Fellow Chaos Members.

The master of wood has anounced the next barrel project or projects to commence shortly.

Most of you have already asked to be invited into this next barrel project alreay so the list has technically already been formulated.  However please confirm your acceptance in here.

This barrel project will be esentially 2 in 1.  We will be brewing a RIS and aquiring a new Rye barrel from High West Distillery when we are ready.  The Recipe is still TBD shortly.  After a month before the beer comes out we will add 50/50 blackberry's and raspberry's.  (Anyone have any cool names to change to?)

Similatiously, while this beer is going on we will be making a large desert Melomel to go in once the beer is complete.  The timeline will be such that on the day that we fill the barrel I want to close down the brew house and have a Meat and Mead day where we fill the barrel, make the mead, and have a small social BBQ after while drinking a few choice bottles of mead.

Also for the fruit I was thinking of trying the high quality Oregon Puree's Ive heard good things about them and the price is right.  Any Other suggestions?

Call me stupid, but I cannot find a grain in Beer Smith for Belgian Debittered.  I have tried looking under Belgian and just debittered and come up with nothing. 

Is it just a black patent malt?

After checking with Brock and making sure there is room, I'm brewing mine tomorrow!  2 clarifications, 75 minute boil and no need rehydrating the yeast, right?

I would also like to suggest "race to the finish rye" as the name, or something that acknowledges the mad dash we brewed this in, as the  spirit of quick unity will inevitably be represented in the beer!

Josh, what fruit will be used

Josh, what fruit will be used for the melomel and when will it be added to the barrel?

Alchemist, member since
Jeff,

Jeff,

this is the preliminary recipe thatll be used for the melomell.  Like mentioned earlier in the post I wanna use the puree's listed for all the fruit both for the beer and the melomel.  Its going to get pretty pricy so I wanna keep it down as much as possible for everyone without sacrificing quality.

For the mellomel the fruit would all be done and out before it goes in the barrel.  For the beer we would freeze off a portion of the blackberry and raspberry purees to go in a month before we take it out.

The recipe is for totals for each persons batch, obviously there is more to it then listed the main difference in mead making is in the fermentation schedule.  This will be worked out later.

 

DO NOT USE THIS RECIPE ON YOUR OWN INGREDIANTS WILL BE BOUGHT IN BULK FOR REFERENCE ONLY

  • 21 lbs (9.5 kg) | Wildflower Honey
  • 12 lbs (5.4 kg) | Berry Mix (Blackberries/Raspberries/Blueberries)
  • 6 lbs (2.7 kg) | Strawberries
  • 6 lbs (2.7 kg) | Black Currant
  • 2.3 gal (8.7 L) | Water
  • 3 tsp (1.5 oz) | Yeast Energizer/Nutrient Blend (Fermaid-K and DAP)
  • 10 g (0.35 oz) | Lalvin Narbonne Yeast (71B-1122
  • Original Gravity: 1.151
  • Final Gravity: 1.030 - 1.040
  • ABV: 15.8% (Estimated)

So I found out that Aug. 1st

So I found out that Aug. 1st is national Mead Day.  What a better day then to also have our mead mixing day.

This should also coincide of everyone involved filling the barrel.  We should be able to have all of our mead ingredients by that day as well.

Please let me know if you cannot attend that day it is a saturday.  We will start early and fill the barrel with the beer then as a group we will all mix our meads and start the fermentation.  It will not be an option to not be a part of the group its all for 1.

Most likly I will be ordering

Most likly I will be ordering from here.  For this we will need (4) 5gallon pails of honey. 

 

If anyone seperatly from this buy wants honey let me know how much.  Id like to group into whole 60lb pails in order in that qty if possible.  So if you need to ask around and group up to buy in multiples of 60 lbs.

Nancy,

Nancy,

Are you OK with the rest of the group proceeding without you and mixing for you on that day if we proceed?

For the first 10 days after mixing we need to divy up the responsibility of stiring in yeast nutient to all batchs.  You can take multiple days of this to make up?

There's a national mead day?!

There's a national mead day?!?!  That's lollapalooza weekend and I have a 3 day pass. Ahh!  I'll have been there Friday but I can wake up early and help in the morning. They don't have the time everyone is going on yet, so not sure if there's anyone I want to see early. What time were you thinking of starting?  Would it be cool if I ducked out early that day?

Yes fine if you leave early well see closer.  Im sure everyone willlend a hand throughout fermentation.

Rich,

Would you expect anything else but rediculous haha.  However i did speak to soon thats why i wanted to wait to post.  There is a deferent recipe that we will go with out of the shramm book that is more reasonable.
