Damascene 2022, Crossover Blendery - 6.5% Damson Golden Wild Ale
Process: A blend of 1 & 2 year old golden ales brewed with malted barley, malted rye, malted oats and raw wheat. Spontaneously fermented and aged in neutral French oak barrels. The beer was moved onto Damascene damsons (Styan Family Produce, Worcestershire) in tank. It remained there for 4 months with punch-downs performed during the initial stages of refermentation. The beer was then blended back with further components before bottling.
Conditioning: Packaged with a small amount of priming sugar for natural carbonation in the bottle. We do not add yeast at this point, or at any point in the process. Bottles laid to rest on side and conditioned until release.
