Honey Orange Belgian Wheat. Clocks in around 10.5% (I got OG 1.089 FG 1.010). Make a big starter.

Boil Time: 60 Minutes

Ingredients:

2.00 lb       Munich Malt (9.0 SRM)                     Grain        12.50 %      
1.00 lb       Honey Malt (25.0 SRM)                     Grain        6.25 %        
1.00 oz       Hallertauer [4.80 %]  (60 min)            Hops         14.0 IBU      
1.00 oz       Saaz [4.00 %]  (20 min)                   Hops         7.1 IBU      
1.00 oz       Saaz [4.00 %]  (0 min)                    Hops          -            
1.00 oz       Coriander Seed (Boil 10.0 min)            Misc                      
1.00 oz       Orange Peel, Bitter (Boil 10.0 min)       Misc                      
1.00 oz       Orange Peel, Sweet (Boil 10.0 min)        Misc                      
2.00 lb       Honey (1.0 SRM)                           Sugar        12.50 %      
1 Pkgs        Belgian Wit Ale (White Labs #WLP400)      Yeast-Wheat                


Mash 90 minutes @ 150F.

ETA: I got an FG of 1.010 or 1.014 or something on this beer, but it still tastes sweet due to the honey malt. I'd scale it back to 1/4 - 1/2#, or I'd eliminate it altogether and add more honey. I would also double up the orange and coriander (at least), since these amounts are more appropriate for say a 1.050 OG beer. They fade with time, too.

This is a hopped-up version of EdWort's Haus Pale Ale. I made it as my first gluten free (but barley based!) beer for my celiac girlfriend. No starter needed if you use Safale US-05 (dry).

Easy Extract Belgian Wit.  I call it "Nit Wit"





6lbs Dry Wheat Malt Extract


1oz Gernam Hallertau Hops @ 60min


0.25oz German Hallertau Hops @ 10min


0.5oz Bitter Orange Peel @ 10min


0.5oz Lemon Peel @ 10min


1oz Cracked Coriander Seeds @ 10min





Brought 3 lbs of the DME to a boil and added first hops.


Rolled coriander seeds with rolling pin to crack and break up.


Added the rest of the ingredients at 10min left in the boil.





OG: 1.052





I'm going to play with adding 1 full oz of Bitter Orange Peel next time and completely leave out the lemon.  I also like mine spicy so I'm going to crack up those coriander seeds a lot more.  



ETA:  Yeast was the Wyeast belgian ale yeast.

Extract Cream Ale "Mower Man"



4lbs of Pilsen or Extra Light DME

1lb of Dry Rice Extract

0.75 oz Willamette @ 60 min

0.25 oz Willamette @ 20 min

0.25 oz Willamette @ 10 min

0.25 oz Willamette @ 5 min

0.25 oz Willamette @ 1 min

0.25 oz Willamette @ flame out



Yeast: Wyeast American Ale (1056)



Added half the 3 lb bag of DME plus the 1 lb bag of rice extract.  Boil.  Do the hop thing...  Add the remaining DME at 5 minutes left.



This is a guzzler for sure.  Easy to make.  You MUST get your fermentation temps right with this one.  If not you will taste every flaw as it is very light.



OG 1.044

Belgian Blonde





Fermentables:


7 lbs. of Extra Light DME


2 oz. Malto Dextrin


8 oz. of clear belgian candy sugar


4 oz. Belgian Biscuit malt



4 oz. Belgian Aromatic malt



4 oz. German Munich malt



2 oz. Honey malt





Hops:


2 oz. Styrian Goldings Hops





Yeast:


2 packs of Wyeast 1762 Belgian Abbey II or a starter from 1 pack.  





Directions:


Full volume boil is always preferred but lower the volume as needed then just top up.  


  1. Put water in boil kettle along with steeping grains in a strainer bag.




  2. Bring the temp of the water up to 170 then remove grains.  You can sparge them, dunk them, or squeeze them if it makes you happy.  


  3. Stir in the malto dextrin and 3lbs of the DME.




  4. Bring to boil.


  5. At 60 minutes left add 1.5 oz of the hops.




  6. At 15 minutes left turn off heat, stop the clock, and add the rest of the fermentalbes so they're good and dissolved.


  7. Bring back to a boil.


  8. As soon as the boil is reached start the clock.




  9. At 10 minutes add the rest of the hops


  10. (OPTIONAL) At 10 minutes add your whirlfloc tablet and immersion chiller.


  11. After 60 minutes kill the heat and cool that puppy down.


  12. Pitch yeast at 65 - 70 degrees and ferment around 65.




I am getting ready to try this recipe so I'll probably come back with a review.



ETA:  Pitched the two packs of yeast and this thing was blowing out for 24 hours straight.  It's still bubbling today and we're coming up on a week.  The OG wound up being 1.074!!!

