Czech-Style Pale Lager
Coolship 11° was brewed using exclusively floor-malted Moravian barley utilizing a three-step mash. It was hopped with Czech Saaz in the kettle before being racked to our Coolship for a short two-hour rest to produce an extremely clear wort. While in the Coolship we added a large dose of whole leaf Saaz hops. It was then cold fermented with a traditional Czech yeast strain provided by the Wild East team. After fermentation it was transferred to 500L Puncheons for extended cold lagering before packaging. Coolship 11° pours bright gold with floral and spicy aromatics that can only be achieved with whole leaf hops. The crackery malt profile is supported by smooth, clean bitterness making for an extremely drinkable 4.3% lager.
