First beer of 2011!

Ha. So my last post was about deciding what should be the first beer of 2010. Sadly this next post is the same question, only a year later.

Let's see... last year we brewed an IPA and an Amber.

Both were fantastically delicious. But only 2 batches in a year?!? It was a slow year due to my being in China for 3 months taking a detailed study of Tsing Tao, a beer I whole-heartedly recommend when you can buy it for 23¢ USD – but not soo much if you pay any more than that.

So this year... what will it be? We've moved since our last batch, so we're curious if the difference in water will change our beer a bit... probably not, since the water's from the same source, just different pipes I suppose...

More beer stories to come soon!

First beer of 2010?

So, not sure this blog has too many readers... yet =P

But the few of you reading, anyone have suggestions for what beer we should brew for our first of 2010?

So far we've done:
  • European Brown
  • Porter
  • Golden Ale
  • German Hefeweizen
  • and a Fig Wine
What should be next?

Happy Repeal Day!

Remember remember, the 5th of December...

It had been 14 years of prohibition when on December 5th 1933 the 21st Amendment was ratified, giving back the right to enjoy a most delicious, celebratory beverage.

Shelley and I are celebrating with our German Style Hefeweizen.


Happy Repeal Day!

Summer Beer

Here at Steller Brewing Company, we've been making some pretty dark beers... our first a European Brown, then a Porter... so given it's summer time and all, we decided it was time for something a little lighter.

We just bottled our first Golden Ale.

So far it seems like it's going to be a nice, light summer ale, maybe a bit more hoppy than what we've done so far.

Can't wait to start drinking it.

Fig Wine

Inspired by a recipe in Craft Magazine, Steller Brewing has decided to take its first venture into Wine making... with our first attempt being a:

Fig wine!

It has been a blast to make so far... not all that different from beer brewing, although it takes WAY longer... so if you're impatient, stick with brewing beer.

Also, I'm getting very mixed reactions from people when I tell them about the fig wine... a few think it sounds amazingly delicious, but most think, "hmmm, that sounds weird, and not tasty". Meh! I say to them. Meh!

I just tried that little glass you see pictured, and it's gotten quite tasty aging over the past couple months. A while longer in the bottles and it's going to be mad delicious. Or maybe gross. We'll see =D

Back in Action

While this blog doesn't seem to show it, we've been slowly but surely keeping the brewing going.

Last Fall we brewed our second batch, a deliciously dark Porter, and all that's left of it is the recipe... and these kind words from Kit

Steller Brewing is born!

You've reached the home of the best beer ever (brewed by Shelley and Josh)

To your left you see our first batch of European Brown.

It came out awesome, and particularly strong.


Stay tuned for future brewing fun.
