Notes

mildly inspired by?

http://www.themadfermentationist.com/2015/07/apricots-lactobacillus-and-hops.html

measured pre-boil gravity after 4 days of souring at 1.042 or 1.043. Sweet wort tastes a little sour, definitely lots of cooked corn aroma, which I hope will boil off. Boiled for 90 mins.

After 8 days of fermentation, refractometer read 6.8 brix, which puts this at about 1.006. After chilling, the sample was moderately sour but very clean, not having much saison character. Apricot puree added after 8 days of fermentation.

3/14: sampled, apricot added a nice background note. added 1 pound of frozen mangos.

next time consider using wyeast forbidden fruit, which is known to produce peachy notes?
