I’m on a simplicity kick. Nothing for a total of ten beers (only successfully completed and drank beers) can be in any way complicated. My reasons for this are a few in a row of very so-so beers that were also too complicated to be able to accurately trouble shoot without doubt. So it’s KISS only from here to a while from now.
My lager came out good, that’s one. It was merely golden promise plus cascade, and it’s damn tasty.
I’ve got a couple Munich SMaSH beers going too. One’s a petite saison smash with munich and citra, one’s a regular old
US-05 munich/cascade smash beer. Also got a super simple stout planned with 90% 2-row, 10% roasted barley, and Irish ale yeast, for a super simple dry Irish stout.
Also got a blonde ale that came out fantastic (again!) Reasonably simple beers that I’ve done before successfully are IN as far as my simplicity kick goes. Elderberry wheat may be repeated shortly too.
When you realize that your simplest beers are usually your best, then you should consider going on a simplicity kick. Sometimes you just gotta do what you gotta do.
