Summer beer

Summer beer

With the Fourth of July officially in the bag, we move into the “dog days of summer” phase of the year. What have you guys been brewing up for the hot months of July and August? Are you still making Hefeweizens, Wits, and light lagers? Anyone bucking the trend and making Imperial Stouts or something? Super organized brewers already planning their pumpkin spice brews for Thanksgiving?

I’ve got one Witbier planned (didn’t get to it this weekend), along with the 5 gallons of my banana wheat beer (which is aging nicely, with the banana becoming a muted tone instead of an attention hog). Then what? Maybe a lager – I’ve had K├Âlsch on the mind for awhile. Anyone have a good recipe?
