Homebrewing a Summer “Leftover” Ale II

Homebrewing a Berliner Weisse Sour

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…
