Spice, Herb, or Vegetable Beer • All Grain • 19.50 L


A brewing session in memory of a lady by whom I was helped so much mentally but whom I hurt so deeply by my desperate decision and brutal action to terminate our friendship forever on the issue of sustaining my home brewing practices in this country, to which she was not even related at all. I am overwhelmed by tremendous remorse and filled with an enormous respect for her. She was a genuine natural-born heroine. Her soul was so beautiful that she was shining brightly in every second with her charm of caring and positiveness. I am greatly honored for that she accepted me to be in a tiny part of her life. Many many many thanks to her. The last time that we were together, with her foreign friend, was in the middle of a brewing session at my home. It was 10 years ago.

    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.
