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.
