SheppyBrew Roll-a-Style

So ... Remember in 2021 BCJP Styles to Brew ... I have several BJCP Styles that I have not brewed.

There are a significant number in that list that I don't really want to brew, but most of those are beer styles I'd at least like to try.

There is a homebrew podcast that I listen to "Homebrew Bound", and they do a thing every few episodes that they call "Roll-a-Style". Basically they have a set of descriptors listed. They roll a 20 sided die to come up with new (weird) styles of beer.

I thought it would be fun to (sort of) steal the idea.


I'm going to pick 20 of the beer styles I have not brewed and assign each a number. When I want to brew a new style of beer, I'll roll the 20-sided die and whatever number I end up with, I'll design a recipe and brew that beer.

I have more than 20 styles I need to brew, so I'll keep a list of beers on the "bench". As I go through the first 20, I'll remove the ones I brew and replace them with those from the "bench".

I probably won't be brewing for a few weeks, and I believe the very next beer I'll brew is going to be Hail Storm Summer Saison.

After that, though, I think next time I brew, I'll "Roll-a-Style" ...
