Sometimes in a blog format older articles get lost – judging by the amount of traffic they get, these are worthy of a bump up to the front page again. If you’re looking for something tasty to brew, give one a try. They all turned out great, even if they didn’t go exactly to plan.
- Denny’s Rye IPA – This recipe already has something of a cult following with internet home brewers. Mostly because its freakin’ good! Lots of hop flavor as you’d expect from an IPA and the Rye adds an interesting character.
- Blonde Ale - A bit of a surprise at #2, but still a good, clean, drinkable beer. You could also try it as a lager with a clean lager year. Makes a good base for a fruit beer!
- Belgian Witbier – Hoegaarden, Blue Moon, Allagash White, Mothership Wit – there are a million examples of this style. With good reason, it’s apparently quite popular at #3.
- Classic American Pilsner – Pre-Prohibition American Style Lager. Really hard to find a commercial version these days – so brew your own.
- California Common – A.K.A. Steam Beer. The most common version is Anchor Steam, but there are many others now. If you’d like to brew something lager-esqe but don’t have the equipment, this might be for you.
- American Lager - The modern-day fizzy, yellow lager. Quite tasty when you brew your own though!
- Sierra Nevada Pale Ale Clone – This was the first beer I ever tried to brew at home. Unfortunately it wasn’t using this recipe, otherwise it might have turned out better.
- Watermelon Wheat – The perfect summer beer? Inspired by Hell or High Watermelon Wheat from the 21A.
- SchwarzBier – Let’s take a pilsner and make it black! Hardly a new invention, serve this classic to your friends who think “all dark beers are thick, heavy and icky”!
- American Amber Ale - Hop-head session ale. Big hop flavor at low gravity – so drink a few!
Now get out there and brew something!
