Team Tripel Threat

See, our team’s got it all – Dee’s the brewchemist, Shawn’s the humanaut, and George is our resident newt. Between the three of us, there’s no problem, no issue, no fix-it task that can’t be figured out, and no less-than-sheer wall that can’t be climbed. We’re awesome at this. And we like sharing our awesomeness with you!

Tasting Notes: Estery, with banana notes throughout, subtle hints of spice – nutmeg, clove, and coriander. Warmth from the alcohol and the heavy carbonation make it a bright, delectable beer.

Pair With:  Basil-heavy pizzas, herbacious pastas, citrusy desserts, salami and pungent cheese plates.

Brewday Notes:
6 October 2016 – 

We got a new mash paddle in! Up until now, we’d been using regular homebrewer paddles for our mash-in and stirring. Dee and Shawn both had toasted their little fingers one too many times too often trying to mash, and when we came in today there was a brand new paddle waiting for us!

Can you imagine trying to mash in over 600 pounds of grain with those two little mash paddles? How about stirring seven barrels of beer with that teeny tiny stick? The new mash paddle is a godsend.

The mash went so much smoother with our new paddle, and when it came time to whirlpool and knock out after the boil, the new big paddle was so much more effective than our previous method…which was to use our volume-measuring stick as a stirring stick. That didn’t usually work too well, so having a paddle to get a really good whirlpool going was so much nicer for Shawn, who has been designated as official whirlpooling master. Our new paddle is well-loved and an integral part of the brewday. Hail new paddle, paddle of our dreams.
