AIH Frozen Flame Steam Beer All Grain
Steam Beer! An ode to the Yooper, bitter but lovable at the same time. The Frozen Flame, is everything you expect in a Steam Beer. Well balanced with a clean lager-like finish. Lager-like character comes from Saflager S-23. This yeast will ferment cooler (58-65 °F) or at traditional ale temps (68-72 °F), and still finish clean. As folklore would have it. The winter after Paul Bunyan dug Lake Michigan, (a drinking hole for his Blue ox, Babe), he decided to camp out in the Upper Peninsula. The lumberjacks in camp didn't want the bunkhouse lit at night. In order to get some sleep, they moved the lanterns way outside of camp. After a while, they forgot about the lanterns. The Michigan Winter got so cold, that the flames of the lanterns froze solid. When the thaw came in early spring, the lanterns flared up again and set all of northern Michigan on fire! They had to wake Paul Bunyan up so he could stamp out the fire with his boots. To you, with hopes that the Frozen Flame Steam Beer can quench even the biggest of thirsts!
