Recipes

This page is a collection of the majority of the homebrew recipes posted on this blog. I have left out a handful of recipes that weren't great and I have no interest in working into something better. The homebrew recipes are broken up loosely into categories and you can jump forward to a group of recipes using the jump links below. The sour recipes included on this page are also included in the sour beer page and the recipes listed in the weird ingredients section are cross-posted in the other categorizes as appropriate.


Saison | Sour/Brett | Hoppy | Malty | Weird Ingredients


Saison Recipes

Fake Fox - A light, 4% rye saison that's heavy on the rye.


Sour/Brett Recipes


The sour beer recipes include the sour projects listed on the sour beer page of the blog along with notes detailing the progress of the individual projects. Other recipes are standalone recipes unrelated to any particular project. These sour homebrew recipes include classic Belgian sour styles, clean beer styles soured and beers with no particular style in mind that I soured. The brett saisons posted above are cross-posted here for convenience.

I Pee Eh? - A black IPA recipe that could justifiably be called an aggressively hoppy American porter



Malty Recipes


This section contains recipes with a significant malt presence such as porters, stouts, barleywines, scotch ales and adambier. I have also lumped into this category various lagers and Belgian ales that do not fit in the sour/brett or saison categories. Some are not malty beers but they include styles that often end up lumped in with malty beers so I have followed suit to avoid an excessive number of divisions on the page.

Double Dog Dare/Triple Dog Dare - Partigyle brown ale with big portion receiving oak-soaked rye whiskey and the small portion receiving cocoa nibs and vanilla

Weird Ingredients Recipes


Sometimes I just can't help but brew with unusual ingredients. This category is a receptacle for those recipes that employed a weird ingredient in an otherwise normal recipe.
