Welcome to Gramelspacher Homebrew

We would like to take the time to personally thank each and every one of you for visiting our site.

We created this site so we can document and share recipes we have made regardless of the final product being a success or failure or that we have found online that may interest someone else. Our beliefs are our failures become your success. Hopefully you won’t make the same mistakes we do but if so, it is okay.

Hopefully along our journey you and we will learn more about the trade’s equipment, products, methods and can make some awesome home-brew to share with our family and friends. From time to time we may post links to products we purchase from different vendors, however, we will always believe you should support your local home-brew store as much as possible for your purchases.

We hope you enjoyed your visit and we look forward to your next visit.

Don’t forget to Like us on Facebook!

Thank you for your time and have a Blessed Day!

 With honeysuckle being in bloom we thought we would share a recipe with you all this Memorial Day weekend.

We started a 1 gallon batch and I must say, it smells very good and tastes amazing in the must form. We can not wait until it is done and we can try it out.

This recipe is for 2.5 gallons of Belgian Pilsner.

We will be using Belgian Pilsner grain which is a excellent base malt for pale lager, Belgian ales, and wheat beers. The hops we selected are Saaz Hops which have a very distinctive flavour. When used in beer, the resultant aroma is very mild, earthy, herbal and spicy. Despite its popularity and noble pedigree, Saaz generally has a very low Alpha Acid level and is not very effective as a bittering hop.

This recipe was made using the BIAB (Brew in a Bag) method.

Today I wanted to make a post regarding an easy method to delabel beer and wine bottles since this can be a very frustrating task when reusing bottles and wanting to use your own labels.

The next step up from Dubbel in the monastic beer classification, Tripel is higher in alcohol than Dubbel but is actually lighter in color and body. The addition of clear candi sugar dilutes the malt bill, which helps preserve the golden color and makes the body deceptively light for a beer of this strength. Spicy and fruity with a gentle sweetness and hints of alcohol throughout leading to a dry and mildly bitter finish.

American wheat beers feature large proportions of malted wheat and are naturally a bit cloudy in appearance. American wheat beers have a bit more hop character and are fermented with a milder-tasting yeast, resulting in a more clean, neutral finish. With a spicy noble hop aroma and tart finish, it’s a spritzy, refreshing crowd-pleaser.

Given we are a site for learning the art of home-brewing I thought it was time for me to enter the realm of making beer of some sort. This is a recipe we will start once our grains and hops arrive. Hopefully next weekend if all fairs well.

After a lot of searching and comparing recipes I decided to make a Brown Nut Ale which is a dark color with a rich flavor. Other web sites show this should be mild enough for the light beer drinker and deliver enough character for all beer lovers with a finished product that will exhibit a deep copper color, fruity/caramel flavor and aroma with toasty, chocolate notes.

I know most of the time we post wine recipes and there are some of you who make mead. Here is a melomel (mead made with fruit) recipe for you. As always, we ask you to support your local home-brew store but if you do not have one close we have provided links so you can purchase from Amazon.
