So I have been brewing since the summer of 2006. It has passed being a hobby, I love the time I spend brewing. In the last few years brewing has become part of what I am.

I spent a short stint with a small brewery and after a long hiatus from the world, things are starting to shape up toward a new revelation(revolution) in my brewing life. Come follow on the journey, I can't promise being heavily active but will try to keep posts interesting and informative.

Just a collection of Recipes:

I have moved all new Recipes to BeerSmith and some of the old; search the site and you should be able to find a few jewels.

  • Lil' Tart and Tasty - Berliner Weisse, triple decoction and sour mashed for fun.
  • Southern English Brown w/ Brett. Claussenii - Southern English Brown, currently hanging out with Brett.
  • Hoppy American Amber - Dark American Amber brewed by the Mrs., hop bursted and dry hopped to give huge hop aroma and flavor.
    • Honey malt and an English yeast strain give a sweet character to the beer, but it finshes dry on the palette.
  • Red Wit and Blue - Low gravity Belgian Wit that spent a couple of weeks on raspberries and blueberries.  See the pics for the real color.
  • American Pale Ale - A classic American Pale Ale, great beer for hop experiments
    • We have used Simcoe and Nelson Sauvin over a few batches of this beer as dry hops.
    • Still tweaking the exact malt bill.
    • Finalizing the malt bill, going back to the simple.  Using Motueka hops in this run.
  • Full Nelson - Engish Style Bitter, rich and malty.  Hopped solely with New Zealand Nelson Sauvin hops, a potent dose of flavor and aroma from the hops.  
  • Wild Rice Saison - An American interpretation of a classic Belgian Saison.  Hopped with homegrown Magnum hops for bittering, and Sovereign hops for flavor.  White and Wild rice added to change the body and add some addition flavors.
    • Slight roasty and nutty flavor from the dark malt and wild rice.
    • Gorgeous red/brown color with a light tan head.
  • Hops in the Night - Escondidian style Black IPA.  Big doses of Columbus and Cascade hops give a potent piney and citrusy kick rounded out by the malty backbone of the beer.  
  • Pete's Brown Porter - Borrowed a friend's recipe that was pretty successful in a local competition.  
    • I upped the hop profile a little, its not quite to style but that's why we brew.
