Disparate Elements #2
Alc Vol. 6.4%
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
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
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.
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!
