Dubbel Trubbel

Here is my recipe for a spiced dubbel, not patterned after any one commercial example but rather an amalgam of several but with a bit of a twist. It is moderately strong, medium dark, spicy from both the yeast and the flavorings added. I recommend aging it well, trying it several different times over the course of a couple of years. In effect you will probably find that you have brewed several different small batches in one, as the flavors really evolve over time.

A Belgian wheat beer base with equal parts coriander, cumin, ginger, wintergreen, and star anise; ground and mixed thoroughly to add just a hint of spice.


Yarrow Pale Ale (YPA)

Digital and Plus Members Only

This recipe for a YPA came to me one summer afternoon after mowing the lawn. Yarrow, thyme, and savory have spilled out of my wife’s herb garden to become part of the lawn in one place, and they inevitably get mowed along with the dandelions and weeds.  The aroma was amazing, and so is the beer.

Christmas beers are a long standing tradition throughout the Scandinavian countries. Generally dark and malty, they are often usually brewed in the late summer, early falls months for consumption during the holiday season. Feel free to kick this recipe up a notch or two with more extract or belgian candy syrups if you want to up increase the alcohol percentage.
