Deja Brew, deja brewing

Friday was another beer brewing night at Deja Brew. Five kettles were in operation for our group to make the following:

Off Kilter Scotch: Full-bodied & malty, a Scottish style strong ale.

Downtown Brown: Similar to Smithwick’s Ale. Light in body, heavy in flavor

Llevar Porter: If you like Ravell , you’ll love this one. Vanilla accents

Red Rider Ale: Similar to Killian’s Red. A mild hop content, and smooth taste

Light Irish Stout: This recipe is lighter than the dry, intense stouts of Ireland.

We'll go back in three weeks to bottle and bring home the goods. If you are looking for something different to do with a group, consider brewing some beer. Fairly easy work, nice facilities, excellent guidance from Ray, Donna, Mike, Greg, et al. A good excuse to cook while sampling some of the varieties made by others.

How easy?
As Greg put so well: "beer is meant to be brewed with one hand. The other holds a mug."
