Ah. It's lightening up now. When I put it in primary it looked SUPER dark, like porter territory.

Revived this and brewed it today:

5 gallon batch

7 lbs Liquid Wheat Extract
1 lb Amber DME
8 oz flaked wheat
1.5 lbs Pale Pils malt
1.5 lbs Red Wheat

Chop 1 lb rhubarb, place in glass bowl, barely cover with water, microwave for 5-8 min until steaming (> 170 degrees), cover, let cool. This will kill any buggers in the fruit.

Steep/mash grains @ 154 for 45-60 min in three gallons of water
Remove, add the LME and DME, bring to a boil

1 oz Hallertau @ 60
1 oz Hallertau @ 15
1 tsp Irish Moss @ 15

Cool to 70 degrees, top off to 5 gallons, aerate, add yeast and cooled rhubarb. I used two packages of Wyeast 3333 German Wheat instead of making a starter.

OG = 1.074

IBU = 12, the rhubarb will add nice tart/bitterness to bring this up

Primary for two weeks @ 65-70 degrees, then will transfer off the fruit to secondary for another couple of weeks until finished. I am using a five gallon paint strainer bag lining the fermenting bucket for an easy way to remove the spent rhubarb. It is also a good idea to give it a gentle shake every day to keep the fruit moist, as it will float to the top and dry out.

Yonkers! Just transferred off the fruit, gravity reading 1.014, really good for mostly extract, a solid 8% big brew. The sample taste tells me this is another great one!

Bottled today, have a keg system but wanted the ability to easily transport. FG 1.010 @ 40 degrees (cold crashed for 5 days prior to bottling). Calculated 8.7% ABV, used 6oz dark brown sugar to prime. Sample tasted most excellent, banana with a hint of clove on the nose, rhubarb earthy on first taste with a nice tart finish. I think this batch will be superb!

Had to crack one last night, only three days so very little carbonation, but the rich red color from the rhubarb is awesome and the taste a very nice banana/clove up front finishing with a tart rhubarb on the backside.

That looks great. I just did a small batch Belgian with strawberry and rhubarb. It is in secondary now on the fruit. It's about a 7% and the color was that of a Belgian until the fruit was added and now it is a nice red color.

A little lime might add to the overall flavor.


Cheers,

The rhubarb in our garden is going gonzo this year. I really wanted to make a beer along the lines of Ovalde's Auroch's Horn on Rhubarb. This seems like exactly what I want. 5 gallons of this years belgian tripel might get the rhubarb treatment as well....
