Dark beer of 9 % with Caffeine
"Heymisse" is old Dutch for a local town called "Hemiksem". An old name still used in the Flemisch dialect by the local inhabitants. "Hemiksem" is a village of 10.000 habitants
south of Antwerp (Flanders / Belgium).
Malt : lager, municher
Contains a small amout of caffeine
This beer contains Guarana (Paullinia cupana), a climbing plant in the maple family. Its seeds contain about twice the concentration of caffeine found in coffee beans.
However the amount of beans used is very low resulting in an amount of 7 mg caffeine in one 33cl bottle. Just to compare this figure, a glass of cola contains 20 mg and a cup of coffee could contain up to 140 mg caffeine.
Every brew of this recipe is marked with a roman number because these brews are made periodically and the taste changes according the age and the fermentation on the bottle. With these numbers you can easily check which brew you have. The recipe always stays the same.
