TART FRUIT BEER WITH SOUR CHERRIES
FIRST BREWED: AUGUST 2016
Remember that Buzzkill beer? Yeah, that’s right, the one where we isolated wild yeast from the guts of wasps?
Well, one of the yeast strains we ended up with we really liked. (Mostly for the gentle acidity, also known as the Brassneck patented Twang®).
Compared to the much loved “Changeling” series, the Twang® dial has been turned down a little in the Dilettante, so as not to get in the way of those delicious Montmorency cherries.
It is also worth mentioning that this is not a kettle soured beer.
We did a mixed fermentation with a Saison yeast we like for some added je ne sais quoi.
Beer Nerd Alert: if you can tell us the yeast strain we’ll give you free beer for the rest of your life**
Beer Nerd Alert number two: Did we leave the pits in the cherries during fermentation? Answers on a postcard to:
