    Munich Malt and How To Homebrew Oktoberfest

    As we come into fall, it seems like both commercial brewers and homebrewers alike start to crave one of my favorite lager styles:  Oktoberfest.  This drinkable and malt forward German style lager always seems to have the best of both worlds.  It’s amber color and smooth flavor profile make you want liters and liters, and the rich aroma has notes of toasty bread, all while being dry, crisp and refreshing.  This week, we’ll talk about Oktoberfest beer and the driving force behind this style, munich malt.

    Cranberry Hemp Apple Cider

    The purpose of this BrewSummary was to find out if using cider and fruit puree instead of water with Vintner’s Best Hemp Wine would yield a better, more alcoholic product than just following the instructions on the wine base.  See how it came out, and make your own!

    Making an Anti-Viral Red

    The idea behind this BrewSummary was to use elderberries in a classic malt forward red ale and see if we could use lighter base malt and limited specialty malts to make a bright red, fruit forward beer.  And to make it healthy!
