Spring Brewing Inspiration

Took these two shots today from the same spot. One to the south, one to the north. Going to brew a couple "inspired by" brews this weekend.

I love Mt Hood. Tons of good camping along those country roads.

Jealous!  Nice lenticular clouds forming over your second peak there. 

Just getting into a volcano unit with my class, taking lots of virtual field trips to your area with the help of Google Earth. 

Are you going to throw down a Mt. Hood-heavy recipe?  RIPA perhaps?

Headed to Hood River and Bend for a few days. I hope I can get some good inspiration there.

That was my second guess. Not St. Helens.

Does that mean you're using Mt Hood hops?

Great view and truly inspirational.

Awesome pictures. Reminds me of how, umm, non-scenic this state is.

I have some Mt Hood left over. Maybe a touch for a flavor addition in a sessionable lager would be good. I get lemmon from it.

Or a late addition on a Cream Ale, Mt. Hood gives Kiwanda Cream its lovely bouquet.

I used 4 oz of Mt. Hood at flameout in my landbier. Sampled it over the weekend as I bottled it, and dang is it tasty. OG was 1.052. Will be very tasty for late spring here.

Landshark Lager clone? Sort of like a Corona clone, but instead of Mexican pee you use old Pothead pee...
