Czech Out My Pilsner

For my second lager, I decided to go with the Czech (or Bohemian) Lager from Brewing Classic Styles. The Czech’s invented the Pilsner style of beer in Plzn, Czech Republic in 1842. It was called Pilsner Urquell and it is still around to this day. Since my wife is part Czech, I decided that this would be my… Continue reading Czech Out My Pilsner

American Lite Lager

Almost 5 years ago, July 11, 2013, to be exact, I brewed my first beer. An extract version of Blue Moon. I had no idea what the fuck, excuse my French,  I was doing nor did I know how far I was going to go with this hobby. In the almost 5 years I have… Continue reading American Lite Lager

Sometimes life gets busy, but for those interested, I thought you should know how it turned out. Before we went on the trip, I took a bottle to my local homebrew… Continue reading River Rat Beer Update

Been brewing a bunch of small batches this summer, partly to experiment and partly because I can do them inside on the stove and I don’t have to drag out… Continue reading Brewing our House Pale Ale

Another beer…

Chocolate Stout I really meant to get another post up on food but I guess that didn’t happen. Instead, I brewed a chocolate stout. I wasn’t 100% on how it would turn out, so I opted to brew another 1 gallon batch instead of the normal 5 gallon batch most homebrewers do. Who wants 5… Continue reading Another beer…

Bavarian Hefeweizen

Beer. Cuz sometimes you don’t feel like grilling. Had a few hours to myself yesterday for a change and decided to brew 2 gallons of Bavarian Hefeweizen. Weather was nice, sunny and around 65F so perfect for brewing some beer outside. Got the wort cooled and into 2 1gallon carboys and pitched the yeast. I know… Continue reading Bavarian Hefeweizen
