Recipe Specials for October
October is the month to brew beers for our annual holiday party. Since the weather has finally cooled off, we're featuring some recipes most people haven't been able to brew for a few months. Plus, we're introducing a new recipe, Conflagration Ale.
We're continuing our special on our Holiday Spiced Ale because it's a great recipe for holiday celebrations. What more do you need to know. Brew it for $30 this month. (By the way, we still need a better name for this recipe. Any suggestions?)
Melrose Mild is a great choice if you want an alternative to the strong beers most people brew during the holiday season. Mild Ales may not have a lot of alcohol but they do have plenty of flavor. Try it for only $20 this month.
Conflagration Ale is based on an old favorite, Santa Monica Pale Ale. We just made it a little stronger and incorporated Centennial hops into the recipe. Does that sound familiar. Anyone? Anyone? Bueller? Anyone? (sigh) Try it for only $26 during October.
Centennial Hops Available!
It seems like forever since they've been readily available, but Centennial hops are on the market once again. If you want to alter that West Coast Ale recipe you've been brewing, give it a try as a flavor or aroma addition. Limited acreage is devoted to these, so try them while we've got them!
Fermentis WB-06 Wheat Yeast Has Arrived!
Finally, there's a true Hefeweizen dry yeast available – Fermentis WB-06. We've got it in stock now for you to try in any late season wheat beer brewing needs. Greg will be trying it in a Weizenbock during our next beginner's class, so you'll be able to try it at the annual Holiday Party.
Seasonal Yeasts in Stock
We're well stocked on a number of yeasts which are perfect for summertime brewing, including Wyeast 3056 Bavarian Wheat and 3726 Farmhouse Ale. We've also got seasonals from White Labs in stock, including Saison Blend, Cream Ale Blend, Dusseldorf Alt, Australian Ale and Abbey Ale IV. You can make great beer from any and all of these, so why not try them instead of the same old, same old? During October they're available for only $6.50.
