DetailsDripping with vivid flavors, this clone recipe is the beer equivalent of visiting your local fruit stand. Flavors and aromas of grapefruit, melon, berries, lime and passionfruit drizzle into a faint herbal, piney background. Fresh Squished's sturdy malt foundation of sweet crystal malts and toasty munich concedes to this indulgent use of Citra and Mosaic hops to achieve remarkable balance. Pale copper in color, Fresh Squished is overlaid by a fluffy, rich beige foam cap, allowing the juicy aromas to ooze out of this Pacific Northwest inspired clone.

4.9 / 5.036 ReviewsDelicious!I wish people would write what kind of water and yeast they used but anyway I used distilled from target and s05 yeast. Fermented in primary for 14 days then dry hopped in primary for 7. Kegged and put another ounce of citra and mosaic each t9 cold dry hop whIle carbonating. Wow this stuff tastes and smells awesome! Perfect summer beer will buy againJune 8, 2016Fresh Squished IPA is on tap!Shipment nicely packaged. Brewed this 12-30-15, Kegged 1-28-15. Hit both gravity readings on instructions, used the Safale US-05 Dry Yeast. Active fermentation then racked to secondary. Dry hopping the Mosaic and Citra gives the aroma of the beer a addictive reason to pour another one. If your thinking about purchasing this one just go for it! BKFebruary 4, 2016PerfectIf you love flavorful hops this is a must. I added clementine pulp to mine in the primary and added more plus their skins to the secondary. it's just perfect!June 11, 2016Nice and RefreshingNice and easy. Followed the directions until the addition of hops and secondary at 2 weeks. I just dumped the extra hops into the fermenter and left everything hanging out for another 3 weeks before filtering into a keg. From the 1st glass I got a nice and refreshing citrus smell. Taste wise there is hints of pine and citrus, nothing overpowering and each are very accommodating to each other. I will be making this one again down the road.July 22, 2016Best batch yet!!Have brewed several kits and this one stands out above all the others. Great citrus flavor with a nice malty backbone to balance out this great IPA. Keg emptied sooner than I thought it would.July 29, 2016A must tryI am a huge fan of nearly any IPA but this is the best one I've tried. Good as is and also good if you have extra hops you need to use up. I spiked the dry hop this last time with an oz. of cascade. Well balanced bree and a must try for the IPA fan.November 26, 2016Great tasting crisp beer with a hoppy hint of bitter grapefruitGreat flavor exactly what I was looking for. When you can let the hops do the job of a fruit extract it is a win.January 13, 2017Purchased

Browse 16 questions Browse 16 questions and 53 answersDoes this come with yeast?BEST ANSWER: Yes it does. you can also choose a dry or white labs yeast for your kit. I prefer dry yeast and making a yeast starter before you pitch your yeast into your wort.
CheersWhat steeping grains are in this kit?BEST ANSWER: Hello Tim,
Thank you for choosing Midwest Supplies! The steeping grains for the Fresh Squished IPA consist of 0.5 lbs Weyermann Caramunich III. I hope that this helps!Does this come with yeast?BEST ANSWER: Yes, 1 packet of dry yeastDoes this have more of a Grapefruit or Pineapple taste?BEST ANSWER: The beer definitely has a grapefruit and mildly hoppy pine flavor and smell. Not a bold IPA that's for sure, but plenty of mild fruit and mellow hop flavors. A very refreshing change-up for one who relishes bold hop flavors which can sometimes overwhelm.Are the grains already milled or need to be rolled?BEST ANSWER: The grains were "brew ready" (already milled). This was one of the better kits I have purchased, especially since I wanted an IPA w/ that citrusy taste for summer. Definitely didn't disappoint, and friends really enjoyed.Do this come with priming sugar?BEST ANSWER: Yes, Midwest ships priming sugar with every kit I've ever used.Is this too Citric tasting?? Subtle flavor good- just don't like too strong Citric tasting IPA.BEST ANSWER: Citra and mosaic are bursting with citrus flavors but the mark of an amazing beer is balance. There is sufficient pine and herbal notes to create a complex hop profile and tosty and full malt flavor provide balance to the hops. A dry finish and medium body make it quite refreshing and begs for a second pint.New to kegging, what psi is suggested for pressurizing?BEST ANSWER: I usually do 30 psi or so for a couple days then back it down. If you over do it, you will end up with a bad, foamy pour till excess is lost. Better to go slower till your happy then rush it. Just google search and you will find many methods.I plan on making this for my first batch of summer, any suggestions on what yeast to get with it?BEST ANSWER: Hello Travis,
Thank you for choosing Midwest Supplies! I would use the Safale US-05 or Wyeast 1056. Both will give the beer a similar flavor profile. I hope that this helps, let me know if you have any further questions!My beer isn't bad but it ended up with a strong malt smell and after taste that doesn't go well with it. I did a full volume boil, followed the hopping schedule and a 1500 starter using DME. Fermentation went as scheduled. Any idea what caused the off flavor?BEST ANSWER: That is strange. I did this beer not to long ago and put it in the keggerator and it was one of the best IPA I have done. Turned out great. The only thing that I might think that could happen is if the malt scorched a little bit when boiling and it gave a stronger flavor. That is the only thing that came to my mind but I don't know if that happened to you. Sorry. Really not much help. I would give it another try for sure because me and my friends really loved this IPA.Hi, can I brew this IPA using the Platinum Pro Beer Brewing Starter Kit?
Would I need any additional equipment?BEST ANSWER: We recommend doing a second-stage fermentation, which would require a second fermentor. This is optional, and that would pretty much be it!Is this recipe available anywhere? Midwest won't ship to me (US territory.)BEST ANSWER: Seth,
The instructions are available here, http://www.midwestsupplies.com/media/downloads/799/FreshSquishedInstructions.pdfWhat is the IBU rating for this Deschutes Brewery Clone?BEST ANSWER: Hi Ryan,

CharlesABV?BEST ANSWER: While results will vary, you can expect to get about 6-6.5% ABVThis is clone of what beer?BEST ANSWER: Fresh squeezed by Deshutes.My beer turned out hazy. There wasn't any irish moss with the kit do you suggest using it? Beer actually kind of looks like a brown ale.
