Northern Brewer just announced availability of “Conundrum” Session IPA. The recipe features Centennial, Amarillo, Simcoe and Crystal for hops. It’s worth noting that all of those hops are utilized both in the boil and as dry hops. I count a total of 5 ounces. For malt the extract version features Pilsner Extract along with Crystal 20, while the all grain version features Pilsner Malt, some Golden Promise, Crystal 20 and some White Wheat.
I received a recent More Beer order yesterday afternoon. That order included the all grain version of More Beer’s newer M-80 IPA. That recipe features American Pale Malt, Crystal 15, Columbus for bittering, followed by Simcoe, more Columbus, more Simcoe and a generous dose of Centennial for dry hopping. I’m using WLP-001. More Beer’s recipes also come with Priming Sugar, and a Whirlfloc tablet.
The directions call for three medium sizes oranges to be added a couple of days into fermentation. That’s both the zest and the fruit (discarding as much of the pith as possible). Sounds delicious to me.
From the beer description: “… Because of the similarity of hops, one MoreBeer! staffer dubbed it a mini “Pliny The Elder... but with orange”. High praise indeed.”
M-80 was designed by fellow homebrewer Carlos Musquez. Carlos is also a graphic designer and designed matching labels to go along with M-80.
