Raspberry Blonde Ale – Kveik Arset Yeast – Anvil Foundry – Part 2 of 2


Raspberry Blonde Ale – Kveik Arset Yeast – Anvil Foundry – Part 2 of 2

I always do grain to glass but sadly this one went grain to drain. 🙁

This was about several things:
Testing the Cascade Raspberry Candi Syrup addition
Testing the new Anvil small batch adapter for increased Brew House Efficiencies
Testing PH management between 5.6 to 5.2 for increased Brew House Efficiencies

WOW!!! 85% BHE from this brew
Which means we will need to run some additional tests to see what gives us the best bang for the buck on BHE down the road.

I will update the recipe and details late tomorrow (08-17-20)
DR PH Meter – DR-100 (Amazing PH Meter)

Equipment I used to brew this batch of beer:
Anvil Foundry 10.5 Gallon All-in-One brewing system with recirculation pump kit
Jaded Brewing Scylla
Anvil Small Batch Adapter
Awesome propane burner – Great quality.
Five Star Super Moss HB

Gelatin – cheap bulk for clarifying
Hop filter for brewing
Glass Carboy
Plastic Carboy for measuring
Tilt Hydrometer during fermentation
Best Hydrometer I’ve ever used and a great company

Belgian Witbier – Jovaru Lithuanian Farmhouse yeast – Candi Wit – Grain to Glass – Part 2 of 2


Belgian Witbier – Jovaru Lithuanian Farmhouse yeast – Candi Wit – Grain to Glass – Part 2 of 2

Belgian Witbier brewed with Cascade Belgin Wit Candi Syrup and Jovaru Lithuanian Farmhouse yeast.

I had a lot of fun making this as it really is a bit of a hybrid but when thinking of a Witbier the Lithuanian farmhouse yeast called Jovaru with its lemon pith and black pepper just sounded perfect for a Witbier. Plus I went for Pacific Jade hops which offer aromas of citrus (more lemon) and black pepper and then you throw in the Cascade Belgian wit candi beer syrup with the orange peel and coriander it simply sounded perfect.

Anvil Foundry 10.5 Gallon All-in-One brewing system with recirculation pump kit
Jaded Brewing Scylla
Superior Pump 91250 Utility Pump – 1/4 HP

Candi Wit Recipe – 5.25 Gallons:
3.5 lbs Golden Promise
2.5 lbs Wheat Malt, Pale
1/2 lb flaked wheat
1/2 lb acid malt
5 minute additions:
Added 1 heaping tsp of Wyeast Yeast Nutrient
Added 4 oz cooled wort with 1/4 tsp of Super Moss HB
1 lb Cascade Candi Belgin Wit
1 oz Pacific Jade Hops Alpha 14.3%

Once it was chilled to about 85F I pitched Jovaru Lithuanian farmhouse yeast provided from Too Far North Brewing Company off of eBay.

Flying Dog – Raging Bitch Clone on Rye – Belgian IPA Imperial – Grain to Glass – Part 2 of 2


This is a tribute to Fly Dog’s Raging Bitch beer. Essentially I found as many clone versions of it as possible to come up with my version of it. I intentionally substituted the first bittering hop addition of Warrior for Columbus as I was out of Warrior. I also added 1 lb of Rye to play on the spiciness of the already spicy brew.
