Cuor di Pane
The love for our Planet has inspired a new Otus beer.
The latest creation by Otus is a low-fermented pale lager, produced while being aware that Earth’s resources are not endless.
Is it possible to limit food waste? That’s the question we asked ourselves while imagining the new lager. To produce Cuor di Pane we use unsold bread we buy from original bakers, then we mix it with barley malt to have a Helles with a moderate ABV, perfect for every occasion.
“I have always cared about environmental issues and I think we should reach a socio-economic system able to create a sustainable organic change between man and nature” [Alessandro Reali]
Using bread for beer production dates back to Sumerian times and it appears in the most ancient beer recipe found by archaeologists.
In ancient Babylon a clay tablet dating back to 3.700 b.C. was found – known with the name “blau monument” – on which offerings to the goddess NinKasi, among which beer, are depicted. The cuneiform script describes the fermentation process and baked bread appears among other ingredients like malt and barley.
Per evitare che il glutine rilasciato dal pane si agglomeri e produca amaro si sono via via evolute tecniche che permettono la produzione di una bTo avoid that the bread-released gluten agglomerates and produces bitterness, techniques have been implemented to produce a pleasant beverage tending to sweet.
Thank to an innovative production process, Cuor di Pane is a gluten-free beer.
Perfect with vegetables or white meat dishes like chicken with sweet peppers or rabbit in mustard sauce, Cuor di Pane shows itself as a well-balanced and not bitter beer. With the first sip only, a rustic and scented hint derived from cereals can be perceived, opening then the stage to a bread crust flavour. Then, the taste remains stable on herbaceous scents that, in the end, reveal an intense and charming honey flavour. Cuor di Pane is clear and shows a great golden colour with a long-lasting wheat-perfumed head. A beer with a delicate but strong character.
