Ken’s Czech Lager.

I copied a recipe Ken (Village Taphouse) posted, changed the hops to German Saaz and changed the yeast to Novalager.

Very nice beer. Bready mellow lager with floral spicy hop flavors. Very poundable. It leans malty.

This is my second Novalager brew. This was brewed May 14 and kegged May 20.  It is still slightly cloudy, seems mature and ready to drink. My other Novalager also matured very fast.
Yeah, that looks fantastic.  I used Sterling to bitter mine and then I had two additions of US Saaz from Hop Heaven.  Mine is cold, kegged and waiting in the on-deck fridge.  Nice work, tommymorris.

A kitchen sink Belgian ale, sorta in the Belgian pale ale space. It's a pretty beer; the photo doesn't do justice to how brilliantly clear it is. The beer also tastes pretty good, although nothing phenomenal. A friend from out of town quite loved it, though!

Wow, Ken.  Just Wow.  That is incredible.  You have a talent to make an incredible beer photo (let alone a beer that photographs so well).

Cheers!

Thanks brother.  I'm just a humble beermaker from the midwest.  ;)

Happily.  Here's what I did...

9 lbs Briess Pale Ale Malt (93%)
4 ounces Torrified Wheat (3%)
4 ounces Baird's Extra Dark British Crystal 135-165°L (3%)
2 ounces Special B (1%)
21 IBUs of Northern Brewer from the start of the boil
½ oz US Goldings @ 5.7% for 15 minutes
½ oz US Goldings @ 5.7% for 5 minutes
1 oz US Goldings @ 5.7% for 1 minute
Fermentis S-04

OG: 1.051, FG: 1.012, SRM: 10.5, IBU: 29, ABV: 4.9%

Single infusion mash at 147° for 60 minutes.  Water was split evenly between CaCl and CaSO4.  If you haven't used S-04, it likes to produce diacetyl.  A warm rest towards the end of fermentation is helpful.  It's the only drawback I can find to this yeast.  Otherwise it starts quickly, produces a nice bready character and drops like a rock.  Cheers.

My version of New Glarus' Two Women.  Pils malt, Munich 2, Hallertau hops and Omega German Lager yeast.  They call it a "Country Lager".  I decided to call it Red Canoe for no apparent reason.  ;)

Drinking my coffee porter this afternoon.  It came out really good. Made only 5 gallons this time just to get some on tap.  Will be brewing it again (10 gallons) in the next couple weeks.
