Past Brews


NoVa Saison

Orange Mead – this is a 1 gallon trial batch of a sweet orange mead, using zested orange peel, clove, and cinnamon sticks for flavor.

Milk of the Poppy Stout – this is a sweet stout brewed with white wheat malt, caramel malt, chocolate malt, roasted barley, and plenty of lactose for a sweet taste.  Named after a painkiller drink in the Song of Ice and Fire books (which I’m currently reading).  ABV: 5.7%, 36 IBU, 31 SRM, 207 calories/12oz.

Honey Porter – a bold porter with a lots of honey and a smooth taste. This porter is lightly hopped, to balance the malt with just enough bitterness.

IMG_3346Pale Ale – this is a light colored pale ale, brewed with some Vienna malt and hopped with 2oz total cascade hops.  It’s a very drinkable session beer, but I threw in some Willamette hops at the end of the boil, which I’ll do without next time.

Fortune Favors the Brave Imperial Double IPA – this is one hopped beer.  Brewed with 14 total ounces of hops, added at three different stages, including cascade, simcoe, columbus, and centennial, this is a clone recipe for Pliny the Elder (Russian River Brewing).  ABV: 7.1%, 200 IBU, 271 calories/12oz.

photo (8)(Brewer Favorite) Shenandoah Valley Winter Welcome – a holiday India Pale Ale (IPA) brewed with UK malt featuring Centennial and Cascade hops, giving a fresh citrus and pine aroma with a balanced malt taste.  Brewed based on the seasonal Sierra Nevada Celebration.   ABV: 7.1%, IBU: 65.4, SRM: 13.4, calories per serving (12 oz): 225.
