So, 2017 has officially begun, and we started it off in by travelling to Bute to help brew some beer…!
As some of you will know, we have been collecting waste sourdough throughout 2016. All those loaves not purchased from the Deli / markets, or seconds that didn’t make the grade, have made their way into the freezer. And not just us; our friends Liz and Stuart at Greenfry (think ace Bute micro bakery & cafe) have been doing the same. Between us we had enough for a brew, and thanks to Aiden at the Bute Brew Company there is now a 500l test batch of beer made with waste sourdough to an open source recipe from Toast Ale. It’s due to sit in a fementing tank, bubbling away to reach a 4.3% alcohol content, before this golden beer will head into a conditioning tank for a month of chilling, before we all get to taste and distribute for feedback. Slow food (and drink) takes time, just like sourdough – if your interested in getting some of this first batch (or you can come up with an apt sourdough beer name for the brew!) contact us.
