Default Spruce Tips!

Ever wanted to try using spruce tips in your recipe? Visit my cousin's website for info, recipies, and to buy fresh spruce tips!

Goose Island brewery in Chicago recently brewed a batch with some fresh tips from spruceontap.com

A couple years ago I bought a keg of Alaska Winter Ale with spruce tips, really nice! Thanks for sharing, I might just have to try doing a spruce tip ale.

I had a spruce beer @ Urban Chestnut this spring. It blew my mind. It was like my mouth was walking through an evergreen forrest.

It appears from the video that this was brewed in the spring, the tips were vacuum packed though.

I brewed up my spruce beer recipe a few weeks ago. I pulled a sample from the fermenter and man is it GOOD! Really looking forward to this one being carbed and ready to drink. My simple recipe:

11lbs Pale
1/2lb C40

1 oz Columbus 60 min
.8oz Columbus 30 min

8oz spruce tips 15 min
8oz spruce tips flame out steep 10 min

This is about double the amount of spruce reccomended on the website, but I like things bold!

I think it would be fun to try a Black Spruce IPA... thats my next recipe!
