I use the yeast/bacteria cake from my Berliner Weisse to make a Gose beer. Gose is a historic and often forgotten style of beer from Leipzig and Goslar Germany. It is a wheat beer with a lactic tang and a dose of coriander and salt. I have made this beer before with nice results. Last time the beer was very balanced with only a slight coriander and salt presence. This time I think I may up the salt and coriander. I am making a 10 gallon batch, and splitting it into two different versions. I was inspired by Cascade brewing companies Gose for every season. I will do a traditional 5 gallon batch, and I will do a 5 gallon batch with cranberries, and cinnamon, possibly clove as well. I am shooting for a holiday Gose, something tart, and spiced.
Ingredients: US 2-Row, White Wheat Malt, Coriander, Kosher Salt. Winter version will have cranberries, cinnamon and cloves added to secondary.
