Rough Wise Guy Ale

Most of my inspiration comes from sitting on the crapper, reading through a stash of BYO magazines. The latest issue has an article about Cloning beers, giving an example of Rogue Dead Guy Ale.

Up the Ginga Irish Red Ale

Home roasted barley

Are any of you interested in home roasted barley?

I roast my own coffee beans. When I started home brew a few months ago with a friend I realized brewing also uses roasting techniques with the different malts.

Comments and advice welcome

Czech’ing it out

Back in July I spent 5 days touring around the sound and west of Czech Republic (in the midst of a month away), tasting a few (or more) of their fine Pilsners. Here is the post from my blog, thought some might find my ramblings interesting...

Though we flew into Prague Airport, that was as close as we got, as we had already been to Prague many years ago. This trip was about touring a bit of the Czech countryside and, surprise surprise, visit some fine Czech Breweries with the… Continue
