Well that's certainly diplomatic and very fair of you Paul, i'll have to reserve my judgment until my first taste. Seems a few of us Brizzy people want a taste, maybe we'll have to get a private shipmentMercs Own said:OUCH! The rate beer review hurts a bit but I also cannot fault it. I just like those qualities more then the reviewer does.
Geez, and you freely give away your recipe. Most people keep these pretty close to their chest. I wonder how many people have experience enough brewing peach beers to coment though... :blink:So the recipe for anyone who may want to make it at home or even make comment on how I could improve it:
75% pale malt, 25% wheat, 10% depectinized peach juice two additions tettnang hops - bittering 60 mins aroma at turn off - London ale yeast fresh from the fermenter. Srm 4 ibu20 alc 5.5% from a total malt bill of 235 kilo.
What, not another micro aussie pale ale? <_<Mullet says..."It annoys me that yet another new Australian micro beer is taking the novelty route as opposed to concentrating on making some good, solid beer, which is what the industry in this country so desperately needs" Paul says..What annoys me is when a new micro brewery brings out a clone of what is already available many times over. My mission is to engage, educate and push the boundaries of what people percieve beer to be and to encourage and enlighten people to what be beer can be.
Pumpkin Ale? Now THAT sounds interesting, i'm not sure what joe public would think though, i think you might need a pretty good rep to get people to stock that one, although i'm sure it's delicious.I have a more mainstream style beer in the works that I hope will sit by the Peach Ale harmoniously well. But true to form it will be a little different and no it is not my much touted Pumpkin Ale!!
Just market it as 99% fat free Low GI Low carb etc etc with the added goodness of real pumpkin!jgriffin said:Pumpkin Ale?

Cheers and :beer:
mercs own - Ijust enjoyed a bottle of Baders golden Glory, brewed with extract of peach blossom - have you tried it?Mercs Own said:!
Jgriffin, I dont know of many or any people that have done a peach beer maybe because it is not actualy all that suitable??! I dont know of any commercial examples besides the belgian styles which my beer is not akin to and which are often essence based.
Mercs Own said:Pyramid brewery in Seatle does an apricot ale which is quite good although the apricot is from an extract and is very perfumed something I could have done but didnt want to. The peach juice is fantastic but once the yeast gets through with it there is not much peach left.
And sadly yes I am working on a micro pale ale. If a peach ale is too much then a pumkin ale will be too so a micro pale ale will be next. Got to make sales and keep Mullet happy
