For this year’s Queen’s Order, we used Tallow honey from Desert Creek Honey in Blue Ridge, Texas. This honey was quite funky and very floral in comparison to the Guajillo honey used in Batch 1. The lemons were sourced from Hernandez Farms in Weslaco, Texas.
Queen’s Order was brewed on March 20th and March 21st, 2018 with Hill Country well water, pilsner malt, malted spelt, rolled oats, Perle hops, Tallow honey, and Texas lemons that we dried in-house. It was fermented in our stainless steel fermenters with a mixed culture of native yeast and bacteria. At the time of packaging, Queen’s Order was 4.73% ABV, had a specific gravity of 1.000, 34 IBU’s, and a pH of 4.23.
