Top brewers know one thing when it comes to adding flavor to their beers… “subtlety is the key”…

Add a little bit of salt to your food and you’ll make it taste good. Add a little too much and you won’t be able to eat it…

One half pound of specialty grains stands out in a pale beer. One pound or more and you are in for a ride…

One mistake I see new brewers make time and time again is wanting to add ‘more’ of something to their recipes…

A little more caramel, a little more dextrin, a little more alcohol, etc.

… and this is perfectly fine if done strategically…

If you just begin to add ingredients to your beer with no real understanding of what that ‘extra’ is going to do, then coming up with beers YOU like will be harder…

If you do understand what the ingredients will do to your beer, then you’ll be able to customize your beers with good precision and create what you actually want.

Beer styles developed by calculated ‘extra’ additions to the standard pale beer.

Add more caramel to a pale ale and you get an Amber ale… add more hops and more pale malt to a pale ale and you get your IPA…

Add a little more strategically and you’ll brew great beers… add a little more just because and who knows what you’ll get…

This is why you need to check out Better Home Brew Formula, where I walk you through different beer styles and how little additions make your beer go from one style to the other and ‘other’ changes you must do to make up for the ‘extra’ additions…

Cheers

      I know this for sure. Adding a lot of oak will ruin a beer but adding a little is amazing. I made a beer that tasted like a tree…

        That’s why I like to start with less and add more as I see fit…
