Hop Harvest Ale

For the September '15 shop brew session, I contacted a friend who had a small hop yard and he brought up a shipment of some dried and some freshly harvested hops to use for this brew. I created a recipe for a rich amber ale that uses these fresh hops in the finishing stages to maximize aroma contribution and because we didn't have lab numbers for alpha acids or cohumulone.

Shop Brew Lambic

Kicking off a project that will be at least a year in the making, we got together a hearty crew led by John Aitchison to brew a lambic. John based this brew on brews that MB Raines used to lead. She has a particular schedule and idea in mind for making lambics and John wanted to show everyone!

This is a recipe that I've been working on for a few years now with only minor tweaks between batches. This particular recipe was used during the Brew with a Falcon event at my place on 3/22/2015.

Old Stout Porter

A bit of a throwback recipe, bumping up the gravity to the high end of the porter category and adding a healthy amount of brown malt to give it a full, complex, roasty character with some traditional English hops for an herbal, perfumed aroma with fruity notes. This was brewed on the shop system in September '13.

Top Forty Old Ale

Shop Brew, in preparation for the 40th Anniversary Party that's just less than a year away. This brew maxed out the new 55 gal mash tun and we still had to add extract to get the BIG Old Ale we wanted.

Falcon Noel Douze

Century Club Barleywine

This shop brew recipe used 99 lbs. of grains and somewhat more than a pound of hops, so with 100 lbs. of dry ingredients, and being a club brew, we called it the Century Club Barleywine. It uses some Victory malt and a little Special B to give it a luscious malty body and a touch of Kiln Coffee is thrown in to give an added dimension. The hops were chosen to deliver a substantial, yet smooth bitter finish and a complex American-hop accented aroma.

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:
