Homebrew: The Wizard of Agnesi

Submitted by DM on Sun, 18/03/2018 - 00:59

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.   

3.5 Kg pale malt

400g crystal 150 malt

100g chocolate malt

1 teaspoon MgSO4

Homebrew: Strawberry & Lemon Wheat Fields

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 Strawberries & half with lemon.
