Homebrewed Tarot


Well     , there's no sense in having a site called Homebrewed Tarot if you don't talk about beer. So, I will.ream

I've always wanted to try a cream ale. I really like Genesee Cream. There are several opinions on how best to do this. I decided to use the ingredient for an American pilsener, but ferment with ale yeast.

The higher temperature results in a more complex flavor, which I like.
