Summer brews

6 posts in this topic

So it's January in MI. I should get on the treadmill, but in keeping with the only resolution I made that I intend to keep (unhurried brewing in advance).  What are your recommendations for summer brews?

Session beers are good for summer

Here's a good link for season beers

For me, anything light tasting, light in color, and low alcohol.  Remember that both beer and the sun will cause you to dehydrate, so you don't want heavy alcohol beers.

I have Helles Spring Lager waiting in the fridge and an Austin Pils fermenting at 53F. I'm thinking of doubling down on those  plus a Czech Pilsner and maybe some Aztec for fillers.

 

MiniYoda, thanks for the links, lot of good suggestions in there.

 

So many recipes I have not tried yet!

 

Thanks all.

Personally, some of my favorite beers to make for the summer is just the regular Weissbier refill and adding fruit brewer's extract at bottling.  Cherry Wheat, Apricot Wheat, Pineapple Wheat -- I've loved these and I'm normally not even a big fan of fruit beers.  I have a Blackberry Wheat that will be ready in a couple of weeks.  They're good year-round!  Recipes I've done are below.

 

All the best,

Kevin
