Recently I took about 8 months off from brewing beer. I have had a lot going on in my life and homebrew had to take a back burner for a little while. But there is something about October. It just feels like beer brewing season for me. The air started getting a little cooler and I began to remember all of those little things that I enjoy so much about home beer brewing. So I crafted a recipe, got some friends together and we brewed up a batch of Hazy IPA that we are calling David Hazelhop. If it turns out to be good, I will post the recipe. I have a few ideas for some tweaks that I would like to make on it for the next time, so we will see. This was my first time using malted oats and I think I will add more of them to the next batch if this one turns out well. Here are some photos from this brewing session.
Once this batch finished up I will either try to brew a slightly different version or try an idea that I have for a Viking IPA that uses the Kveik yeast!
