Another month passes without a Steel City brew… but finally a second brew of the year is on the horizon! Forked Tongues is a ‘home’ collab with Isaac from Spanish craft brewery Reptilian. The collab has been an idea since meeting at Birrasana beer festival in Catalunya a few years ago, and is finally happening. Both brewers love their citrus hops, so Forked Tongue is a 100IBU+ Transatlantic Pale Ale featuring Chinook hops and a shedload (scientific measure of quantity there) grapefruit.
The Lost Steel Industry Mojito Sour test batch was an unqualified success, and the sourness so extreme the guys sent a sample to be tested at the Thornbridge lab. The first test revealed a pH of 3.45, and the second revealed a score of ‘sour as ****’ from Dom. A full-length brew has now taken place on Lost Industry’s big kit, so look out for it over the summer!
