Next up in Avery Brewing’s (Boulder, CO) Barrel Aged Series – is Volunt Plus Erat. The follow up to Odio Equum, this sour ale is brewed with cabernet franc grape must, and aged for 14 months in neutral zinfandel barrels. A neutral barrel means the oak will impart little to no oak flavor to the beer/wine. Cabernet Franc grape must is fresh pressed grape juice, that contains the skin, juice, seeds, etc.
No 14 and by complete coincidence, aged to perfection for 14 months in neutral Zinfandel barrels. The time necessary for our culture of lactobacillus and pediococcus to fulfill their portion of the workload- to create massive amounts of subtler lactic acid and acetic acid to interplay with the fruity Cabernet Franc grape must
