Havenít brewed in a while, however I enjoyed blending the most. Iíd often work with rye, oats and wheat therefore the actually style may indeed be regarded as Specialty Grain. Arguably enjoyed alternative grains the most. Anyway, I blended together a Witbier with a rye IPA. It came out decent.


Iím excited to start blending sour beers, but that wonít happened for at least a year.

As to the specialty grains, I used to use quite a bit of rye, but I havenít for a while. Now I use oats in almost every beer that I brew.

Saisons. Sours. Partigyle beers (sp??) Odd styles or unusual ingredients.

I primarily brew beers I like nowadays. IPAís and Pilsners. When I first started brewing years ago I tried brewing clones of commercial beers I liked. I gave that shit up. I still occasionally brew something my wife likes. Unfortunately, it seems like it takes her forever to drink it. My keg frig only holds two cornys. I try to have at least one beer on tap at all times. I enjoy brewing, but I do it more nowadays to save a few bucks on the beer I drink.

80% of the beer I make are straight up single IPAís - canít buy IPA this fresh/hoppy in this area and its the style I prefer to drink. I brew a ~9%abv barleywine and baltic porter each year, and a couple experimental extract 5 gal. batches during the summer.

Iíd be interested to find out what type of character this honey has.

Date honey is made by pressing dates and has the consistency of honey, a very deep amber colour and is extremly sweet.
It is called "Silan" in Israel

another one with fresh pomegranate juice added which should give it fantastic colour and flavour


Ever consider using/making pomegranate molasses?


What is that, and how do you make it?

I can buy "normal" stuff cheaper than I can make em, unless I get ingredients (read: Hops) for discounted prices. But something that a brewery might do as a "one off"? I can brew a batch for the price of a bottle or two. I find that thatís where the savings in homebrewing is.

I like to have a good 6-7% IPA on tap at all times.

I tend to make a lot of Tripels and Saisons, too. The yeasties love the warm Florida weather and give me some good funky brews.

Saisons, tripels, tripel IPAs, smoked beers because I can [try to] brew them much cheaper than I can buy them.
