JBK Own ESB

Post by Deebee » Fri Dec 05, 2014 12:42 pm

Ok. I have heard that another forum have made their own " forum IPA"

Whats the verdict on us doing one of our own on JBK?

A recipe to be agreed on by all of us, and then we can all have a crack at brewing it.

thoughts?

Sounds fun, I'll certainly have a crack at brewing it.

great idea!! It would be interesting to sample people's different attempts at brewing it.. or even see people's tasting notes. I second this motion! It needn't necessarily be an IPA - vote on beer style?

Good idea

You'd need a series of polls, firstly for the general type of beer, then for for the base malt, then for any caramel, then for any toasted, then for any roasted, adjuncts etc and so on for hops and yeast and gravity

That is if we wanted to be super organised about it :o
Planned: Green Hop ale
Fermenting: Nothing
Bottled: Home grown Halletau Mittelfruh golden ale, centennial golden ale, Brown Kolsch, Strong Burton with Brett C

Or maybe a mod or admin should take care of the formalities.

That would be a darkish pale ale, wouldn't it?
