Cosmic Crush Cherry
CHERRY SOUR ALE
Cherries, Brettanomyces, tartness and tannins all jostle for attention in this incredibly balanced sour ale. Upfront notes of rich, juicy and boozy cherries are underpinned by notes of Kirsch and Brett funk with the influence of wood from foeder aging in hand-picked Italian barrels that used to house Sangiovese red wine from the Emelia Romagna region balancing the acidity and juicy cherry character.
The Brew Sheet
Alcohol by Volume (a measure of booziness created by the yeast)
International Bitterness Unit (the bitterness of a beer from the hops)
Original Gravity (abbreviated OG) is a measure of the fermentable and unfermentable substances in a beer wort before fermentation. Those substances are often the sugars that will be converted to alcohol during the fermentation process.
Beer styles are the categorisation of beer into easily distinguishable types. When doing this we look at history, colour, carbonation, bitterness, ingredients, mouthfeel… the list goes on
Oats, Pilsner, Wheat, Spelt
We'd typically use a lightly kilned Base Malt in a beer recipe, then add Speciality malts (sometimes darker, more complex, different flavours) in small quantities to change the overall taste and colour of the beer.
Hallertau Blanc, Hallertauer Mittelfrüh, Magnum
Hops are used in loads of ways, and they can give different characteristics to beer such as Aroma and Bitterness– this is why they rock!
