Boiled a bunch of that with all of the brewing liquor, mashed with said liquor and lined the top of the boil kettle with branches for the wort to "strain" through. Then crushed juniper berries and ground grains of paradise were added with 5 minutes left to the boil.

First time ever doing it. Had no idea how much juniper to use.... I went with the standard metric of "a backpack full."


Post that pic, Boleslaus
Sounds pretty authentic, especially the bit about using the branches as filter bed. How does it taste, I'm thinking of using two smaller 3.5 gal fermenters to experiment with historic/spiced beers.

I realize it is a terrible picture, but maybe it will make it that much harder to guess. I was drunk and too excited about shooting off fireworks. So the hint is it should be clear, which it is, this was the first pour.

Oh my god it was fantastic!!! It satisfied beer geeks, girls who drink girly girl drinks, BMC drinkers, etc. Came out at a quaffable and refreshing 4.2% ABV. When first kegged and carbed the aroma was strooooong and had me worried that I used too much. But the flavor is smooth, slightly subdued and if I were to sum up the flavor it added in one word I would go with "bittersweet"... that's really the first thing that comes to mind. As it sat longer it mellowed and married even better... I wonder if bark tannins from juniper evolve into something tasty like how oak evolves into vanillin.

I just brewed an Alt recently and it looked kinda similar so I figured why not?

And I'll go with 7A. Northern German Altbier.

Haha, if I'm wrong, pick 7C!
