I made a rhubarb beer that I really liked. When I brought it to a club meeting some said it was the "best fruit beer they ever tasted" and others didn't like the rhubarb flavor at all. I used a flanders red base recipe and added 6 lbs of chopped up and frozen rhubarb pieces at the end of the boil to blanch them. I split the batch and did half with US-05 yeast. This is what I brought to the club meeting. Nice and tart. In fact I would make the base beer a little more malty next time to balance better. The other half of the batch I used Roselare blend yeast to make a really sour beer. Haven't tasted it yet but it is about time to do so. I will get back to you about how that turned out.

I love they way it interacts with all the different roasted malts. I know everyone's tastes are different, so I don't pretend to be the final word. I feel a little goes a long way. I use 1/3-1/2 cup per 4-gallon batch. As the old saying goes. You can always add more, but you can't take it out. My Brewing Blog - http://youmakewhat.blogspot.com Return to table of contents
Date: Tue, 28 Aug 2012 22:14:22 +0000 From: robin.griller at gmail.com Subject: Molasses I once brewed a David Miller recipe for Old Ale that called for over a lb of molasses. It was quite overpowering though most of it got drunk nonetheless. I put a six pack away and forgot about it until I stumbled on the bottles ~ three years later. After all that mellowing, it had turned into a delightful beer! Robin Sent on the TELUS Mobility network with BlackBerry Return to table of contents
