Disparate Elements #4

Peach and Habanero Scottish Sour Ale
Select Sangiovese wine barrels were blended for a unique brett forward spiciness and stone fruit acidity. To heighten and enlighten these elements we fermented on sweet whole peaches and then infused with habanero peppers. Juicy Fruit, Funky Brett and ctirussy heat from the habaneros.
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)
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, Rye, Wheat
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 are used in loads of ways, and they can give different characteristics to beer such as Aroma and Bitterness– this is why they rock!
