Works of Love: Cigar City Coolship 2015
Farmstead® Ale with 48-Hour Open Air Coolship Rest and Inoculation with Lager Yeast Aged in Oak Barrels
In November of 2015, our friends Wayne, Joey, Justin and Geiger from Cigar City Brewing visited us, and joined us in a collaborative brew day. A wort consisting of American malted barley, wheat, oats, and hops was rested for 48 hours in the open late fall air in our coolship, and then inoculated with lager yeast. After fermentation, the beer was transferred to French oak barrels for nearly 14 months.
