Batch 77: Harvest Amber Ale

The next in a series of pumpkin ales for the season, inspired by the impeccable Nepenthe Amber Ale recipe (adapted earlier this year to include MO as the base malt), and riding on the heels of the Pumpkin Dubbel that placed 3rd in the professional panel of the homebrew comp for the 2016 Baltimore Craft […]

Batch 71: Nepenthe Amber

So, for batch 70, I kindof … planned too large a grain bill for my mash tun. Aaaaaand … maybe we crushed a little too much grain for the plan. PSA: don’t measure and crush grain when you’ve been drinking heavily on St. Patrick’s day. We tried to fit as much as we could in […]

Batches 13/14: Partigyle – Imperial IPA and a Porter

I’ve been reading about Partigyle brewing and I want to give it a shot. I’m brewing 2.5 gallons of an Imperial IPA, then 5 gallons of a Porter. I planned the grain bill for a 7.5 gallon, 1.060 FG beer, with the understanding that this would give me a <strong OG> 2.5 gallon first running, […]

Batch 12: Mad Elf Clone

In an ode to one of our favorite winter seasonals, and in acknowledgement of the fact that Tr√∂egs hasn’t made it to the west coast yet, I’m attempting a clone of the infamous Mad Elf. It has Tr√∂egenator (doppelbock) as it’s base, using belgian ale yeast instead of lager, and with cherries in the secondary. […]
