So after seeing that Matt Curtis was was removing dead links from his excellent blog on twitter this evening, I decide he could remove my blog as i’ve so been pretty slack on the updates. But after hearing that he enjoys my homebrew ramblings i’ve decide to write an update on what i’ve been cooking up over the last few months. Going forward i’ll try and keep up to date…
With Christmas round the corner decided to brew something easy drinking that you can have more than 2 of, so under 5% and not to hoppy not that hoppy stop its being easy drinking.
Another beer I squeezed in over the summer was a Elderflower saison, this was brewed late june and I added 30g of elderflowers to the fermentor and left them there for five day before removing and bottling.
Doing some updates! Have done quite a few beers over the last few month going to add a few of the more interesting ones up here. First up a dark saison.
Time for something different for summer. I am basing this recipe around the beer Conflux 2 by Deschutes brewery which is meant to be a white IPA a sort of cross between a IPA and a belgian white beer I gather. They have quite a bit of information available on there site so that was good to get started.
Been brewing this time I cooked up two pales one weekend after the other, one was a clone of Zombie dust the three floyd’s beers which I have never tried but saw the recipe on homebrewtalk it basically looks like a citra hop bomb so thought i’d give it a try.
Even though its snowing spring is somewhere out there, its time to begin the Saison Series, one of my ideas for this year is to brew a series of saisons and basically try to be a bit more experimental, i’m still getting to grips with the new kit, have done about 10 brews on it now and I feel my beer are greatly improving. I have now added in one of the little solar pumps to recirculate the mash and to make sparging easier.
