Notes

Co-Pitched Goodbelly Lacto and Belle Saison at 70° and brought to 80 gradually over 5 days by adding 1° in the morning and 1° in the evening.

After 3 days a hop tea of 1oz Saaz and 1 oz EKG boiled in 2 cup of water for 10 minutes was then added for a small amount of hop flavor (we wanted the lacto to work for the first 3 days).

The fermenter was kept at 79-81 for 10 days after reaching the 80° mark and 5 gallons was kegged (leaving just hop matter, yeast and some juniper berries in the bottom along with a couple inches of cloudy beer.

4 oz of gin was added to the keg. This gin had been soaking for 2 weeks in an 8oz mason jar with a a few wine barrel stave chunks. This did not drastically change the flavor of 5 gallons of the beer but did add a small amount of gin/juniper flavor and overall complexity.
