Welcome to the homeBBBrew board!
Like the BBB, the homeBBBrew board is not a club, just a place to talk about making beer. Is there a swap you would like to see happen? If we can find a few others who have something similar then lets do it!

NO SPECIFIC REASON FOR THIS LINK...
I just really like the work levifunk is doing!

What do you call harvest ale?
I ask cause I made mine on labor day, but its premise is very different than it was a few years ago. I have made multigrain beers, including 5 grain types in the mash, and called that harvest ale. Then I added roasted pumpkin, seemed an autumnal thing to do. But now my harvest ale is so named because I use freshly harvested hops in it. What do you do?

If there's an ingredient used which was freshly harvested, then it's a harvest ale! I think you can safely call any beer brewed for automn with something fresh in it a "Harvest ale".....why not?

Re: What do you call harvest ale?
What of a beer brewed at another time of year, like summer, that has something freshly harvested in it?

But that's not really what I was looking for here, my intention was to ask from a homebrew perspective. I'm not so much trying to define what folks feel a "harvest ale" can be, that's a question I'd ask on the other board. The question is for people who make something they like calling a "harvest ale". If you do, what is it that makes the beer what it is? For me, now, its a hop harvest thing I've done the last 3 Septembers.
