Time to kick it up a notch

I decided to build myself a Keezer, after spending too much time reading on the "Net"


So of course the next step was to add faucets and get some kegs. I have yet to try kegging, but I have three candidates in carboys:
A Honey Wheat Ale with orange zest (Midwest Boundry Waters Wheat modified)
A Classic American Pilsner Lager
A Light American Lager

The last two recipes are from the "Brewing Classic Styles" book

Next up to brew is another batch of NB's Dead Ringer (Two Hearted Ale Clone)
This will be my third time that I have brewed this beer and I just can't go without having some of this great beer in my reserves.

Me too!



Sadly, the old school Kelvinator died so I am working on rebuilding with a new freezer.

cranberry ale

Tried out a new recipe today, Cranberry ale. 9 lbs of 2 row, 1 lb wheat, 1 lb crystal 60l, 1 oz hallertauer, 1 oz cascade, and good old safale 04. I have 3lbs of crushed cranberries mixed with 1.5 lbs of honey to add to secondary. Should be a crazy secondary fermentation. Wondering if anyone has had any luck with real fruit in secondary?

I have only tried fresh watermelon juice in a wheat secondary. I did listen to the Jamil show podcast about fruit beers. He split a batch three ways, and did extract fruit flavor, fresh fruit and Oregon Puree. He said the best balance was with the fruit puree.

I would imagine you would want to break the skin of the cranberries. Would blanching them achieve that?

Good luck!

cranberry ale

Pureed the 3lbs of cranberries with 1.5 lbs of honey, and put in freezer to break down cell walls. Will pasteurize then throw in the secondary in a week. I know I will have a problem with pectin from fruit, so gonna add some pectin enzyme tabs to eliminate that. Should be a good batch.

What watermelon recipe did you try? Read about that one on homebrewtalk that won the award, and was thinking of trying it soon. Have to find a really ripe tasty watermelon to use, and need 8 cups of juice. Sounds like a great summer beer.

Another recipe just created is fresh ginger ale. Always loved the soda, thought the beer would be best. MMMMM

It was a HBT recipe I found.... don't know if it won an award?? It is a really good wheat beer. I just would've doubled the watermelon juice. Should be at least 8 cups. I was going to brew it again, and just use some watermelon extract. I'd rather eat the watermelon

I got an extract kit for Christmas and brewed it today. White House Honey Porter.

I drank some Blind Pig and Pliny the Elder (clones) while brewing. Damn fine day!

Kona blue shows dirt and smudges a little too much. Will look sweet with some accent lighting on it though.

Looking forward to seeing the final result!
