We’re pleased to introduce Jester King Rare Corals, a farmhouse ale refermented with guava, bananas, strawberries, cantaloupe, toasted coconut, and chamomile!
Rare Corals was brewed in September, 2016 with unfiltered Hill Country well water, two-row malted barley from Blacklands Malt, raw wheat, rolled oats, and hops. It was fermented in a stainless steel tank with our mixed culture of brewers yeast, native yeast, and native bacteria. It was then refermented with ~1,200 pounds (combined) of guava, bananas, strawberries, cantaloupe, toasted coconut, and chamomile. Rare Corals was bottled on December 5th, 2016 and was 100% naturally refermented in bottles and kegs. It’s 5.3% alcohol by volume, 22 IBU, 3.7pH, and has a finishing gravity of 0.999 (-0.3 degrees Plato).
Rare Corals will be released when our tasting room opens at 4pm on Friday, March 31st. It will be available by the glass and in bottles to go (750ml/$16). We have approximately 2,000 bottles available for sale with a bottle limit of three per customer per day. With only 2,000 bottles available for the whole batch, we don’t anticipate that Rare Corals will be distributed beyond our tasting room, aside from some special events.
