Tangerine Tupelo Melomel

Wanted to brew a semi-sweet mead, using Tupelo honey and tangerine juice. We have a mature tangerine tree in our back yard, and it is prolific. Last year we couldn't keep up with the fruit, so I juiced and froze a bunch: ten pounds of juice. It measured 17 brix on my refractometer. Finally got around to making the mead this month. It fermented almost 3 weeks in primary, at 65F, and is now ready to rack to secondary. I tasted it, and it tastes like high octane Tang! It is a cloudy, pale orange in color now, but should clear nicely after I ignore it for 6 months in secondary. There's both tangerine and honey aromatics a plenty right now.

The bro Porter

A porter I brewed with my bro. A nice easy drinking porter with toasty and roasted flavors and coffee on the nose. Enjoy the recipe and cheers.

Very Berry Melomel

Attempting to produce a semi-sweet mead with 14% alcohol and 2% residual sugar. If it comes out even half as good as Wickham's killer raspberry melomel, I'll be well pleased.

Lime Mint Soda

When it's too hot to brew I make up a batch of soda. Lately on my days off, the last thing I want to do is stand in the blistering hot sun for a whole brew session. My kegs go empty and I grow thirsty, this soda pop recipe is my quick fit.

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.
