Double-Decocted Czech Dark Lager

FREE

This beer is in the style of U Fleků, the best-known Czech example of this style, and uses the mash schedule from that brewery. It is a little different from the common schedules that I use. When pulling decoctions, take about 1⁄3 of the thick part of the mash to heat in your decoction kettle. Maintain the main mash at the current rest temperature until the decoction is finished. The recipe uses a slow, traditional lagering schedule.


Step-Mashed Kölsch

FREE

It is possible to produce a Kölsch in less time, but Kölsch yeast is notoriously difficult to clear because it is a powdery yeast. Giving it sufficient classic lagering time does help it clear, and it also helps reduce some of the sulfur notes produced by the yeast. Kettle finings or post-fermentation clearing agents (even mechanical filtration) is recommended if the beer isn’t fully clear. Kölsch should be a brilliantly clear beer, so please pay attention to this important part of the style.


Parti-Gyled English Pale Ale and Light Mild

FREE

Create two recipes, but use the same grist for both. For the second batch, change the brewhouse efficiency setting to one half the first recipe (in this case, 65% and 32%). Each recipe has different sugars, hops, and yeast. But read the recipe — these beers are blended before they are fermented! You will likely have to adjust this recipe after brewing to use your system efficiencies based on your sparge techniques.

Home Pale Lager (1915)

FREE

Home Brewing Co.’s Assistant Brew Master Alphonse Gosch gives no information as to whether this beer was lagered at low temperature. He does say the beer was racked to casks after eleven days, which suggests it was not further processed.

Home ULIA Porter (1904)

FREE

This was a one-off brew that may look to have been a little harsh due to the quite high proportion of black malt and the low level of pale malt, but it proved to be a very nice brown porter when I reproduced it. My research has not turned up the meaning of “ULIA.”


Gordon Strong’s Weizenbock

FREE

Weizenbocks will use malted wheat for at least half the grist, but there are many kinds that can be used depending on the desired color of the beer.


Sly Fox Brewing Co.’s Morning Brew Coffee Blonde clone

FREE

The blonde ale itself was made with a simple malt bill and low bitterness — a little lower on the bitterness scale than normal since the coffee, even though it was cold-brewed, would still add some sharpness.


Tropical Punch IPA

FREE

The use of yeast strains specifically chosen for their thiol enhancing capabilities are becoming common. Here is a way to optimize their use.

This recipe is a modernized take of a classic American pale ale using some of my favorite ingredients.
