Re: Carrot beer (Aargau)

Is he actually brewing carrots? Or is it more a carrrot alambic, analogously to Belgian fruit beers?

I'm not sure that fermenting carrots is a good idea.
mmmm, all the article tells:

I was quite surprised that there was still no carrot beer in Aargau, ”remembers the Briton. The father of two tinkered with the recipe and added carrots to the brew both during the boiling of the wort and during the subsequent fermentation.
If I understand well that's adding carrots when you warm up the malt to ~80C (boiling of the wort), and adding more carrots to the recipient where fermentation happens. Almost sure the carrot are just the flavor, no way to make a beer without grains.
