Homebrewing a SFBC – Lando Saison

It’s summer time and with temperatures that approach (or at the very least are in the “feels like” range of) 40°C/104°F what better beer is there to make then the classic Saison?

Recipe: OBK Hefenweizen

A pale, spicy and fruity wheat-based ale that’s light and refreshing. Notes of clove and banana stand out from the wheat ale yeast. Hop character is kept at a minimum to allow the grain, bread and straw flavour of the malt to shine through. A well rounded beer with a dry finish with lots of…

Recipe: SFBC – Lando Saison

Lando is a regularly brewed Saison on the SFBC system. Low alcohol, light dry body, moderate fruity esters depending on temperature you choose to ferment at. There is a slight hoppy note with an apparent bitterness that balances the beer. The version that Rob brews is barrel aged and blended but the original base recipe…

Homebrewing a German Alt

Having been a homebrewer for a while now I often times struggle with what to brew next and generally when that happens I end up picking a style I’ve never attempted before. This time was no different as I decided to check German Altbier off my list. Recipe Source: Northern Brewer Beer Specifications Beer Name:…

Homebrewing a Centennial Blonde Lager

It was almost a year ago when I first brewed the, at this point, classic Centennial Blonde Ale homebrew recipe. At the time I thought it was a good beer but nothing overly special. However since writing that original post I’ve gained more and more of an appreciation for the beer and so when I…

Recipe: Corona Extra Clone

The go-to Pilsner for a day at the beach, this crisp, refreshing lager is a great beer to have on hand at any time during the summer. Try it “dressed” with salt and lime for an even more south-of-the-border experience! Source: Homebrew Supply Beer Specifications Beer Name: Corona Extra Clone Beer Style: Mexican Cerveza Recipe…

Recipe: German Alt

Alt refers to an old-school, top-fermented style of brewing ale rather than a relatively modern bottom-fermented lager. Altbier is especially associated with the city of Düsseldorf. Alts are a bit difficult to explain to the uninitiated – kind of like a hoppy Oktoberfest? A very malty pale ale? You’ll just have to try a glass…

Homebrewing The El Morillo

If you’ve been a long term reader of this site, you may have gathered by now I love hoppy beers. In fact the only unfortunate thing in my mind about loving hoppy beers so much is that not everyone loves hoppy beers. Or at least some people don’t think they do. I find often times…
