Well the Vanilla Cream Ale was such a success that we’ve had requests for more. Sooo…we’re making another 5-gallon batch. Looks good so far.
Pictures and text forthcoming – we promise!!
Pictures and text to come.
It was time for something new…something light…something both refreshing and relaxing…and something for summer. It was time for a vanilla cream ale.
JT boiled up the water. Soon we added grain. Then we kept a mighty boil for an hour as the worty-goodness and hoppy smell filled the air. The color was perfect.
Here’s the final wort before we pitched the yeast.
We brewed a 3-gallon batch of a wheat beer with a hint of maple. Yessir, we done did.
I wanted to create a refreshing wheat beer, but with a hint of something other than citrus, which is what all the craft wheat beers seem to have. A friend suggested maple and soon an experimental recipe was created.
Had to start off with a picture of the brewing setup…
Here’s a picture of Eric, while we were waiting for the wort to boil…
Then we added the chiller to the boil (to sterilize it)…and then to chill the wort to the yeast pitching temperature range.
