A few weeks ago we met up with Scott Russell at the homestead. Scott had been kind enough to develop a special beer recipe for Gage Hill Crafts called Big Llama Bräu, and we enjoyed the brew day with him.

Now it’s time for the moment of truth with a taste test of the first batch. How did all those local Vermont ingredients flavor the finished brew? Watch the video for our unfiltered reactions and notes.

If you want to brew this beer yourself, the recipe is now available as a PDF.

Want to make your own labels for your next homebrew? Rick has written a quick tutorial about designing custom labels that are easy to apply and remove.

If you’ve tried this recipe, or if you’ve tried brewing with special ingredients like oak chips or spruce tips, please share your thoughts in the comments.
