Summer Time Treat - Berliner Weisse Recipe

Monday, August 6, 2012 2:39:59 PM America/Denver

Its summer time in case you hadn’t noticed. I sure have. Hot days and slightly less hot nights, summer brings a time for light, easy, refreshing beers. One of my favorites is an apricot pale ale. 5 or 6 pounds Light malt extract (or 8-ish pounds pale malt), half a pound Crystal 20L. Use low mash temps if you brew all grain for a light dry finish. Hop with Cascade, I prefer about an ounce at 60 min. Ferment with a clean ale yeast like Whitelabs WLP001 or Wyeast 1056. Then secondary with a can of Oregon’s Best Apricot puree for about a week or one bottle of Apricot fruit extract at bottling time. The apricot is slightly tart and blends nicely with the citrus of Cascade hops.

Q & A with HBS' Marcus Bezuhly

Q: I had some Boulder Mojo on tap last night at a local bar and it had a fantastic long lasting creamy head. As far as I know it wasn't a "nitro" variant of the beer.
How can I make the same or similar head?

Tarn Martin’s Citrus IPA Recipe

Thursday, July 12, 2012 1:47:26 PM America/Denver

Tarn recently had submitted his Citrus IPA into the Hausbrau Challenge here in Boise, Idaho. On a scoring scale from 0-50, Tarn had received a 36. That ranks on the high end as a ‘Very Good’(30-37) beer. Many of the comments from the judges expressed great compliments, as well as an honest evaluation and what they would like to see with his Citrus IPA.

Judges Comments

“This is a good beer. I am pretty sure the special ingredient is basil, but not 100%, please specify next time! Overall I enjoyed this and the base IPA is solid! Nicely done.”  - Pete Neisen

“A very enjoyable beer. Impossible to properly judge without knowing the ‘spice herb or vegetable’ used.”  – Chris Hillman

HBS’s Tarn Martin’s Citrus IPA Experience

Wednesday, June 27, 2012 7:23:18 PM America/Denver

As a beer geek, like all beer geeks, I am in search of the perfect beer. The perfect beer for me that is. A Home brewer has the distinct privilege of being able to make his own perfect beer. I have been working for months now, and I finally have it. At first I found the right grain, Golden Promise. It has every distinct flavor, and was exactly what I was looking for an I.P.A.
