Shoulders of Giants Brewery Home Brew Recipes
We call our home brewery Shoulder of Giants Brewery and like to name all of our beers after the scientists that inspired them. It’s more fun that way.
Please bear with us as we add to the recipe list. It takes time to write all of it!
- Kaku Pilsner – an aromatic pilsner that’s a bit strong, but still great. As it’s a lager style, we highly recommend some sort of temperature control to keep things cool while they’re fermenting. Lager styles can be a big more difficult, so for those just getting start in all grain brewing, perhaps wait a little bit on this one. That being said, the Kaku Pilsner is on the strong side and has plenty of hops in it, so there’s plenty to hide behind if it doesn’t go completely right.
- Lemaitre’s Cosmic Egg Saison – a varied saison with a bit of a kick. This is a fun one that’s not too fussy for a saison. Saison yeasts can be a little finicky sometimes, but the recipe is pretty robust. Minimal equipment is needed for this one, but it may be a good idea to try to keep this one a little bit warmer. That’s what saison yeasts like after all! However, this beer will probably hold up even if fermented at slightly cooler temperatures. For anyone trying to get into saisons, give it a go!
- Priestly Pale Ale – a nice, easy drinking American Pale Ale. This recipe is pretty standard and on of the first we came up with from scratch. It’s based on a basic barley base with a few other malts thrown in for interest. Then it’s packed full of American hops. This beer is a great place to start if you’re just getting into all grain brewing.
