Song of Binding was one of the first experiments we did where we placed an immersion chiller in our coolship to aid the cooling process. We don’t do this practice for our SPON beers (100% spontaneously fermented) for the sake of being as traditional as possible, but for beers that are more experimental, we’ve enjoyed seeing if we can extend coolship season a few weeks into the spring by using an immersion chiller.
Song of Binding was brewed with Hill Country well water, malted pilsner, malted wheat, fresh hops, and aged hops. It was inoculated in our coolship with airborne yeast and bacteria, then pitched with our mixed culture of brewers yeast, native yeast, and native bacteria. It was initially fermented in an oak foudre, followed by Pinot Noir barrels. It’s 6.9% alcohol by volume, 20 IBU, 3.3 pH, and has a finishing gravity of 1.001 (0.25 pH). It was brewed in April, 2016, and blended and packaged in July of 2017. It’s unfiltered, unpasteurized, and 100% naturally conditioned. This is our first and only blend to date."
