Concord Grape Ale?

Recommended Posts

I have also started my second batch yesterday a variation of the "King's Nectar" recipe I. Call "Bacchus Ale"
1 can High Country Canadian Draft HME
1 can Pale Export UME
4oz Willamette Pellet Hops
1 cup honey
3 1/2 cup Concord Grape Juice
1 pkg American Ale Liquid yeast
Brewed 2/27/12

I'm going to be keeping close tabs on this and I am very excited about it. Tell me your predictions.

I've never made Kings Nectar, but between the grape juice and the honey that's a hella-lot of ajuncts. Let it condition a long time for it to achieve its maximum tastyness.

4 oz of hops seems like quite a bit. Are you doing a boil or are you dry hopping? If your just dry hopping I'd tone it down for a LBK size batch. Not that it would hurt it. Just seems like overkill.

I'm sorry i meant to say 1/4 oz hops. It is really working hard, has bubbled over twice. i just wiped the turb ooze off the outside of the keg with a clean rag in a bleach soultion. i took the lid off and wiped the vents and cleaned the outside threads. then i sealed it back. I was very careful not to get any inside. It has calmed down though. sitting at 68 degrees now.
