Batch #7: Double Negative
As you can see, we used so much grain to brew Double Negative that the mash tun nearly overflowed. This is one big, beautiful stout.
Batch #6: With Love From Grimm
Brewed on Valentine’s Day with rosebuds!
No big deal. Just our picture in The Wall Street Journal!
Grimm Ales Batch #5: GOLDEN HOUR
Style: SPELT SAISON
Strength: 6.3% ABV
Bitterness: 43 IBU’s
Color: 6 SRM
GOLDEN HOUR is the light at the end of the tunnel. Following in the authentic tradition of Belgian saisons, ours is dry and spritzy with a billowy white head of Belgian lace. For local terroir, we use spelt grown in Upstate NY and malted by our friend Andrea Stanley at Valley Malt. With its subtle nutty flavor, the spelt combines beautifully with the spiciness of our favorite farmhouse yeast and the refined, pungent aromas of German Tettnang and Hallertau hops. Golden Hour is a beer for those seeking respite from the winter doldrums.
This is Peter Martens. He and his father grew the delicious organic spelt that we used in Golden Hour on their farm in Penn Yan, NY.
