Juno Choi’s Patagonia IPA + Two Brew Day Pictures

patagoniaipaMash on the left (BIAB) – Close up of the Grain Bill on the right

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!

On to the recipe…

All Grain:

Fermentables:
10.8 lbs Patagonia Extra Pale Malt
.6 lb Patagonia Caramel 90L
.6 lb Patagonia Caramel 190L

Hops:
60 Minutes – 2 OZ Motueka
10 Minutes – 2 OZ Pacifica
1 Minute – 2 OZ Nelson Sauvin

Mash for 60 Minutes at 152 deg F

Ferment with Safale US-05 at 68 deg F

About The Beer, Estimates:
OG: 1.061 at 70% Efficiency
FG: 1.017
ABV: 5.76%
IBU 73.31
SRM 17.78

Extract:
The all grain recipe features Patagonia Malts from beginning to end.  Extract Patagonia Extra Pale Malt doesn’t exist.  You could still get the same idea by substituting 8 lbs of Liquid Malt Extract for the Extra Pale and steep the caramel malts.  That gets you the same gravity and pretty well everything else, although the SRM does go up to 18.74.  Again, not the exact same beer, but you will get a lot of the great roasty flavors from the Patagonia Caramel Malts and all of the hop character.

Guest Post: Pure Land Pale Ale – Brewing with Patagonia Malts + Kegging Deals

Patagonia Malts

Special Thanks to Wes via Great Fermentations for this special Guest Post!

The history of Patagonia malts dates back to 1896, after a wave of German immigrants settled into the central and south of Chile, bringing with them the history and tradition of fine German beer making. Naturally, they brought with them brewing, malting, and barley cultivation. Two German brothers started the Talagante Malting Plant, which was purchased by the Chadwick family in 1916. Through consolidation and growth, the company owned by the Chadwicks eventually became what it is today, Maltexco S.A., the largest producer of base and specialty malts in Chile.

Maltexco S.A. works closely with farmers and developmental scientists to breed and create a superior malted barley product from start to finish, perfect for the production of world-class beers.  They deal in a blend of Barke, Sebastian and Scarlett barley varieties that were brought over from Europe with the wave of German immigration. However, over the past 100+ years these barley varieties have been cultivated in Chile, they have been adapted to the unique geography, topography and climate found in the valley of the Andes mountains next to the Pacific Ocean. This long history in a unique environment has made for some truly unique malts with superior flavor and brewing characteristics!

Only recently has Great Fermentations been able to get ahold of Patagonia malts. While they are relatively new to the market here in North America, those brewers who have been lucky enough to use them have been astonished by the flavor and unique character contributed by Patagonia malts. The Patagonia Extra Pale can be used as a substitute for standard American 2-row brewer’s malt with astounding results. Patagonia also makes a range of unique crystal malts which are rich and delicious!

Want to see what all of the fuss is about? Brew along with us!

Pure Land Pale Ale, so named due to the purity of the Patagonia region, is basically a standard pale ale with no big surprises. It uses straight Cascade hops utilized in three additions, and standard Chico yeast to ferment. This simplicity is in order to focus on the malts: Patagonia extra pale as the base, with a blend of Patagonia crystal 90L & 190L for body, color, flavor, and head retention. While these are a bit dark and will lead to a pale ale that borders on the dark side for the style, the crystal malts will also contribute a light complexity like no other.  It is a relatively simple recipe, but it should yield a very enjoyable and unique pale ale!

Give it a try, and remember, as always, to give us feedback! We’d love to hear what you think about these malts. Cheers!

About the Author Wes has had an intense interest in brewing craft beer for ages. His brother, a brewer at Hair of the Dog in Portland Oregon, as well as the head brewer at Alameda Brewhouse, a local brewpub, first introduced Wes to craft beer during summer trips to Oregon when he was younger. After graduating with a degree in Communication from Indiana University, Wes went to Korea to teach English. Unable to find a good beer in the country, Wes soon turned to home brewing to produce his much-loved ales. Upon returning to the states, his interest took off, and he continued brewing incessantly while taking biology and chemistry classes at IUPUI. As of 2014 he has been brewing for seven years. Known around Great Fermentations as a serial brewer, he produces a vast array of different beers, as well as wine, mead and cider.
