It is important to note that the way I store the main recipes is in a generic term. A lot of times I don’t add my notes or tweaks to the recipe until I am very satisfied with the tweak. Also, portions like my efficiency are usually set to 72%, but that does not always mean that is the efficiency I got. So tweak my recipe to your system is all I am saying. I also want to ensure you that every beer I list on here, I have brewed. Every one of the beers I have listed below have either won awards, received an Honorable Mention in a best of show, or have been huge hits with my beer loving/homebrewing friends. I’ll leave the mediocre ones off the list below, those still need some work.
Note: Some of these recipes use home roasted malts. I have a section on how to make them. Check it out here if any of the recipes you want to use, have these malts in them. If you have any questions, Email Me.
Myfa King Honey Cream: This beer was a hotly contested beer in the 2015 Manty Malter’s Cream Ale competition and made it to the final 4 in the best of show. The 2 of the 3 BJCP judges in the group all had this as their top pick, and the 3rd had this as his number 2 pick. Sadly, we went by majority rules and it was kicked with a 4th place honorable mention by a very narrow vote. Did I mention it’s an extract recipe!
Vader’s Fist Chocolate Stout (Original Extract Version): Overloaded with Chocolate Malt, but well received in competition. This was the beer that I won my first medal with, and got me interested in judging competitions. It also lost a “Best of the Fest” award at the Manitowoc Brewfest by 4 votes one year…..dang, so close!
Vader’s Fist Chocolate Oatmeal Stout II (Revision 3): A scaled back version of Revision 2, it’s a bit more of a classic and the current version I brew.
Hand of Judgement Smoked IPA: A very lightly smoked American IPA.
Skywalker’s Legacy Pale Ale: A classic American Pale Ale with a bright hop presence and honey-like malt backbone. This has also taken 1st place as an IPA as well as 3rd as a Pale Ale.
Corellian Gold: This is my take on a pre-prohibition lager.
Myfa King Face Hurts: OK, you want big hop everything? This is the beer. A pound of hops in this 6 gallon recipe, plus hop shots. This started out as a Heady Topper clone but I didn’t have access to the right hops, so I made adjustments. Turned out fantastic.
Chandrilla Common: A not-so-common California Common which does not use Northern Brewer Hops. It’s one of my highest scoreing beers with an average in the mid-40’s, It’s proof that although I don’t use classic ingredients for the style, it’s the final product that make the beer.
Land of Lincoln Pale Ale: A resiny and citrusy pale ale with a caramel-like and biscuit malt backbone. The key is in the victory malt.
Myfa King Wit’s End: A witbier that uses fresh orange zest soaked in vodka to give it a bright and clean citrus aroma and flavor. I’ve gone through 15 gallons of this in 4 months between 3 parties. A keg of this was destroyed in one night by 5 guys on a hot summer night. Need I say more?
Dark Side of the Moon: A Black Wit, which was a surprise sleeper hit at the Jaycee’s Beer Lover’s Brewfest. It was a lot more well received than I was thinking and even acquired a small group of fanboys who pretty much drank this most of the night.
Myfa King Porter with Thai Ginger: Just a funky black roasty porter. Lots of chocolate and a hint of Thai Ginger.
Myfa King Beer Gose Down Your Neck Hole: A blood orange Gose made with Himalayan Pink Sea Salt, coriander, and Blood Orange Candi Sugar.
