Cucumber Hefeweizen

Last year my friend said he tried a cucumber wheat while in Colorado and loved it. While I was a little skeptical of the idea of cucumber in a beer, we decided to give it a try. This post is my third batch and what I think is the best so far. I have a great tasting hefeweizen recipe I use as the base.

Grapefruit IPA


Hello again. Second batch this summer is almost complete. I decided to make a grapefruit IPA after having a Stochasticity Project Grapefruit Slam IPA a while ago. That beer was awesome.

After searching around I found an IPA recipe that appeared be a good base to start with.
