Round 2
 
1 Attachment(s)

SO I have a buddy getting married in July and we decided on this to be one of the brews on tap at the wedding.

Recently we split a four pack of Duvel. Pouring each bottle in a glass and then leaving a little in the bottom in order to provide yeast for a flask of boiled then cooled malt extract. After letting it go for a week. I then poured the thin layer yeast into another flask of wort. At this point it is going strong. Should be brewing this no later than next week with pics to come. Stoked to make this one again. i dont think i have since it is such a PIA.

Stay tuned...

Notes
[02/20/2013] - Scaled pears down to 15# instead of 22#. The original five gallon recipe called for 11#, yet this pears flavor was a little strong and it took a long time for the pear flavor to mellow out.

It was a good brew day. the weather here in Georgia was very nice and the process went smooth. I did have a little trouble with the fly sparge sprinkler but I think it is just time to give her a little tlc.

Below are pics of the day...finished up at The Fred which is sort of like a speakeasy for quality beer.

After fermenting for roughly four weeks, we transferred the beer on top of ten pounds of Asian Pears (this recipe is 10gl versus the first batch at 5gl).I decided to go with less pears for two reasons: 1) the last batch had a really strong pear flavor and took a few months to finally start to mellow out 2) they are REALLY expensive. What you see below is $40.00 dollars worth of pears.

The pears were given a bath in sanitizer and then peeled, sliced and pureed. All the tools used to complete this process was also sanitized.

I plan to let them sit for a few weeks and then keg.
