Beer Recipes

Traditional Styles:
Maredsous BDSA 2011 - Same wort as BDSA 2011, used dregs from Maredsous Bruin
Belgian Dark Strong 2011 - 1.089, Blend of Achouffe/Rochefort yeasts, complex malt bill
Belgian Dubbel 2011 - A few changes: lower IBU, WLP575 yeast, real D2 syrup, and softer water.
Achouffe Pale Ale - BPA wort with dregs from Achouffe - nice big Belgian phenols.
Rochefort Pale Ale - BPA wort with dregs from Rochefort 8 - nice mild fruitiness
Belgian Pale Ale - I made a pretty traditional grist and tried the White Labs Yeast Blend WLP575
French Saison - A traditional Saison grist with a touch of acid malt and fermented with Wyeast French Saison yeast.
Old Ale - this is an old world version with English treacle, Oak and Brett C (which was originally isolated from a stock ale barrel)
Belgian Golden Strong -  A Classic middle range Belgian Golden Strong with WLP500 (Chimay) yeast. It had some super attenuation and is now over 10% and has a lot of alcohol warmth. It will be aged.
Belgian Dubbel - my attempt at the style with a big focus toward dark fruit, and tried to make my own candi syrup. Also with WLP500 (Chimay) yeast.
California Common - I brewed this to be competition worthy. I got the malt very right but need a ton more hops.
American Amber Ale - A true West Coast hop bomb. Brewed for my Sister's Graduation.
2010 Scottish 80 - Brewed to Jamil's recipe except with some Oatmeal to improve head retention and mouthfeel.

Fantome Noel Dark Saison - dregs from a bottle of Fantome de Noel added to my Dark Saison wort and will age on some Spanish cedar used for cigars.

Spring Gose - a quick sour beer. I made a twist on the Classic Gose and added cranberries and zest from oranges and lemons. Very drinkable.
Scottish Stock Ale - My Scottish Ale formed a bunch of Diacetyl after using gelatin (reason still unknown) so I added the dregs of Mikkeller It's Alright
Avery 15 Old Ale - I liked the previous of Bitter batch so much a had to pitch a gallon of Old Ale wort on the yeast cake.
Avery 15 Bitter - Used Avery 15 (or Drie Fonteinen) dregs in my Best Bitter wort. This beer is super fruity with very little sourness so far. I just wish I made more.
