Biscuit ESB

I went to a new brewery a couple of months ago called Coalition Brewing, they have a really good ESB that has a lot of biscuit in it. I really liked it and I wanted to try To make it myself, the brewery is really nice about letting you have their recipes but I wanted to try it myself.
I think I got the grains pretty close but the hops were a complete guess. I use the rest of my fresh hop cascade so don't freak out when or if you read this and you see a lot of hops at the end.

Te-Boner IPA

This is (sort of) the same Workhorse clone recipe as before, but I watched Timmy Tebro as I brewed (sorry for the crude name, but come awesome is that guy?) so I dedicated the batch to him. First time brewing with my new quick disconnects from I also got two more taps from kegco through

Since amarillo is no longer available I decided to go with citra, they're pretty similar so I think it'll taste the same. Also, I upped the base grain by a pound. Aside from that, everything's the same.

Holy Cow, I'm Famous!

The craziest thing happened to me the other day when I was at the brew store: I was hanging out drinking a sampler or two (read: three or four) and chatting with the other brewers. I asked this guy, Ben or Dave or Dan i can't remember, what he was brewing. He said he was brewing a Workhorse clone. As irony would have it, so was I. He went on to say he got the recipe for a guys blog that called the brewer for the recipe. Weird, I said, I called the brewer for the recipe. He said, yeah the guy posts all his recipes on his blog. Weird, I said, I post all my recipes on my blog, Is it poorhouse brewing? It is, Ben or Dave or Dan said. THAT'S ME I shouted (remeber the five or six samplers?)
So anyways. I'm famous. You're lucky to know me if you do that way if someone ever asks you the most famous person you know, you'll have a good answer. Too bad I screwed up my google ads account or I could get some cash off this here blog.
