La Malinche Blonde Stout

La Malinche Blonde Stout

by JavierMejia on 2/22/2017
All Grain | 5 Gallon(s) | American Stout | 6.2 % ABV
Mash in 160.0 (F) Target Temp 155 for 60m Sparge 155 F Flaked oats to give the beer a thick, dense mouth-feel and a smooth, silky mouthfeel while still contributing some body to the beer. Flaked barley to help with head retention and body and Crystal 20 to help import more body and a little sweetness. Smoked malt. At 5 Lovibond, the goal was to add some smokey/roasted flavor to the beer without imparting any color.

El Catrin Piloncillo Brown Ale

by JavierMejia on 10/6/2016
All Grain + Extract | 5 Gallon(s) | Northern English Brown Ale | 5.0 % ABV
A Northern English Brown Ale with a Mexican twist. Adding 1lb of Piloncillo during the last 10 minutes of the boil. Piloncillo is unrefined whole cane sugar, which is a solid form of sucrose derived from the boiling and evaporation of sugarcane juice. It tastes smoky, caramelly and earthy. Actual OG: 1.052 Piloncillo actually added at 10 min.
