The First Brew of 2011?

Posted by Jeff on January 29, 2011

Trying to figure out what to brew next…

Here are the options:

Robust Porter – Recipe is a clone of Ranger Creek Brewing Co’s Mesquite Smoked Porter.  I want to make the base beer to see how it will come out and in the future, rebrew with smoked malt.

Black IPA – I love the style and would love to brew one.  Have recipes for a Widmer W10 clone and a Barley Brown’s Turmoil clone (GABF gold medal winner).

English Bitter – This is a recipe I found in a Northern Brewer catalog that sounds tasty.  It uses Simpsons Golden Naked Oats which are described as a caramel oat… which I think sounds really interesting.  Also, I like to have easy drinking beers on tap, and this one sounds like it fits the bill.


I’m leaning toward the Robust Porter… mostly because I love the style and it’s best to have while the weather is still cold/cool, which gives me about a month or two to enjoy it…
