American Eisbeer Homebrew for trade.
As an experiment my last brew day, I siphoned off 1 gallon of an American style pale mild I made for ice distillation. after 7 hours in my freezer at five degrees, I ended up with 6 12 Oz bottles of yield. I would like to keep at least 2 bottles in case it turns out well, and I'd like to enter it in a HBC, 2 bottles for me and my friend who I promised I would have over for a tasting, which leaves 2 bottles to barter with.
recipe is as follows:
OG 1.041 FG 1.010
7 pounds pale US 2 row
1/2 pound Caramel 20
1/2 pound Caramel 60
1 pound White wheat
0.5 Oz amarillo 60
0.5 Oz Citra/Amarillo blend 45
0.5 Oz Blend 20
0.5 Oz Blend 5
Wyeast American Ale, 1 liter starter
Ferment at 68 for one week.
Rack to one gallon jug with priming sugar, freeze in freezer for 7 hours at 5 Degrees. Decant from slush and bottle.
The fermenter was packed with tropical scents of mango and papaya, and the freeze should concentrate that.
It could be awesome or not, but part of the fun is doing something new right? Give me a PM if you are interested in trying this, and one condition is I would love to get tasting notes from you afterwards! Anyways, Cheers!
