DIY DOG 2017
The keys to our kingdom, continued...
It has now been over a year since we released the recipe details for every BrewDog beer ever made. The response to our DIY Dog anthology was nothing short of amazing; a justification of the decision to give back to the community of homebrewers who have supported us since we mashed in for the first time in 2007. When we made the announcement we said DIY Dog was intended to be a repository rather than a snapshot; something to be expanded as we continue.
So today we are launching DIY Dog 2017 – updated with 27 new recipes.
Yes, the latest update brings the total of comprehensive homebrew-ready BrewDog recipes to 262. Each and every one detailed in a free download for you to recreate, bastardise and modify at your leisure during your homebrewing escapades. Almost all of our epic brewery team began their interest in beer by working on their own creations as homebrewers; DIY Dog is your chance to work on theirs. So what new additions have we made to the pack as part of its third iteration?
We have recent releases such as Semi-Skimmed Occultist, our small batch Vermont IPA and the victor of our own homebrewing contest, Tom Doyle’s Tropic Thunder. Also inside is the hugely popular Gin Blitz and the beer that won #ReBrewDog – Hello My Name is Ingrid. Plus if you’ve recently found yourself wanting to have a go at the style of the moment, the recipe for our New England IPA collaboration with Cloudwater is also in DIY Dog 2017!
So if you wish to take up the challenge to recreate our latest beers then you can get hold of the recipes here. We have also switched up the introduction to DIY Dog, giving you more insight into how to totally nail that brewday and a checklist of things to account for to ensure it all passes as smoothly as possible (plus, tips from our brewers as to how become a homebrewing ace along the way).
A decade in the making, DIY Dog was the summation of our desire to pass on all that we have learned, as we approach our tenth anniversary. With DIY Dog 2017 you can head back in time and resurrect your favourite from any point in our history. We firmly believe that companies who cling to their secrets for generations have it backwards; giving the people that buy your products a chance to put their own spin on them can only be a good thing, for everybody.
After all, the UK homebrewing community is a bedrock of the beer industry – inspiring and launching careers of new brewers everywhere. We know all about that – and if you’d like to know what we do, you can download DIY Dog 2017 here.
