Bottled Dunkel

Posted under Personal

Bottled Dunkel (german dark lager). It was supposed to be an amber bock, but it came out to dark. So, it’s a dunkel. It’s got a very traditional beer taste with hints of roasted malt and coffee.

Beer Jam

Posted under Good Food

Made it with a hoppy braggot (5lb honey, 1lb dark dme, hops). Taste just like the braggot. Slightly sweet. Just when you think it’s going to be bitter, it’s not. I thought the citra hops would make it citrus-y, but in combo with northern brewer it said, “Beer!” I really liked the recipe. Only a month left of lagering for the braggot to finish.

My final recipe for 7 Pints:
7 x 12oz bottles of brew. (10.5 cups)
3/4 vinegar
5 3/4 cups sugar
2 1/2 packs of pectin

Hot Chocolate and Mint Wine

Chocolate mint wine

Posted under Home Brew

Chocolate mint wine. The mint was too strong, kind of taste like an off brand thin mint where you can barely taste the chocolate cause the mint is so strong. Less mint leaves next time



Chocolate Mint Wine

Posted under Home Brew

My first attempt at chocolate mint wine.

A real simple recipe for my first try. 5 quarts chocolate mint leaves, 10lbs cane sugar, ec-1118. SG 1.093 FG 1.015 10% abv

I steamed the mint leaves in a canner and left it till cool before opening to try and capture the chocolate taste. All my efforts were for not as my basement smelled like chocolate for a week. It tastes like it used to have chocolate in it. The mint was a bit strong, but really tasty. I think i’ll just boil as usual for the leaves next time.

For this time i’m made up for the extra mint with extra chocolate. I was going to use 4oz cocoa powder but i used all 8oz. I also threw in a half pound of milk sugar and 5 campden tablets.

The mint grows fast from march till november, The leaves will grow back in a week after i pick them. If i can perfect this recipe, I can make it for $10. $20 for fancy yeast and cocoa.
