FROM COFFEE TO CAKE TO CRAFT BEER, A LOCAL BREWERY IS MIXING UP A NEW
PATCH THAT WILL APPEAL TO YOUR SWEET TOOTH AND IT INVOLVES THE
BONBONNIERE. JENNIFER SHAKE JOINING US FROM THE TAP ROOM. THEY ARE
USED TO MAKING UNIQUE BEERS AT BLANK SLATE BREWERY. THEY ARE GOING
FROM SOME OFEE BEANS TO CRAFTED BEER. WE DO A LOT OF DIFFERENT
EXPERIMENTAL BEERS HERE. THE BLANK SLATE BREWERY SPECIALIZES IN
CULINARY BEER AND SEASONAL SELECTIONS AND THEY ARE AT IT AGAIN. IT'S
GOT TO BE WITH THIS BEAN. THE OWNER DOESN'T TYPICALLY DRINK OR LIKE
COFFEE BUT HE MADE HEN EXCEPTION PAIRING UP WITH THE BONBONNIERE THE
INSPIRATION IS THE FAMOUS OPERA CREAM CAKE. BLANK SLATE IS BREWING A
CREAMY BREW WITH THE COFFEE SOLD AT THE BONBONNIERE. YOU TAKE THE BASE
BEER AND INFUSE THE COFFEE WITNESS. YOU TWEAK IT TO MAKE SURE THE
COFFEE LEVEL IS RIGHT. IT IS A 5.5% ALCOHOL WITH A COFFEE AROMA. THEY
USE 5 POUNDS OF COFFEE BEANS PER 220-GALLONS BREWED. WE DID A CREAM
STYLE, A MILK STYLE. LACTOSE ADDED TO IT IT GIVES THE BEER MORE BODY,
A LITTLE MORE CREAMINESS IN THE MOUTH FEEL. WE DID THAT IN ORDER TO
COUNTER BALANCE OUT SOME OF THE ACIDITY OF THE COFFEE. SO FAR THEY'VE
ONLY BREWED THE FIRST BATCH WITH MORE COMING DEPENDING ON THE DEMAND.
IT'S AVAILABLE AT THE PLANK SLATE AS WELL AS SELECT RESTAURANTS AROUND
CINCINNATI. JENNIFER SHAKE, WLWT NEWS 5. MAYBE WE'LL TRY IT AFTER WORK
TONIGHT. THE LAUNCH MUCH THE APRIL PRACTICE CREAM STOUT IS TODAY AS
BLANC SLATE BREWERY.
