Decided to try a mini-batch of weird beer today in my old Mr Beer keg, approximately 2.4 gallons. Used the following ingredients:
- 1 lb 6-row
- 8 oz maris otter
- 4 oz caramel 20
- 4 oz caramel 60
- 4 oz flaked corn
- 0.9 oz honey malt
- 2 lbs Amber Dry Extract (Munton’s)
- 1 oz willamette mash hop
- 0.5 oz tettnanger 60 minutes
- 1.5 oz tettnanger 1 minute
- campden (to guard against chloramines in water)
- T-58 saison yeast
I honestly have no idea what the heck I’ve made here. It did taste, smell, and look like it’ll probably become beer after it’s done fermenting! But we’ll find out in about a month!
UPDATE: it’s ready, and it’s delicious!! Very saison-y but not at all dry (which is a little odd, but hey, it works). Next up for the mini-batches will be something along these lines, but with extra-dark Munton’s extract!
