Inoculation Method(s): Coolship
Description: OXCART is a blend of 1, 2, and 3 year old beers made using malted barley, unmalted wheat, and oats. Each batch was made using a coolship and allowed to cool overnight. While cooling, airborne wild yeast and other microbes inoculate the wort and are eventually responsible for 100% of the fermentation. The beer is fermented and aged in neutral oak barrels for 1-3 years, then blended into the final product. It is bottle condition and can be cellared for decades. OXCART is the purest expression of our goals with Black Project, and is a beer so complex it is difficult to describe. Notes of peach, apricot, fresh hay, wild flower fields, tart berry. Spontaneous fermentation yields what I believe it extreme complexity and depth of flavor. We hope you enjoy and appreciate this year's blend, the first edition of OXCART.
