We love a good craft beer. We seek it out when we travel, and we're lucky enough to be blessed with a lot of it at home here in San Diego. We've also been known to brew up a batch or two ourselves.
Our Beer Recipes:
|"Piggish" IPA - Partial Mash Brewing and an IPA Recipe Modeled After Blind Pig|
This was our first partial mash recipe, and we haven't looked back since. It was loosely inspired by Russian River's Blind Pig IPA. This post also contains an overview of the partial mash brewing process.
|Piggish Rye IPA|
This is a variant of our Piggish IPA that has some Rye malt in the mix.
|Belgian Tripel IPA|
Belgian Tripel meets West Coast IPA in the style of Houblon Chouffe Dobbelen IPA Tripel. A perfect match.
Our first adventure on the dark side, and boy did it come out nicely.
|San Diego Session Ale|
A light, hoppy and not too high octane beer that is perfect for a summer day when you are having a few.
|Fresh Hop Brewing - A Wet Hop IPA Recipe|
After hand-picking fresh Cascade and Nugget hops at Star B Ranch our near Ramona, California, this is the recipe we used to brew a fresh hop IPA with them.
|All Grain Brewing on the Stovetop, and a "Half Nelson" IPA Recipe|
An all-grain beer featuring Nelson Sauvin hops, done on the stovetop.
|IPAison - A West Coast IPA with Saison Yeast|
A marriage of a West Coast style IPA malt/hop profile with a Saison yeast.
|Batch #4 - Late Extract Addition|
A recipe from our pre-partial-mash days, with a discussion of how important using late extract addition is when making a West Coast IPA.
