_artfuldodger Cerveza de Tempranillo - Refermented Tempranillo grapes from California with mature, barrel-aged wild beer. This beers employed a wine making technique called a punch down. As the grapes referment, they rise to the top of the oak barrel to form a cap. Several times a day we punched down the cap with a stainless steel mashing tool to break it up. This procedure was important to achieve good flavor and color extraction from the grapes and to prevent the cap from drying up and becoming oxidized, which can lead to unwanted growth of acetobacter. Acetobacter, while harmless to consume, creates vinegary flavors and aromas that we dislike very much in beer. Punch downs and temperature control in our barrel room were important parts of our effort to keep acetobacter at bay.
The base beer for Cerveza de Tempranillo was made from blending oak barrels of pale, sour beer. It’s 9.4% alcohol by volume, with a finishing gravity of 1.000 and 3.7 pH. The base for Biére de Merlot consisted of a single oak barrel of pale, sour beer. It is 8.5% alcohol by volume, with a finishing gravity of 1.001 and 3.6 pH.
