O Colorado got it with 12" of snow overnight and the kids are home and I'm looking around the house to see what I could brew up today. What would you brew on a snow day? I've been playing on beersmith making recipes, got a fun recipe?
I can't find a all grain I think is going to be as amazing as I want it to be. I am thinking beer pancakes flavor. Malty and maple-yMonkey55 said:I was thnking the same thing. I'm going to have to look for a recipe for that.
I was thinking the same thing! Similar to how St. Arnold's puts out their Christmas ale in mid-summer each year. Kolsch is an excellent idea; would also think about some lagers to take advantage of the cooler temps.JonM said:I'd do something completely different from a wintery brew. Say it's a miserable snowy January day - I'd brew something that puts my mind into spring a little bit. Maybe a Kolsh that I can ferment in the cool basement and then lager until March or April and drink in May?
Nice there are a lot of us foco'ers. I wish I had the goods to brew so I was stuck behind my monitor playing with recipes in beer smith.manoaction said:Hey fellow FoCo. I brewed an IPA on Monday and then drove to work in the snow wishing I'd delayed a day to brew in the snow instead.
Just use a stout recipe that isn't too roasty or bitter, and once it's done fermenting, add maple extract. Be very careful with how much you add though. That stuff can get overpowering very quickly.I can't find a all grain I think is going to be as amazing as I want it to be. I am thinking beer pancakes flavor. Malty and maple-y
