Happy Brew Year - Happy New Beer
« on: January 01, 2016, 10:47:22 PM »
Instead of a New Years resolution, what new beer will you brew in the new year.

I want to develop a good nut brown ale recipe. Not so unique, but, new to me and I am looking forward to the test batches ;)

Hoping to finish my Helles quest, or call it quits soon. Began my quest for my house stout. Then I want to imperialize my house APA and Stout.

I've been thinking of doing a weizenbock. Never tried brewing one before although I have enjoyed a few.

I will be brewing a Flanders Red this week and plan to brew at least 10 new to me styles (mostly lagers) I haven't brewed before in the coming year.

Brewing my favorite oatmeal stout, with lots of toasted oats and a high mash temp. Probably will do what I did last time and soak cocoa nibs in bourbon, then add the liquor right before bottling along with a cup or so of cold extract of french roast coffee. Heading home in five minutes to get the strike water heating.

I want to work on some lagers in the coming months. I want a nice German Pils and Dunkel that I can repeat with good results. I'm also considering making my first sweet stout and any tips would be helpful.

I am trying to make a good Helles as well, my first one went into bottles the other day. The light lagers are a style I enjoy but have never brewed until recently.

My brew year's resolution is to brew some old favorites that I haven't gone back to for a while - my house IPA, a sessionable brown ale, my session Porter, and my Belgian Dark Ale.

A run of lagers for me...dunkel, vienna, helles.  Then off to the races with an ESB recipe I have been pondering over in my head for a while. By then, it will probably be time to start prepping some summer beers like saison, kolsch, and blonde ale.

Yeah, that one always blows out of my 7 gallon carboys!  And it sticks around for a long time too.  I do really like that strain.

For this new year, I will try a lager for the first time: a Vienna, which I hope to get to this week, actually. Since I don't have a freezer, I will need to use a cold part of our house to actually lager--something that has been in doubt with this El Nino winter, but it seems as though the cold weather is making enough of a comeback here in Western Massachusetts to give it a try. And then it's an altbier, another new style for me.

I want to try Belgian Beers.  All of them.  I worked up a recipe for a Belgian Blonde that I plan on brewing this week. Then I have plans for a Dubbel, Trippel, and a Quad.
