Upland Brewing’s Gilgamesh Now Malefactor

Upland Brewing Malefactor

Upland Brewing (Bloomington, IN) has renamed the epic sour ale Gilgamesh to Malefactor. The barrel aged Flanders style red ale is released once a year.

Continuing our adventure into the realm of sour ale brewing, we designed a recipe to create an Upland version of a traditional Flanders Red. Melding flaked maize into a turbid mash and adding Belgian candi sugar during a long kettle boil, we prepared this ale for epic proportions. We then incorporated wild yeasts and other acetic and lactic acid producing microorganisms for a year-long oak fermentation in bourbon barrels, which had previously been utilized to age beer. The journey was worth the hardships.

Style: Flanders Red Ale (Barrel Aged. Bourbon)