Munich Helles
Its subtle. Malty, earthy and easily quaffing beer. This is what you pour by the liter not the pint. If you are not familiar
with it, its the most popular beer they drink in Munich. Similar to Euro
Pilsener, but with more body due to the protein rest.  Tastes damn close to Augustiner Bräu Helles, and comparable to Paulaner Original Münchner Hell. NOT like American pilseners.
I made this recipe card so that you can print it out and check the boxes as you go
---------------------------------------------
Recipe Type: All Grain, Basic Helles
Batch Size (Gallons): 5
ABV: 4.6%
IBU: 18
ATTENUATION: 78%
SRM: 2.6-2.9
[]  1 vial (White Labs WLP835 Lager-X, limited edition). Make Starter overnight with 1L of 55f wort or 10gram DME per 100ml. Or Wyeast 2308 Munich Lager
[]  8 lb German Pils Malt, 2-Row (milled to 75-80% efficiency)


[] OPTIONAL addition: .5 lb Munich Malt (milled to 75-80% efficiency)  


[] OPTIONAL addition: .5 lb Carapils aka Dextrine Malt (milled to 75-80% efficiency) increases OG to 1.054
Dual stage infusion:






[] 1/2 teaspoon sea salt added to mash(to adjust my water to Munich, your water is different)






[]  30min @122f protein rest (add 2 gal boiling water to mash to get to 122f)






[]  30min @154f +/-4f saccrification rest (add 2 gal boiling water to mash to get to 154f)






[]  Mash pH 5.8'ish






[]  Mashout 168-170f (sparge with 2 gal boiling water to mash to get to 170f)
Boil: 90min. Skim scum off top. No lid






[]  At 15min: [0.04/%AA OZ.] bitter: 1/2 oz Hallertauer or Mt Hood or Tettanager, Spalt, Perle, Northern Brewer






[]  At 50min: [AA %] flavor: .3 oz  Hallertauer mittelfruh or Mt Hood or Tettanager, Spalt, Perle, Northern Brewer






[]  At 80min: [AA %] aroma: .6 oz  Hallertauer mittelfruh or Mt Hood or Tettanager, Spalt, Perle, Northern Brewer
[] Near end of boil place cooler into boiling pot
[]  Sanitize fermenter with Starsan
[]  Cool wort to 55f
[]  Check OG: 1.046, add water if necessary
[]  Aerate wort or add 1 drop of olive oil
[]  Pitch yeast at 55f. Primary Fermentation: 11 days at 48-55f         DATE________________






[]  Check for stuck ferment. Aerate if necessary






[]  Check FG: 1.010
[]  Additional Fermentation: Diacetal rest. 3 days 60-70f        DATE________________

[] Lagering, leave on the trub the whole time: 35-40 days at 39f        DATE________________






[]  Harvest, wash and label yeast, good for 4 months
[]  Sanitize serving keg and racking cane with Starsan






[]  Keg @ 42f / 12psi, 3+ days
-------------------
Notes:
12/16/12 used haller, hood, Perle.
1/18/13 racked and
kegged
1/20 tasted young with slight diacetal
1/27 tasted very good, slight
grass, no diacetal...its dissipated into the trub
1/30 too salty, adjusted recipe from 1.5tsp to .5tsp
3/10 tasting awesome the last month, super clear straw color and the subtle malt flavor is perfect

Strawberry Skeeter Pee

So about two months ago, I made Raspberry/Blackberry skeeter pee. It was a huge hit. Last night I brewed up a batch of Strawberry SP.

For a 5 gallon batch


  • 3 bottles of 32 oz 100% lemon juice (e.g ReaLemon in the green plastic bottles or equivalent)

  • 6 lbs light brown sugar & 1 lb white sugar to ferment

  • 3/4 tsp tannin

  • 6 tsp. yeast nutrient (3 now, 3 later)

  • 2 tsp. yeast energizer (1 now, 1 later)

  • Approx, 4 1/2 gallons water

  • Lavalin 1118 rehydrated in warm water

  • Sparkolloid

  • Back sweeten with non-fermentable sugar as I do not use the Kmeta or sorbate to stop fermentation



I used 6lbs of light brown sugar and 1lb of regular white sugar. I rehydrated my Lavalin 1118 yeast in warm water and added the nutrient, tannin, and energizer. I let that sit while I heated the sugar water mixture in one pot and the strawberries (3lbs frozen) in another. I blended the strawberries and poured them into the better bottle, poured in the sugar water, strawberry water and lemon juice. I then topped it off with cold water to bring the temp down to 70deg and poured my yeast mixture in. I capped it off and hauled it to my fermentation room (spare office room) and went to dinner. When I came back (2 hours later) it was doing infrequent bubbles. This morning, it was rocking that airlock. I use a heat belt to keep it a little warmer than the beer that I am brewing but ymmv.

I ferment dry, then sweeten and add the 4 oz of corn sugar to carbonate. I then stove top pasteurize (Though sniper wolf has since questioned if I need to. Not sure. Gonna experiment with the next batch.)

