  1. So firstly, I’m assuming we’re going with an ale? Or is someone stepping up to lager the brew? For my 2 cents I say we go with something “sessionable” but what still has character. Maybe a Brit mild or bitter. Or a good ole’ American pale ale.

  2. I put a couple recipes through Tastybrew.com and got some good looking beers, but since I’ve not gone AG yet I have a few questions. Since we’re shooting for a 10g batch, what’s the boil volume going to be? (I put in for a 12g boil but hey, I’m known to be wrong. Really, REALLY wrong. Just ask my wife.)

    American Amber
    15 lb US 2-row
    5lb Crystal 60L
    1oz Magnum 60min
    2oz Willamette 5min
    2oz Willamette 1 min
    Maybe an abbey yeast?

    American Brown
    18lb US 2-row
    2lb Crystal 60L
    1lb Honey malt
    1lb Chocolate malt
    2oz N. Brewer 60min
    4oz Cascade 5min
    2oz Cascade 1min
    California Ale yeast?

    Whaddaya think?

  3. Nobody come up with anything else yet? Well, for those interested, here’s what Tastybrew came up with for those 2 recipes I put in earlier:

    OG 1.053
    FG 1.013
    IBU 34
    SRM 16
    ABV 5.2

    OG 1.059
    FG 1.015
    IBU 38
    SRM 23
    ABV 5.7

    Also came up with a bitter:

    12 lb 2-row
    .75lb Munich dark
    .75 Carafoam
    .5 Chocolate
    1.5 oz Brewer’s Gold @ 60 min
    1.5 oz Fuggles @ 5 min
    1 oz East Kent Golding @ 2 min

    OG 1.039
    FG 1.010
    IBU 32
    SRM 12
    ABV 3.7
