End of Summer Brew: Boysenberry Wheat Ale

Boysenberry Brew Label

Brewed a wheat ale with boysenberries for my end-of-summer brew. It started out tasting pretty wretched after the first 2 weeks of bottle-aging, but another week in and it's showing some good flavors, and less yeasty. I'm hopeful it will continue to mellow out in the next 2-3 weeks.

Also, I brewed an Octoberfest-style bock with a 1/2 cup of coffee and some brown sugar in the wort -- it'll be at least a month before that concoction is drinkable, but I have high hopes.

August Beer: Czech Pilz

Czech Pilsner

Bottled this weekend was the previously-mentioned Pilz. The West Coast Pale Ale was a resounding success; one of the cleaner, most balanced (sweet, light, hoppy) beers I've made in a while.

To be fair, I try to brew stuff that's not available in stores, like Pumpkin porter (a repeat favorite, coming in late October), and Coffee Bock (a new recipe for my annual Octoberfest bock).
