    Need ideas for brewing an experimental beer

    I'm someone who likes doing weird experimental things, and one thing that I love other than my love of homebrewing is theology and philosophy. I actually studied Philosophy in college back then! So anyways, I'm thinking of brewing a theologically inspired brew, and not just say Trappist abbey...

    Jasmine Pale Ale

    This is my first time brewing a recipe I made, and I was looking for input especially on the hop schedule. I love the spicy, floral notes that many Czech-style pilsners have, and whenever I drink them, I always get a slight jasmine tea on the palate. Therefore, I wanted to use that as...

    Help Creating Early 90s Wheat Ale

    Ideas on a 100% Brett project

    Hi, I made my first 100% beer, a Farmhouse ale inspired in this recipe. I'm planning to bottle next week, so I'll have a nice yeast cake fresh to use (I know there are discussions about this, but I've done it many times always succesfully). I guess the brett strain is B. claussenii, due to the...

    Hey, So recently i brewed what I was intending to be an old school clear west-coast IPA with high drinkability. What came out is a sort of - boring-ish, slightly too bitter on the finish un-refreshing beer type drink. On the brew I had an issue with a broken pump in my Grainfather and so I...
