I recently brewed a Patagonia IPA/Amber that I had a chance to try at NHC this past summer.  The recipe is below with thanks to homebrewing legend Juno Choi  I got my first taste of the finished product last night.  Delicious.  The roastiness provided by the Patagonia Malts melds seamlessly with the hops.  The finished beer is a beautiful dark amber color.

One of the homebrews that stood out to me while attending the National Homebrewer’s Conference in Grand Rapids, Michigan was an IPA that was served by Brewer’s Supply Group (BSG) at their booth at the Conference.  It was… delicious.  Roasty, great hop character and easy to drink.  I swung by for two samples and shortly returned… for a third and it was gone.  After the conference, I got a hold of BSG to ask about the beer.  I learned that it was formulated and brewed by Juno Choi.  Juno kindly shared the recipe with me and I’d like to share it with you.  Thank you Juno!

The recipe features 100% Patagonia Malts from Chile.  Those were new to me and I think relatively new to the homebrew market here in the US, because… I had a very difficult time sourcing the grain for this recipe.  After looking around a bit, I contacted Bryan at Great Fermentations.  They already carried Patagonia, just not not all three varieties that this recipe calls for.  Bryan kindly sourced the remaining grains and has stocked them at Great Fermentations.  Thank you so much Bryan!

    How did this come out? I’m wanting to brew this, it sounds interesting with the Patagonian malts and New Zealand hops.

    I’m surprised with the using Motueka for bittering, does this work well? To me, it looks backwards, I would almost expect Nelson Sauvin for bittering, and Motueka for aroma.
