The Penrose Picobrewery
This is a site where I keep my brewing info up to date,
what's brewing, recipes, and my bragging section.
What exactly are spruce tips? Im guessing, since I live in the middle of a HUGE spruce forest, that I have thousands and thousands of them! Now that I think about it, is there any other 'exotic' ingredients you might need that I would have access to?I would really like to try this Ale...-R
Spruce tips are the bright green new growth of spring. They are sweet with a hint of wintergreen in the flavor. In colonial times they were used quite frequently.
I figured...I got LOTS of those! Would you like white or black spruce? Anything else from the north country? Think Norwiegian...
Do you brew with morel mushrooms?
I currently use black spruce from my brother-in-laws yard. I'll have to think this North Country idea........and I can hardly find enough morels for me to eat, let alone brew....
Hmmmm...up here, if we pick 50 lbs of morels in a day, we wonder if we need to find a new spot. My neighbor and I are already planning an extended morel outing, we are hoping to pick about 300 lbs apiece. If you want in on the fun, morels come up end of May, with the peak between June 5th and 15th...
