Saison Ordnaire

This is my no fuss, no muss, easy going table Saison recipe. It makes a great test bed for additional flavors and a great work day beer.

Coffee & Cream Stout

This is the third variation on a coffee stout. My first attempt was my 2nd brew ever. After the Drew Carey show introduced "Buzz Beer", I attempted my second batch. I have always been proud of this brew, and have tweaked the recipe over the years. The short cold soak of the coffee will assure great flavor but control the heavy roasted astringency. This recipe was chosen for the 2nd round of Sam Adam's Longshot competition.

Elkwood Wheat

This is a true American Wheat - not an American take on a Hefe. With a week or two of cold conditioning, it's crystal clear, pours with a fluffy white head, and is very refreshing. I've been brewing this beer, with only minor variations in the hopping, for almost ten years. It has garnered awards in Mayfaire, Pacific Brewers Cup and America's Finest City comps, and a keg of it brought to a summer meeting or a fest almost always gets emptied. It's also higher gravity and higher total IBUs than the style guidelines, which may have something to do with it's consistent success in comps.

Ball-A-Holic Hefe

This is a traditional Bavarian Hefeweizen with the malt and hops perfectly balanced and backed with a banana and clove aroma and flavor that is the signature of this style. I have brewed over 20 Hefes and experimented with different mash schedules, yeasts, decoction procedures, malts, hops, you name it. I think I’ve tried and will continue to try to perfect the best German Hefeweizen I can and have to say that this beer winning the Mayfaire Competition, Best of Show in 2010, is a feat that will be hard to top with this beer or with any other.

2004 February - AHA Commemorative Brew - Double Down Double IPA

This beer was brewed for the 2004 AHA Conference in Vegas as one of 3 beers (SNAFU, QUAFF, us) and a mead (SNAFU) presented to the attendees. The recipe is based on a previous beer brewed by myself (Drew Beechum) and Jim Kopitzke - the Double Trouble IPA. Since this brew is intended to represent the club the recipe was presented to the club for comments. Great comments were collected from everyone, but in particular there should be callouts to MB Raines, Ken Rhude, John Aitchison, Jim Moorman and John Aitchison. The hopping schedule on this beer seems utterly absurd, but it was spurred by some comments that MB made when I came to the conclusion that I wanted a balanced hop character. To see the logic behind the hopping schedule check out the Hop articles on the tech section of the website. Cullen Davis whipped up a great label and homage to Ralph Steadman. Check it out! The beer was bottled up by a six man team who managed to bottle up 400 bottles in 2.5 hours. Thanks to Steve Cook, George Mahoney, Don Knott, Kent Fletcher and Don Knott for their bottle donations. The intrepid bottling team consisted of Matt Udall, Kent Fletcher, Cullen Davis, Steve Cook, Jim Kopitzke, Jay Babchuk and myself. Special thanks to Kent Fletcher for taking care of the ferments and providing a great bottling setup
