Schedule:

Elevation: 0.0 m


Notes
Mash with 1.3 qts/lb @152F for 40 minutes. Raise to 170F over the next 20 minutes. I use a HERMS system to raise my heat indirectly. If you don't have the ability to do this, just mash@152 for an hour and then infuse water to raise your temp to mashout temps.

I used fresh rhubarb. 12lbs chopped into 1" pieces and frozen. I thawed them out during my brew session and added them directly to my primary fermentation. I wanted to be left with a subtle rhubarb flavor, so adding them at primary was a good option for me.

For anyone in the Rockford area. This beer will actually be on tap at Pig Minds Brewing Co. in a few weeks. I will be brewing 30 gallons of it for an "assistant brewers series" being released in a few weeks. If you live in the area, or are just passing through, check it out.

This looks interesting. Are you concerned with contamination from the rhubarb?

beta - what's your opinion on this? You brew it, taste it?

I made a a base rye wit (w/o coriander or orange peel) and am planning to "dry hop" with 2lbs of rhubarb and 2lbs of strawberry puree.

It's still in secondary. But I used more like 10 lbs of rhubarb in primary for my 5 gal batch. Otherwise I stuck pretty close to the recipe. I thought about strawberry purée. Sounds good. Let us know how it turns out.
