    Leffe Creme Caramels

    Had guests over yesterday so I made up these creme caramels from Merc's Cooking With Beer book. I used my 8.9% belgian pale ale I recently brewed. One for the dish, one for the chef. Damn they were beautiful. You could really taste the beer in the sauce, almost like pouring fresh wort over one...

    Smoked Porter - advice & flamings

    Hi lads, I felt like trying out some rauchmalt finally, and figure I'll try it in a porter, seeing as the cooler weather is coming up and this could be the go. I've usually just used english hops in my porters & stouts, but I'm running low on them and have heaps of US hops available (have plenty...

    Perfect Beer Project Articles like this make me cringe. Not to mention sentences like this. "Lager has dominated as the most popular beer - 73 per cent - with ales and pale ales next on 10 per cent and 9 per cent respectively."
