Fullers Porter Clone Recipe

Fullers Porter Clone Recipe

As part of my submissions for the Manchester homebrew expo in Manchester Beer Week at Beer Nouveau I brewed a Fullers Porter clone recipe. This is one of my favourite commercial porter beers with great malty flavours and a hint of chocolate. I used quite a few sources to put this recipe together and tried to stay as close to […]

Boddingtons Bitter Clone Recipe

Boddingtons Bitter Clone Recipe

I’d not done a brew day for a while after the Green Hopped Munich Dunkel (and an Imperial Stout which needs it’s own write up) as we’d had quite a lot of building work going on over the lead up to Christmas and into the new year which had prevented any brewing. The Dunkel had just run out on keg […]

Munich Kellerbier Recipe

Munich Kellerbier Recipe

By way of a follow up to my Saufbruder / Homebrew Expo post, one of the earlier iterations of that beer was entered into the Welsh National Homebrew Competition 2017. It placed bronze in the Amber Beer category and the judging notes provided me with some much needed critical feedback. This Munich Kellerbier was brewed in January 2017 and a […]

One of the beers available to try as part of the tour was a NZ oatmeal Pale: All Gone South. This had a massive amount of New Zealand hop aroma and flavour against the mouthfeel of the oats […]

Black Cat Porter

Well, what a great Christmas and New Year that was! To help celebrate, I kept good on my promise and made a shorter all grain brew to have a Porter ready for Christmas drinking    The Boil and Hop Additions   This was based on a recipe I had done back in May 2015 for a partial mash: part all grain – […]

Honey Saison Recpie

This has turned out to be a pleasant batch. Worthwhile posting the recipe if anyone were interested in having a go at a Saison, but not having done one before (process sheet and calculations courtesy of BeerSmith) based on my own tinkered recipe for a Belgian Saison from a number of sources (Brewing Classic Styles getting a particular mention):   Recipe: Honey […]

Wonderweizen?

So this was the first all grain recipe I made using my new boil kettle, mashing bag and homemade wort-chiller.  Initial thoughts were that it was tainted in some way, but after a few weeks in the bottle the consensus appears to be that this is actually quite good, but a little on the weak side at 4%. I was having a bit […]
