We're pleased to release Blacklands Helles Munich-style Lager -- brewed in collaboration with our friends at Blacklands Malt in celebration of their 7th anniversary! It was seven years ago that Blacklands brought local, craft malt to Texas. In celebration of their pioneering effort, we brewed a Helles with 100% White Horn Pilsner Malt with Blacklands. We found this fitting, as White Horn Pilsner was Blackland's first batch of malt.
Blacklands Helles was single-decoction brewed in August with softened Hill Country well water, White Horn Pilsner Malt, and Tettnang, Hallertauer Mittelfrueh, and Spalter Select hops. It was fermented with lager yeast from Community Cultures Yeast Lab, then lagered for five weeks. Clean, crisp, fairly hoppy, and very drinkable. 4.8% abv.
