about making this into a beer using lactose, lemon peel and vanilla bean. I'm thinking about a White IPA. For my grist I'm thinking: 50%...

    First Milk Stout, Do I clarify?

    Hi all, This is my first time brewing a Milk Stout, therefore using Lactose. Is it wise to clarify this brew (Gelatin), or will I end up removing the Lactose?

    Rhubarb Pie with Vanilla Sauce Small Melomel 7%

    I am still new to brewing but as an avid cook I cannot stop myself from jumping off the deep end and crafting recipes right from the start. I do have a couple questions sprinkled throughout. I was inspired by this recipe...

    Lactose for milk stout

    So right when I was ready to give up on stouts. I tried Guinness dry stout, a peanut butter milk stout (too overwhelming in my opinion) I didn’t want to be spending money on beers I’m forcing myself to like (because I want to like at least one beer per style). I found Garage brewery Marshmallow...

    Molasses and rye mämmi stout feedback

    Want to make a sweetened rye (and possibly oats) sweet stout-ish inspired by mämmi. I'm thinking the molasses (how much?) will ferment out and will taste weird unless sweetened back with lactose at 5%? Rye something like 15%? Some oats for mouth feel... Maybe a tiny bit of wheat in there. And...

    Strawberry blonde with lactose. Thoughts?

    Going to brew a 6 gal blonde ale with strawberries (they are in season locally) added at the end of primary fermentation. We are using roughly 1.5lbs per gallon frozen, smashed, and pasteurized. I have brewed the recipe before with good results, but I would like to see some of the tartness...

    Hey y'all. This isn't exactly a clone, since I haven't had the beer in question. If you're unfamiliar, here are some examples of what it looks like:
