Interesting, I am curious why something different would be posted on his site. I was looking a little further into it and found this link on a write up from May, 2008:

http://brookstonbeerbulletin.com/consecration-of-the-new-russian-river-brewery/

Maybe they switched, or trade off which currants they use depending on the batch. We were able to interview him in April, and the information we received when speaking with him was black currants. I suppose it would be a fun experiment to split the batch in two and try the difference between the two currants though!

Thanks again for the information passedpawn, cheers!

PS - Checkout the interview with Vinnie below:

Perfect! I was looking for something other than another saison to ferment this summer. Please pass along our thanks to Vinnie for sharing this with the HB community!

The hard part is finding dried black currants - there's 1 website that carries them but they are a bit pricey to buy (FYI - Zante currants that you find in the supermarket are not black currants, they are raisins).

I started a Consecration clone a few weeks ago starting with a slightly scaled down version of Jamil's Dark Strong ale, fermented with ECY Trappist ale yeast and added RR dregs along with some Roselare bug cake from a Flanders red brew and some wine soaked oak cubes. So far so good, but it'll take a while for the Brett and bugs to chew through everything.
OK, i just found out from passedpawn that he emailed Vinnie about the currants and that Vinnie responded that they use Zante currants, and not the real black currants. Since the website says black currants and his interviews say black currants, passedpawn emailed Vinnie one more time to completely clarify what he uses. They are very different fruits, so if I hear back from passedpawn I'll update it here.

EDIT: Those interested in buying a kit might want to suscribe to this thread:

I'll definitely post when the kits are available again. I'm guessing early next week at this point, but again, will keep everyone posted.

Cheers!

Wow, that kit sold out pretty fast. Oh well, saved me a lot of money. One of these days I'll probably try a clone, I'll just do without actual Consecration barrel chunks.

I sent the link to Vinnie and pointed out the "black currants" and he says "I’ll have to have our web person change this."
