Perennial Artisan Ales- Giant Steps (Blend 4)
Giant Steps Blend 4 is a marriage of spontaneously and barrel fermented beers with local yellow peaches. Fifty percent of the blend comes from an unseasonably cold night on the 15th of November 2019 in which we filled the coolship with a lambic inspired ale which fermented and aged in oak puncheons for 21 months. Twenty-five percent of the blend stems from a hoppy blonde ale fermented entirely in oak with a blend of Brettanomyces where it fermented and aged for 24 months. The final twenty-five percent consists of spontaneously fermented ale that was racked into our coolship on February 20th of 2020 where it fermented and aged for 18 months.
After their residencies in oak, each thread was racked out of oak and onto 2lbs per gal of locally grown and hand processed yellow peaches, Refermented for 2 months in stainless before being packaged into green glass bottles on October 15th 2021 where it has been conditioning since. 5.2%
