    New Brew: Columbus Horse Ale

    For my 5th homebrew I took the Horse's Ass Ale recipe and added 1oz of Columbus Hops. I liked the Horse's Ass Ale - it was slightly hoppy and the honey taste came through nicely, but I was looking to increase the hoppiness and add a grapefruit taste to it. The 1oz of Columbus Hops did EXACTLY what I wanted it to do and this came out excellent! It's my favorite so far. 3 weeks fermentation; 4 weeks conditioned. Not a bad looking brew if I do say so myself.

    That sounds like a real winner! I'm already a fan of Bewitched Amber Ale, so will definitely add this recipe to the must-brew list. Steve

    Fat Tire Clone

    Fat Tire Clone: This is loosely based off of BYO's clone, but using Mr. Beer ingredients (other than the grains): 1 American Ale 2 LME- Smooth .25 lb Chocolate Malt .25 lb Carapils (I prefer Belgian, but any carapils will do) .5 oz Willamette Hops 1 oz Fuggle Hops S-05 Yeast Instructions: Steep grains in 4 cups of water at 155° F for 45 minutes. Remove grains and add 1 LME. Bring to boil and add .5 oz Willamette hops. Boil for 15 minutes then add .5 oz Fuggle hops. Boil another 5 minutes, add remaining Fuggle and remove from heat. Add the HME and 2nd LME. Add yeast and ferment as normal (3 weeks at 65-70 degrees). When bottling, try lowering the amount of priming sugar to mimic the low carbonation level of Fat Tire. Let the beer condition for at least a few months to mellow and mature for best results.

    Fermenting time and temperature

    Yes, 65 is perfect for the Mr. Beer yeast. And remember, it's WORT temp, not air temp. Why does Mr. Beer recommend 68 - 76? How easy is it to keep the beer at 65? Not easy - you have to either have a cool basement, a fermentation frig with temp controller, or a cooler and frozen water bottles. Mr. Beer wants EVERYONE to be able to brew, so they ease the restrictions so that more people can. I assure you that if you ferment at a 76 degree air temp, you will get lousy beer. If you ferment at a 65 degree wort temp, vs. a 76 degree wort temp, you will get much better beer. Take a read through the links in my signature, this kind of stuff is reviewed there.

    The lucky charms milk stout!

    Likely I will start another batch this Learn to Homebrew Day, since it requires Hop Boiling and is an interesting beer to discuss.
