Recipe Specials for March
Pacific Gravity will be featuring Saison as its style for June. We
don't have a Saison recipe, but we're still going to feature some great
recipes for April!
Since Saisons come from Belgium, our first featured recipe is Double
Trouble Belgian Dubbel. It's a Belgian (duh!) style, like the beers
brewed by Trappist Monks. It's malty, strong and low in hops, so it's
a natural for those of you who don't like bitter beers. Try it now for
Since Saisons come from Belgium, we're also featuring Evil Monk Belgian
Pale Ale. This recipe has become one of our most popular, and no wonder!
It's got all the flavor of the popular Belgian ales, but doesn't have
an overwhelming alcohol content. Think of it as the Belgian to drink
if you want to finish one. Brew it in April for $22.
We're also featuring a couple of English ales because… um…
England is close to Belgium. Queen Mary Brown Ale is an example of the
little-seen Southern English Brown Ale. It's malty and low-hopped, just
like a Belgian. Try it for $22 during April.
Finally, we've got a beer for those who love hops. Burton Pale Ale
is an English Pale Ale, the original hoppy beer. It's a classic recipe
and it's only $22 during April.
BeerSmith Software - Finally Ready
Some of you know that Greg's been working on tailoring the BeerSmith
software to the CCHBS malt and hop inventory. It's taken, um, a long
time because those things are always changing, but it's finally ready!
We're putting it on CD-ROM and it'll be ready to go by the time you
read this. The price is $22.95.
Kitchen Sink Garden Hose Adaptors
If you'd like to connect things like an immersion chiller or bottle
blaster to your kitchen sink, you'll need one of these handy adaptors.
They're hard to find, but we finally got a bunch of them from one of
our suppliers. They're $4.95 while they last!
Culver City Residents - Vote for Mehaul O'Leary!
We're endorsing Mehaul O'Leary for Culver City Council. As proprietor
of Joxer Daly's Irish Pub, Mehaul is a good friend to the home brewing
community. Having the ear of a City Council member can only mean good
things for CCHBS and Pacific Gravity, so vote for Mehaul on April 11.
Better yet, vote only for Mehaul, because the two candidates with the
highest vote counts are elected to the Council. By not voting for one
of his opponents, it's like voting for Mehaul twice!
