Celebration is in order
« on: April 15, 2011, 10:31:48 AM »
My 50 L Oak Solera has had beer in it since 4-6-10.  It is currently full of the rochefort cherry w/ brett
and 8-10 # of fresh frozen balaton cherries marinating in the mix.  (don't forget the mahleb)

Since harvesting last fall, It is almost time to harvest 5 more gallons of this. Tomorrow I am brewing
a rochefort to replace another pull from the solera.

What a wonderful journey.  I have not sampled nor disturbed this for many many months....
kind of like a mysterious treasure.   ;D 8)

That sounds delicious!  What kind of rochefort recipe are you working with?  I have a soured oak barrel that needs refiling and want to try something similar.

And the make up beer
Brewed Herman Holtrop's Rochefort clone for the beer that will go into the solera after my next harvest from same.
Hit all the numbers and got a promising looking wert from the BK.


I love that mashwater software from John(plctech)   ;D

Hydro,
I did nothing unusual. I think I get real good results using the whirlyfloc and rapid cooling
with my immersion coil.  I have about 2 inches of break material in the bottom of my Hyd. Tube
that you cannot see due to skillful editing  ;D....and fyi, I just put break material and all straight
into the primary. (sorry took so long to post back to your question)

What's it taste like?
Bit too much carb today, I will stop with the gas it is fully carbed up...
Taste like sour cherry pie and smells like cherry...with a bit of the mahleb perfume.
It is good IMO....
Thanks Gordon it is pretty and I just can't get the camera to do it justice....
