Board Rye Barrel Barleywine

A classic, big bad barleywine brewed by the the Falcons Board members in 25 gallon batches. The first two batches were brewed in the end of 2010 to fill a fresh Rye Whiskey Barrel from Heaven Hill Distillery. Our friend Pat Rue of the Bruery in Placentia was instrumental in helping us to obtain this great barrel. Since its initial filling, the barrel has had portions drawn off for the 2011 and 2012 AHA Conferences (San Diego and Seattle), the So Cal Homebrew Fest, and Falcon fests. It has been refilled (25 gallons at a time) three times since then (as of February 2013, with another 25 gallons fermenting.

Jersey Red Ryder IPA

Our January 2013 Shop Brew Recipe was for a Red Rye IPA. This beer is intended to have a nice full body, a deep red ruby color, good rye presence in the malt flavors with a nice floral hop aroma and flavor with medium bitterness. The brewing program I use is Beer Smith, which will try to do everything for the brewer except drink his beer. Running the recipe through Beer Smith, I got a target Original Gravity of 1.077, SRM of 17.9 and 66.6 IBUs. The grain bill for this beer named, “Red Ryder IPA”, consists of the following:

ScotchBrewman - AKA November Club Brew

Here is the November Shop brew scaled down to a 5-Gallon batch. It is a Strong Scotch Ale, which is also known as a "Wee-Heavy" and my favorite style of beer. The ingredients used in this brew are not traditionally Scottish, but they fit the flavor profile well. The hopping schedule utilize the Northern Brewer hop variety to bring an earthiness to the beer. There are smoked malts in this recipe even though it is often debated whether or not these flavors and aromas are part of a traditional Wee Heavy, but I like them so this is what you get!

John's Westvleteren 12 Clone

Beer won "favorite beer" of June meeting and 1st place 2012 LACF. Lots of dark fruit, some bubble gum, also a little banana. Flavor about halfway between Westvleteren 12 and St. Bernardus ABT 12. It was big hit at 2012 AHA Club Night. Beer ages well. Should reach it's peak in 2015.

Oceanside Rye IPA / Yorkshire Lad Rye

Another split batch of beer to provide cannon fodder for the SCHF. The Oceanside proved to be very popular with a sweet flavor from the large dose of Citra in the finish.
