Touring rock musician/recording artist brewing 5 gal batches and 2 gal test batches - all from unhopped extracts with steeping grains. It fits my schedule. Have future plans to try a mini-mash, and immediate plans to build a small fermentation-chamber so I can do some lagering - maybe a Pilsner Urquell clone. Making ales only at this time - variations on Pale Ale, IPA, Porter, Stout, and Brown Ale.

Entered into this calculator for my own amusement in case I find myself with the ingredients to make it one day. The 60 minute hop addition is based on the analysis of the Munton's Traditional Bitter prehopped kit, which is 35 - 45 "EBU." The original recipe was created by Craig Farraway during a broadcast on his Youtube channel, Craigtube, with ingredients he had laying around. He used Cooper's LME but I cannot get that in my area so I would have to use Munton's. Do you even care?
Petes Wicked Tribute

Petes Wicked Tribute

by Fezfreak on 6/6/2017
Extract | 5 Gallon(s) | American Brown Ale | 6.0 % ABV
A loving (work-in-progress) tribute to the often misunderstood and underrated Original Pete's Wicked Ale. The Centennial addition at 55 min. was because I questioned the freshness of the Brewer's Gold hops after opening and adding them. I then replaced the (2) late Brewer's Gold additions with a single Cascade at 5m and moved the late Brewer's Gold to Flame Out (Sheesh!). Dry Hopping additions yet to be determined.

These 15 Minute Ales, using only DME and some steeping grains, taste amazing. Beer snobs would call these "middle of the road" beers, but that's ok, since that is precisely the goal. This is what I want for my day to day beer and better still, the recipes are easily tailored for strength. I like to have two or three different strengths of this stuff on hand at all times.

Mt Lebanon Session India Pale Ale IV

A mid-strength brew that will refresh you. I did not use my preferred 15 Minute and 5 Minute hops - Simcoe and Amarillo - due to the cost of those hops, and the fact that I had others on hand in need of use. Experimenting with late malt addition again as well, with the hope that a lower gravity boil will result in better hop utilization.

Rat Bastard Porter II

by Fezfreak on 10/29/2016
Extract | 5.1 Gallon(s) | Robust Porter | 5.4 % ABV
Based on my version of Kitty Hawk Porter from the Briess recipe database, which called for 6.6 lbs of Sparkling Amber LME and 2 lbs of Porter DME. I can't find Porter DME. My original adaptation used 3.3 lbs each of Amber & Porter LME and 1 lb each of Amber & Traditional Dark DME. Here, my adaptation gets an upgrade with 1 fewer lb of DME (eliminating the Amber) to bring the ABV into the proper range, and the addition of some steeped grains for more color and flavor.

Got a "Simply Beer" kit from Midwest. I wanted more color so I switched out the Golden Light DME for Amber and carried on with the recipe. I've added it here on Brewgr for comparison purposes only.

This is the third variation on the "Simply IPA" beer kit from Midwest Supply. The kit comes with 6 lbs of Pilsen Light malt syrup and 1 lb of Golden Light Dry Malt. On my first batch I switched out the Golden Light for Amber to get more color. It was excellent. On the second batch I augmented this by steeping 8 oz of Crystal 60 and 1/2 oz of Chocolate 347. This was bottled two days prior to this writing. Will update.

This is my second attempt to replicate Marshall Brewing Co.'s Atlas IPA, a beer I tried and fell in love with on tour in Tulsa, OK in 2014 at The Daily Grill in the Hyatt downtown. Probably a good thing in this case. I had three and a nice sandwich before closing and going to my room. Brought the IBU and color down to the range of the original beer.

My first "Test" interpretation of Marshall Brewing Co's Atlas IPA, which I tried in Tulsa, OK while on tour in 2014. The Hyatt where we stayed had a nice bar, The Daily Grill, and we got there just before it closed. Fell in love with this beer and manged three and a good sandwich before we were forced to go to our rooms and drink warm Pabst, of which I managed one. Cheerio!
