Home Brew Project #34 BerryMe Cider by Nubis Sanctum Ales is a 6% ABV Hard Apple Cider with Raspberries and Hibiscus.
Homebrewed for my friends Cesar Molina & Jeanette De La Luz wedding on 9/3/2017.
The special project was brewed in collaboration with my friend Oscar Pacheco and Cesar Molina for drinkers that wanted something not beer related and more closer to sparkling wine. The recipe was similar to my original project (Home brew #20 Las Manza Cronicas De BatFramb by Nubis Sanctum Ales) in which the base was an apple cider with raspberries. The difference in this one was that I needed to get some sort of red or pinkish color to the beer and through research and discussions with my friends, we decided hibiscus would do the trick adding a very nice reddish pinkish color similar to that of the raspberries to make it more appealing to those that love sweet drinks. In fact, it was very good and although it was a bit higher than the Summer Ale, people digged this one even more. For me I could definitely tell it was sweet but the hibiscus gave it some very nice tart flavors playing and mimicking that of the raspberries. In short, it was a recipe well done and one I will definitely try and make again.
