IPA is what I drink usually so I wanted to try my hand at brewing one. I’m new to brewing and this about my sixth batch. There’s a lot of recipes and kits to choose from but this “Fresh Squished IPA” caught my eye. I’ve enjoyed store-bought IPAs that promise citrusy flavors so this recipe seemed it should fit the bill. I’m really happy with the result. I won’t try and put it into flowery prose, but this beer just tastes darn good. You get a good mouthful with a lot of depth of flavors and a that subtle citrus that I was looking for. This is my best beer yet.
I did run into a little problem due to the dry-hopping secondary ferment. This is the second brew that I’ve made requiring dry hopping and I’m seeing where my problem is now. First time around I ended up with a LOT of leftover “floaters” in the bottles that took months to finally settle down and even then had to be poured very carefully. (Proteins I think?) I know that I wasn’t careful enough when siphoning off the beer before bottling. This time around I took a lot more care but still had a really hard time as the “flakes” stir up from the bottom of the carboy as soon as you even look at them!! This time around it was much better but I feel I had to leave way too much beer behind in the mud. Any advice from others would be appreciated. How about putting secondary hop pellets in a muslin sock to contain the flakes? Or are they indeed proteins that string together during infusion so they would pass through any mesh?
It’s been about 2 months since I started this brew and it’s perfect now.
Instructions were perfect and the brew turned out great. Really enjoy the fruity aroma and smooth taste.
Great tasting IPA! Not over the top citrus taste but a very pleasing taste that was not “just another IPA”! I would get this again.
Great beer. Takes 6 weeks but well worth the wait. Consistently good ( my 3rd batch over past 2 years).
Excellent brew! One of my best. Ordering another kit today.
