Homebrew Wednesday 25: Hop, Hop, Hurray!

Time to wrap up my SJ Porr Challenge 2014 beer….In this week’s episode Homebrew Wednesday I give you an update on what I’ve been up to recently and then shoot you off to footage of me adding both sets of dry hops (“hop, hop…) to Self Righteous Wookey Black Rye IPA, bottling it, and then a close up of applying one of the labels that I printed to a bottle. (…hurray!). Cheers!

Topics Discussed In this Episode (other than Self Righteous Wookey):

1. Ups and downs of over priming my beers

2. Lamotte / John Palmer BrewLab water testing kits (also available from Northern Brewer)

3. Beer Braised Beef Roast 10293823_679686131907_8089908405669407697_o

20 oz Brewery Ommegang Abbey Ale

Optional: Russet or Sweet Potatoes


1. Saute veggies in dutch oven until they start to caramelize and remove to make room for step 2

2. Preheat oven to 350F

3. Brown (sear) with beef roast on all sides and add back veggies.

4. Add the seasonings, bay leaves, beer, bullion cube solution, and beer
