Volkanisch Vijf
« on: August 04, 2015, 04:25:15 AM »
I was at Volcanic in Hood River last week. By the way, I scoured a bottle of Crooked Stave Petite Passion Fruit, YUM! But, they had the Everybody's-Solera collaboration for Volcanic's (local bottle shop and tap room) five year anniversay. It was pretty darn good, like way good! and I plan to try to make one. Brain child of Jess Caudill no doubt, who is no longer at Wyeast since becoming the Head Brewer at Everybody's. Everybodys is the only brewery in my county.

Best way I can describe it is Antwerper Wiess. Berliner with an obviuos belgian profile. The news paper quotes the Solera brewer stating that they used no hops, soured with lacto, then pitched sac yeast. Obviouslly a belgian sac, and im guessing Wyeast belgian saison. 3.5% and way tastey. They also said it was 80/20 pils and wheat, so they didn't leave too much to the guess work recipe-wise.

Had to look it up, White Salmon WA, across Fromm Hood River OR.

The old Wyeast crew from NHCs past seem to have moved on. Owen has the canning business. I have been told that Greg Doss is now at a brewery, not sure which one.

I tried to hit Everybody's both times I visited Hood River but didn't have the time to go north. I seem to think I tried some of their beers and liked them. I really enjoy Solera and they might a spectacular view of Mt. Hood on the back patio.

Heck yeah I blog about homebrewing: Brain Sparging on Brewing but I'm also a lawyer: The Kielich Law Firm

I _think_ Greg is at Full Sail.  Jess is with Owen.
