Bourbon Barrels

Big Brew Weekend – Russian Imperial Stout

A few weeks ago I traveled up to A. Smith Bowman Distillery in Fredericksburg. I picked up a couple 53 gallon bourbon barrels for our homebrew club (James River Homebrewers). We, as a club, had decided a while back that we wanted to try to brew a big barrel aged beer. It was a simple […]

Homebrew – It’s Saison Season!

Well, perhaps the title “It’s Belgian Farmhouse Ale Season” would be more apropos. You see, the word “saison” is french for “season”. So, the title “It’s Season Season” makes little sense.

Cooking with Home-Brew: Ralphy’s Red Ryder Chili

Now that we are solidly into football season, I thought it might be nice to share one of my wife’s ass kicking chili recipes. Also, being that this is a home brewing blog you are obligated to include a bottle or two of whatever flavor you have available at the time.

A Tasty German Pilsner Recipe

A few months ago in the heat of the summer, I was looking to brew something that was a little on the lighter side of the scale. So, I tried my hand at a German Pilsner. I had never made a pilsner so I wanted something relatively simple.

First Homebrew Batch In Several Years

I brewed my first batch of beer to coincide with a party we throw to celebrate the completion of our home renovation. It was a tasty IPA ready for judging.
