Product details

Sour. Salty. Citrus and floral aromatics. Sounds odd, right? Well, history would say “no.” The Gose style has its roots in Germany over 500 years ago, and Duck Duck Gose is our take on the nearly lost classic. Tapped on its firm, brilliantly white foam head with hopes of not being the “goose”, Duck Duck Gose is brewed with lactobacillus for a pleasant tart sensation, while additions of salt and coriander bring this recipe full-circle to complete the intriguing sensory perception that is Gose. Tap into your inner child and play a game of Duck Duck Gose with us.

Brad’s Notes:
“The Gose style goes back hundreds of years, and nearly went completely extinct. Leave it to modern craft brewers to resurrect the style and see it flourish - it seems that I see more and more Gose releases by the week. So, here we are with our own. Sour, salty, citrusy and fruity, Duck Duck Gose is actually a rather complex beer. Kettle souring the wort imparts a delicious tart underpinning to the beer, while salt, coriander and a modest bittering hop addition create layers of flavors that perfectly play along with the wheat-based grain bill. The relatively modest ABV makes this recipe a real thirst quencher, and you can have a few, run around the circle and take a seat again before the alcohol catches up with you.

Fun (odd?) fact - Did you know that Minnesotans call the game “Duck Duck Goose” “Duck Duck Grey Duck”? I don’t get it… bunch of weirdos up here.”

Sour beer without the fruit fluff!

I can't seem to find a sour beer without some kind of "juicy pineapple" or "tangy guava" added. So ordered this kit and brewed my first ever sour with a buddy. Pretty straightforward process. We let it sour for 3 days: the second day I bought a heating pad to go underneath the fermenting pot, and at the end of the third day we finished the brew. Came out to be nice and sour! Some reactions gave that mouth puckering face but those who really liked sours thought it was great...me included! Unfortunately we didn't take an acidity reading, but you can make it less sour by finishing it earlier than 3 days. If you're looking for a good sour, look no further.

A pleasant surprise for a homebrew!

Let me start by saying that I was not knowledgeable or a big fan of sour beer before I brewed this recipe, but I wanted to try it because I hadn't brewed a sour beer before.  Bottom line - I was pleasantly surprised!  I tinkered with the recipe a little bit by raising the grain weights proportionately by about 32 percent and adding in one pound of cane sugar to try to boost the ABV a bit (it ended up being about 5.7 percent).   I also increased the boil time to 90 minutes because I live at 5300 ft above sea level with a lower boiling temp.  The final result is a beer with a moderate sourness balanced by a hint of saltiness, and a pleasantly full mouthfeel.  Cheers!

Duck Duck Gose

Still in the fermenter, but so far so good. Gonna add some grapefruit and cactus tomorrow, and I'll report back next week. Lacto did take 4 days, and I still only got to 3.6... not what I was hoping for.

A perfect kit

This was my second kit. Both easy to brew with excellent results. I’m transferring from Britetank to kegs. Each brew was 15 gallons - three kits.
