Brew U only has one professor, and that is not me. I’m a student of experience, and that means I get to make big mistakes and remember them each time I open a bottle of mediocre beer. It means I get to have great successes by trying new things, and hopefully I can pinpoint what made that batch so great. Brew U is not a hub of brewing information, nor is it meant to be. Brew U is the documentation of a learning experience.

My goal is to get one recipe exactly where I want it to be. For this year, that’s a Red IPA. I will only brew this beer for a whole year. Everything that goes into creating this recipe, changing it, and tweaking it will be included here. I’ll give you my recipes, my reasoning, and my impressions, and I’ll even take you to competition with me and share the results.
