German Fest Bier (Helles) - Homebrew recipe

In Munich, the beer styles are very controlled by law. This beer is higher in alcohol than a standard helles, but not quite at Oktoberfest alcohol levels. It is a great homebrew beer recipe for those who want a little more kick in their beer.

Export Helles – Munich Helles

Munich helles is a beer defined by a clean, malty profile. There are hints of floral noble hops, but they are definitely not bitter.

Mackeson’s XXX Clone

This is a clone of Mackeson’s XXX. Mackeson’s XXX is a very dark, sweet, full-bodied, slightly roasty ale. Some say it tastes like sweetened espresso.

Scottish Light 60 Ale

This is a homebrew beer I brewed one summer for a friend who loved Scottish beers. It has a slight peaty aroma and flavor, but is definitely balanced to the malt.

A refreshing pumpkin ale based on an English pale ale beer recipe for your fall festivities. You can use fresh pumpkin or if you must, canned, just get it without anything added like spices or sugar.

American barleywine is similar to its British relatives, but like most things “American,” the American barleywine is bigger and hoppier. This homebrew beer recipe is a clone of the famous Sierra Nevada Bigfoot Barleywine.

This is an extract version of my best of show Chocolate Porter. It is almost the same as the all-grain version, and much easier.

Chocolate Roggenbier - A Spicy Take on Hefeweizen

This is an award winning homebrew recipe. This beer has a big, creamy mouthfeel, lots of spicy notes from the rye and fruity esters from the hefeweizen yeast. If you like roggenbier, you will love chocolate roggen.

Kell’s Nut Brown – English Brown Ale

My sister loves Nut Brown Ale so I made this recipe for her (yes she brews too). This has been brewed for several years and has won many awards at home brew competitions.

Old Rasputin Imperial Stout Clone

A homebrew clone of North Coast Brewing Company. This big Russian Imperial Stout will warm your winter nights. This beer also ages extremely well, I would save it for several years at least, but I know you can’t wait!
