Cosmic Crush Tropical
TROPICAL SOUR ALE
This sour is fermented with wild yeast strains brettanomyces and Cher Ami, our house mixed culture, and refermented with mango, pineapple, guava and papaya, followed by ageing in ex-Borolo foeders from Emilia Romagna in Northern Italy. Huge hits of tropical fruit aromas and a riot of exotic juicy tartness with the balance of acidity from the foeders wood influence. An underlying Brett funk and bone dry attenuation completes this triumphant tropical sour.
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.
Hallertauer 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!
