Lee sent pictures of two great layered beer recipes which he named in honor of the new Star Wars movie coming out. The first one is the "Imperial Storm Trooper"; a dark on bottom combination.
The second one he named a "Storm Trumer" (or Calm Before the Storm Trumer). This one is a nice clear/cloudy combo which are harder to find.
Great picture composition with the draft taps in the background. Thanks Lee!
Here is a small collection of layered beers I had tried over the past few weeks.
Here are some layering attempts that worked out pretty good...
Here are some more great examples of how easy it is to make layered beers using our layering tool.
Once again the Archor Porter makes a great bottom layer for a black and tan. Also tried the Goose Island 312 with a Saint Arnold Brown on the bottom for a nice clear 'n cloudy black and tan combination. Click on the pictures to see larger images.
Had some 6-packs and family packs to experiment with over the weekend so a little trial & error were in order. Had some successes...
It was a nice sunny day and I didn't have any dark beers in my fridge. Left without any dark/light options I decided to try a cloudy Blue Moon with a clear Harp Lager. I didn't think it would work as both beers work well with Guinness on top (Blue Moon & Half and Half - See below for pics) and probably had nearly the same density. The choice of which on should go on top was completely random and it turned out surprisingly well. Click on the picture to expand.
Probably worth naming... How about a "Blue Harp"?
I really thought this one would work seeing as this beer combo has an official name. It started off well but, as you can see, the Guinness dropped into the Molson Canadian rather quickly. It was a nice cascading effect though. Click on the picture below to get a better view.
This told me that the density of the Molson is relatively light like the Guinness. When I poured the Molson on top of some Sam Adams I got a nice clear-to-cloudy transition. See side picture.
