It’s been over 3 years since I’ve updated this site. In fact, since my last post, I’ve gotten married and we had a baby girl. She’s beautiful and I’m loving it. I’d say that 2015 was our biggest brewing year. We brewed probably about 12-15 batches. Some were hits like a Bourbon Barrel Aged Vanilla […]
We got creamed today
Today we brewed a Cream Ale. Of all the beers I’ve drank, I don’t think I’ve had so many cream ales. It’s not a style that I’m that familiar with. In fact, this was another one that used corn sugar in the mix. We didn’t have to steep any grains this time either. When […]
Brewing an American Light Beer
Today, we’re brewing an American Light beer. This was Josh B’s choice to brew this one. He said that his dad has been pestering him to make a beer that he would like to drink. So, we’re making a hunting / fishing brew for him. This was our first beer that didn’t require steeping any […]
Bottling the Bacon Breakfast Porter
We bottled the Bacon Breakfast Porter the same day we added Pineapple to the Pale Ale. I decided to label these with a cartoon bacon chewing his own arm off. Hey, we’re “Insane”. Anyway, here’s what they look like. We can’t wait to try this stuff out in a few weeks.
Adding Pineapple to our Pale Ale
Today, we’re moving our American Pale Ale to the secondary. We won’t be dry hopping this beer, we’re adding pineapple. When doing some research, we opted to go with one of the big cans of pineapple from Sam’s Club. I was afraid if we used fresh pineapple, we may not get something as flavorful. […]
Brewing a Pale Ale
Today we’re brewing an American Pale Ale. A delicious light hoppy beer, perfect for nice spring & summer weather. For the next 6 months or so, we will probably want to brew the lighter “Summer” beers. Stouts and Porters are great, but no one wants to chug down a thick stout after mowing the lawn […]
Secret Ingredient… It’s Bacon!
We’ve been working on a coffee porter that Josh E has decided to put a “Breakfast” twist on. Josh told me he wanted this beer to remind him of breakfast. His idea of breakfast is Coffee with French vanilla creamer and (of course) bacon. So, we scrapped open a couple of real […]
Chocolate Koffee Milk Stout
Here’s a short montage of us working on our Chocolate Milk Stout infused with Kaldi’s Coffee. Or as we incorrectly named it: Chocolate Koffee Milk Stout
