Today Henrik Imperial Amber was re-brewed at Lervig Aktiebryggeri. We are very exited about the beer and the fact that this blast of malts and hops is mere weeks away from consumption. We didn’t change anything about the recipe – so expect lots and lots of flavor. However, this was not the only brew hitting the copper today, but we’ll get to that a little later.
Bigger and better!
Today’s brew session yielded 16HL, or 1600 liters, of Henrik Imperial Amber wort that was sent straight to the fermenter where a big slurry of WLP001 was eagerly awaiting the sweet manna. That’s more than double the amount we brewed last time. In a couple of days a monstrous load of Amarillo hops is going to give this beer its signature aroma. We can’t wait!
New and improved!
As mentioned earlier the Henrik Imperial Amber Ale was not the only beer brewed at Lervig today. From the sweet wort of Henrik Imperial Amber an exciting new recipe for Lervig Winter Ale was born. The two beers were created from the same grist, the Henrik Imperial Amber one, and the same mash. After mash-out the two beers were boiled separately as the two beers have radically different hopping schedules. The Lervig Winter Ale also had lots and lots of raisins added to the boil.
Look for Henrik Imperial Amber Ale in a couple of weeks at Henrik Øl & Vinstue!
