Taste Notes

At one week after bottling, strong carbonation and generous head already. Cloudy appearance and nice copper color. Taste is tart and fruity with spicy and bitter backbone. Clean finish and very refreshing. Fig or bitter orange notes are faint at most.


To darken the wort while using only Dingemann's pilsner malt (like DuPont does) -- rather than add another darker malt -- take the first runnings and boil for 2 hours, then add it to the regular boil. Use top-off to compensate for additional boil-off loss from the first runnings. For 08/09/2013 batch, split the wort at secondary, and added 1 oz bitter orange peel to one, and ~3 cups/1.5 pounds of canned figs to the other. The latter attenuated down to 1.006. the former to 1.009. Both were lovely when fresh, but not pronounced flavors. Primary fermentation in room with door left open for warmer temperature. Secondary fermentation moved out into summer heat; down/fleece vests used overnights to minimize heat loss.
