Overworks

Disparate Elements #2

Alc Vol. 6.4%
OVERWORKS
Long Island Ice Tea Inspired Scottish Sour Ale

The OverWorks cellar has a myriad of spirit barrels lying in wait. We took one of each of them for a Strong Island blend. Vodka, Gin, Rum, Tequila and whisky barrels were all blended together for a truly Long Island Iced Tea inspired beer. With a little zest of lemon as the perfect garnish.

The Brew Sheet

ABV
6.4

Alcohol by Volume (a measure of booziness created by the yeast)

IBU
25

International Bitterness Unit (the bitterness of a beer from the hops)

OG
1.054

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.

Style
Sour Ale

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

Malts
Pilsner, Wheat, Oats, Rye

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.

Hops
Magnum, Hallertauer Mittelfrüh

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!

INGREDIENTS

water, malted barley, wheat, oats, rye, lemon zest, hops, yeast.
