What do you call a beer made with 14 different grains & adjuncts?

2012-04-30 all grains beer (12) (Small) Grainfloor Porter!  Imagine a working grain silo or mill that processed all sorts of different grains.  Expectedly there would be spillover and some would land on the floor.  This would make a potpourri of different grains all juxtaposed with one another.  Take a shovel and scoop up this derangement or medley of grains and make a batch of beer. 

Well, without dumping grains on the floor, I was inspired to add 13 different adjuncts and grains in conjunction with barley to make a one-of-a-kind beer.  Most beer will have specialty grains or adjuncts added and it makes up about 10% of the costs for the batch.  This beer is a rare exception and the costs of the adjuncts were 200% of the cost (compared with the base ingredients of water, barley, hops and yeast).

So what’s in it?2012-04-30 all grains beer (14) (Small)

Barley, Wheat, Oats, Corn (polenta), Rye, Triticale, Buckwheat, Rice, Spelt, Soybeans, Amaranth, Sorghum, Kamut, and Millet.

Grainfloor Porter will be released on June 1st at 4PM.  It is a based on a robust porter and clocks in at 7.1%ABV, the yeast attenuated the beer well so it isn’t too sweet.  Come taste 14 different grains/adjuncts at once!
