This carrot-seed ale uses just the seed heads and gives a hint of carrot and a layer of apricot.
Roasted carrots added to the fermentor impart sweet and caramelly character to this saison while the ginger adds a hint of spice.
Not only is basil extremely aromatic, but it also lends both a spicy edge and a sweet finish to beer—hops-like without the extra bitterness
Plan Bee Farm Brewery’s Evan Watson has provided this recipe for their farmhouse ale with dandelions and honey. He says, “If you’re crazy like me, [you can] cultivate a yeast via generations of starters and raw honey. Happy Brewin’.”
Take advantage of those fallen leaves and fresh carrots to try your hand at brewing a beer with foraged ingredients.
