Scrumpy took his batch from Goatfest and kegged a few days back. He tapped that puppy last night and designated it as Workhorse Wheat. Not a bad Thursday.
Nice to see Northwest Louisiana getting some craft beer love. This isn't far from 3 of our hometowns so it'll be nice to have a beer destination when we visit back home. Can't wait to try it out.
The recipe has been set for this weekend's brew. The alcohol level came out a bit on the high side but the grain has been bought and mixed so there's no going back now. The original recipe is for a dunkelweizen but I much prefer the clean finish on American wheat beers so the yeast was swapped out. The moral of the story is I'm calling it a dark wheat for now. If the alcohol comes out as predicted it'll be a big dark wheat.
Word came out a few days ago that Dogfish Head and the Grateful Dead are colloborating on a new beer called American Beauty.
Sounds awesome. Too bad Dogfish doesn't distribute to any state bordering the one 4/5 of us live.
