Brewed my second Blonde Ale using 100% RO water with brewing salts. I am using Bru'n Water from Martin Brungard for the first time. I found it complicated at first, but played with it for a few weeks before brewing a simple Blonde Ale. Both are still in carboys.

I recently brewed a tropical red ale using copious amounts of citra and mosaic (2:1 ratio mosaic to citra in the dry hop). I bottled it 2 weeks ago to the day. Being inpatient, I will most likely throw one in the fridge tomorrow and have it upon returning home. It looks nice and clear and red and there appears to be a decent amount of carbonation when I shake it.

I would love to create and brew a breakfast style stout very soon. I'm currently trying to devise a recipe. I'd like it to be strong, but not too strong, around 8-9% ABV, and plan on adding oats, wheat, 2 different types of coffee (blue mountain medium roast beans and some other Arabica coffee I got my hands on), along with amber maple syrup from Quebec and possibly some chocolate...makes me drool thinking about it.

Still reading up on how and when to add coffee and maple syrup to beers as this will be my first attempt at this style. Tips would be quite welcome!

Man that looks delicious. If I ever make it out there I am definitely visiting.


As for coffee additions I understand cold pressing the coffee gets the best flavour without being too bitter.

I just cracked open this red ale I brewed. I bottled it 2 weeks ago. The description is 2 posts above.

First impressions - colour is spot on and quite clear. Definitely smelled the mosaic and citra hops coming through at first, but I feel like that aroma was also lost in the caramel of the carared and crystal malts I used. I had intended this to be a red pale ale with an intense tropical fruit nose, but it did not turn out like this at all. Then again, I do have a slight sinus infection, so I'll have to try one when I'm healed. My taste isn't the best at the moment. It doesn't really taste hoppy to me and my wife says she only gets caramel and a moderate citrus taste. It's quite light, just around 5%ABV

This was a 2.5 gallon batch in which I dry hopped with 3 ounces of hops (2:1 ratio mosaic/citra). I had expected it to be much, much more pungent. Any advice for future batches?
