Hey there folks. It’s been a while since I posted on this blog but I plan to post more and more from here on out. Between I posted last I’ve done a few batches of beer. I made a Pumpkin Ale that didn’t turn out quite the way I wanted it to. The pumpkin I used actually came through pretty well but I could of used more spices. I baked two pumpkins, took out the insides, and added it into the boil. I’ll post the full recipe soon. I also made a second batch of my Citra heavy IPA. I took some ideas from my fellow beer drinkers and changed the recipe on that. Changed my bittering hop on that one, bumped up the amount of caramel malt. Still didn’t think it came out to great. So back to the drawing board on that one. I was going to brew it again soon but Citra is hard to find these days so I’m totally revamping my hops and hop schedule for the next batch. Might keep the same grain bill for the most part.
This past weekend I brewed a Milk Stout that will eventually be dosed with Vanilla Beans, Cocoa Nibs, and Cold Pressed coffee. It took off like a bat out of hell when it comes to fermentation. You can see the picture above. I plan on brewing like a mad man. It’s cheaper for one then buying from a store and I feel like I get a lot more pleasure out of drinking my own stuff. Expect some updates to the site this week, post some of the recipes I used and I’ll be adding some other stuff.
