NEW BREW – TASTY PEACH PILSNER

With the rave reviews of my PlanetX Pilsner, I decided to make another experimental beer. After considering chocolate beer, pineapple beer and a number of other flavors (lime, too), I decided on Georgia Peach.

Not to be outdone, I chose not to use ‘flavoring’, and went with fresh, whole Georgia peaches, simmered in hot water to loosen up the pulp and make the skins bleed their gorgeous red color into the water. With the main ingredient done, I proceeded with the standard Pilsner process.

As anyone in Portland knows today, this is a frikin HOT summer (102 today!), and I must have seen it coming 6 weeks ago when I started the peach pilsner fermentation. I nearly doubled the yeast count in light of the extra peach sugars, and this jacked the final alcohol level way up past the 7% mark. An ice-cold brew like this could sell for $10 on the streets today – I’m sure of it!!

Here’s the label I made for the 16oz bottles. =) I wish you could taste it. It’s sooo good.
