Blending at home or what to do with leftover beer
« Reply #100 on: May 11, 2020, 11:03:52 PM »
So, I got one of those carbonated growlers from growlerwerks (gallon size). I figured I have been buying more beer for home and a lot if hasn't been great. So, I decided to just blend it all together and keep it carbonated. First blend:

A few of the Bruery beers that I have not enjoyed (see cellar thread for more info)
Neighbors homebrew mead (decent stuff but I didn't need a whole 750)
Two Oxbow Dance Language variants
Half a bottle of Barolo

The blend is much better than the individual components. It mostly comes off as a lot of the sourness from the Bruery beers balanced by the none sour stuff and a lot of that mead coming through. Some red wine peaks through as well.

Depends on how long this pandemic does, I may do another blend in the future  :ale:

Infinity bottle (growler)? So it infuses CO2?

I usually cook with leftover beer, but idk about a sour cuvee. You could try making an oil & vinegar dressing.

Yup, from these guys
https://www.growlerwerks.com/

Its not bad. The great thing is I can have as much or as little at a time I want. I don't have to slug through a whole bottle.

I used to cook a lot with beer but mostly as a marinade. However, I do very little of that type of cooking nowadays. Plus, I can still cook with it if I wanted to. side from the CO2 cartridges, no additional cost.

Got halfway through the carbonated gallon growler. So, I replenished with an unfinished plastic growler of Union Old Pro (a local gose), leftover shitty sour quad from Breury, and a can of Foreign Objects Impy Stout (good beer but I need some more malt).

This Solera is turning out great.

Just put some lambic in a pilsner, not bad, not great. Don't really get the lambic character, just tartness.

Dovetail Pilsner, and the end of the bottle of Fontan-Elle from Lambiek Fabriek. Didn't attempt ratios or anything, roughly was 1 part lambic to 3 parts pilsner.

I bought Fond Tradition on clearance a few months back. Unfortunately, its garbage nowadays. I tried to salvage it by blending with Blvd Wheat. Didn't help. Got an 3rd bottle left and don't know what to do with it.

Horrible stuff. Idk why they still make it honestly. Van Hounsebrouck has a new 40 million euro brewery, state of the art everything. Seems a little disingenuous to still try to pass off a traditional lambic.

What a blend. How’d you even get into this situation

FWIW, I dumped then last bottle of Fond Tradition without even taking a sip. I’ve only done that with home brew before.

I’ve always done the Radler/Gin blend, but had some Yuzu Fierce on hand this time. Made it less sweet and a more interesting fruit blend.

Fond Tradition...never again  :-X

Hacienda Les Printemps + Cantina Giardino Paski

This seemed to improve the wine, and I feel like the best characteristics of the wine & beer came out in the blend. Oak, acidity, and honey from the beer, and lush tropical fruitiness from the wine.

GB of mine used to work for Founders.  He'd blend Rubaeus and All Day IPA when he was serving at festivals, calling it an "All Day Rub".  Surprisingly tasty.

Rubaeus + Breakfast Stout or Imperial Stout was a nice blend too, back in the day.

Blended a 2017 Cantillon Gueuze with a 19|20 Tilquin Gueuze, and it was great. The Cantillon had lower carb and more bitterness, Tilquin the opposite. Cantillon had more grapefruit, Tilquin more stonefruit, and they dovetailed nicely. Might blend 2 full bottles next time :o:

Drinking a crowler of a brewer’s blend: 75% Mango IPA & 25% Gose

Pretty damn good. Really surprised... falls into the sour IPA category I guess.
