Batch 33: Ploughshares to Swords

I just noticed that the name of this beer is consonant-heavy. Can a beer be consonant-heavy? Anyway, we are embarking on a quest into Saison territory!! (should I say terroir?) Inspired by a number of various recipes on homebrewtalk.com, and given my current compliment of ingredients, I present to you (for camping consumption in the […]

Batch 21: ‘Muirca!! (by Slotterbrew)

I had the pleasure of brewing with my brothers-in-law Drew and Dan in the pleasant town of Thornhurst, on August 11th.

Batch 5: Pale Nugget SMaSH

So, this technically isn’t quite a SMaSH (Single Malt and Single Hop), as I’m using both 2-row and crystal 60. However, it is my FIRST ALL GRAIN BATCH! Yes kids, daddy has taken his first step onto the field. After reading a ton on BIAB (brew in a bag, a method of no-sparge all grain […]
