Our latest Site Fermentation Project series is an ode to the beloved foedre—so many stories tie back to this humble barrel. We created two special batches in two foedres; contrasting, yet complimentary sour styles.
Our oak foedre barrel was made in Hindmarsh, SA just after World War 2. For over 50 years it was used to age port, and a couple of years ago Dunc and Sam took it back to SA on the back of a ute to get it re-coopered.
This sour blonde was fermented and aged in the foedre back in Footscray, using a combination of selected yeast and bacteria.
It is a refreshing and complex sour beer, with a lively acidity.
This oak Foedre barrel (VAT 19) was made in Hindmarsh, SA by C.A. Schahinger. It was first filled with wine in 1997 at a prominent Hunter Valley winery.
This red ale was fermented and aged in the Foedre back in Footscray, using a combination of selected yeast and bacteria.
This is a complex and rich sour beer, with a deep yet lively acidity.
