Batch# 22 – SMaSH Citra IPA
BYO Magazine issue Vol 20, #4
PDF from Beersmith
If you don’t have a subscription to BYO, you should. They have great articles that apply to homebrew, and they don’t get overly bogged down in commercial beer stuff. I really look forward to every new issue.
Work on a simple SMaSH IPA and better understand the flavor that the hop and malt provide.

Batch# 20 – I Eat Danger For Breakfast Stout
I got the recipe for this ridiculously named beer from here and converted it in beersmith to look like this. I converted liquid extract to dme, and brought the projected OG into line with the recipe projected OG. Beersmith was calculating the og about .010 lower than the recipe called for, so I bumped it up by that amount. We ended up .010 over, so beersmith must have been off. Oh well.
For our 100th gallon we wanted to make something a little out of the ordinary. This thick, strong stout with coffee, chocolate and a bit of smooth oatmeal flavor will hopefully be a good cellaring candidate and have a coming out party toward the fall. It’s a bit over the top, since it has all of the big stout buzzwords, but it’ll hopefully be tasty.

Batch# 18 – Dry Stout BIAB Split batch
Make a simple recipe for our first foray into BIAB. Not very much hops, not a ton of grains, and (theoretically) fairly simple. I was in the homebrew store trying to decide on yeasts and someone brought up the idea of doing a split batch.

Batch#16 – Somertime ipa
Hoppiness is an IPA, Brewing Classic Styles
Make a sessionable IPA that is still satisfying. Ideally around 4% ABV. The last few beers we made were creeping up above 7% and will sneak up on you if you put a few back. This will still have a clean hoppy taste, but not be a day-wrecker. I took the BCS recipe above and tweaked it in beersmith in order to have lower fermentables. I honestly don’t remember what else I did to it.

BATCH #15 – ONE POUND OF HOPS DIPA
Brewing Classic Styles, Hop Hammer, modified for partial boil.
Put together a super hop powered alcohol rocket! Try for something like a pliny or Heady Topper. Moderate bitterness, very low sweetness and body, and a pop of fresh hop character from aggressive dry-hopping.
