Was the bottle fresh? I ask because I have had this beer on tap at the DFH brew pub in Delaware in May and it was fantastic. I bought two cases over the course of the summer and they were excellent.

Was bottled in July....you would think that would be fresh enough....I've had hbs age way longer than that and still be great but maybe a lighter pasteurized beer is different than hb

My wife even tried it and said it tasted like water with a hint I strawberry and bad aftertaste

ok this is my first time trying this beer by dogfish head .. i am not a fan of fruit beers at all and this tweason ale is a slam dunk..im searching for the clone recipe and came up with this as of now.. any ideas?.... Tweason’ale is a beer we brewed on
the cusp of summer. It is a gluten-free sorghum based beer brewed with fresh
strawberries from our friends at Fifer
Orchards near Dover, Delaware. For
the sorghum, we sourced a dark,
sweet, syrup with notes of molasses
and pit-fruit. We also used a a dark
buckwheat honey with a beautiful
hay-like, earthy-malty thing that we
felt added the final touch to this
Tweason’ale recipe http://www.hunterdonbrewing.com/.../...weason-ale.pdf

tommyguner03, that link to the recipe is broken. Do you have another source for it?

How do I know when this is done primary? How long did you leave it in secondary on the strawberries? What did you use for bottle carbonating / priming? Thank you for any clarification. I'm new and really want to try this brew.

1.) I just waited a week and then moved it. There really isn't a "done" when it comes to primary.

2.) I left it for three weeks and the strawberries were completely white. I'll probably do three weeks again this time (I have another batch going right now).

3.) I keg

1 oz NZ Motueka 60 min
0.5 oz NZ Motueka 15 min
0.5 oz NZ Motueka 5 min
1 tsp DAP 15 min
1 tsp Irish Moss 15 min
1 tsp Gypsum 15 min
WLP 002 English Ale yeast

I racked 2.5 gallons onto 5lbs of frozen strawberries in secondary. I bottled 2.5 gallons with a strawberry extract flavoring. I want to compare the real fruit vs. extract flavoring.

I guessed on the hops. I was mainly looking for something that I hadn't brewed with yet. I used the agave syrup because, well, I thought it might offer some strawberry flavor contribution.

I tried the extract flavored beer last night. It was unexpectedly decent. I think a few more weeks of bottle conditioning and this will be a great beer.

I had the opportunity to drink the TweasonAle on tap at the DFH brewpub in May and it was really good. Much more strawberry coming through in both aroma and flavor than in the bottle version available in stores.

I will let you know how the other half of the batch using real fruit turns out.
Stefan, I'm working on a clone of this now as well. I'm going with 10lbs of fresh strawberries in secondary for a 5.25 gal batch. Do you think this is appropriate? Also were you happy with your hop bill above, or did you use the millenium or magnum that Igs recommended?

Brewed this for the wife (and mother-in-law) last year - both are gluten intolerant

9 gallon batch

7lbs Sorghum
5lbs Buckwheat Honey
0.50oz Magnum (14% AA) 60 mins
0.25oz Magnum (14% AA) 15 mins
Irish Moss 15 mins
0.25oz Magnum
8.00oz Malto-Dextrine 5 mins
2pkgs S-05 Safale American Yeast

10lbs Strawberries (frozen, good quality) to secondary for 10 days

My wife prefers this over DFH Tweason'Ale.


Mergs - I think 10lbs of strawberries in 5.5gal is going to be very overpowering.

You should consider posting that recipe in the GF recipe database section:
http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f240/

Could also post your Dos-Equis Clone recipe if you consider it a keeper!

I should technically call the Dos Equis clone "gluten reduced" - I made it with barley and brewer's clarex
