Homebrew: Sun Outage

Submitted by DM on Wed, 12/04/2017 - 23:11

Having not brewed an IPA in quite a while it was time again.   Not wanting a heavy, authentically accurate India Pale Ale I've used American hops with a reputation for giving the tropical fruit flavour I love in IPAs.   I've made it a low strength alcohol beer as I prefer the taste of beer to the effects of them on me, also to keep it light & quaffable.

Mash - 1 hour 10 mins starting at 68°C and dropping to 63°C at the end.

2 Kg pale malt

50g acid malt

100g crystal malt

2g MgSO4

1g CaSO4

Boil - 1 hour
