  • 1 tsp Irish Moss - Boil for 15 min. (omitted from calculations)

    Irish Moss

    A dried red-brown marine algae. Fining agent to remove large proteins. Negatively charged polymer attracts positively charged protein-tannin complexes (extracted from grain husks and hops) during the boil. This action is aided by the clumping of proteins in the boiling process. Irish moss settles to the bottom of the brew kettle with spent hops and hot break material at the end of the boil.

  • 28 g Oak Wood Chips - Add to the secondary. (omitted from calculations)

    Oak Wood Chips

    Adds a pungent woody flavor. Adding oak chips (which is done in the fermenter, not the mash tun) can add some interesting flavors to your homebrew as well as acting as a surface area to accelerate aging. To provide aged-in-oak flavor. Used in some IPA to simulate flavors from ocean passage to India.

  • Wyeast 3763 Roeselare Ale Blend

    Wyeast 3763 Roeselare Ale Blend

    Our blend of lambic cultures produce beer with a complex, earthy profile and a distinctive pie cherry sourness. Aging up to 18 months is required for a full flavor profile and acidity to develop. Specific proportions of a Belgian style ale strain, a sherry strain, two Brettanomyces strains, a Lactobacillus culture, and a Pediococcus culture produce the desirable flavor components of these beers as they are brewed in West Flanders. Propagation of this culture is not recommended and will result in a change of the proportions of the individual components. This blend will produce a very dry beer due to the super-attenuative nature of the mixed cultures.


Treat both mashing water and spatging water with 1 tab of campden tablet for each. Add 1 tsp of gypsum to the mashing water. 1 step Temperature mashing with mash out. Saccharification rest: 68C for 90 mins. Mash out: 75.6C for 10 mins. Fermentis US-05 is used for the primary fermentation. Roselare Blend is added to the secondary. Oak chips (or cubes) must be sanitized by simmering in hot water for 15 mins before adding to the primary fermenter. Allow at least 6 months to develop a full flavor in the secondary.
