Beer Recipes / Re: Unusual Session Beers
« on: November 12, 2009, 01:53:14 PM »
IMO Saisons are the best "unusual" session beers. Especially if you can stand to age them with a sour culture (of course, it takes months as opposed to weeks when you sour a beer.)

Here is a recipe that is very low OG that I have played around with (I have 5 gallons aging in a carboy right now that is being aged with a sour culture and oak cubes) - it makes an interesting, very low alcohol session beer. Also, I realize the Maris Otter is out of place for a Saison technically, but you need something besides pils malt to up the "interesting factor". Also, you can add a small amount of chocolate malt to the recipe for an roasty twist. But here is the basic recipe:

Sharpe Mountain Table Beer
12 gallons
OG 1.039
IBU 39
SRM 9.6

8lbs Pale Malt (I used TF MO)
4 lbs Munich (Best Type I)
2lbs Flaked Wheat
2lbs Cara Vienne
1lb Aromatic

1.25 oz Magnum (14aa) 60 min)
1.5 oz Hallertauer Hersbrucker (3.7aa( 20
2oz French Strisselspalt at WP


Mash in single infusion at 154-156. 90 min boil. Pitch at 64 and ferment in high 60s, low 70s. Drink young and fresh!

Depending on the flat rate pallet price from NCM to you. You may only need to buy about 10 bags to save on the shipping.
I need to buy 5 bags shipped by FedEx to break even with Pallet.

Forgive me here, I'm trying to figure out what you guys are talking about? Bags shipped Fed Ex from NCM?

Is Herbie Hancock better than the Jonas Brothers?  These are the questions that haunt us as we walk the fine line between good taste and snobbery.

lol!  ;D

Seriously, I don't care what someone drinks (as long as they don't throw the can out their car window) and I will drink BMC beer from time to time. IMO what it really boils down to is how adventurous are you? Some people never get over a maturity level with their taste and can not stand anything with flavor, period. They stopped maturing taste wise when they were about 6. For them, Mac and Cheese and Koolaide is the pinnacle of their flavor empire. Most of these people eat and drink bland, flavorless foods and don't care to experiment. Many people go through their life with American Cheese, White Bread and Bud Light.

And I really think that they don't like the taste of Beer but want to have the Beer drinking experience - and really, that is what Light beers were made for in the first place!

Common, what food really goes best with Bud Light? I'll tell you - Ham and Cheese Hot Pockets!

Whether or not the beers are as good as each other, I would say they are both brewed to a high standard of quality. One just is not very interesting and tastes more like fizzy water than beer. Hell, even Bud tastes like a beer at least.

Ya'll are my bestest invisible friends evar!  :D Seriously it is amazing and I can't wait to see how this forum grows in the years to come. Thanks to Denny and Drew and Crispy and the other people who are as yet unnamed who made it all possible. A lot of work these guys put in and a lot of effort. Thanks guys and gals!

I used to do it a lot (in fact I have done 3 back to back 10 gallon batches in a day a few time before.) But now one batch is plenty, though I will brew 2 days in a row often.

Glad he did. I was going to if I didn't see you soon. I noticed you have been out of pocket. Don't be such a damned stranger now, hear?  ;D

What's up TD!!?? Glad to see you made it over here. I was fixin' to email you and ask you where you were.  8)

Yeah, but I used to go in on pallet orders and it was way, way, WAY cheaper than having to just order through them. A sack would rarely be over 35 bucks.

So you mean with shipping then?
Because I went in on a group buy and got a sack as low as $27. But we could pickup at the dock.(mid country)
The order was definitely not a pallet.


Yeah, cheap. 27-35 depending what we bought. A pallet can hold up to 42 sacks and was 127 or so to ship. Split up between several guys it is a great deal. I would order 6-10 sacks usually.

Definitely Munich malt (and lager yeast). Unless you are talking about a Maibock and that is just technically a Helles brewed to Bock strength with, in some instances, some added specialty malts and a little more hops.

OK already. There's more than one non-bean chili recipe, as there should be. I didn't examine everyone carefully enough and I'm sorry I overlooked yours.

IMO they should ALL be without beans, but that's a "Texas chili cook-off" thing. Don't try and compete in a Terlingua competition with beans.

Just wanted to make sure you got your facts straight especially since I posted such an awesome recipe.   ;)

Oh, I must have missed that. You certainly have to know what your water is.

There are three no bean chili's on the thread as a matter of fact.

Hence the reason I said: "Nice to see a chili recipe w/o beans." The first of which was just before my thread.

 ??? No, the very second response I posted was a no-bean chili recipe. So was Tesla's (his is served with a side of beans.). Not sure what you mean.
