BB's Ginger Beer
« on: January 16, 2018, 12:56:37 PM »
My first try, and I went with the following:

Batch volume: 13 liters

400g ginger
zest and juice from 4 lemons
30g spruce tips
30g Premiant hops @ 5min
2kg white sugar
300g honey
15g Fermentis W 34/70

OG: 1.050

Everything was boiled for 15 minutes, except for the hops and yeast nutrient which went in for the last 5 minutes, and the yeast which was pitched at 17 C.
Quote of BB:    I think I've passed that point where I'm no longer under the influence of alcohol. The alcohol is actually under my influence..

FV 1: USB Porter OG: 1.090
FV 2: Network Porter OG: 1.040

Tap 1: Solid IPA 7% ABV
Tap 2: BB's Ginger Brew 6,5
Keg 3 & 4: Clean Slate Saison 17

Well, it fermented all the way down to an FG of 1.000, so it is super dry. I will back sweeten it to the equivalent of SG 1.005,

It ends up with an ABV of 6,5%, more than a percent higher than I aimed for. Will bring it to the local beer club for a feedback tomorrow night.

FV2 = Empty
FV3 = (60L) Empty

Keg1 = 2Heads Pale
Keg2 = 2Heads IPA
Keg3 = 2Heads Amber
Keg4 = 2Heads Bitter

Well, they found it quite palatable actually. And very well balanced. A couple thought it was mead at first, some a cider, but most of them was able to get the ginger. Normally you'd get an immensely overpowering ginger off of a ginger beer right off the bat, but this seems much more balanced.

To me, I get the ginger first, but way more subtle than in the commercial ones. I get the citrus notes quite well, the honey too, and then the spruce tips are back there, the hops have blended quite well in and are the hardest to get, but they are there in the finish and on the nose a tiny bit. I guess if I cut back on the water and the sugar, it should get less watery and less boozy and will be quite nice. Maybe a tad more ginger, but not too much.
