Welp, they’re at it again. Brewers from Schlafly, O’Fallon Brewery or New Albanian Brewery gathered together, this time at New Albanian, to put their mash paddles together and brew up another collaboration batch.
This time they’re brewing up a Smoked Belgian Dark Strong Ale that will be aged in “to be announced” Indiana and Missouri wine barrels and will also be infused with smoked figs. I don’t think anyone can accused them of not trying to do some interesting stuff with these collaboration beers.
Here’s a run-down of the beer recipe:
Malts: Castle Pale, Weyermann Rauch, Castle Biscuit, Briess Smoke, Castle Aromatic, Castle Special B
Adjuncts: Belgian dark candi sugar, Brewer’s Crystal, Molasses
Mash Hops: Mt Hood, Crystal
Kettle Hops: Magnum, Slovenian Celeia
IBU: currently calculated at 44, will degrade and be around 20 once it’s released
