Beer style: Brazilian Malzbier
Target ABV: 4.5%
Ready for drinking: from 6th January

This is my attempt to produce some tasty Brazilian inspired beer for my Brazilian colleague who has the unenviable job of launching of a new document management system called “Knowledge” in a few weeks’ time at work. Hence, the name and hence my attempt at Portuguese!

It’s a beer style that is popular with women and children(!) in Brazil. It’s traditionally lightly hopped and very sweet and malty. I’ve taken a few liberties with the ingredients (ale yeast rather than lager yeast is a pretty major tweak to the recipe!) and cut down the sweetness a bit, but hope it captures something of the original style.
