ABOUT THE BEER

True to style using DE ingredients available in the 1500s. MALTS – Almost solely made of light Munich malt for no toasty or roasty flavors. No caramel malts as all color developed comes from a touch of chocolate and black malts. We chose to error in favor of high OG in case of efficiency issues. MASH – Beta rest to ensure fermentability, followed by alpha rest for body. BOIL – High boil time to develop melanoidins which have a similar effect to crystal malts. HOPS – Noble spalt hop. WATER: Ca: 90 ppm, Mg: 12, Na: 45, Cl: 82, So4: 65, HCO3: 223
