This thread has exploded recently... Can't believe a few of my posts got lost in the switchover... Oh well. I'll continue on
This past weekend. Nice family party.. Had 4 different types of home brew on tap. We stayed pretty true to what I posted on back in June... Turned so many light drinkers into the type that will now be open to variety... Ain't nothing like a fresh homebrew.
They all wanted to try each one.
Rauchbier- Smoked Malts and extra chocolate malts makes this one a meal in your mouth.. Almost no color out of this one
Blonde- I brew this one almost twice a year now, or more... We've upped the ABV to around 5.5. So still session worthy. Light on hops. Great light flavor. Great carry over beer for those traditional macro drinkers
Amber- Found a recipe online that called for a bit of chocolate malt. We doubled up on the chocolate. And that flavor shines through
Maibock- Lightest of the bocks. Brewed this one as a ale. Really nice flavors.. This one sat untouched in a keg for 2-3 extra weeks vs. the others.. The appearance really shines through
We bottled some Blonde for this event. But unfortunately, I think we fermented too hot and the flavors are a bit off. It wasn't worth serving.. Perfectly carbonated within 10 days too.. What a stinker....
I am definitely down for some type of beer trade. I can't offer much. Just some award winning IPAs, hoppy Ales, and a few other canned varieties... Message me and we can work something out.
