James Dunn – Czech Pale Lager, light but tasty, low attenuation yeast (WLP802) left lots of flavor from all German malts and hops, Great start, thanks, James!
Kris – Butterscotch Chi Cha, and no, it was not chewed corn and spit out, he used amylase enzyme. Check the recipe, it’s a wild one, really different, light, refreshing, with good lime & ginger flavors.
Rich – NE IPA, with flaked oats, Pale Malt, dank hop flavor and aroma from Strata Hops, utilizing a 170°F whirlpool & dry hopping. The Conan yeast was a repitch from Jim Burt. Very true to style, in aroma and cloudiness.
Jim Burt – Black Rye IPA, nice roast level, medium bitter, so good!
Brian – Iron Flamingo Double IPA, this is a big IPA.
Tom – Maple Pistachio nut Brown Ale, but this one was freeze concentrated, twice! Woo, so strong, with a big maple flavor.
Great beer, fun time. Thanks to Binghamton Brewing. Don’t forget, if anyone wants to write a review of a pub, a brewery, trip, etc., please do so, and send a copy to Josh and Me. We’ll get it on the web, and you’ll be famous.
Next meeting is May, 8th.
