A friend of mine recently started a beer project. She decided to create a mash beer that included several varieties of hops. I thought it was an awesome idea, especially since it would be a great way to use her own recipe.
The problem was that I had no idea what hops I was actually supposed to be using, so I let my friend brew it anyway. Turns out it wasn’t a good idea. The beer was pretty much just a pale, unhoppy beer. Nothing special, with a high alcohol content and a terrible taste.
Even though it’s been a while since I’ve had the pleasure of zony mash beer, I think I remember at least one of the varieties of hops being pretty weak. This may not be a problem for most people, but the taste is not something I would drink on a regular basis.
As a beginner to brewing, we were very pleased that zony mash beer was a success, but as we have discussed previously in this article, the process of brewing beer is actually quite simple and should not be a huge hurdle for someone who is just learning to brew. I would suggest going with the pale, unhoppy variety of hops, as this is what the brewers at zony brew, and the beer tastes pretty much the same as normal pale beers.
If you’re not familiar with the process of brewing beer, I would also suggest going with a pale, unhoppy variety of hops. The color will probably be a little lighter than normal, and the bitterness will be a bit less, but it will still taste pretty darn good.
If youre still not sure if you should make this kind of beer, you can read our blog post series, which cover the brewing process in detail.
If you don’t already have a homebrew kit, this might be a good project to try. The idea is to brew a beer using a combination of your favorite hops, malt, and water. To brew beer, you place the ingredients in the kettle and cook them over a period of time.
Once you’ve got your beer on the boil, you bring it to a boil again – and it’s ready to serve. There’s a good chance it will not taste exactly the same as normal beer, but it can be delicious nevertheless. If you make this, please share it with the rest of us in our zony mash beer project blog posts.
The idea here is that zony mash is an “autonomous” brew. Its purpose is to taste like other beers without having to touch the boil pot or do anything to it. After about half an hour in the kettle, you can pour this beer into a pint mug and have a beer that you can enjoy while doing other things.
This is a very ambitious project and something that was hard to pull off. The idea of brewing beer out of a kettle for the first time is probably the hardest thing to get right. This is a huge accomplishment and one that I don’t think we’ll ever forget. I can’t say I’m terribly excited about it myself, but I’m very interested in the whole process and I think it’s a really cool thing.
