More Beer teamed up with Vinnie Cilurzo to put together a recipe kit for Russian River Consecration. The recipe is directly from Vinnie. From what I gather, these kits are very popular. Along those lines, at times, they can have a hard time keeping them in stock.
A bit about the recipe… “Beer lovers rejoice! Vinnie from Russian River Brewing Co. has released his Consecration recipe to us, and we’re very proud to be able to offer it to the homebrewing community. Consecration is a sour dark ale aged in a Cabernet Sauvignon barrel. It is aged for 4 to 8 months with currants and brettanomyces. You can look for rich flavors of chocolate truffle, spice, tobacco, currants, and a bit of Cabernet.” (keep reading)
Availability of these kits can be touch and go. There have been long periods, months at a time, where they are not available. All versions are available as of this posting. For a short time, MoreBeer is taking $5 off every single one of their recipe kits. That includes Consecration.

A note on Consecration: I’m not big on picking favorites. I think there are far too many good things to pick favorites on most things. Having said that, if I were going to write down a list of my favorite beers, Consecration would certainly be towards the top. This is an amazing beer.
