New: Life’s a Beach Session IPA – Extract and All Grain

Session IPA

New Life’s a Beach Session IPA from Great Fermentations

About Life’s a Beach “A wonderful session IPA from local brewer Mark Schiess, winner of our 2014 Session IPA contest. Life’s A Beach is a small session beer that drinks like a big IPA! Very smooth, the low ABV on this beer means that you can have several in a session without falling flat on your face. But that doesn’t mean it’s light on flavor! Crystal 20 malt provides residual sweetness and body on top of the base, with Maris Otter rounding out the malt character with a bit of breadiness. A melange of hops dominated by Amarillo give this beer its delicious hopiness! A perfect beer for the beach, or any occasion!”

The extract version features Crystal 20L, Maris Otter, Centennial, Amarillo and Simcoe.  The all grain version features Avangard Pilsner Malt, 2 Row, Crystal 20L, Maris Otter, Centennial, Amarillo and Simcoe.

GigaYeast Double Pitch Vermont IPA Yeast – Conan Strain – Back in Stock

Availability on GigaYeast’s Double Pitch IPA Strain has been touch and go.  It’s available again as of this posting.  Put together a $59 order and it ships for free.

Idea: Brew MoreBeer’s Brewmaster Series Pliny the Elder Recipe (See: Brewing Pliny) and use GigaYeast Double Pitch Vermont IPA Yeast as your yeast.  This is something I would like to try.

GigaYeast's Vermont IPA Strain

From the product description: “The Vermont IPA strain from Giga has a strong, growing following if you search the web. The problem is the supply has not been able to keep up with demand. MoreBeer! worked with Giga to get all they could produce and was able to offer this product via mail order for the first time.”

Some Heady Topper clone recipes suggest this yeast.  Although the official description doesn’t say this… many believe that this is the Conan strain of yeast.

This is a double pitch (200 Billion cells) pouch.  Read more about that and this strain on the product page.

Hop the Atlantic Double IPA – Huge malt character and hop flavor, together at last!

Russian River’s Blind Pig IPA – $33.99

Russian River Blind Big IPA

Product Description – Here.  Use coupon code BEERDEAL to get this discount.

About: This is the original homebrew recipe that was the basis for Blind Pig IPA which won Silver Medals at the World Cup of Beer and the Great American Beer Festival in 1996, the last year Vinnie brewed it. Two ‘dry hop’ additions along with 1 oz of American Oak are added directly to the fermenter after the first week of fermentation. To say it is a very unique, extremely flavorful IPA is an understatement. Vinnie recommends using White Labs California yeast, WLP001.  (keep reading)

Big Little Guy IPA, Inspired by Founder’s All Day IPA

Big Little Guy Session IPA

Big Little Guy Session IPA is available in both Extract and All Grain.  It is a session IPA inspired by Founder’s All Day IPA.

Session IPAs are generally lower gravity beers that are hopped to the same level as a typical IPA.  I’m particularly fond of All Day IPA and I thought it would be great to brew something similar as nicer weather has arrived in my area.  The extract version of this beer is on the docket!

Description: “Inspired by Founder’s All Day IPA, Big Little Guy has all the hop flavor of a big IPA, with the low alcohol and smoothness of a session beer. With a short 20 minute boil and loads of pine and citrus notes from Amarillo, Simcoe and Crystal hops, this beer is a breeze to make!”

Features – Pale Malt, Crystal 20L and 60L, Dark wheat malt, flaked oats along wit Amarillo, Simcoe and Crystal Hops.
