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.

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.”

24″ Stainless Brewer’s Whisk – Extract, All Grain and Whirlpooling

I own this whisk.  It’s one of our Top Finds.  I think every full batch brewer should consider pickup one it.  Check out my hands on review of this whisk.

This whisk is great for: 1.  Stirring in extract.  It easily breaks up clumps, 2.  Stirring the mash and 3.  Starting a whirlpool.  If you’re a homebrewer, I think you should consider owning one of these babies.

HBF Reader Feedback…

Jared: After following your site for quite some time now, and purchasing many items because you let me know about them, I just received the 24″ whisk. I can’t believe how awesome this thing is just by pulling it out of the shipping package! I am so excited about this I might just have to brew this weekend even though I don’t really have the time. Not only would this piece be awesome for the mash, but dissolving LME and DME and keep it off of the bottom. What a great piece of equipment and thanks for sharing it!

Aaron: I have this exact same French Whip and love it, works way better than the old mash paddle I used before. It really cuts through the grain and helps ensure no dough balls etc. Definitely recommend this above any other stirring tools I’ve used!
