Wet HOP Summer

Wet HOP Summer

Pale Ale – 5.5 Gal - OG 1.053 – FG 1.010 – ABV 5.6% - IBU 36 – SRM 4.7

It’s that time of year again, the hops that you have been trying to contain in your backyard are just about ready to be harvested. We’ve created a recipe that is an excellent template for using freshly harvested hops. A great balance of malty sweetness, that serves as a great backbone for your freshly picked hops to express themselves. We’ve paired the grain bill with 1 ounce of Magnum hops which will provide all of the bittering your recipe needs. and we’ve finished off the recipe with an expressive yeast from our friends over at Escarpment Labs. They recommend using English II, but Cali Ale and English I also make great alternatives.

If you’re outside of wet hop season, this reason still slaps – you just will need to use pellet hops at flameout instead of freshly picked hops.

This recipe is designed to complement almost every type of hop grown in Ontario. The Cascades, Centennials, Goldings, Nuggets and the myriad of other varieties that are grown in Ontario.
