I was able to get a decent harvest off my 2nd year Chinook hop plants. I decided to throw the entire harvest at a Fresh Hop IPA! In this video I talk a little about growing and drying fresh hops, provide an overview of my brew day and recipe, and evaluate the finished beer. I am curious how my fresh grown Chinook will compare to commercially grown Chinook.

Building Styles goes further than just cut and paste recipes. In this section I will dig deeper into the styles that I brew, digging into options for ingredients and processes to tailor a recipe to your preferences and to fit your equipment; hopefully making a lot of great beer along the way.
It is March 2021 and I am planning to brew my first Pale Ale. Well, my first Pale Ale of 2021, that is. For as long as I can remember, the American Pale Ale style has been a core of my brewing routine. I have a desire to add a Modern Pale Ale to my recipe list. I wonder if, just maybe, Kveik will give me something unique.
