Recipe of the Month
Each month, we create a new recipe from scratch, often featuring lesser-known ingredients or brewing processes. It's like delicious beer education in a glass!
Recipes of the month change on the 1st of each month.
Our featured recipes are tried and true Hoggetowne beers, sold at a discount.
Featured recipes change approximately on the 15th of each month.
ABV = Alcohol By Volume
IBU = International Bitterness Units according to the Tinseth formula. The higher this number, the more bitter the beer.
SRM = Color of the beer according to the Standard Reference Method. Numbers between 1 and 8 are straw to golden in color, 9 through 17 amber to light brown, 18 though 30 medium to dark brown, and higher than 30 approaching black. Actual results will vary slightly depending on your brewing technique.
Ingredient listings are for the all-grain version. For the extract version, malt extract is substituted for the base malts.
Our professional series of recipes come to you straight from some of our favorite commercial breweries. These are available only in all-grain for maximum authenticity. $2 of each Pro Series recipe purchased will be donated to help protect Florida's natural treasures.
