Beer – #1042 – Garage Project – Muse Au Naturel

“Brewers make the wort and yeast makes the beer”. Yeast is all around us and different strains can radically effect the flavour of a beer. There are all manner of wild yeast varieties floating around the Wild Workshop which can make magic tasting beers but would infect and ‘ruin’ everything in a traditional brewery. Muse has a very simple malt base which was fermented with Garage Project’s saison blend and Lactobacillus and aged in oak barrels. Lactobacillus is a bacteria which produces sour lactic acid. Muse serves as the marvellously complex yet drinkable tart, sour canvas to which Garage Project are building a whole series of beers on. Each iteration of Muse is made with different additions. The infusion of dry hibiscus gives this iteration of Muse striking colour, aroma and flavour. The freshly zested lemon peel makes for a long dry zesty finish.
