Citra Pale Ale Recipe

American Pale Ales are a great showcase for some of the boldest and newest varieties of hops available to the home brewer. Differentiating themselves from European Pale Ales, US versions use clean tasting strains of yeast and neutral light coloured malts to really allow the citrus, tropical and fruity hop varieties grown in America to shine.

The hop I have selected for this Pale Ale is Citra because it is new, unique and one of the most aromatic available at the moment. That being said it would be simple enough to substitute in another variety to suit your own tastes. The yeast is a Californian strain which is clean tasting and true to style.

German Hefeweizen Recipe

Wheat makes up the bulk of the grain used in a Hefeweizen. Originating in the South of Germany up to 50% or more of the grain used in the grist is wheat and this plus the yeast used for fermentation are the main drivers of the distinct flavour and hazy appearance of the beer.

The name is derived from “Hefe” meaning “with yeast” and “weizen” meaning “wheat”. Hefeweizens are very sparingly hopped with traditional German hops and the yeast provides banana and clove character that make these wheat beers pleasingly refreshing. Served in a traditional Wheat beer glass and you have an iconic beer.

London Porter Recipe

A beer originating in London, Porter was a style that was born from a blend of beers in the 18th century called three threads, eventually a beer brewed that recreated the blend of beers and this became known as Porter. The name porter is supposedly derived from the popularity of the beer with the porters who worked in London.

Porter as a style of beer has a few variations so they can range in alcohol content from between 4% to 9.5% but all of them share a colour somewhere between Deep brown to near black, with ruby highlights being common because of the use of dark roasted and dark caramel malts.

London Porter

Brewed primarily with British ingredients London Porter or Brown Porter typically is full of caramel and toffee notes and has a hint of sweetness. Hop bitterness is medium and aroma is low or has the earthy character from English hop varieties like East Kent Goldings or Fuggles for example. The recipe for our beer is similar to that of a famous porter brewed by Fullers in London. Here is the information and the brewsheet to download.
