Juno Choi’s Patagonia IPA + 20% Off Patagonia Malts & More

Juno Choi BSG

Juno Choi With a PIle of Hops

One of the homebrews that stood out to me while attending the 2014 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 Bryan!

Update: For a short time (ends today 7/31), Great Fermentations is taking 20% Off their entire lineup of ingredients.  That’s right… every single ingredient.  That includes beer recipe kits and wine making kits!  That applies to ingredients used for this IPA.  Check out the Full Sale Details.

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.

Used Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Staves… $3.99!

Sliced Bourbon Barrel Staves 2 ct.

Sliced Bourbon Barrel Staves 2 ct.

Used whiskey barrels are popular… really popular.  5 and 10 gallon barrels usually sell out quickly when they become available.  They are also typically relatively expensive.

Adventures in Homebrewing has listed used bourbon barrel staves.  These sliced staves are approximately 1″ wide, 1/8″-1/4″ thick and 8-13″ in length.  They are from genuine Kentucky bourbon barrels.

Staves are a great way to get some of the barrel experience without the cost and space required for a barrel.  At $3.99 for 2, these are a bargain.

Oktoberfest from AIH

from AIH: “This Oktoberfest is a rich amber / mahogany in color. Vienna and Munich Malts add a nice depth and complexity.  With notes of light toasted malt, along with toffee and caramel. The flavor is malt forward with a toasted aspect, and just enough hop character to balance.”
