Juno Choi’s Patagonia IPA Recipe + Patagonia Malts at Great Fermentations

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!

Beer Tower Cooler – Fight the First Foamy Pint! – $40.79 w/15% Off Sale

This Beer Tower Cooler helps keep your draft tower cool and reduces foam… saving that first half of beer that sometimes needs to be discarded.  Fights what I call the first foamy pint.

Description: ‘This product is designed to cool a beer tower on a direct draw type draft beer system. The number one complaint about any direct draw kegerator is that the beer faucet & shank get warm and your first 1/2 glass of beer is always foamy. But the solution is less than 5 minutes away – just install this tower cooler. It works by continuously blowing a small volume of cold air into your beer tower and the cold air keeps your beer shanks and faucets ice cold. A side benefit is that the continuous cold keeps faucet mold and bacteria growth at an absolute minimum. Installs in minutes with no tools!’

As of this posting, this is selling for $47.99.  GF has a 15% off site wide sale going on.  That sale works with this tower cooler making it $40.79.  Also works with GF’s flat rate shipping. Use coupon code HR1337 to get the deal.  Check Great Fermentations for current availability.
