    I already brewed a Belgian brown ale & called it The Witch of Agnesi after a mathematical description of a particular curve.   This is a similar brown ale brewed with Belgian ale yeast, so I called it The Wizard of Agnesi.   This is a partigyle beer where two beers were made from one batch of wort.

    Mash - 1 hour 20 mins starting at 69ºC and allowed to fall to 62ºC.

    This beer was formed by making two beers from one batch of beer - a parti-gyle.   I bought some Belgian ale yeast for my last brew - 'Ey You Belgian Blonde Ale - & wanted to use it again as I had such good results with it.   I called it Magic Mountain after a field of hydrothermic vents near Vancouver Island

    I decided to brew a golden beer using cara malt & Belgian Ale yeast.

    Mash: 1 hour 15 mins.   Started at 72ºC and fell to 67ºC.   This should give me a slightly fuller bodied beer than normal, as would suit the style.

    4 Kg pale malt

    1 Kg Cara malt

    1 teaspoon MgSO4

    1 teaspoon CaSO4

    1/2 teaspoon NaCl

    Boil: 1 hour 15 mins.  

    100g Savinjski Golding pellets added 25 mins before end

    Having successfully made 2 Berliner Wiesses, I discovered that drinking exclusively 2.1% beers doesn't give you a sense of satisfaction like a viscous, chewy stout - so I made one.   A beer to be taken seriously - hence the name.

    I ran out of beer to drink.   I discovered that my Saisons taste way better with acid malt in.   I remembered how good Tooti Fruiti (a sour, lemon & lime zest beer) tasted.   I also found loads of dried strawberries (containing no sulphites) massively discounted in a shop.   I put all these things together & a Berliner wiesse was formulated with half the brew being made with St
