On the Rockpile 2016

Every spring I brew a Berliner weisse for the summer. It's a style that I enjoy in the summer. It's a low alcohol beer made with lactic bacteria and a German ale yeast. Sometimes it's sweetened with raspberry or woodruff syrup, sometimes 7up is added. But I like it as it is.

My Uncle Tommy spent time in Berlin during the service and patrolled the Berlin wall. They called it the "rock pile".

So Uncle Tommy...

Here's to you and the rock pile!

4# pils, 1# acid malt, 4# red wheat
