Recipe Formulation.
As a group effort we came up with three beer recipes that we hope to brew soon.
The group came up with 3 recipes. We will hopefully
brew a Brown Ale, Choke Cherry Beer and a Hazy IPA.
The recipes are in the hands of Bill Perkins who is in charge
of setting up a time and place to brew these beers.

Spring beers
notes on how to taste beer, see slides.
#1. Kolsh
#2. Witbier
#3. Helles bock
#4. Saison
#5 Saison
Please see the slides for additonal information about the tastings. Leigh does
a phenomenal job providing a wealth of information about the tastings.
Group favorite was number 4 with number 3 a close second. The number 5 saison had
more hops than the number 4 saison.
