Using Additions in Homebrewing

Once you feel you have mastered All Grain brewing, using additions is a great way to advance your brew and introduce new elements and flavours. But much like ice cream it’s still essential to get your base correct before adding your rocky road or raspberry ripple. I have a couple of trusty base recipes for APA, IPA and pilsner which I use when experimenting with additions. Once I smash it, I then play around with the grain bill to tweak and perfect the recipe.

Yellow Belly Imperial Stout

Free from nuts… and cowardice. In an age where additions are liberally used to bring interesting flavours into brews the idea of a stout that tastes of peanut butter and biscuits yet contains neither is intriguing to say the least. And if that isn’t interesting enough the backstory and the end story makes a for a cracking tale while propping up the bar.

Your Prime Time Companion

I love old classic cars. I’ve even attempted to restore a couple. As a kid, I fell in love with the Ferrari 308 GTS – an iconic vehicle of its time, but what truly secured it in history was the equally iconic (you know where I’m going with this) Magnum P.I.

American IPA Recipe

All grain American IPA recipe by Home Brewtique.

Originating from Germany in the 1980’s, Magnum provides deliciously clean and crisp bitterness to any beer, but it works especially well in a Pale Ale where clean flavours are called for. Adding at First Wort has the added benefit of a smoothness that helps reduce any perceived harsh overtones, complementing the huge hop burst of an American IPA.

How to Create More Time for Homebrewing

There’s no escaping it: all grain brewing is time consuming. It’s bloody good fun and the results are (usually) well worth the effort, but it can sometimes be a challenge to find a 4+ hour time slot to get it done.

Oddly enough, even the fun things in life need a bit of attention to make happen. But we’re always glad when we do prioritise the stuff that makes us smile.

Platinum (German Pilsner) Recipe

Frits Takken from The Buckland Brewers shares this great recipe for a German Pilsner. “There are so many excellent hops now available to us.” he writes, “my beers are more malty than hoppy but I like the German lager hops like Perle and Saaz.”
