RECIPE: FerMENTORS Series – Jester King Brewery

Within a catalog of legendary beers, Jester King’s Le Petit Prince uniquely stands out as an oak-aged, Belgian-style table beer refermented on fruit.

What better way to show off this rare culture than by highlighting its use in a beer with such beautiful, delicate flavors.

Jester King Brewery Culture

Primary ferment between 6-10 weeks.

Package once the gravity has stabilized as close as possible to 1.000. When ready, add enough dextrose to reach an average CO2 level of 3 volumes. If available, and a small amount of the Jester King Culture during packaging to ensure proper refermentation.

Wait at least 3 weeks after packaging for beers to condition and carbonate. Any off-flavors will dissipate with additional aging
