Guest Brewer: Imperial Common

image A few months ago I proposed an idea to the local KROC homebrewing club. We proposed an informal competition for beer ideas/recipes, the winners would be selected to brew the batch on our pilot system and get a release party for the beer. Ryan Thomas submitted a recipe for an Imperial Common (think: California Common on steroids, or a less hopped Barleywine) and was selected to co-brew it last month.

The release party is this Friday March 23rd from 4PM til close. Shame on me for not getting a photo of us brewing it together, it would have made a nice addition to this blog.

Ryan proposed a recipe has a lot of Victory malt and 3 different types of crystal malts for a complex malt bill. I’ve actually never heard of anybody brewing this style, so I was intrigued from the start.  Any other questions are welcome to the brewers during the release.

Stop by to congratulate Ryan on his commercial beer release this Friday.

Prost!
