Club Gueuze/ Lambic Project

We’re planning a group brew for Brew Haven and we want to go funky and sour on this one.  We will coordinate a group gueuze brew.  We plan on having individuals brew a traditional lambic recipe (60% base barley malt, 40% unmalted wheat- using a turbid mash) and leaving the beer open to the air […]

Aspetuck Tour.
