Blueberry Tart

Sours at the Yak & Yeti? Well, not exactly.  I’ve been playing with acid malt and working some recipes that give tartness, not a true sour beer.  To explain, most sour beers have been inoculated with Lactobacillus, Pediococcus, and other various bacteria to give the beer a sour edge. Just like blue cheese, some people adore it, others loath it, the same can be said for sour beers.

I don’t really want to deliberately infect my lines just to have one sour beer, so I tried to compromise and use a clean method for producing a lower pH beer and mixed with blueberries, we get Blueberry Tart.  Inspired by the pie-like dessert, this beer has malts similar to a brown ale but has a ton of blueberry puree added in the secondary.  Released on Wed Oct 18th at 4PM.  Some like them tart, others nart!
