Brew day 6/17/2017 Koren's first solo brew. OG 1.054 7/1/2017 SG 1.010 Kegged 7/10 Put 1 oz fresh lavender blossoms in a tincture of vanilla vodka. 7/14 Lavender vanilla vodka infusion turn marvelously lavender in color even after just a few hours. Just poured myself a taste of the beer. Spot on! Thankfully not too hoppy or overpoweringly flavorful. Strong Belgian ester. Dropped a trickle of the lavender vanilla vodka into my taster. OMG! Lavender aroma is magnificent vanilla flavor comes through with subtle lavender. The Belgian rounds it out. 7/16 Added a good dash. Maybe 0.5 oz. After about a day, reasonable vanilla. Minute lavender. Don't want to add more vanilla so will make a lavender infusion with plain vodka. 7/17 0.21 oz lavender added to about 10oz plain vodka. Dried out considerably so not really sure how much lavender compared to fresh.
