All-Grain

Elkwood Brown

This is a hoppy American Brown Ale. I recently revised the recipe to make use of some of the "New Grains" being stocked at the Home Beer, Wine and Cheese Shop, and it won the little New Grains Recipe Contest we had this summer. It also took a first place in the L.A. County Fair.

Bugged Out Oats

Another in a series of oatty beers and a split batch for different effects. This is my exploration of the East Coast Yeast Company's Bug Farm Series (Bug Farm V) and the new Candi Syrup D-90 out of North Carolina.

Big Red A.S.S.

Dark red with a touch of spice and roast, hopped to hell and back, this beer would have been my entry in the "new grains" contest. As it turned out, I couldn't get off of work for that particular meeting, so I had to drink all 5 gallons myself! Actually, I did bring a growler to the July shop brew/LACF check-in, where it was well-received.

Fat Cat Sweet Stout

Back around Memorial Day, I lost my one of my big fat silver blue sweetheart of a cat, Mark. In his honor, I whipped up this recipe

Y'allternative Oatwine

The alternative barleywine series returns! Taking advantage of the Shop now carrying Thomas Fawcett Oat Malt, we bring you some oaty goodness. And since I'm an old school movie fan we made this an "oater" with the addition of a heaping helping of Amarillo.

dave & Rich's Dark Mild -- "new grains"

Rich & i worked up a decently tasty dark mild and this is the adaptation using the Shop's 2011 "new grains". A moderately complex 1.040 beer that was dynamite on the hand pump!

Little Ghost Saison

This was the "starter" Saison that I brewed to generate my yeast cakes for the "Big Ghost". Don't discount this little guy, he's a keeper.

Saison Guacamole

This was another of the giant collection of "California Saisons" that I made for my 2011 AHA talk and Club Night. Awesomely weird and inspired by the Avocado trees in my backyard. I know this sounds strange, but it really works!

Big Ghost Saison

This is a big bold bugger of a Super Saison. Inspired by the idea generating factory of Fantome and using a culture of their strain grown in a batch of a smaller beer. This was a big hit at the 2011 AHA Conference.
