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.

Lion's Share | Strong Ale

Original batch brewed with Falcon members Dave and Courtney Lopez a few weeks before my son was born in 2012. Recipe has remain unchanged across subsequent batches, winning Blue Ribbons in Strong Ale category at LA County Fair two years in a row (2012, 2013) and Silver Medal in Imperial Anything category at Doug King 2013. Highest score was a 40 from a BJCP certified judge (too generous I think). The biscuit malt plays really well with the Simcoe/Amarillo combination and the Denny's Favorite yeast leaves it full-bodied, chewy, yet not cloyingly sweet while balanced with the high IBUs from resiny hops.

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.

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.

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!