I used the original recipe as a guide but like to take it to new places. Here is the Link so that you can check on specific steps.

Session Beer - Mild

I think I stole this recipe largely from Jamil, but I think it's one of my favorite daily drinkers.  The recipe is kind of boring, but I really like this beer.  

This is my version of a No-Sparge recipe.  I'm not sure if it is technically, but I do not run off before mash out.  My system is about 80% efficient doing batch sparging, so I "no-sparge" to cut that down to 70%.  

7.20 lbs Maris Otter
0.65 lbs Crystal 120
0.31 lbs Special Roast

1.00 oz Kent Goldings - 60 min
0.70 oz Kent Goldings - 30 min
0.70 oz Kent Goldings - 0 min
1.00 oz Kent Goldings - Dry Hop for 7 days

Yeast - I've had good luck with a few english yeasts.  Wyeast ESB was my favorite so far.  

Mash at 154 with usual water to grist ratio.  After 60 minutes, add the rest of the water necessary for mash out temp and pre-boil volume.  Don't run off first.  

It ends up being about 3.2%, which means you can drink a lot.  I like Goldings, but you can probably sub any complimentary english hop.

made this, sans the strawberries...so just a regular Skeeter Pee. I like it , thanks for posting it.
also used Red Star Champagne yeast instead of Lavlin, worked fine with a corn sugar starter (its what I had on hand).

Its a really easy party starter/finisher. High enough alcohol to get you to a good place and easy to drink. We have had many a firepit party with my first batch.

This got me 2nd Place in IPA in a local competition

6 gallons
OG 1.060
FG 1.010-1.011
IBU (Rager) 72.5

6 lb American 2 Row
3.6 lb UK Maris Otter  (Can likely use standard 2 Row the whole way, I just had to use this Maris Otter up)
2 lb Light (10L) Munich (some breadiness)
1 lb Malted Rye (some spiciness)
1lb Malted Wheat (head retention)

Hops (pellet)
60min      0.75 Columbus    40.0 IBU  (14.2 AA)
15min      0.40 Cascade       2.2 IBU   (5.5 AA)
10min      0.50 Citra              6.0 IBU   (14.4 AA)
10min      1.00 Cascade       5.5 IBU    (6.7 AA)
 5min      1.00 Citra              8.8 IBU   (14.4 AA)
 3min      1.00 Columbus      5.2 IBU (14.2 AA)
 1min      1.50 Citra              1.8 IBU  (14.4 AA)
Dry Hop  1.50  Citra
Dry Hop  1.00  Mosiac

Notes:
This is a Citra-centric IPA, which can get sweet, which is why I used Columbus a little to offset it.
I imagine the Cascade additions would also do well with Centennial, but was using what I had left to use up on hand just to add some complexity.

Single infusion mash at 152 @ 1 hour
Used a big pitch of Wyeast 1056 (a very clean re-pitch from a Pale Ale that I got going with 1L of starter wort, pitched while active)
Fermented at 66-67 for 4 days, ramped up to 72 to finish for a day, then back to 67 and dry hopped in a bag for 4 days before cold crashing and kegging.

I brewed this White House Honey Ale for my wife... she loved it.

WHITE HOUSE HONEY ALE
Ingredients

2 (3.3 lb) cans light malt extract
1 lb light dried malt extract
12 oz crushed amber crystal malt
8 oz Biscuit Malt
1 lb White House Honey
1 1/2 oz Kent Goldings Hop Pellets
1 1/2 oz Fuggles Hop pellets
2 tsp gypsum
1 pkg Windsor dry ale yeast
3/4 cup corn sugar for priming


Directions

In an 12 qt pot, steep the grains in a hop bag in 1 1/2 gallons of sterile water at 155 degrees for half an hour. Remove the grains.
Add the 2 cans of the malt extract and the dried extract and bring to a boil.
For the first flavoring, add the 1 1/2 oz Kent Goldings and 2 tsp of gypsum. Boil for 45 minutes.
For the second flavoring, add the 1/2 oz Fuggles hop pellets at the last minute of the boil.
Add the honey and boil for 5 more minutes.
Add 2 gallons chilled sterile water into the primary fermenter and add the hot wort into it. Top with more water to total 5 gallons. There is no need to strain.
Pitch yeast when wort temperature is between 70-80?. Fill airlock halfway with water.
Ferment at 68-72? for about seven days.
Rack to a secondary fermenter after five days and ferment for 14 more days.
To bottle, dissolve the corn sugar into 2 pints of boiling water for 15 minutes. Pour the mixture into an empty bottling bucket. Siphon the beer from the fermenter over it. Distribute priming sugar evenly. Siphon into bottles and cap. Let sit for 2 to 3 weeks at 75?.

I'm going to play with adding 1 full oz of Bitter Orange Peel next time and completely leave out the lemon.  I also like mine spicy so I'm going to crack up those coriander seeds a lot more.  

ETA:  Yeast was the Wyeast belgian ale yeast.
