Mad Fritz Beer
The Peacock and Jupiter –
This White Ale or a Belgian Wit-bier was created from an earlier rendition that we had worked on with our even smaller pilot system. We called it Whit's Wit after my wife, Whitney, for obvious reasons! We brew the base with Scarlet variety barley from Alamosa CO and 33% White Wheat, then with a light bittering hand of hops and aroma infuse Cardamom, Coriander, Lemon Grass and Mandarin rinds at the end of the kettle. We used an new selection of yeast for primary in stainless then racked to neutral white wine barrels for one month of aging. We usually see another pick up in fermentation from a house yeast, then rack to bottling and natural fermentation in the bottle/keg for carbonation. This beer is a foamy delight in the summer or winter its 5.6 to 6.5% Alc. by Vol is hidden by explosive spice characters that almost seem like a citrus soda in the palate, clean and crisp.
