A big juicy IPA bursting with fruity hops.
Rich, roasty and creamy, this vanilla stout is perfect for a cold winter day. Brew in your fermentor for 21 days, or for 14 days followed by 7 days in a secondary fermentor.
Light and crisp, this blonde ale is great for those not looking for a hop-bomb, or anything too dark and heavy. For this recipe, add half of the extract at the start, and the other half with 10 minutes remaining in the boil.
A style that has been brewed by Belgian monks for centuries, the dubbel has low bitterness and a malty body with spicy and stonefruity flavors. Ferment at a higher temperature if possible - low to mid 70s is ideal. If fermentation is getting too aggressive, take out the air lock and use asystem. If any ingredients aren't available, your local homebrew shop employee will know the perfect substitute to use. 5-6 weeks of fermentation is recommended for this style, and a secondary fermentation is highly recomended.
