Homebrewing Journals

Brewing journals are a way to make notes while brewing a particular recipe. This is a complement to the normal recipe creating/editing. You can take notes throughout the brewing, fermenting, bottling and tasting. When you finish your journal for a particular beer you can give a final review and taste notes.

Nice, very drinkable beer. It has quite a bit of bitterness, but not much hop character. It might do with a bit less hops at the beginning, and a dry hopping.

Not bad. A little sharp tasting and not enough hop flavour.

It's a pretty good wheat beer, but doesn't really live up to the Orange Cream part.

Good, but perhaps a little too bitter. It could do with a bit more sweetness, and some stronger malt.

Really, really nice easy drinking beer.

Molasses is cool, but I don't like working with it.

This was a fucking killer beer. This might be the best IPA ever.

Now, having said that, I think that the calypso that I got is not for dry hopping. It's great for bittering hop, but not for dry.
