Witbier, we meet again...

I still remember my first taste of Hoegaarden. It was in the Dutch town of Arnhem, in a little cafe that overlooked the town square.

Winter ESB 2014

Time to iterate on my ESB in Oregon.  Based on evaluation of my last brew (which I have sitting in front of me now), I want to add/bump up the late addition hops and pitch an appropriate amount of yeast.   53 more words


Batch #3: Single malt, single hop IPA

We decided it was about time to make something quite a bit hoppier than our two previous beers, so we roamed the web for the best recipe. 292 more words
