My eyes are applying some serious stink eye to my first batch with Verdant yeast while my mouth is rejoicing. It’s tasty stuff, but boy golly is that some turbid beer! I hit it with biofine to no effect, then I hit it with a vengeful dose of gelatin. Verdant wasn’t phased in the least. I really want to like Verdant, but that’s one seriously ugly beer!

HB 12% Bourbon Barrel aged Imperial Red. I know about the glass but my tolerance can handle a glass this big. Lol. 😴Dang these pictures suck. Oh well it is crystal clear but can't seem to get a good shot.
Anyone that has tried to take a picture of really clear beer can see what you've got there. It's a beauty! It has that firey orange/red thing going on that is so pleasing to hold up to the light. Nice work!

I also hear you about the tolerance thing. The older I get, the less frequently I trek past 1.070. Being an official adult sucks sometimes.

"I hit it with biofine to no effect, then I hit it with a vengeful dose of gelatin."
Looks like a clinger. Won't even budge even thought it is sideways! I thinks you used tooooo much gelatin! 😂
Just kidding the 12%er is starting to kick in. LOL.

You know, I've been wondering the same. That dose of gelatin might've been a bit too spiteful--or it's a clinger. I'll know in a couple of weeks when I keg the second generation that is currently working on a brown ale.

First of 3 different Farmhouse/wild ales I brewed earlier this summer.


Cultures: I propagated and blended from the dregs of two local breweries from two spontaneously fermentated beers 1) Indian Latter Farms - koelship which is coolshiped down wind from their orchard. 2) Plan Bee brewing - Farm Beer dregs which consists of a blend of cultures from their bee hives. The beer was then aged for about a month on Sour Dark Cherries from Fox Brothers Farm in Hudson, ny.

Named in honor of our cat Binx who is wild (sorry @fourfarthing for kinda stealing your naming thing but it worked so well lol)
