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.
I brew and evaluate my house English Porter in preparation for the August 2021 Dominion Cup competition. Learn about the background of my house recipe and my current thoughts.
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.
