Cabinet Artisanal / Mikkeller Co-Brew # 1 “Singel”


Our original story on the Cabinet Artisanal / Mikkeller group of three co-brews is here…and another update today is here.  Based on the great photo of our pal Terry Hawbaker above (Note the Bullfrog T-Shirt), I suspect the yeast has arrived and co-Brew #1 w/Thomas from Mikkeller is underway.  The first beer will be named “Singel,” it will use Trappist yeast & be fermented (primary & secondary) in red wine barrels.  Details here from the Mikkeller Blog:

Today the Trappist yeast arrived to Cabinet Artisanal Brewhouse, and finally we could start brewing. The first beer to be brewed is called Singel. It’s a simple malt profile, American hops, primary fermented in a red wine barrel with Trappist yeast. Secondary fermentation will also take place in a red wine barrel, but with brettanomyces.

The picture on this blog entry shows Terry filling a wine barrel.
You will find many more pictures from this brew day at Mikkellers Facebook page.
