  • 1.5 lbs Rye Malt

    Rye Malt

    Often used in German Ales and specialty beers

  • .5 lbs 2-Row Caramel Malt 10L; Briess

    2-Row Caramel Malt 10L; Briess

    Golden color and a candy like sweetness. Characteristics & Applications: • In contrast to Brewers Malt, glassiness is a distinguishing characteristic of Caramel Malt. The glassy endosperm creates the desirable non-fermentable components giving true Caramel Malt the ability to contribute body (mouthfeel), foam foam retention, and extended beer stability, while contributing color and unique caramel flavor. • Caramel 10L is a roasted caramel malt that imparts golden color. • Use 3-7% for Pilsener-style beers for balance. • Use 5-15% to provide color, sweetness and color to light amber beers. • Produced from AMBA/BMBRI recommended 2-Row Malting Barley varieties.

  • 3 lbs Liquid Light Extract

    Liquid Light Extract

    A brewer can create any beer style with this extract when used as a base in conjunction with colored malts and selected hops. Contains no colored malts or hops.

    For making very pale ales and lagers.

  • 1 lbs Candi Sugar Clear

  • 1 lbs White Table Sugar (Sucrose)

    Perceived to be similar to a Saaz and Mt. Hood combination. Finding favor as a Saaz replacement.

In the primary. Initial taste has a lot of depth. Added rosemary and coriander into the cherry sauce (1lb of dried cherries cooked down and blended). The rosemary definitely shows through in the taste. Used an Irish Blend Tea (Irish breakfast tea with bergemont) the tea adds a nice bitter citrus flavor, that compliments the cherry sauce. Too early to determine the dryness or hop profile, but I am expecting good things. this recipe is push the bounds of what I have experimented with for additives.
