I feel like I've brewed a lot of Amber / Red beers lately. Currently, I have 4 homebrews on tap, and they are all in that color range.
- Falling Leaves Autumn Saison ... my Autumn "Seasonal Saison". Sort of an Oktoberfest with a French Saison character.
- Steamacularly Common ... a "California Common" brewed in tribute of Anchor Steam upon closing of the brewery.
- Buckwheat's Belgium Pale Ale ... SheppyBrew classic BPA. Favorite of the Beer Model. Currently the lightest in color, but still in that amber range.
- Humdinger of a Hootenanny ... Kentucky Common. currently the darkest of the beers I have on tap. Almost a "brunette", but still in the red range.

I subscribe to and watch various BBQ Youtube channels. One of my favorites is Hey Grill Hey.
Recently, Susie had a video called Amazing Smoked Chicken Bombs with a cheesy jalapeno center! So easy anyone can can do it!.

I brewed Humdinger of a Hootenanny (Batch 345) the weekend before Learn to Homebrew Day. I obviously had to have something to brew on the first Saturday of November (today if you're reading this the day it publishes)
That yeast has been sitting in my fridge since then, and I always had expected I'd use it to brew a Category 28. American Wild Ale with it.
I pretended to roll the Online 20 sided die and pretended that I rolled ... 13
13 corresponds to 28C. Wild Specialty Beer, a pretty wide-open style.
An American Wild Ale with fruit, herbs, spices, or other Specialty-Type Ingredients.
I decided to go with a simple base beer with mango fruit. The "Wild" character would come from the Wildbrew Philly Sour yeast.
My recipe is
