HB51 Home Brew Recipe

A couple of weeks ago, I mentioned that a hand full of Utah brewpubs were brewing up a special collaboration beer to commemorate the passage of HB51: The legalization of Home brewing beer and wine in Utah.

Each brewpub will put their own special spin on this brew and encourage Utah's home brew community to participate in making it as well. If your interested in making the HB51 beer here is the recipe.

I think an Amber ale was chosen because it's relativly cost effective to produce and that it can reveal a brewers "personal touches" easily.
