Decembeer 2019 Exchange - Dec 21st - Pretty in Pink Gose

Post by darciandjenn » Mon Nov 25, 2019 6:13 pm

Grain:
Pilsner Malt - 5lbs
Wheat Malt - 5lbs

Hops:
Columbus (18.6%AA) - 16g - 5 mins

Other:
Sea Salt - 20g - 5 mins

Soured by pitching 1/2 lb each of unmilled sour and pilsner malt into wort and held @ ~ 45C for 24 hours and then boiled for 5 minutes.

Pitched a slurry of Voss Kveik that was harvested from another batch. After fermentation, added 1.5 lbs rhubarb, 1 lb raspberries and .5 lb strawberries.

Ultimately I think it came out OK but not quite as tart as I had hoped. The version we brewed over the summer had more oomph and we could barely keep it on tap. Anyway, hope you enjoy a taste of summer on the last day of fall! ;)

Please keep this one at room temperature until a few days before you intend to drink it.

My wife and I enjoyed this last night. It was really tasty after a long day. I thought it was a nice balance of sweet and tart. Thanks!

This is a lovely and well-made beer. I find the tartness level is just perfect for me, but would maybe have liked a touch more salt. The rhubarb and the berries work beautifully. And it doesn’t have the wheat-y aftertaste I often find difficult with goses. I may have to make some of this in the summer, as I suspect I would drink a pile of it. Thanks much for sharing this one!!

Really tasty. The fruit blended in well with the salt.

Delicious beer, nice colour and bright white head. The berries shine through nicely, has a nice raspberry character to it. The tartness is right where I like it in a gose, not too much.

Thanks for sharing, it's pairing very well with the world junior game! Image

This was my last beer of the night for our new year's celebration, while we finished off a round of Cards Against Humanity - and a lovely nightcap it was!

Really well balanced, and a very pleasing level of tartness, and saltiness level too... very pretty colour as well. Thanks for the share!
