A coolship is a large open vessel traditionally used to cool wort before it is fermented. Usually left out in the open, in Belgium the wort would become innoculated by wild yeasts and bacteria naturally carried in from the air and surroundings to naturally ferment the beer without adding a controlled yeast pitch. This is one of those techniques that were not that long ago were thought impossible to recreate in America. Brewers are in love with spontaneously fermented beer because it captures a real terroir of it’s surroundings that the wine world has always boasted about. Fellow gorge brewer Logsdon Farmhouse Ales has been on the coolship terroir trip for awhile.
