The Homebrew Jar of Destiny keep rolling along like a freight train as fate provides us with two more styles to explore and brew. We started this challenge 2.5 years ago and we have brewed 20 beers so far. See what the next two beer styles we’ll be adding to this list by viewing this video!

The 11th Picks from the Jar of Destiny

This Round’s Picks

John’s Pick – 7C – Pale Kellerbier

I didn’t know too much about this beer style right after the pick. At first glance, it’s a young Helles. Based on this short description, I am confident I can brew a good version of it. Timing will be important as the beer should be brewed so that it is fresh for the tasting day.

Mike’s Pick – 24B – Belgian Pale Ale

Upon review, Leffe is not a Belgian Pale Ale so our thoughts about this style being of a higher ABV that other pale ales is wrong. Still, the real challenge here lies in balancing the yeast’s phenolic, slightly spicy character with an interesting hop profile. Belgian Pale Ale is known for its crispness and is an excellent choice for the fall. This will require a bit of research and careful selection of yeast strains to achieve the desired complexity and flavor.

Thanks again for reading and thanks again to the Jar. We appreciate you both.
