Recipe Export from BeerSmith
Largely taken from a recipe I found on the AHA app for a New England IPA. Then adjusted for available ingredients. As usual I am brewing 10 gallon batches and using a different yeast strain per 5 gallons.
In this case:
RVA Yeast Labs 104 Hoptopper
White Labs Pure Pitch Belgian Strong Ale
I like trying at least one yeast that doesn’t really match the style. The outcome is often really good. Recipe PDF below.
NEIPA – 222
Made a holiday beer with some friends… Update later with the recipe.
So I made a starter a while ago with the dregs of a Belgian Beer I made and an IPA from Hardywood Park Brewery… Looked healthy but hinted that it may have gotten a little wild. I meant to pick up some fresh ingredients to make a beer to toss this into and see what happens… Life got busy I didn’t get to the store… So this afternoon I rooted around the garage and found some leftover liquid and dried malt extract… And some hops hidden in the freezer. If it looks like its got some wild yeast in it in the coming days ill take some photos. Day Zero:

Kegged 5 gallons of my first All-Grain batch the other day… It is delicious!
Cleaned out cellar fridge this morning… Found 5 bottles of Bourbon Barrel Porter I made in ’11 …. Hell yeah!
First all-grain batch on all my new equipment! Made a Bavarian Wheat beer, but went way outside of normal IBU range for the style… Used two different yeasts… Weihenstephan on one Carboy and Bavarian yeast on the other.
Finally got another 15 gallon brew kettle and equipment to to all-grain batches! Got a March pump too! Everything came together on the same day! Thanks Northern Brewer!
Brew Day this weekend… a Sin Bin Saison! Since we have a few French guys on the team… I’m definitely getting the word “Frog” in the title somewhere! Maybe I’ll just call it Froggy… or… “Grenouille… a Sin Bin Saison”
Rugger Rye is on tap on my new 5 Gallon Keg and CO2 system (drained the first CO2 tank in one day I think from lack of tightening down at the tank). I have some Kenyan Grand Cru Coffee beans sitting on the other batch for a about a week… Bottling tomorrow! I want to get another keg soon!
