First Coolship Fill of the Season

Last night we filled our coolship for the first time this winter. The winter of 2014 marks our second season of making 100% spontaneously fermented beer. Our first ever batches of spontaneously fermented beer took place in February of 2013. Those batches are now about 11 months old, and while still young, are exhibiting a lot of the characteristics we were hoping to see develop. We’ll continue to inoculate wort in our coolship every winter, and if all goes well, be able to blend mature, spontaneously fermented beer stretching back across a number of years sometime in the future.
