K-Ration Stout Recipe

This stout is dark, thick, and extremely rich. This recipe was brought to us by Chad, and was one of the award winners at our 2012 JCBC Homebrew Contest. With just over 19 pounds of grain, you’ll need to be careful that you can actually mash this!

Irish Red Ale Recipe

This recipe comes to us from Rob, who brought this to our last meeting. He says it tastes best on tap with nitro, but carbon dioxide will still make it taste great. Enjoy!
