MERCAPTAN

EXPERIMENTAL SERIES

Experimental one-off batches brewed outside the confines of traditional recipes.

CURRENT RELEASES:

"Nightcap"

Batch code: NC

ABV: 5.1%

Botanical infusions: lavender, chamomile, passion flower, valerian and copal resin

This brew was designed around a night time tea infusion. The inspiration came from a podcast episode on the role of a substance called adenosine in our sleep-wake cycle, and how caffeine can modulate its effect. 

Strong aromas of lavender and otherwordly copal resin are supported by a malty backbone. This brew is hopped to a low level to let the botanicals shine through.

There is an irony in that although the brew was designed to relax and promote a good nights' sleep, I often loose sleep over the excitement of creating new Experimental Series themselves!

======================================================

"Zingerone"

Batch code: Zing

ABV: 4.5%

Botanical infusions: ginger, lime and lemongrass

A saison married perfectly with subtle infusions of ginger, lime and lemongrass. Inspired by recent Thai dining, Rachel and I thought why not create a beer that would match the culinary delights of vibrant Thai cooking!

‘Zingerone’ is a major flavour component of cooked ginger, while ‘gingerol’ is the major fiery heat component from fresh, uncooked ginger. We infused ginger on the hot and cold side, so there are infusions of both compounds.

The acidity from lime partners well with the typical ‘funk’ from a saison fermentation. On our buds, a low-level warmth of ginger is present all the way through while lemongrass is most detectable on the nose and on the finish.

======================================================

"Summer Saison"

Batch code: SS

ABV: 4.1%

This is a slightly tweaked version of the Summer Saison we made in 2022. A colder fermentation, Möst hops and a lower ABV lets delicate notes of strawberry and green apple shine through. This is easily the most sessionable brew we make and will probably become a core beer going forward!

SPICE 

A warming release for the festive season and the dreary months of late Winter. Six spices and extra orange peels are combined with a slightly darker version of our Witbier recipe. Improving with age, savour this brew around the fire in Winter.
