Our latest Site Fermentation Project series is an ode to the beloved foedre—so many stories tie back to this humble barrel.
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.
