Going Pro

You may have heard the rumours, but I’m going to be opening a brewery soon. More details over here.


AG#48 – Steam again

California common recipe again. Big batch this time.


AG#47 – 20oz IPA

An IPA using 20 ounces of hops. That’s a little over an ounce per litre….

 


AG#46 – IIPA

An Imperial IPA, loosely based on Vinnie Cilurzo’s Pliny the Elder.

 


AG#45 – Anything Gose

Gose – a sour, salty wheat beer. Think crusty sourdough bread eaten by the ocean, but a beer. Once popular in Leipzig, but now a rarity.

AG#44 – Janet’s Brown Ale

Rebrew of the JBA


AG#43 – Citra Session IPA

A single hop Session IPA brewed for a wedding.


AG#42 – ZZ9 Plural Z Alpha

Gyle #42.

Also a beer made for Zoya’s First Birthday Party. Instructions were blonde, zesty, not too bitter, and using the killer Citrillo hop, with a touch of Galaxy. May or may not rival the Pan-Galactic Gargleblaster for the best drink in the Galaxy. Should leave hoopy froods knowing where their towel is.
