Is this intended as a kellerweiss clone or did you just use the yeast harvested?

jester5120 04-17-2012 11:48 AM

No its not a kellerweis clone. I just really liked their yeast

Is this names after a certain nerdy tattooed red head?

jester5120 05-21-2012 02:23 AM

How did this brew turn out?

jester5120 05-22-2012 11:16 AM

I really like it. I'm gonna keep it as sort of a summer seasonal. It gets a lot of nice fruit flavors from ingredients and not from fruit itself. That's what i like about it. One thing i would change though is I'd shoot for about 4.5%-5% abv.

This may sound like a dumb question; but, do you just dump a pound of honey into the fermenter? Or do you boil the honey down, cool it, and dump it in the fermenter?

jester5120 02-26-2013 07:48 PM

it goes straight in the fermenter. boiling it will destroy the aroma. you can heat it up a little fisrt though so it pours easier
