Announcing the 2nd AHB australia-wide funky/sour beer case swap


The first swap worked really well! see Funky Beer Swap 09 and now for the 2nd edition.

The 2010 swap has been timed so that the swap can be done at or around the 2nd aussie national homebrew conference (28-30 october), failing that, courier delivery seems reasonably priced for australia wide delivery.


Rules

The swap will occur at the end of october 2010 (beers Must have reached the swap point before or on the 29th of october to facilitate swapping at the 2nd ANHC)

Please only submit deliberately funked/soured beers that are of a pleasing nature!

The actual swap will occur via post/courier or by hand delivery at or prior to the ANHC

Please provide either 2 x 330ml or 1 x 750mL bottle/s per person

Your swap contribution may be made up of different beers i.e. 6 bottles of flanders red, 6 of lambic.

The swap will be capped at 12 initially (although I'm happy to expand this if everyone is happy to)



To be a part of this case swap please add your name and proposed brew to the following list.


1) Quintrex - berlinner weiss/strong lambic/ or oud bruin

Bingo! You've had USAlive? If it gets close to that I'd be happy:)

PS. Your "infected" beers came highly reccommended by Fents at the last Ale Stars as next month we are doing sour/wild beers.

6. Manticle - I'll put myself down for a tentative yes. Likely to be oud bruin with sour citrus but maybe sour citrus porter or oak and whisky lacto-stout. Results dependent obviously

I think I may have asked this last time but what's the consensus on the inclusion of something like a breton/normandy style cidre bouche?

Is that style tart/sour? haven't really had a traditional breton cidre before, although a love a good calvados.

I think it'd be ok, I doubt anyone would feel jibbed getting one. I see this swap as promoting the making and sharing of the more rare offerings that ahb's members make, so on that proviso I think it'd be cool. As always happy to go with the flow on this though.

Cheers

I'm not likely to pop one in this swap but it's just something I'm interested in brewing at some point in the future.

Breton ciders are brewed using only the apples - that includes the yeast. They are fermented at reasonably low temperatures for a long time (and matured likewise). My experience of them is (limited to only a few so far) is like a combination of fresh and floury apples, rich cheese and the mustiness you smell when you visit a winery. Really complex, definitely not for everyone but I reckon they'd fit in. Fermentation relies partly on chance and wild yeasts (which depends on the selection of apples etc). There is a mild tart/sour nature to them (maybe more like a faro than a geuze or kriek?) Again my experience to all of these is quite new so there's probably loads of variation within the styles.

Oooh seems like a ripper line-up so far, hey kook, how do you make a pseudo-gueze (not blending?).
A gueze is on the cards for me soon. I've got one batch of 2 yr old lambic now, and while voota is away, he's given me 2 batches of lambic to look after/blend with.

Just a single year primed with sugar to a high level. Cantillon Lou Pepe Gueuze is done this way.

I will probably end up blending though, time will tell :)

Well having spent a good part of the last couple of days refreshing my mind about brewing with brett by reading just about everything on the internet I could find about it, I've found myself wondering "what would that taste like with brett" with every beer I've drank. So tonight I bought some Orval and tipped the dregs into my already fermenting APA:)

Also thinking I might do a hoppy rye ale and dose that with some brett too.
