Old ale with molasses that's not going to survive to old age methinks.

This was a most delicious bitter from around the new year. Not a recent brew, but post worthy, I think. I miss that beer...

Go big AND go home.

here's my latest Cali Common brewed this one with some juniper berries and it turned out really nice, next time though I have to switch out the northern brewer hops, just a tad too "forest like" but easily drinkable.

Very nice. Dies the juniper up the ante on the forest impression a bit?

Here's my dRye (or Ryerish) session stout. Got better than expected efficiency so it almost wasn't session. Was aiming for 1.038 got 1.041

that looks tasty! Yes, I like the juniper but didn't put enough thought into the hops and just added the berries to my standard common which is all NB. Definitely made a note on that to rethink it.

Thanks. I did a cold steep on the dark grains with this one for the first time. Added the liquor to the boil. The roast character is very subdued. Kind of reminds me of my recollections of guinness actually. Might have to pick up a can to compare.

That Ryerish looks fantastic. Great job. And what a lovely head it has too. Is it really that white?

You'll have to post the recipe for that. A use for spent grains that ends in fresh bread is welcome in my house any day.

From left to right:

1. Summit/Amarillo/Citra IPA.  Recently tapped, and still cloudy from dry hops, plus flaked oats and wheat malt in the grain bill.

2. Choke cherry Belgian Wit.  Made with the actual fruit.

3. Saison Dupont Clone

Each one is tasty.

those look tasty! How is the chokecherry? Sounds interesting, were they added in secondary and how much?
